Gulf Coast Fisherman Magazine Vol 39 No 2 - Spring 2015 - Page 30

Product Review Langley History Three Langley reel collectors met in 2005 at the Old Reel Collectors Association (ORCA) National at Columbia Lake, TX. They agreed to stay in touch and share whatever information they discovered about the reels and the company. That friendship led to the publishing of this book. Segments of Langley history have been disclosed in club newsletters, magazine articles and other publications. The goal of the authors was to bring that history together and preserve it for all those interested in the company and their products. Their research connected to many collectors throughout the US. They not only enjoy tackle of the past but occasionally fishing with or tournament casting Langley products. This book is wonderfully illustrated including photos of classic aircraft whose technology influenced fishing products well ahead of their time, including a perforated spool that many associate with more modern fishing reels. This book is the most extensive work on Langley Corp fishing tackle and can be ordered on Ebay or directly from author Colby Sorrells, at P.O. Box 509, Mansfield, TX 76063. Price is $39.95, plus $6.00 mailing (USA). For more information about the book email langleyreels@yahoo.com.

Prospec Electronics’ Milennia PRV19 Receiver is compact enough to fit in a standard tachometer opening, yet there is nothing small about the feature set. Its biggest quality is Bluetooth audio streaming. Similar to the company’s Milennia PRV17, which doesn’t have Bluetooth audio streaming, the PRV19 has a 40W x 4 internal amplifier. This AM/FM multimedia stereo integrates USB input for USB drive playback. Allowing for the rapid charging of most portable devices, the Milennia PRV19 lets owners charge a phone. The unit also incorporates auxiliary input. A watertight faceplate ensures the receiver can withstand harsh, wet environments. UV stable for extra durability, it has large buttons for easy navigation. The receiver has a cut-out of 3-1/8" and an outer dimension of 4-1/8". Prospec’s Milennia PRV19 has a price of $149.95.
