    I have a Purple Newell S332-5 from the 80's-maybe early 90's. I still use it for my jigstick.

    I was told it belonged to Rollo Heyn from the kid who got it from Rollo's significant other.

    I saw one on Ebay a year after I bought it from him, probably around 2000-2001 for $350.00 AND GOING UP!

    That's my story.

    I have had the same purple 332-5 for atleast 12 years that my buddy Corky Yokoe sent me when he worked at Newell. Sent me a cool 533-5.5 with a bright red handle too. That purple reel got alot of looks over the years before the were available to the public and is still one of my favorite go to reels for seabass and yellows.

    Here is acouple of pics of my son with it from 6 years ago...
