It's made by "True Temper" and I've been told it's not collectible and fairly common, but that's what they say now! (tongue firmly in cheek). I remember when old Ford Mustangs from the 60's were common, now try and buy one in good condition. It's not a Peerless, but it sure does sport that Peerless look, eh? Even if you don't agree with that statement, you have to agree that for 20 bucks, if it works, it can't be beat. At the very least, I'll use it as a back up rig to throw in the trunk of my wife's car, just in case.
