    Need ColorClector Manual or Chart

Rated:

 I have a 1984 ColorCelector {round scale version}. It seems to work, but I can't figure out what all the letters on the scale mean.
Anybody know what they represent or have a chart or old manual that explains all this??


Thanks


Fishtiger

   Letter codes from Team9nine  7/14/2008 10:35:15 PM
 The letters were just representative of a particular color the unit's dial landed on. There was a little chart that told you what they all were. For example, A=red, B=pink, etc. The screen was too small to put the color names on the dial, and some colors weren't necessarily obvious by name. Some manufacturers even went to the trouble of producing crankbaits and such in the colors represented on the selector and referred to those colors by the Color-C-Lector letter code. Bagley's and Rebel were two that came to mind if I remember correctly. You can still find some of these on E-Bay at times.

   Maybe I can help from Randy B  7/14/2008 11:42:20 PM
 The Combo-C-Lectors have a big faceplate with the codes and colors both. Since I am color-blind, I had my 12 year old son read them off to me.


A-dark red (maroon)
B-red
C-pink
D-black
E-gold
F-silver
G-white
H-orange
I-bronze
J-yellow
K-light brown
L-light yellow
M-purple
N-light purple
O-med blue
P-light blue
Q-light gray
R-forest green
S-med green
T-light green
U-med flourescent orange
V-light flourescent orange
W-very light yellow flourescent
X-peach flourescent
Y-light teal flourescent
Z-med blue flourescent


BTW, the 25th anniversary edition of the In Fisherman magazine had a big article on these devices. Also, the inventor (Dr Loren Hill) is Kenyon Hill's father. He passed away this past year.

 I might have one somewhere. I have that same unit somewhere. Give me a day or two and I will see. Rattletrap made a set of special colors. Two of those colors are my go to search baits. I don't remember the last time I used the meter though.


   Instructions for Color-C-Lectors from SoonerFan #10846  7/15/2008 7:31:06 PM
 #1...Drop the sensor down to the desired depth.


#2... Tie on a green pumpkin worm.



   Color C-Lector from JR #11020  7/15/2008 7:39:09 PM
 if the water is stained or muddy and fishing shallow, black and blue was always pegged. I have fished a black spinnerbait with a blue worm trailer ever since with stained or muddy water and it works, coincidence? My partner still uses the C-lector for crappie fishing with tubes. Find what depth the crappie are at (big tree or bridge piling), drop the C-lector and use the color it says. I must say it works 9 out of 10 time. Fad, coincidence, confidence, who knows.......

   lots of experience in tying skirts for the color selector.. from bjlc #10606  7/17/2008 9:37:47 AM
 if you take a section per band.. say white black and chartruse.. thats a color.. EXCELLENT CLEAR WATER COLOR.


another section has blue purple and chartruse and thats a great "clear green water" color..


kelly green, lime and chartruse is another band...


White and orange is a great early in the day color..


and that STUPID PINK is a heck of a color and it comes up all the time..
