Re: Requirements: Used, Good, Available, Cheap. Any advice?
i picked up, on this forum, both a 5wt St Croix rod and complimentary reel (okuma i believe) for less than $130.
Ard is right, keep your eye on the forum classifieds - i know from just cruising the last few days there are a number of good quality rods for sale here. I even saw a $500 fiberglass rod, which was in nearly new condition, offered for less than half that.
If rods are offered here, sure some will sell fast, but a lot of times, waiting is the name of the game to get the best price, particularly if someone really wants to sell it.
