I use a good search engine to search all of craigslist ads for gear.
I use this website, SearchTempest - The EASY way to search Craigslist
I usually do a search within a 2000 mile radius of my zip-code (I live on the east coast of the US).
Last night, I was searching for fly rods and came upon some recent postings...a couple Sage 2 piece Light Line rods, a Scott G series rod, Orvis Rocky Mountain rod and reel, and other Sage rod models. I'm sure other brands are out there if you use a specific search term(Orvis, Winston, etc.).
Of course, price, relative to condition, is the deciding factor but you sometimes find that one bargain out there.
