Re: Tips For Buying Used Rods;
Nice post. I recently purchased a 6 wt on my favorite auction site and after waiting in anticipation, was greatly disappointed when I opened the rod tube - one of the male ferrule tips was loose and each of the guides had a notch worn in them.
Thankfully, the seller refunded my money after I had to ship it back on my dime. It appears that not all the listing 'descriptions' are entirely accurate these days.
