Re: Buyer beware / read this
Like others, my experiences (about a 1/2 dozen) of buying through the Personal Classified forum here have been universally excellent.
In one case there was a mixup on shipping method which made me a little nervous for about a week, but it was a completely honest mistake on the seller's part. As a bonus, the rod was, in my opinion, in even better condition than the seller advertised.
