I work at Cabela's but we have to sell them for the list price of $470, older stock we can discount. My pro-deal with St. Croix through work gets me rods from St. Croix cheaper.

What I meant was cost, not retail... in which case given your volume you're in the lowest wholesale cost bracket without a doubt. We were in the highest. Pro deals rule, we had a special with Sage last year = to 33% of retail, well below wholesale or the standard pro deal.

I agree, pro deals do rule. Having one with Sage, Ross, St. Croix is really good.
