Default selling gear.....

I was wondering if I could get a little impromptu, un-official poll info from you all.....

I have a few rods that I am going to let go of due to lack of use (and justification to my wife to acquire a new rod * or two* ).......

What I want to know is: is now a good time to place ads? Do you all spend the slow time in winter shopping for gear? Or is the wait too painful and you opt for early spring, when you know you can get out shortly after getting the gear?

*I am not worried about 'top dollar', because the few rods that I am looking at easing my load with are by no means anything that would call top dollar--- think really quite nice starter rods for someone getting into the sport on the cheap, rather than Winston Boron rods....

So what say you all? Put 'em on the block now (likely classifieds here-- although I doubt any of you would/could be able to use the items-- / eBay)? wait until closer to the 'fishing season' and try to help a local person out and offer a few casting tips while I am selling (craigslist)?

go.

Default Re: selling gear.....

The best time to sell gear is when you want new stuff....... regardless of the season. But I think winter is the best time to buy and sell, there are great deals because of new models coming out with the older ones being discontinued, and because of fishing less, peaople have more money to spend on gear.
