Default Decent price for Orvis CFO?

A local shop is selling a new display model CFO for $150. I am not sure of the exact model, but it seems to be either 3,4,5 weight. Is this a decent price? The shop also has a 7' something, lamiglas 3 weight for about $175 (not sure of model).

The reel is a good buy at 150.........I wouldn't wait too long if you want it or it'll be gone. On the rod, I don't know Lami's pricing but I do have a rod made from their blank and it is a wonderful thing. Check on list prices and if you need a rod; if it's as good as mine, you're set.

Agree with William on the reel pricing, almost sounds like 'dealer cost.' As to the Lammi rod you'll need to know 'exactly' which one/model it is. They usually have three different 'lines' with (if memory serves) the G1000 being the entry level products. In that line the average cost (new) is about $180.00.

Jump on it at that price.
What kind is it? If its gold color and new stock you stole it. If it's a grey click and pawl you stole it. Even if it's the disc drag model it's a steal. Regardless of the model $150.00 is a very fair price.

Still... tell us more about it (and PM me if he has any more laying around)

I'm going to head by the shop tomorrow. I'll get some more info.

I have to think hard about picking up the reel.

Trying to save for an engagement ring!!

How much do CFO's usually go for?

If it's between the ring and the reel, get the ring I love fishing, but I love my wife more. But, if you can get the reel, it is a nice one.
