Thread: Wanna trade?

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Wanna trade?

    After trading some hooks for flies recently with another member I thought I'd offer up a trade of my own.

    I have an older API (pre HMH) vise in extremely good shape that I am offering for trade, it has the midge jaws. It's very similar to the vise in the link, only difference is the collet on mine is not stamped with the company logo.
    [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/B002YKTXUM/ref=dp_image_0?ie=UTF8&n=3375251&s=sporting-goods"]Amazon.com: HMH Spartan Vice with Pedestal@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41l79a9jMhL.@@AMEPARAM@@41l79a9jMhL[/ame]

    Anyway, make me an offer......

    What do you need? Give me some ideas and maybe I'll come up with something you need. I need a vise.

    Boz I was hoping he would reveal what it is he wants also but I guess were just going to have to throw him a bone and see if he bites....

    John,
    I am thinking of thinning out my gear room and off hand I can only think of a few things that may be worthy of trade.
    Let me know if this type of stuff is anywhere close to the type of trade you are looking for?

    Sage DS2 5wt 8'3" (Never used by me but looks like it may have been used a time or two.)

    Badlands 2200 day pack (Used once or twice, but it’s the old style of this pack)

    Granite gear backpacks, vortex backpacks along with some others I am sure (used and new)

    Old germ chair lift from Alta (Very used)

    Hundreds of old classic flies (Tied by my friend’s grandfather many years ago)

    I have backpacks of all types, tents, climbing gear, skiing stuff, GPS’s, jackets, backpacking stoves and much more that I am thinking I could get rid of in replacement of upgrading the vise.

    Let me know if I am anywhere close and I will take a better look and throw you some more options if needed!
    If something doesn't quite add up I likely have several little things as options to make it a fair deal.

    What type of value do you put on that thing anyway?

    Peace!
    Watson

    Alright lol, you guys are getting the hang of it now!

    watson, I had the vise listed for sale in the "classifieds" for $150, I was originally told to list it between $150-200. So.....
    My curiosity is peaked about the ski lift chair from Alta. Can you tell me more? pondering the Sage also.

    Boz, I'm sitting pretty well right now as far as lines go, and as tempted as I am about the International Speciality Foods I think I'm gonna pass.

    Got anything else?

    One thing I should tell you as far as food offerings go....mrs fysh is allergic to shell fysh and peanuts.

    Watch an old pro at work boys...

    I have the same vise except mine DOES have the name stamped on the collet, obviously making the vise worth more to collectors. Send me $50.00 and your vise and I will ship you mine. Up the selling price to $200.00 and get your original price point without trading fishing gear for food. Don't risk the shame Fysh!!!

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.
