I have purchased a couple of used reels on e-bay along with a few other fishing items. So far so good, with no problems. But then again, I also bought my boat without ever taking it to the lake!! I got extremely lucky there and don't EVER suggest anyone do that!!!!! :banghead: :banghead:
I have never bought a used reel, but I have bought a reel on ebay. It is the Japanese version of the chronarch mg, and I got it new in the box for $175. :dance01: One sweet reel, matched with a G Loomis IMX mbr 782. By far the best combo I own. I would recommend sticking with a reputable dealer on ebay, esp. since you are getting it sight unseen.
Be careful on ebay. Make sure the person have a HIGH, POSITIVE, FEEDBACK!! Good luck.
