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 never had either but am about to in about another week. Just too good of a deal to pass up.

I like the warrranties that are offered with the new reels....well that and you can generally take them back to where you got them from for a full refund.

Be careful on ebay. Make sure the person have a HIGH, POSITIVE, FEEDBACK!! Good luck.

Yah the deals are real tempting! Only thing is most of the reels on there do not have manuals with them.

I was actually looking on eBay at the Quantum TG400cx and DS300cx 6.2:1 vs 5.1:1

Can you copy that link from ebay and post it here? I would like to see them myself.


If you feel like its a good deal then get them. Trial by error. I personally have never bought a reel off of ebay but that isn't to say I wouldn't. If the deel is good enough then I would.

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.

All good advice and keep your eye on the shipping charges. Most are reasonable but some try to increase their profit margin through high shipping charges.
