    I recieved a rod today from a friend that was custom built for him. Just curious if anyone knows anything about these rods and thoughts On them. I am looking for a new gps fish finder and if this is worth something significant I might consider selling. Any thoughts on value? It’s a Freds custom tackle 10’ Moocher with a movable reel seat. Brand new never used, I just added my reel to it to test it. Let me know everyone’s thoughts, thanks.

    Hi, Where are you located, and how much do you want for it?? I might be interested in it if you are on Vancouver Island so I can do a visual

    Not sure what it is worth, which translates to no idea. Unfortunately I am in new Westminster. Thanks

    Ok, Thanks very much, but I will pass on it at this time. Continued good luck on your sale.. Appears to be a nice rod.

    It's a Hardy 10ft. tied at "Fred Custom Tackle", what it needs is a Hardy silex for the Vedder or a Hardy Longstone to mooch to mooch with. You might regret it if you sell it.

    I have a similar 10’6” with floating reel seat I bought new from Fred in the 1980’s. It’s a beautiful rod, it was my go to steelhead outfit for years. I couple it with a hardy silex.

    I’d expect that rod to be worth about 175-225 bucks. But that’s a guess

    Thank guys I think for $350 would be fair from my research online or I would consider a trade for another 10' foot rod with cork grip and $200 otherwise I think it will stay with me. Would help me put money towards and new sounder/gps. Thanks for all your input

    $350 would be crazy top end. Maybe new retail. Its a beautiful 10 foot Hardy. $150 to $200 would be market value used.

    I did some searches and seems like most people were asking in that price range used after I found out what I had. It is brand new and never used but I am thrilled to keep it.
