    Hi all,

    I have two shimano rods for sale, both in excellent condition (used less than 10 times each).

    First, is a Clarus salmon/steelhead casting rod. Fast action, 9 feet, 8-14pound rating. Medium power with 1/4 - 3/4 lure weight, Im -7 Graphite construction. This is a beauty for chucking spoons/spinners for steel or coho on the island and nicely handled steel and coho for me up to 15 pounds. Only reason I am selling is santa upgraded me to a Loomis.

    Store price is usually around $130 to $140. I'm asking $100 for this rod.

    Second, is a medium-heavy 6'6 Trevala. This is an excellent rod for lingcod/salmon/smaller to medium halibut fishing. Only reason I am selling is to help pay for a new Accurate reel!

    Store prices vary from $200 to $230. I would take $170 for this rod.

    Please message me if interested. I can get pics if necessary, but only for serious inquiries.

    i found the 6'6 trevala medium heavy online for 130 bucks fairly sure it's the same one, the tvc66mh not trying to be a dick but wanted to let you know price may be fairly high

    I don't have the rod in front of me, so I can't confirm if those code is the same, but I recently bought one of the 6'6 heavy Trevala's to augment my collection, and reviewed the prices on the medium heavies. At 3 stores they ranged from $200 to $230. If someone wants to order that rod online, pay the exchange rate, pay shipping, pay duty, etc. all the power to them. I doubt they are going to end up saving much if anything at that point, and they certainly aren't going to get it for less than what I am asking for a mint condition rod.

    Hi Vic.
    Not trying to be a dick, but why not let the marketplace decide if he's asking too much. There's no need to make a "your asking too much" post in the for sale section. If he's asking too much it won't sell and he will repost a price drop shortly. The market decides if the price is too high, same with a fishing charter, or any other goods or service for sale. Simply let the market decide what is too much, no need for negative posts in the for sale section. JMO.
