Hi
Looking for a GLX (now referred to as "classic") 10 foot rod, 7 or 8 weight (preferably 8wt).
If anyone has one and is willing to sell it for the right price, I would like to get my hands on it!

What do you consider the "right price" for a lightly used model...no nicks or scratches (Other then cosmetics and light wear on the cork)

I have one I would be willing to sell for 100 off retail...

hm...buying used items normally needs a better discount to make it "worth it" to me. Usually 50%-70% of retail since the cons are quite considerable compared to buying it at a local tackle shop with the GLXpress (or is it called Xpeditor over there?). So for this rod used I would consider 300-400 a good price range considering how used it is.

Was your rod a 7 or an 8?

rod is a #8...

considering the retail is 600....

no matter the condition, $70 get you a brand new one (with the "expediter plan" so....450 +shipping.....rod is in great shape
