Ah, Loop must be using some form of Jedi mind trick to lull ebay lurkers into a frenzied state of irresponsible fiscal euphoria.

I bought a Loop Evotec LW 8Eleven on ebay. I don't really need it, I just figured I could turn a profit on it. Between the fees for posting it as well as the % ebay takes of the final sales price I figured I'd throw it up here and see if there were any takers. If no one is interested I'll post it on ebay on Saturday night.

I paid $350 for it, including shipping. It retails for anywhere in the neighborhood of $495 - $510 depending on the fly shop. I'll settle for $350 + shipping so I at least break even. If you live nearby I'd be happy to meet you somewhere to drop it off.

Just think, for around $560 you could have a Loop spey rod with an Evotec reel.

I wish I could afford them both. The new kayak really put a dent in the funny money fund. I should start calling it the "noney money fund" these days.:hehe:

Mark -

Impulse buying I see? ;)

I'd like to take a look at it. I haven't decided whether I will be getting a rod or reel this year but that's a killer deal.

Are you going to the CCA dinner?

I don't know if I'm attending the CCA shin-dig or not yet. That is the weekend that my wife heads to VA for a week with my son. It may be a "quality time" issue.

As for the reel, I'll hold on to it and hook up with you somewhere so you can check it out.

Worst case scenario, I could always drop it off in Charlestown with Striblue, for the trip up to the CCA banquet, and pick it up after the weekend.

Thanks Roop. He'd drag it down to the pond near my house if it didn't outweigh the little bugger by 35 lbs.:D :hehe: :D
