People often ask: "Is it worth buying a coil from your hands, via the Internet?" Here it is worth recalling the famous phrase of Konstantin Kuzmin "coils are bad and very bad, and at this level we choose." This is when we buy a new one in the store. Buying a used reel blindly via the Internet is only possible in two cases. Firstly, if you already have the exact same model. You have nothing to lose, because five different coils have five lifetimes, and two of the same have ten. Those. you can purchase Sol if you already have Sol and the Cross, if you already have the Cross. No options. And secondly, if the price is bargain. The mechanisms are so arranged that they cross out all the seller's oath of assurances in principle.
It’s quite another thing to buy a used rod. This topic is of particular interest for the reason that they are experienced. Purchased in the store often breaks on the first casts. The fishing-rod from the hands has already been tested on water bodies, and if it did not break immediately, then 99% is of high quality and will last for many years. Take it boldly. Everything around the form is secondary. Wash dirt with a soapy sponge under a stream of warm water. Scratches of decor, rings, tulip, reel seat, handle – can be renewed or replaced completely. I will help.

I wish everyone the right choice of gear and excellent fishing!
