    No idea

    Went into a local c/converters today and saw 2 used dillies around 8 ply mesh for $25. I said to the salesman that they are $5-$6 to buy new. The w#nka said " i don't think they are as good a qaulity as these". Mybe i should by some cheap ones and take them in and sell them and get a profit

    I took MO Tackle catalogue into Crime Converters one time as they had double the RRP on a rod/reel combo. The stiff in there basically said if you don't buy it someone else will.

    In saying that, sometimes they have good stuff dirt cheap simply because they don't know what it's real value is.

    Yep, don't buy at Crime Converters just because the stuff is there. Do your research, know the price you intend to pay and shop around. It's possible to save some serious $'s

    ain't their fault if some dope thinks a dilly at $25 must be a bargain. It's buyer beware! Just because it is in a second hand shop (or at the markets or whatever) doesn't mean it is cheap. You have to know what it is worth new.
