If you have a rod you'd be willing to sell or trade, let me know. If you want a used rod, let me know. I might be able to bring buyer and seller together. I will not be a buyer or seller, and won't be involved in the actual transaction (and won't be responsible if it falls through, either). One more thing - I never know the price that the seller wants or what the rods eventually sell for. That is between the buyer and the seller.
If you're interested, please fill out the form below to let me know what you have or what you want. Even if someone has already listed the same rod you want to buy or sell, it makes sense to list yours as well. You might have different ideas about the price, or have additional items to offer along with the rod.
One last point - this is a free service to help the tenkara
community. There is no charge to buyer or seller. I have been told (by
someone who probably knows more about sales than I do) that I should
really charge for this service - it is a service and it does take time
to send out emails to people with each new rod offered or wanted. Rather
than charging a listing fee, or even putting up a tip jar, I just hope
you'll buy some of the things that you need to buy if you do any
fishing at all: tippet material, tenkara flies
if you don't tie your own, or
if you do.
I have taken down some of the older listings. If I took yours down and you still want the rod or still have the rod for sale, you can ask to put it back.
