I've been kicking this around for a while. I see that Kil does this for the jigging/popping bluewater crowd, but how's about something for us, the regular weekend-type inshore guys?
So go ahead - got an old but still decent ABU baitcaster gathering dust in your garage? Post it up. How about a spool of braid that you no longer need? Put it here. Got a BPS Muskie Rod (Now who is THAT little monster named after?), place it here and I bet it goes right away.
For example, I know one "west end" guy that goes thru tackle like you change shirts. Not mentioning any names, but I bet HE knows who I mean and this will give him the chance to move some of his older goodies (that would mean like a season old, in his case!), and allow him to move up in class. But I hope he does remember that I get first dibs on that nice Shikari he's got stashed!
Remember though, I don't want to step on Kil's toes with this. If you have gear that would be more appropriate for his board, please put it there. But if its just "regular guy" bay and near-shore goodies, it can of course be put here. Also remember that one man's unloved reel is another man's treasure, so please don't be shy, why not just give it a try! Ya neva' know!
Anyway, just try to be realistic about your asking prices or trade requests and I dont see how you can miss.
Good luck and let the games begin!
