    Hi ET

    We have seen that rod, and yes in mint condition they go for a few dollars, however, it has had the reel seat replaced a fighting butt added.
    Anyone who whats some of the DSTV channels like, Porn Stars and the likes, will know that that takes all the value out of the rod.

    We did not give it a resell value.

    Having said that, a true collector of such items might buy that rod just for the tube, it has some value.

    Regards

    You meant Pawn Stars right???

    I have seen a few of these rods restored, some damn ugly and some just as good as the revamps Tom had done on those Hardy's of his.
    I would actually buy a rod like this and restore it to the original condition without anyone knowing what I did to it. Some would argue that you take away the value and some would say you add value to it. Tom's Hardy's was a gift, now they are nothing more than priceless. Would he ever sell those? Not a chance
