    TCR is 2 models back, TCX'S going second hand between R3500 and R4500 depending on condition. So R2000 to R3000.
    But that's not bad for a stick that's been used for the last 6 or 7 years.

    What is a good application for TCR 7wt? perhaps light salt water or estuary work perhaps?
    To me a 7wt (particularly a TCR) seems a bit like a rod without a use. Too light for salt, too heavy for Stillwater.
    I sold my 9wt TCR for R1500.00. I think that any more than R2000.00 is too much. There are a few TCX's (ok not 7wt's) going for around R2000.00. and the TCX is a better rod than the TCR in my opinion.

    I think a good estuary rod for SA.
    Plenty backbone, to cast into wind etc.

    Application - light salt, bass, barbel, largies.

    In mint condition R3000, and there is demand for that stick, just have to find the right guy. But you're right, R2k is fair value.

    Yes the TCX is a better stick.

    Fair value for TCX's us R3.5k

    Lets not overvalue these rods. The TCR has little demand anyway, and this being a 10 foot 7wt, is going to have to find the right home, and I don't think that's going to be easy. It might be worth R2k, but its a 10 footer according to the thread title.....you really think its an ideal rod for these applications......hmmmmm? Im not sure, but my mind doesn't think so. All the applications that you have mentioned would ideally be suited to a 9 foot rod. I think the 10 foot option these, would be a liability actually. Could be wrong, but in thinking about what's needed for them, I would go the 9 foot option.
    Granted I have never fished with a 10 foot TCR, so I am probably wrong, but when I consider where a 10 foot would be an advantage, none of those advantages would translate to the applications that you mention.

    Well he was looking at R2500.Its in a good condition but the tube has a few marks.He is in Bloem.
    I have cast a tcr before and found it not to be as fast as they made it out to be.Smooth yes but slightly heavy in the 10ft but still a very easy casting rod.
