Thread: Is this a bargain or what?

  1. #1

    Default Is this a bargain or what?

    Seeing that I am such a huge fan of the Stealth Brand, I was wondering whether or not you guys would agree that this is a great deal......

    http://www.flytalk.co.za/forum/vbcla...p?do=ad&id=768

    Should I go for it? Or should I finish up my Sage Xi2 12wt instead?
    Decisions, decisions?

    Okay, you got me!!!! What the hell? Is this really what these things cost???

    I just had to jump on this, cause I reckon the man who bought this setup was nailed eyes open and then the selling price, well.....What else can you expect from a premium brand???

    In all honesty the man is going to sell this probably for less than a quarter of his indicated new price total, foeitog.

    The truth hurts the heart and the pocket....

    Yip, this sale was noted at the bond office. The salesman was probably fresh out On Volvo's, cause I know they are for life!!!

    I feel real sorry for the gentleman selling the package cause he had someone pull wool over his eyes to start off with.

    I must open a specialist fly shop. I would be an honest salesman and I would sell the best gear for each person's budget. I would have kitted this man with a Sage and a good reel, not a local premium reel. I would have had peace of mind. Why? Cause this man would have had a fair share of his money back trying to sell the Sage kit, seeing that the Premium was sold for almost R10 000.

    The question also arises, whether or not the seller is actually trying to make a buck here with a bit of a sales pitch? Would anyone fall for it like they did with the Horizon up for auction in any WT you want?
