Sniffing around eBay for used reels and for Shimano
At least LOTS of used reels directly from Japan

Anyone ever get one of these? Legit? Good experience?

Thanks

I've bought a couple of Okuma Epixor EF20 and EF30 reels and had good luck with them.
You can tell by the photos of the reels which are used and beat up and which are in like new condition.

I have bought several Shimano and ABU reels from eBay and had good luck with the purchases but all were American based sellers.

With the extra shipping costs from Japan there was not much difference in overall price for the same reels I could find for my needs in the US.



Slide right, coming in .... Fish On!

I recently picked up a used Shimano Antares DC MD from a seller in Japan. No issues what so ever. Lots of reels listed from tackle shops over there.

I’m a Daiwa guy and buy a lot of reels from Japan off eBay that aren’t common here. Certain Steez, Alphas Air, certain Zillions, never had an issue. Reputable Japanese sellers will have the reel on your door step in 5-6 days via FedEx.

Same here,Japan has many reels you'll never see here.I recently picked up a used(like new no wear marks at all) 18 Caldia LT 2500 XH for $85 shipping included.Helluva deal if I may say so myself.I have a fleet of Exceler's, Fuego's and BG's 2500 to 6500 so I am always on the lookout for something unavailable in the US
