Dodged A Bullet At Cabelas

Recommended Posts

so while I was out the other day I stopped in cabelas and hit the bargain cave for any deals that may be

I found what appeared to be a new unopened quantum exo PT spinner behind the glass

I asked to see it and Inquired to its history

I was told it was a customer return. Unopened and unused. Tag was 159.99. And they marked it down to 129.99$.


I take it and begin my slow distracted walk to the registers

As I circle back through fishing to play with all the rods and reels I start thinking about it

I just have an odd feeling so I took it back and has them open it up

It was used


No packaging inside

Had about a 1/4 spool of clear line looking to be 8lb which had been broken off and dug into the spool tight and the bail was loose and shakey

They said

"Oh yea I remember now, this was a present for someone's dad and he didn't like it, he used it a few times and returned it" that's why the line is on it. He probably didn't know you can tighten the bail and thought it was broken". What a steal buddy we will take another 10% off for you

I said I'll pass.

Just the fact of the previous listed details and the fact that there was several loops of line tied to the bail?

Like instead of using a keeper they tied the line off to the bail ?
