Ebay Citica Deals on the up and up???

Recommended Posts

Just browsing Ebay tonight and found numerous Citica's with shipping right around 93 bucks or so. Anyone bought any of these from Ebay? That is definitely the cheapest price I've seen.  Abu Garcia Revo S were going for around the same price as well.  Any feedback??

I think citica's were normally around that price, I bought my 2 citica's on ebay for about $100 two years ago.  I think prices may go down a tad bit from people trying to stock up on them from the shimano rebate and trying to resell.

I got my Citica off of Ebay for exactly 93$ shipped. It was brand new in the box with all of the papers. I also got my Crucial from Ebay  8-).

why wouldn't they be? It's the same as all other ebay auctions, there are certain protections to keep you from getting ripped off, but you still have to read the auction details, payment methods, return policies, and feedbacks very carefully.

I guess I should have clarified my question a little clearer when I wrote my thread.  I was just simply asking if anyone has bought from Ebay, or more or less, were there any other places that had lower prices.  Someone did post that *** did indeed have a cheaper price on the Citica DSV's.  I wasn't accusing Ebay of being hard to buy from on the account that there are tons of scammers, lol.  I apologize to any and all Ebay'ers out there that took offense-  "insert sigh"   ;D

I've purchased 2 STXs from ebay without a problem.

Poor_Fish is a great guy to buy from. Not sure if he sells Citicas , but he sure does sell revos!

X2 on poor_fish.  Have bought 16 or 18 reels over the last 6 months off of E-bay.  Every sale was solid.  Watch their feedback score.  Anything under 97%, check the specific feedback and find out why they got the negatives.  Also, when your looking for specific reels, punch them up different ways.  abu ambassadeur, garcia, abu garcia, even misspell the name sometimes brings up sales not normally found.  Try to find reels that end at off peak hours and if you pay more than 10 0r 12  dollars shipping, that's too much.  Goodluck!

Here's a x3 on poor_fish. Also I'm someone who did buy Citicas from him. Got three CI200D for $91.28 each shipped. Just received them Friday and fished with them for the first time yesterday, I'm very impressed. The CI200's have the wiffled spools vs. the DSV models which don't. I also purchased two Pflueger Trion spinning reels from him about two months ago and they were around $25 off the least expensive retailer I could find.

Been Ebaying for about three years now, both as a seller and buyer. If you are careful, discreet, and a very patient person there are some great deals to be had. The "Buy it  now" auctions are the ones I seem to watch for if I am comparison shopping against the other retailers. Seems like there is always a better deal on Ebay, even including shipping. Recent examples include the Citicas of course, also I purchased an Acer 22" LCD monitor for $40 less than I would have gotten it at the retailer who was the least expensive. Purchased two Bagley Small Fry Bream form an online tackle shop the first part of last week, good price considering, but then I won auctions on the same two Friday and will be receiving them for right at $6 less.

I try to stay away from the used stuff, just can't be sure about it. I have bought used but it's been about 50-50 on satisfactory items so I just don't go there anymore.

Other reels I intend to try and purchase from Ebay in the near future are the Daiwa Exceler BC, Revo S, Abu Garcia Silver Max, and Gander Mountain Guide Series spinning reels. Watch, wait, bid, win.......life is good!
