I think it is a fair price. The one in question on the bay like noted is the spool only. I grabbed mine for a hair under what hes asking new on sale. Slight inflation since they are harder to get now and the price seems right to me! One of those reels did just sell on ebay buy it now for $270.There is one on eBay NIB for $129 includes shipping. Just curious, but how do you justify the price?
