    After his fees and the time taken to package and post it, he may as well just give it away?!

    The first time I checked, it said seven people per hour were viewing. I just checked again and it was up to twenty nine. Strangely, it hasn't been bought yet, despite the bargain price. I can only conclude that my Shakespeare aversion isn't exactly unique.

    I don't mind Shakespeare stuff, but I already have enough rods here.

    I am sure the listing is an error though and it was meant to be 99p start...

    It'd make a nice Xmas gift for a budding young angler. It's obviously a mistake - I thought someone on here might like to take advantage of it.

    If it was a 12 footer, I'd have had it without a second thought.

    They only cost about £20 brand new anyway, and this one is used. So £13.98 for a used rod ain't that good a price.

    Maybe to some.....They're £23 + £9 p&p so £14 for a twice used rod as opposed to £32 for new is still a bargain. Even if your local shop had 'em in stock your're getting a virtually new rod and £9 to spend on something else. To a youngster or someone on a tight budget that's a worthwhile wedge.
    I also reckon it's a listing error but if it's not, someone will be more than happy.
