Buying Reels off of EBay

Friend recently recommended looking on ebay for reels. Found a Lew's LITE for about $80 less than normal for sale by 'sportsmanoutfitters'. Seems too good to be true. Anyone else have experience buying reels off EBay? Never used the site and could use some feedback.

I bought the Team Lite reels from them and it worked out perfect. I think I ended up buying two and they are my favorite reels in my arsenal.

If u will do a search on here there are multiple articles discussing purchases on eBay from that same seller.

Before posting I came across an old Lew's thread where a couple guys had mentioned buying off EBay, but it was a few years old. Only this post comes up when searching 'sportsmanoutfitters' as well.





Thanks for sharing Mac.

I've bought many reels off ebay and never had a problem Just check seller rep and make sure they are not a brand new seller with few transactions.

I bought a Lew's Lite for $139 when they were selling for $239 at Academy. POC Jetty posted a thread on a deal alert on here one day,it was $170ish, but then Ebay had another coupon for 30% off. But yeah, no big deal buying reels on Ebay.

All of my Lew’s and Shimano Stradics came from eBay. Legit, brand new in box. Often save ~30% when the sales are happening. Fast delivery service. I’ve had to return an item once and the refund processing was fast.

I have bought reels off ebay with no issue from reputable dealers...

With that said, I am really rough on reels and Lews Lite didn't hold up. I was stoked when I first got it and loved it. A month later no bueno. Hopefully you will have better luck.

They (sportsman outfitters) also have a website and the owner posts in one of the big Lews groups on Facebook. He usually has the cheapest price, but right now American legacy outdoors, with their 10% off code, is a little bit cheaper on the custom lite.

I just bought one on Friday.
