Most of the buying and selling is in th UK on Ebay. Several are askling $250 - $450 starting bids, but no buyers are bidding.
A couple have a low starting bid, one stated at $.99 and another started at $100. These have active bidding up to $150, and the action is still open. On Ebay you can state any starting price for an auction, or you can set a certain price for 'Buy It Now'.
Many sellers set a very low starting price like $.99 with the hope of buyers bidding up the price. What you can do is start with a very price, but set a 'reserve price (the least price you would accept)'. Ebay charges extra for setting a reserve price.
Keep an eye on Ebay to see what the rods sell for, not what sellers are asking. I notice that you are in South Africa. Many people on Ebay do not like to buy or sell outside of their country. That may limit your market of buyers. I have sold reels and camers to countries around the world including South Africa without problems.
