EVERYTHING Red Wing

#1

Post by shoaliedude »

I'm starting this for just a general discussion of Monty Red Wings.

Feel free to post pics, ask questions (though others can give better answers than me, or throw out theories, and engage in discussions.

Hopefully Rex can keep teaching us about this one particular model. Others will probably learn a lot from his answers to my dumb questions and theories that I propose to prompt discussion.

I'm going to try to monitor Red Wing sale prices on Ebay. These are all completed sales. We are not allowed to discuss ongoing sales. Also, e should refrain from derogatory discussion of buyers and sellers. Hopefully others can bring in pricing from other "market places."

Here goes:

The values for Montagues may have changed during the past 5 years or so from the 250/300 range listed by Fishnbanjo above. Then again, maybe not. He lists $300 for short Red Wing rods $250 for long rods.

I will pose the THEORY that the "common" medium trout Red Wings will fall in the lower range, rare bass weights will be in the middle, and relatively rare light trouts will be at the top -with the shorter light trouts exceeding the $300.00 range regularly. We'll see! (Of course condition is of paramount importance.)

Thought it might be worth tracking and discussing. I don't have the time to track all of the Montys, so I'm going to just track the Red Wing that are sold on ebay. I'll try to update each month on the fifteenth. Here are the past 90 days plus one slightly older that I was very interested in - the excellently presented bass weight)

No negative comments about particular buyers or sellers please Hope somebody else can add in sales from other places so we can see what pricing patterns emerge.

First line is how the rod was listed. Italics are my comments.
