Silstar no longer exist so spare parts may be hard if not impossible to come by. If memory serves me right chevron are fibre glass rods so will be at the cheap end of the market and may have come from argos. as to the swop wel only you can decide is what hes asking for valuable?

chill out go fishing

Don't touch them. Although some Argos gear is quite good now, I didn't think they sold that brand of ledger rod. Too short at 8 feet anyway.

Geoff I agree, Dave dont touch this, my guesstimate of the true value of the rod and reel would be a maximum of 20.00 for the two.

If i remember rightly (i might be wrong!) when i started fishing as a kid, my mate bought a silstar cx30 as a starter reel which was aimed at the cheaper end of the market, so if you're thinking of swapping it for kit worth 150, IMHO DON'T DO IT! as said above, you're better off having a look at the car boots

both of those products were budget items of Silstar so take the advice and don't swop, your so called mate is trying to rip you off,
carry on being delighted and not disappointed,

teepee.
