Welcome to the Nation's BEST Rod & Reel Trade-In Program

Turn Your Unused Gear Into Store Credit

 

Here is what our customers are saying about the Trade In program

"Just wanted to send you a big Thank You for your help with my trade-in earlier this year. Your trade-in program is the best! I’ve been putting the new gear through its paces so far this spring. Here are a few pictures of the variety of fish I’ve been catching. Couple of nice bass out of the lake. A 8.6 on the Antares and a 11.3 on the Calcutta GT TE I got last year and one of the Stealth Custom spinnerbaits from y’all. The 5.5lb speckled trout and red were caught on the CI 4+ 4000 spinning reels. Notice the tag in the red. The red was tagged this past June and grew 7 inch 9 months. Thanks again for all the help."

Instant Trade In Allowance on Used Rods and Reels!

American Legacy Fishing Company's Xpress Rod Trade-In Program allows you to upgrade your old rods or reels, and turn your unused gear into store credit you can use for anything on site or in store.

Here's how it works:

Gather up any of the rods and reels you wish to trade-in and , Get a quote quick: Use the Trade-In Form, call us at 877-402-6350, fax us at 812-402-6352, or walk into to our beautiful showroom in Evansville, Indiana. We will promptly quote you a trade-in value based on the model and condition of the merchandise.

On each trade-in, there will be a $10, $20, or $30 fee for a prepaid return shipping label depending on whether you are trading in rods, reels, or both. If we agree upon a trade-in value, you will be free to pick out any fully priced items that you are interested in purchasing.

We can complete the transaction in two different ways:

Option #1

  1. Determine what you would like to purchase, we will charge your credit card for the full price of the item(s) you are purchasing.
  2. We will ship those items out that same day with a prepaid return shipping label.
  3. When you receive your new items, take the new ones out and replace them with the used.
  4. Drop the package off at FedEx, and we will refund your credit card for the difference as soon as they are received and inspected.


On each trade-in transaction, there will be a $10, $20, or $30 fee for a prepaid return shipping label depending on whether you are trading in rods, reels, or both.

Option #2

  1. Determine what you would like to purchase.
  2. We will put the items on hold for you and email you a prepaid return shipping label.
  3. Package up the used items and send them back to us.
  4. As soon as we receive and inspect your items, we will charge your card for the difference (if there is one) and ship your new items out that same day.

Values

Depending on make rods typically are appraised at 25% – 45% of current MSRP. Reels range in value from 20% – 40% of current MSRP. All values depend greatly on the condition, age, and brand of rod or reel being traded. Our goal is to offer you values that reflect the current resale value (what you would expect to sell it for) of your equipment less a 10% fee for handling, etc.

We expect the condition of all rods and reels to be honestly and accurately described. If we receive the trades in lesser condition than described, we will re-evaluate the values and call you back to discuss possible options. This very rarely happens, but we do greatly appreciate accurate descriptions of your trade-ins.
