I've sold everything from cars to darts flights on eBay, including fishing rods, I charge a very fair price, absorbing the cost of a cardboard tube or an envelope, the buyer pays the lowest amount I can possibly make it...that's just me though

I agree 10 is reasonable but not when you wait a week for it to even be posted...then what, minimum 2 days delivery (5 more likely).

My grievance wasn't with the price....I apologise for being misleading....I only meant extortionate in terms of, cost reflecting service....or not
