Rod & Reel Values ????

I have an opportunity to buy some used rod/reel combos from my brother-in-law's friend. While I don't necessarily need them, it does present a good chance to upgrade some of my other older equipment bought at yard sales over the years. He hasn't put a price on them; instead he said for me to make him a fair offer based on what they were worth using e-bay & other sites to come up with a price. When you look at e-bay, prices are all over the place..........very high & very low. So, I thought I'd just ask the "experts" on the Forum your opinions. Here are the three combos (plus one single reel):

1) Shimano TLD20 lever drag (filled with mono; not sure lb test of line)
rod..........Sea Striker Billfisher; SU2040RS; 6-ft; 20-40-lb; roller tip & double roller guide at base
both rod and reel are in very good shape; only used a couple of times a year

2) Shimano TLD25 lever drag (filled with mono; not sure lb test of line)
rod..........Star Rod; B30/80HC; 5'9"; 30-80-lb; roller tip & double roller guide at base
both rod and reel are in very good shape; only used a couple of times a year

3) Shimano TLD50 2-speed lever drag (filled with mono; not sure lb test of line)
rod..........Star Rod; B30/80HC; 5'9"; 30-80-lb; roller tip & double roller guide at base
both rod and reel are in very good shape; only used a couple of times a year

4) Shimano TLD 25 lever drag (filled with mono; not sure lb test of line)
reel only; no rod; reel is also in very good shape & only used a few times a year

Couple of things to keep in mind.........He let us borrow & use them on our last fishing trip about a month ago & all worked great & were in really good condition.....not beat up, scratched up, etc.

Also, since I don't necessarily need them, I would like to get a good deal on them; but, I don't want to try to "steal" them from him......just a fair offer.

Finally, I only get to come down to the coast to fish 5-6 times per year. So, it's not like they will be used everyday. They would last me years.

So, what say y'all.........what do you think they are worth?

Thanks for your input.
