E Bay Pricing on Fly Rods

I understand the importance of supporting your local fly shop..that being said...it's interesting how many "buy it now" listings for major brand fly rods list the full retail price. On some brands you have 100 listings. I'm sure the full retail price listing reflects the mfg. Price support programs. I can't imagine anyone ever buying these rods at full list price when they can pay the same by just visiting the local fly shop.
My question is....are these listings just openings to encourage less than retail offers...anybody tried this tactic.
Not shopping...just interested.
