So what was your worst purchase in 2013 ?

2012 Slingshot Celeritas Strapless version (fortunately purchased on close out in 2013). It is a poorly designed piece of junk.

North Evo. Ended up selling it after 5 sessions and that's the last time I buy anything without testing it first.

Dakine Pyro waist harness. After only 6 session, the thin strap started to rip. Took it back to the shop a few weeks ago and shop owner is still trying to get it fixed or a replacement. However, since Billabong bought out Dakine, they are giving him the runaround. That's his story anyway. Went ahead and purchased another Mystic Harness. The strap is still the weak link on any waist harness I've purchased, however, at least Mystic makes thicker straps so it lasts over a year.
