Postby doublerumandcoke » Tue Aug 22, 2006 4:12 pm

Are ebay the cheapest people on earth? Or do people just not trust buying on there. I couldn't raise the wholesale price last time it was listed. Would peole rather pay $500 for a new kite or $350 for something used (honest only 4 times)......yeah right) and you'll never know how hard its been slammed.

This is the 2nd time to try to sell a Brand New Kite on ebay. last time it was 1/2 retail price, so why won't it sell? 50% discount for a NEW lkite.

For those interested to see if it sells this time

For your info its 2006 14m Torch

If it doesn't sell i'll burn it !!!!!!!!!!!

Scott, i did like my bow kite untill it inverted and went balistic when on the end of the leash and the bar was out of reach. Went back to my 5 line for safety!

Its official Ebayers are the tightest stingiest mothers on earth.
So to re-cap a new 06 Torch still in the bag, spanky new...never used....get the picture....

!st place goes to
Ebayer Andywoo16 a (10*) ebay fukwit
He's is a joker from Cornwall, he wanted the kite complete for less than $465.........i replied i'd rather give it to a friend than loose so much monry to a stranger.

2nd Place
Denny1709 a (10*) ebay fukwit too
He offerede 300GBP.....a massive $550
i replied by asking if i he wanted a ride on my woman for that price too !!!! He didn't like my tone tho!

Dude I`d seen this Kite on e-bay and thought it was strange to see new 06 stuff so cheap, although now it seems all manufacturers with 07 kit are off loading 06 gear cheap. I know its *ucked up but thats how things are, A mate has been offered £400 for his crossbow (6 months old) cos he wants Xbow 2, again on e-bay £500 buys a new one, £250 for 05 kit,
£400/£500 06 kit, 1K for 07, what the *uck

Its a game of constant catchup for retailers. I'll not take home so much kit next season.
