    What is the problem as long as the price is right and the stuff is not stolen? I bought a complete setup from a M series poster. Boots, poles, skis, bindings, skins all new for $625 Guy even threw in a new Osprey daypack and paid shipping. I had never heard of worn wear. But really used shorts for $40.

    Nothing. But how do you know it wasn't stolen? Did you ask for the original receipt?

    This place isn't really about Gear Swap anyway. I come here for the tits.

    Don't think that would be good, for example I picked up some og Bibby pro's from the moment guys a few years back for half what I could have sold them for on gear swap. ..they have a low past count.

    I say troll/flame them...

    BEFORE BUYING: Watch out for resellers!

    This place use to be awesome when the community managed themselves without all the moderator bs. Mags sold to mags or to those who had develop a presence on the board. If someone wants to buy from a low post jong let them. If their pricing is out of wack call them out and witch hunt their ass out of the community, but quit babysitting everyone. Just my two cents and you can agree or not I don't really give a rats ass.

    +10-20% if rare/burly/super awesome sought after thing
    +10% New in plastic/with tags

    You need more money than that? Take it to flebay or craigslist. That isn't a maggot deal.

    So with this example, a pair of OG Spatulas NIP would only be 70-80% of original retail, and it would move here because of what they are. I don't shop gear swap to pay MSRP. Flippers often were called out, shamed and every other post stalked and mocked until they paid their dues. Have we gotten soft in our own self regulation?
    This ^^^ There's also a "scammers" and "props to..." sticky at the top. I work too much, don't post a lot, but this place should self moderate. Minimum post count is getting kinda epic ski/teleturns... I am low post count, been here for years, read more than I post, but seriously.

    Has anyone checked the guy who happened to post the Legend Pros for $550? People need to respect gear swap for helping a mag out, passing gear on to get someone else skiing or to try something new.

    Ex. My protests have been sold on here 4 or 5 times now.

    I saw we publicly humiliate the resellers until they go to EpicSki (or what ever it's called now).

    ^^^^^ This!!!

    As someone without a lot of posts, I am glad that some mags have been willing to hook me up with gear and I don't think a minimum post count solves anything. Some mags could probably post less.

    Slippery slope.

    That said, even though I've sold a pile of gear here, in the last couple years, hardly anyone has left any "props" for me in that thread - occasionally in the for sale thread that I already have though.

    I dunno...I just had a zero-post JONG ask me about a Patagucci vest I had for sale last spring for $60, but I told him that since USPS prices have risen a lot, I'd need to do $65, and he said he was gonna ask me for $50 shipped. Nah. I deal with people who contribute a bit, but otherwise...

    Anyway...
    Gravity. It's the law.
