I ski something like this on hard pack and love it.

I wish I could, but I'm sure someone will pick these up before it reaches my price range. Good luck with sale.

Please let me know what I could have done other than hit your bid when the next bidder was below me at 340 shipped.this seems to be an unfair system. Really disappointed.

He likely listed the skis on multiple channels. Happens all the time, just gotta keep looking and be ready to pull the trigger!

Also the seller may have been PM'd days/weeks ago and already had ongoing dialogue with someone else.

I've too had been eyeing these skis daily for at least 10 days now too.

I regret not getting them now too, as they are sooo cheap.

 

When I post a for-sale ad, I encourage buyers to email me directly as checking into a forum is not always convenient.

( Oops, I see that Epic forum rules advise NOT to post telephone numbers or email addresses within an ad )

After this experience I really appreciate ebay where one can have an old fashioned bidding war and in fact its better for the seller too..even if he has to pay a fee to ebay.

I actually advertised the skis through four channels: EpicSki, TGR, Craigslist, and EBay. The prices that I posted on EpicSki is the same as TGR, and a good deal cheaper than my EBay prices.

 

The skis were sold on EBay for $449.98 shipped, via "Buy it Now." I wanted someone to buy it on EpicSki, TGR, or Craigslist so I don't have to deal with fees.

 

ARL67 is right about PM and email correspondence. If a deal seems good, assume that there are many others eyeing it too. Once my skis dropped to 400, the offers started rolling in. At the end of the day, as a seller, I'm interested in whoever offers me the most money.

 

When buying things via PM correspondence, I as a buyer usually have an initial offer. If that initial offer is declined, I increase my offers until I hit my ceiling offer, after which, if I don't win, I don't feel bad for passing the deal, because I know exactly how much I'm willing to pay for it.

 

If anything else, when I see a good deal, I'm willing to work under the table with the seller to make things work for both parties.

By my calculations these should be around $200 now?  beercheer.gif
