2015 Rossignol Experience 100's with Axial 12 Bindings 180 cm $600 Shipped New

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

OK looks like I am out for a while with a knee issue so I am selling my 182cm Experience 100's.  They are mounted for a 335 BSL and are for all intents and purposes brand new.  I did ski them 1 run earlier in the season just to feel them out. First shot here on Epic before they hit eBay. Way better than factory tune - base ground dead flat on a Montana and edges reset to 0.75/3. Third from right.

Used skis for 600 bucks, great.

Since there's been message traffic on this, I think I'll self-bump and ask the question of fellow Bears: what's your view on standard markdown for used (even lightly used) gear? Throwing it open.

One run on a very well prepped and tuned ski? Whatever the market says it's worth.

My standard line on used goods is around 50% (whether I'm buying or selling), and I don't want to hear about how it's only been used once by your grandma on a corduroy day, I don't care. But that's just me. 
 

BTW, a quick UK-based Internet search shows this ski, new, mounted, at around GBP400, or $600. If you can find it at that price in the UK, I'm sure it would cost less in the US. Maybe it's a different ski or something, but certainly looks the same to me.

Also, while it's true the bottom line is "what the market says," as a buyer, I say:

-Discount for not knowing the seller
-Discount for not being able to verify the claims (how many times used, the thing about the tune, which I don't really get, etc.)
-Discount if ski's not the exact length I want, binding not the exact model I want, sole length not exactly the same as mine
-Discount for ski being used, even once, even for one turn. New is new. Not new is used
-Discount for risk/hassle of payment via Internet to a private seller, arranging for shipping, etc.

My bottom line: when it comes to used gear, the buyer is in the driver's seat.

Well sure, a wise buyer always is, non? And a wise seller knows when to sell to another customer.

Having said all that, if you know the seller personally, it's another story.
