Refund minus shipping received, and I still have the bindings. I'm happy.

The only reason I won't is because the AFDs are worn and somewhat pitted, but I can probably find some other AFDs and swap. The pieces that are broken or cracked can easily be made sound with epoxy, as they are held between the metal base of the binding and the ski, and would have no effect on the release values. I'll have them tested before skiing them, but I have another pair coming that I'll use before them. The brakes are in better shape than some I have on other skis, so I'll swap 'em out.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

You might keep an eye on his future auctions.
I agree that the item was misrepresented, but would hesitate to recommend you email other bidders. That might be construed as interfering in an auction, and eBay might react by banning you, even though you are acting in good faith.
I have learned the hard way on eBay to look at items in the most critical light, and to always check a seller's feedback. Zero feedback=forget it. If the seller can produce sharp, close-up pictures of the item I am more inclined to bid.

Hmmm.....misrepresented certainly, I do though, like the way he completed the deal. The question remains, did he make it right due to the realization that I held a hand he didn't want to bet aginst, or knew he couldn't beat.

While I appreciate Phil's tenacity, even if the guy had fully earned my fullest denunciation, I'm not the type to carry my feelings of spite beyond the boundries stated for a given venue.

In my feedback, I gave the seller in question credit for refunding my money (I must also say that he did humble himself in his final responses to me, admitting his mistake in assuming his low standards for condition for equipment were not ones he should expect others to have), and allowing me to keep the item, but, in my feedback also mentioned the broken and missing parts, so that others would know about potential landmines.

Edit: I've decided to withold the link for now to give the guy a bit more time. Here is the description though:
I would say the item doesn't meet the description. I am very hesitant to bid on anything that doesn't have pictures. And if the pictures aren't clear, I ask for more.

Yeah, this is a good point, I should really have asked for better pictures, I was lazy I guess.
