/ Why cams so expensive second hand
They hold their value and their condition well. 30 seems steep for a secondhand 4cu, I'm selling some c4's for less than that secondhand.
Wait for the right price. £30 for sceond hand cams unless nearly new is just stupid. Some people will buy scrap value cams on ebay for £10 so its no surprise.... good deals in shops, clearance sales etc are the best way to go unless you find someone honest.
The link to Needle Sports in a post I made that went missing I guess breached site guidelnes. Its easy enough to find though.
so back on topic you think £30 is a good price because it does the job just as well; I think cheaper, new, from a reputable dealer with proper consumer rights is a much better deal.
....and that's before the extra 5% off if you buy 3.
Puzzles me what people will pay for them. Of all climbing gear, cams are probably the most prone to wear and tear: they have soft slings, fragile wires and grit wears the moving parts.
I would expect to pay *at the very maximum* new price minus ~20% because of VAT, and that's if it's virtually brand new. As others have said, just offer a price that you think is fair; if the seller is offended, no wukkas.
