Crapping on peoples "For Sale" threads.

Recommended Posts

I'm not talking about these first post scam job guys, but the people who post things with a price that may be a little higher than you'd expect. Wouldn't it be better to notify someone by PM, than to out them in plain view? I'm all for protecting our members from a bad deal, but on the other hand, I'm also for allowing sellers to have a for sale thread that isn't littered with posts on how perspective buyers can undercut them.

Just my take. I figured it was time for me to rant a little.

What do you think?

Wouldn't you want to know if you could get the same product at a less expensive price?  I don't think it can be called a DEAL unless BOTH parties make out.

It's a mixture of things. A couple of times, long time members were trying to get the high end of a fair price for an item , that BPS or Cabelas had on sale for lees or the same mney, I pm'd them to give them a heads up.

A few times there were out and out badd offers being made by first time posters and some of the kids were asking about the product so i asid something to call attention to it one the thread, maybe I was out of line, I don't know. Didnt want to see a kid getting taken advantage of  I get a lot of stuff off that forum and have only been , well not burned but the item was not what was stated, the gentleman though made good by taking the item back

Yeah muddy man, I guess there are certain instances where, like you mentioned, it would be appropriate to make mention of it in the thread itself.

It's all about the kids  ;)

Google has a nice little " product search results " anytime I see something posted in a forum I would be interested in I do my research. Google it, check BPS, check Cabelas, h*ll check Walmart if you have to. Sellers and/or buyers may not be aware the item they are selling is discounted somewhere. So a PM to a seller or buyer is a great idea, I'm sure the price would be adjusted. Do your homework folks.

I would like to think most fishermen/women are being as honest as possible, just uninformed or unaware the item can be gotten cheaper new. See I have this sickness that won't let me part with any fishing gear, but it allows me to buy everything I think I need....or is that want? ;D ::) ;D

Good topic to be discussed. ;)

P.S. Got anything for sale? haha

Yeah, I have an older model BPS Extreme Woo Daves signature worm rod with 6 inches broken off and retipped at 6 feet, the cork has been sanded down to nothing, and I'm sure the guide inserts are ready to pop out any second now. $475 shipped in a fun-noodle.

;D

A good while back a thread ran sort of like this one.  Here was the gist:

If you come across an item that you are interested in,  post.

If not,  don't.

I've heard the latest thing is to wear ice fishing gloves while you're out big game fishing.  I wish I knew someone selling that sort of outfit to get me started.   :D

i understand what ur saying and i try not to get involved unless it really apperent that there tryin to rip someone off

i have sold alot of things on here some i try to give a really killer deal

some things i sell for way under what there worth and some things i feel i sould get close to or a tad above market value

ill give 2 to examples

i was trying to sell my g-loomis rod and wanted 180 plus 20 shipping = 200  brand new from g-loomis was 240 plus shipping

i also was tryin to sell a pinnacle matrix reel only used maybe 5 times

new it was $150 seen them going for 100 on ebay

i wanted to sell it for 50 with a extra spool

hell of a deal if u ask me

sometimes u can give a heck of a deal other times u try to break even
