    2012 pair of 300x skies

    Hi guys. Came across a craigslist add today that the guy is selling 2 300x skis with 44 hours. He wants $10,000 for the skies and a double trailer. The skies look like theyíre in great shape from the pics he has, but we all know pics can be deceiving. Thatís price is for the package. Any known issues with these skies and what should I look for other than the usual stuff. I currently own a 2012 ultra lx. I would sell that in the spring and have just one of the 300s for me. My cousin is the other buyer of the second 300x. Also is it worth it to upgrade to a supercharged ski with the extra maintenance involved?

    That was brilliant !!

    Heís keeping the first ski and the cousin is keeping the second one .....technically if itís a first cousin that one should have the first ski and if a second cousin they should have the second ski , so that things donít get confusing !

    At that price, there may be an issue with one of the skis. If it is your first cousin, there is a good chance you wonít want to screw him or her over by giving them the ski with issues. If it is your second cousin, you can keep the good ski and give them the problem one without too much heartache for you. The way Iím looking at it is that whether itís a first or second cousin, is the most relevant part of the whole post.

    yeah, there are "issues" with the skis

    they are made from unobtanium most likely

    here are my "purity" questions....

    is he in the military?
    is he stationed in antartica and the skis are in a secure storage facility you cannot enter as its on a military base
    is he asking for payment in walmart gift cards or wire transfer and then he'll ship them to you...

    OR

    it's an ugly divorce and he has them being held by an "escrow company" until sale so his "ex" can get "her share"

    oh yeah..you have to send the payment to the "escrow" company ( and trust me, Vlad, the owner of all scammers escrow outfits- is not that trustworthy)

    price is too low to be legit in the middle of the season!

    book is $7500 each(nada) a trailer to haul those two big skis is worth about $1000

    other scammer clues..

    registration numbers photoshopped out
    gmail or yahoo address embedded in the ad copy so no trackback thru c/l

    95% of the time I ping the sellers of those lowball skis for sport purposes they never answer me, as they see my email address and know I won't fall for the scams

    run the title of the ad on google and see how many craigslists have it..final jeopardy clue.

    in short

    stay the f away from those craiglist ads, a large number of them are just scams.

    you have been warned.

    It may not be a scam. I bought 2 2013 sea doo wakes in good condition and running!! One 155 and one 215 on a nice aluminum double trailer for 10,000 this summer. If the guy says anything about registering for an auction site, or his agent, then itís a scam. You could post the link.... but that would be a big mistake on this site because one of us would snipe them quick if it was a good deal.

    Might just be someone looking to get rid of them before it gets cold. I canít offer any more help Without knowing whether itís your first or second cousin that youíll be splitting the skis with.

    Good luck.
