Hello
I am fairly new to trad and I have been assembling a rack piece by piece. I was planning an buying a chunk of gear in a few weeks but I stumbled upon a rack for sale while browsing around at a shop. I picked up the following.

New

BD C4 .4-3 with a double .5
BD C3 2 and 1
Aliens blue, orange, purple, and silver all post recall
Metolius TCUs orange and red
BD nuts 4-13
Metolius nut tool
7 BD quickdraws
8 Mammut Element biners
5 BD locking biners
15 BD wire gate biners

Used
2 BD small locking biner
2 BD large locking biners
1 mammut ATC
1 Metolius gear sling
1 Petyl Shunt
1 Kong roller track thing...
2 BD daisy chains
8 BD 24 inch runners
4 Mammut 48 inch runners
1 60 meter rope... a bit dirty
1 BD BOA bag
1 Metolius rope bag

I paid 600$ cash

Thank you for your input

The guy who sold it to me told me that his buddy who's gear it was had fallen upon hard times. From his tone I suspected that something more sever than just not being able to make rent was the case.

If all those 'new' things were attached to someone's rack they aren't new and won't warrant new gear prices, (unless the buyer is a moron or just being friendly)

I'll bet the previous owner never had a chance to use that new stuff and the tags were still on the gear. You are right that it does not warrant new prices. I hope the previous owner is okay, just a financial rut.

no.. but if they are in at least like new condition then for the OP to go get all that stuff is way over what he paid. so he made out pretty well.

Oh yes, he got a screamin deal. If it came from eBay I'd would have been pretty sure it was stolen, such was the deal.

I still have my suspicions...
