I've been searching around on craigslist lately and it seems that the prices people are selling the same cams for differ pretty far in price?

What do you guys think is reasonable for a used purple and blue metolius ultralight TCUs? I'm cheap so I'm going to offer $25 a pop.

I would think $25-30 would be a reasonable offer for "well used but still good" cams in that size. $30-35 for "used but relatively new" cams.

climbers are cheap and therefore want the maximum amount back.

For used active pro, I usually see around 40-60% of retail. It can go lower than that if it either needs help (like a badly frayed trigger wire or a sling in need of replacing) or if it's really old.

GO

I ended up getting the Metolius Ultralight blue and purple TCUs plus one Yellow #2 (4CU) for $75. Seemed fair. Either way, psyched on new/old gear!

I need a few more finger to off-finger sized pro, just waiting for those sizes to pop up for sale on CL... the rain hasn't seemed to let up just yet so I've got plenty of time... unfortunately... :(

It is also frequently cheap if it is stolen.
