I've reached an incredibly sad point in my life where it's time to sell my rack. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it, but I just don't have the time to climb anymore. So I'm going to be selling my rack, especially my BD camelot collection, on eBay. The cams are definitely used, but are in good working order. Essentially, the rack is tripples of .5 - 2, 2X .3, 1X 3, 3.5. I can't decide if it's worth selling them individually or in groups. Hence the poll. Would y'all be more inclined to purchase very discounted individual cams or even more discounted sets? Thanks! Happy climbing and happy polling.

Why not just put up some pics and a price and sell them here?

I'm sorry you have to sell your rack. That must have been a hard decision to make!

That said, I would be more inclined to buy individual pieces to supplement my rack. As the user above noted, you can also list items in the classified section here:

You'll prolly get more per piece selling them one at a time. But it might not be worth it, or you could get left with a mish mash collection that didn't sell.
So I would sell them in small sets. One big set would require to big of a discount to move.

Thanks all for the suggestions. I ended up posting on Mountain Project because it seems like there is more "classified" traffic there. I am selling all items individually or with very heavy discounts for active protection packages. Please feel free to check out the post there.
