eBay & Gumtree Finds


Recommended Posts

Good buy, I literally spotted it just over a minute before auction end and there weren't any bids so gave it a poke at $200 and boom $202.50. Someone had set a price they were willing to pay, well done to who bought it :good:

Hmm, things went a bit weird...

I contacted the guy and asked if he'd be willing to send it to Adelaide and said I would like to pay him through PayPal. He wrote back saying that would be fine, postage to Adelaide would be $33.60 and PayPal fees would be $7.72, so I send him $191.32. He received the money and said he'd send the kite the next day but then later that night I received an email saying:

Sorry mate I am going to ring paypal tomorrow an get them to cancel [the] transaction. This is far too much headache for me right now. I think I will just sell to someone local.


So at the moment he has $200 of mine which he says he'll return to me rather than send the kite because it's too much of a headache.


I hope it works out.

Sounds like he had second thoughts or had a buddy that wanted it, who knows. Dropping something off at the post office doesn't seem so difficult. If I had actually accepted money for something, I would send the item if I wanted to or not. I'm pretty sure most would do the same. Hopefully you get your money back and good luck finding another one. I had a 13m venom and really liked it. It was my first depower, so I didn't have much to compare to but it seemed very well behaved and munched my inland gusts pretty well.

      This kite is on ebay UK. 
      See my ebay listing here >> http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Flexifoil-Blade-II-4m-Power-kite-/281747784657? << PICTURES.
      Flexifoil Blade II... The best Blade they made imo. The widow maker!    No damage. No repairs. Just perfect!    *** SHIPS WORLDWIDE *** Ask me for postage costs.  Hi,   This Blade II 4m power kite is the perfect size and ready to fly!    It's big enough to give you a good workout in the park but small enough to still be fast and fun.  This size works perfectly with the original 4 line bar that I'm including but I will also be including small Ozone handles for even finer control. Both are harness ready!    The original bag is completely gone. The zippers have corroded and the bag material has split, therefore I am including a nice slimline draw-string harness bag from Ozone which I think is better than the chunky overkill rucksack n.   Wind range of this kite - min 3mph  - max 20mph.   Includes - Kite, Ozone bag, Ozone handles, Flexifoil bar and line set, kite killer and line winder.
