Should I buy it? I think yes lol

Ok I was browsing craigslist for some rome 390's and found this. The set up is less than the 390's would cost and comes with boots as well as board. I will most likely buy it and just use the board till I get my darkstar. I am sure he's used it more than 3 times but w/e. Seems like a steal imo

SNOWBOARD, GOGGLES, GLOVES - CHEAPPP

what you think, get it right?

plus he lives in my town so I can get this tomorrow or wednesday. I am prolly going to get the Grenade gloves as well

also if this is in the wrong section I am sorry, seemed right to me after looking.

are you sure he's packaging the bindings with the board? because it sure doesn't look like it.

"150 dollars gets you board boots and bindings". Yep he's packing it all together for $150 then the grenade gloves are another $15. Ima check it out before paying him obviously, especially cus he lives in the same town as I do. I may just offer him $200 for the gogs to and just sell some of it idk. But yea, it's a full set-up for $150

The base looks pretty scratched for just three times, check it out before you buy it. I wouldn't, it doesn't really look like it was taken care of.

My whole set up was $550, bought it off season so it was 40% off. I think it's worth it to get stuff new, that way you can know it was taken care of off the bat.

Doesnt say that anywhere on the listing?
The board looks beat to shit honestly you can tell he took it into the park you can see all of the knicks and gouges in the edge in the 3rd picture, i can count like 5 hits just in that small tiny section of the board Looks like hes done a ton of tail slides as well it looks beat to hell with all that discoloration...

If your just lookin for a cheap board to bash around in the park then i'd say maybe..otherwise thats not worth 150 dollars.

The board isn't what I was aiming at buying. But since it is the package and you can't buy only the bindings (already called him once) I figured might as well end the year with it especially cus I am just starting to learn park. The bindings were my main focus. Saving $100 seems pretty smart to me especially when it comes with boots which I will need (even though they are used lol) and a board that I can fuck up and it won't really matter. It says the info before all of the pictures. Unless I go and see that it's completely fucked then I wont buy it. But if the bindings are in good condition then I will most likely buy it.

Well if you want the bindings that much, then go for it. But they aren't going to be your only opportunity to get cheaper bindings, it might be worth it to wait unless you are sure those are THE bindings you want for sure.
