Default Never Summer Cobra (limited edition) 161cm for sale.

My buddy just put up an ebay ad for his 2013 limited edition Cobra. I figured I'd help him out (and maybe one of you) by posting it on here. He's interested in trades too.

You think so? We saw these go for around $500 not long ago and I haven't seen any barely used cobra sell for under $400. You can always email him an offer if you're actually interested and not just some douchebag.

The Cobra is a $560 board brand new, plus this is the limited edition Brother in arms top sheet. $400 shipped sounds about right to me.

Guess it depends on what you think the douche move is.

The brothers in arms was sold by NS for $350 to active and former military as a thank you. So yeah I think trying to sell it used for more than he paid is fucked, given the promo NS was running.

I suppose its arguable and I take some of the credit for the price point, since he asked me for my opinion. As it stands now, he's selling it for slightly less than the break even point when factoring eBay fees. When watching these sell on ebay before this season began they sold for $450-500 new. The NS promo wasn't open to the public, so the selling price is null. For the price its at now, you're essentially getting a limited edition board that would sell for more had it been the standard edition at this price point. With all that considered, I don't think its whack at all.

Besides, if it doesn't sell he can always adjust it.

Exactly. If he bought the standard Cobra at a discounted price and put it on eBay for $359 barely used, would anyone think twice about it?

Bseracka, people got brand new Protos for $250 off of buy snow, then sell it for $400-450, is that "whack" too?

At the end of the day it doesn't matter and we'll find out what people are willing to pay for a $350 board thanks to ebay.

My thoughts for what they're worth. There isn't really anything limited or special about the standard brothers in arms boards. Don't fool yourself into thinking that these decks were hard to get a hold of. There was a run of 4 or 5 spec ops boards that were give to wounded warriors for auction that could be sought after as that was a very limited run. I would put the brothers in arms at close to the same level as a promo deck like breck brewing, or monster. The big difference is that one is given away for free and the other had a msrp of 350.

In your second example you're talking about people taking advantage of a retailers mistake and their decision to honor the sale price, even though the proto should have been excluded. If the retailer decided to honor the sale that's on them and if someone wants to resale one for a discount on msrp that's on them.

This isn't an equal comparison, in one example you have a used year old board being offered for sale at more than msrp (350) and in the other example you have a new, current model year board being sold for less than msrp (550).

Never Summer is doing the right thing by creating LTD Edition boards and selling them below the standard MSRP exclusively for US military. If these boards, which were sold at a discount, are later marked up by the original purchasers then Never Summer may decide to discontinue this program.

It is the other soldiers that might benefit from NS's program in the future that I am concerned about, not the buyer of the marked up board. Just one man's opinion, others may disagree (but they would be wrong...j/k).
