Should I buy these goggles?

Hey guys, im just looking for a good used set of goggles and came across this pair. I need goggles for this weekend since I dont have any right now and need a pair asap. What do you guys think? There Smith Fuse regulator goggles for 40 bucks. Smith Fuse Regulator goggles (awesome condition!) - Markham / York Region Sports Goods For Sale - Kijiji Markham / York Region Canada.

$40 Seems steep to me for used goggles, unless they retail for like over $150. Don't you have any places that sell last years stuff for cheap near you?

Really? I think most of the places around me took off everything from last year. Like all the clearance stuff I mean. But I was gonna go check a place out today for gloves and Ill have a look at the goggles as well.

You can get last year's model Smith Fuse goggles for $30 and $40 at TJ Maxx / Marshalls all day long. $40 is too much for a used pair. Fair price for a used pair would be $30-$40 *if they included a spare lens* and the microfiber bag..

I got a pair of last year's Smith Phenoms for $40 at my local Marshalls. Brand new.

Smith Fuse Goggles 2010

Several new fuse colorways in there that are $39.95. So no, those used fuses are too expensive. You should provide a link to that person and negotiate the price down.

So I just went to shop today to take my board in for a tuneup and came out with smith prodigy's. But I think I was way overcharged cause they were on the prophecy shelf and they charged me for the prophecy's. Im going to go back and see about this. Can u guys confirm these are smith prodigy's for me? Heres a pic...

Those goggles are the Smith Prodigy Blaze Intersection goggles.

Any google image search should bring up photos. The shop ripped you off! The Prodigys were discontinued in 2010
