    Warbonnet resale value

    A Warbonnet Blackbird closed on Ebay today for more than the original selling price. Sold for $172.50 Listed Warbonnet's site for $160.

    Better than most investments these days

    Or a sign of someone not doing their homework.

    ebay is famous for bidding frenzy... most of the reason I only "buy it now."

    More to the point - who sold the blackbird? hmmmmm?

    How many of us were watching it? I had hoped to get a bargain on this non-name brand item, but this hammock thing is getting crazy. When you see used Hennessy stuff going at ridiculous prices on THIS forum, you know it's getting too mainstream.

    His Bushbuddy didn't bring retail.

    I realize this thread has most likely gone cold (and you could probably care less...) but FTR, I was the individual who purchased this BB from ebay.

    Oh, I did my homework - to the point of exhaustion (and ridicule by friends). That is why I chose to go with the BB. I initially contacted Brandon - he was very prompt with a response and extremely helpful. Unfortunately the time it would've taken to get one made wouldn't allow me to take it on my scheduled trip (Main camping/mountain biking/hiking trip of the summer in the Lakes Basin area of CA).

    It just so happened that there was a brand new one selling on ebay (how often does that happen???) Perhaps hammock fever is more insidious than I initially expected, and I certainly had no intention of circumventing/undermining his business. Regardless, I can speak very highly of the quality and based on my experience would definitely do business with Brandon in the future. Those nights of sleep were ones I will not soon forget.

    Mike had it right, though. I simply looked at the extra $12 dollars as though it were convenience fee/priority shipping. Patience really never was one of my virtues.

    Judge me if you must.

    That's what I thought too when the post first showed up. Perhaps because you did exactly what I would do---have done in similar circumstances---- planning gear purchases in advance isn't really one of my virtues...

    No judgement. You made an informed decision and decided to pay for expedience. All very rational.
