This kid is offering to sell me these: http://www.hockeygiant.com/eaglex72.html
in my team colors for $70. He says it's brand new and he's a friend so I believe him. I'm not a fan of how they look, but is this a good deal?
I'm currently using Pro 4 Roll's but they're red and totally clash with my team colors.
I see what you mean, but I'm a strong believer in if it's too good to be true it probably is . I don't know, I've bought from this kid before (he sold me a stolen AK 27 blade for $20 and I'm still using it).
1. Don't buy stolen gear. You help create a market for stolen gear, which creates an incentive for people to steal. One day, the person who gets stolen from will be you. Even if it never happens to you, you are making it that much worse for all the rest of us to participate in the community of hockey players.
2. Don't buy anything from someone who once sold you stolen gear, even if he says this item isn't stolen. If he's selling you brand new gear at cut rate, something probably isn't right. If he bought them for his own use and has the receipt to prove it, but decided he no longer wants them, that would be legit. But in that case, why can't he return them for full value? Something is likely not right here.
3. Don't even associate with someone who traffics in stolen gear. Eventually, you may get caught up in something you don't want to be caught up in.
He told me it was stolen a week after I had it installed and all, after asking him why he sold it for so little.
He actually used it once before he sold it to me, but it was still pretty mint. (the AK blade)
He goes to my school and he wanted gloves that matched our jerseys so he bought those eagles, but apparently he got Vapor XXX's that he prefers over them so he wants to get rid of these.
haha how come you say ouch? I thought eagles were quality?
ive never liked them theyre overrated for a pair of hockey gloves haha
as for the stolen blade. nice work on your bud there.
i havent paid for a blade in the last 5 years i get my buddy to take them hahah he takes em i use em.
