The official "Im bidding on" Thread

Ok, so we all know that ebay has alot of pb gear go through, and probably alot of rare straps. This thread is kinda a "first come, first serve"/"dont **** with my bid" thread. So if your bidding on a strap/mask on ebay, post the description, bid, and item number to let other ballers on the nation know not to bid too high on it. Paintball is a community, so help each other out. And as for "the seller will lose money if we do this", ebay has a reserve price on there for a reason, so they will get their desired amount of money for their item, or else not have to sell it.

please do not post items to sell here

and keep in mind, that if we find out that you are bidding on something just to **** with someone, most of the strap traders will be in here and see who you are, thus ending most of your strap trading career.


so just keep that in mind and this will work great

What you're proposing is placing a competitor restriction on the demand side of what would otherwise be a free market transaction. It's dishonest and I find it fundamentally disagreeable.

In other words, if you're too cheap to pay more than the next guy for semi-rare commodities, then get used to doing without.

yeah Gives us a way to communicate, with out letting the info leak to the public so to say, meaning because if every one can see this then the information isn't really being preserved (sorry sounds eliteist) (?). When is Matrix back?

And what your doing is not thinking it the whole way through. Say I put my Olive retro strap on ebay and dont set a reserve, if people in this thread us it to its advantage, they will get a good deal, because they used a resource to there full advantage, where I did not. But if I put it on ebay and put a reserve of $50 on it, Im making sure I dont have to let it go for cheap, and people in this thread can still use it to there advantage, and hopefully get it for less than they would want to spend on it.

Sorry but no Ebay links, and no B/S/T type threads. This will simply be telling people about what items are for sale on E-bay so this breaks both those rules.
