$30 isn't bad, but still a little low. They should do $50, so then it brings it down to the cost of buying the original/redefined boards(125-130). So it's kinda even, if it was like that I would do that in a hearbeat.

lol. No good deed goes unpunished I guess. Seriously, use some sense people. They're not saying "YOU MUST SELL IT BACK TO US!". They're just making that option available. I think it's pretty cool of Virtue to offer something for their old boards. After all, what other board maker gives you guaranteed cash for their old stuff - even if you broke it?

So can we advertise to pay $35 for the boards? Then we can sell them on ebay for 50+?

I'll address your first point... if you want to go through the hassle to sell your Redefined board and wait to collect the cash, etc etc. you'll most certainly get more like you said. So go that route. No problems there.

Your second point, is a wonderful idea if we wanted to go out of business. We spoke to over 100 dealers at the recent Paintball Extravaganza and they all loved the idea and also presented the idea to our Beta Army private testing group of players just like you and me and they loved it too.

Naturally I'd like to make it a better deal. Actually I'd like to just give everyone a board because they're so cool and I'm certain you're gonna love it once you try out all the new revolutionary features. But I'd like a pony too!

So if you want to have a no hassle experience, take the board out of your gun, walk into your favorite pro shop, get an OLED board for $30 off that same day with no waiting or effort. (of course if the pro shop has any questions have them call us, we notified them all in advance, but sometimes not everyone finds out right away!)
You want a pony?

Anyway I agree with above, it'll be worth it to sell the old board instead of trading it in. Paying $140 (price before oled's release) for a redefined board, and then only getting $30 is taking a huge loss on our side. that means we still have to pay $150, the price of ANOTHER redefined board and then some. Not worth it in my opinion.

I have to give credit where credit is due though, no other company offers a trade-in at all so to Virtue.

umm what? I never even mentioned what they were going to do with their old boards. I would assume that they would take them apart, and make Oled boards out of them anyway. Or just take the raw materials they got from those old boards, and make some more oled boards.

Nope, not a chance. We've got enough boards on hand that we wouldn't turn around and waste the time to sell these used boards as new. We'd have to go through and retest them all even if we wanted to do something as foolish as repackage an old board as new. And why bother doing that when you can just take a board off the shelf and sell it?

Nope, this offer is pretty clear. If you want an OLED board, and have a Redefined board the deal just got better.

And really how many people that had Redefined boards who bought OLED boards turned around and sold their Redefined board? Not many I'd guess. Most people probably have their other board sitting around in the packaging in their closet or in their gear bag.

If you want to sell your board this offer changes nothing. If you didn't want to deal with selling your board, the deal just got better. I don't see how you can complain about that...

Just wondering but your calling this an upgrade program...

under your top10 reasons to buy virtue your 10th reason is "Lifetime Warranty & Lifetime Upgrades: Virtue is the only upgrade board guaranteed for life." to me under just that statement means it should be cheap. but I don't see 150 instead of 180 anywhere near reasonable under that statement.

just my opinion though
virtue still gets an though

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
