    Can't agree with your beef. He found someone that was willing to take the risk and pony up with the $$'s to buy the entire package. If you read thru the thread he was completely up front with that being the preferred and really only viable method.

    If I had put up the kind of dollars that buyer had too and deal with all the shipping and storage issues I would resell it for a higher price also.....it called a free economy and he needs to get a return on his investment.

    I guess that my money wasn't good enough for him. I offered to buy the entire shipment from him. He never even had the courtesy to reply to the multiple emails.

    Thumbs down Re: EAC Listed for sale

    he sucks-i offered to take a large amount of them for myself-they replied they were just waiting for someone to get back or something-he commited to sell them and then ...-on wall street this is called renegging on a trade. i would be very vary of dealing with these people ever again and will continue to make a point of this on here an other places. pure BS

    I guess the phrase....no good deed goes unpunished applies here.

    Having been on the selling side of the equation with divers its it not a rare thing for the seller to get the shaft when spending a large amount of time answering questions and the diver commits to something and then does not follow thru with the money leaving the seller holding the bag with materials bought to help out.

    I have reread the thread and I still say the guy was very clear that he was trying to help out the community, he is not a retailer and he explained the situation fully so I would not be calling sour grapes just because you did not get a great deal...no unbelievable once in a lifetime deal on the EAC. It can't be such a big issue with you or you would have purchased a CCR that used granular sorb.

    If I had to guess I would say he read all the emails and PMs and accepted the earliest dated offer that complety emptied the storgae area. I know I would have.
    Who knows, offer the new guy $55 each for all and you may be the guy who gets to sell them individually.

    Hey who would have the resouces to grab them all and an interest in not seeing them dumpped on the market at a super low price? I would'nt be surprised to see an existing scuba dealer have a small sale on them soon. When I had a retail store I allways kept an eye out for blowout sales on things I stocked and often grabbed them myself if they were near wholesale.

    Had I been in CONUS I would have put in an offer myself.

    Thumbs down EAC prices

    I see now that the RBW store has folded the 2 sources i have used for supply seem to be trying to outdo each other with price hikes. What they will end up doing in this economy is driving people away from the optima and to the HH . Bulls Bears & pigs a old wall street adage that applies here. basic economics. dive Rite should make sure that there are alternative sources so there is normal market competition. Has come to the point where the pile of them i have in my basement is worth undercutting them just for sport!
