Curious Price

Postby kandrey89 » Fri Jun 06, 2014 12:25 am

Anyone know why this is so cheap? At least it seems cheap to me compared to what a Naish might sell for. last year's model after all, unless there's a "1" missing in front of $350 Lo)%

2013 Caution Spitfire 14M http://new.ikitesurf.com/classifieds/9000?search=search&type=all&location=all&price=all&brand=all&sortby=date&page=1&orderby=dsc

Not advertising, just wondering what its price might be, and if that's a normal price, why so compared to other used kites on the market.

That's a realistic price for someone that really needs to sell their kite. It often amazes me how much some people expect to get for their used kites.

Caution kites are priced relatively cheaper than other brands. They sell direct to their customer base.

That is cheaper than what is usually posted, get it if you need one. The guy probably just want to get rid of it and does not want to deal with haggling.

They are good kites. In Santa Cruz it is rare you would ever use that big of a kite. That may be the reason.

Thanks guys. I don't need a kite just now and it seems to have been sold or removed.
