      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Buying used gear

Recommended Posts

Ok, this against my better judgement, but I need to ask... anybody ever buy used gear (from ebay, g-sale, homeless guy under a bridge, etc)? Specifically nut or cams. I have just invested $$$ on some used gear that looks to be in good shape, but just wondering if any other cheap skates out there have done the same.

I know, I know, I'm risking my life on someone else's hand-me-downs, but if someone was just replacing their old/heavy/out-of-style shit with new stuff, and it's in good shape, then what's the problem?

Quick comment for you concerned types:

Yeah, my rope/runners/binners are all new, but some of the nuts/cams are pre-owned.

So long as the duct tape on the rope will pull through the bieners without catching too much it's probably still fine.
