Interesting! I ordered a 42" as well. Curious to see how it holds up, if I get it in a month.

I am trying to see the guys angle. Every where else I look these are in the hundreds of dollars. His only other items are junk hats and some led computer lights. I dont see how he made the jump to these, unless they are stolen, dont exists or a cheaper knockoff than a china made stuff or they are factory rejects that will be "broken in shipment" and you aint gonna ship it back....I know stuff is made cheap there and maybe he cutting out the 8 middle men that it takes normally to get a huge order sent here.
Or its a big scam and he gonna shut the account down and take his money out of bank that he set up with Paypal...
Which is super easy to do in another country and on internet...

gamble either way, and never know, could win the lotto too...

The account has been active over a year. i think his feedback is bs. there's a lot of random positive feedback that matches...

ebay and paypal both have protections... we'll see...

I ordered one in a slighty druken stupor last night as the bruins lost and I decided to take it out of my credit card

This morning clearer heads prevailed and I remembered I don't even really care for hte look of these LED light bars haha So I contacted him and he very quickly responded he would be more than happy to refund my full amount..for whatever that is worth he at least didn't try and feed me some garbage about already ordering or shipping it

I found his supplier. I can get them at $22 each (plus shipping). The catch? I have to order 200 at a time. lol

Exact same as what he is selling, and the others on eBay.

Just shows the markup on these things. I'm trying to get some cash together to grab a load. They would move quickly coming from a North American supplier.

This is my problem. That is the location I want to mount. But, I don't want to spend $175 to do it.

If this is his plan he'll fail. I've owned an ebay business. Paypal holds the money for over a month to gurantee the customer gets their product before they release the funds. At worst we have to ask paypal for a refund.

My money is on this. And not the overall bar, but every component in it. Will it still work OK? Maybe. For this kind of money its probably worth the gamble, but don't fool yourself about what you are buying.

if nothing else, it'll give me something to do.

or i'll put it on the pontoon boat lol.

They aren't. Well, I don't believe them to be.

If you buy them in bulk (talking 200 or more at a time)- this pricing is very realistic. The supplier has access to 10000+ a month.

Not likely to be rejects.

But if you smash a quality one against a tree nothing to worry about, this one who knows? I know a lot of people have seen the videos of what the big names bars can withstand, but I saw in person one getting driven over, smashed against rocks, thrown off ledges, etc. at Backdoor one night at KOH and no problems. I was very impressed. But as I said before for this price, its worth it.
