Break it down like this

$100 for the ego
$100 for the 68/45
$100 for the prophecy

Orr
$200 for the ego
$50 for the 68/45
$50 for the prophecy.

Sounds like a decent deal to me, especially if you need all of the items

yeah i was thinking it was a pretty good deal. Plus I have never owned a proper speedball gun before so that will be fun to tinker with

I believe Ego6's have a fair market price of $250-$275. So long as there are no major issues with it, I think that you've found a pretty good deal.

if you like it, then it doesn't matter if you hit market value or not.

the 06 Ego is a good gun and its still as capable as something newer.

Not really a good deal, but fair for sure.

Agreed, fair deal. Offer $200, and go from there. The seller may see that as a lowball, but if the tank needs to be hydrotested, that's a good $30 right there. Prophecy isn't a bad hopper, and it will keep up with the marker just fine. But the Ego6, according to this thread: Time vs Value - How quickly an Eclipse Ego loses it's value over time , will be worth around $180 average. Who knows, you may get it for $200, you may get it for $300, or you will probably get it for somewhere in between. You won't know until you try.
