$5 10-rd tube?!

If I can $5 each for my old crappy 10-rounders, I'll be retiring earlier than I thought! Geesh...won't even include the 10 rds of paint in the auction! AND charges $2 "materials and handling fee" on top of shipping cost!

personally I like the fact that something like that would require AT MOST 1 dollar to ship, and the thing says 6 bucks to get it to me parcel post. what a con artist.

This is a good example of what is wrong with eBay. Yet another person who will NOT leave feedback until feedback is left for him, makes the whole rating system useless.

He's even got a sob story:

Quote:
Hello and welcome to my auction. Before I get too deep in explaining this item, I would like to share with everyone why I am auctioning off all my belongings. I have been going on short term mission trips to a small rural town in Mexico for a few years. I am a carpenter by trade and have been helping with the construction of a church as well as helping with local homes. These humble yet inspiring people have change my life and my view of what is important. I have made it my mission to move down there for a year and do what I can for the town and the great people who live there. So, in order to accomplish this I need to pay off my debts and raise enough money to get myself and tools there.
That's from the one where he sold a 48 star flag, 4th down from the top in the feedback, I think.

I wonder if I should send him a question as to what makes his tubes so special that they cost $5 each, while Wevo's "obviously inferior" tubes only cost 15 cents. Hell, even with the speed caps, their still only a quarter. You know, ask as an ignorant consumer.
