Re: [rss_v] Has anyone bought a first rig/canopy without testing it?

I bought my rig without seeing it or testing it. BUT I did background checks on the seller and spoke to a few people from his area and got a bunch of detail and hi-res pictures. I wouldn't recommend doing it, but it worked for me. The gear was a very good price and based 600miles from me (while I was in the UK).

I've just had an interesting experience. I've got my eye on the market for a canopy, for when a good deal comes up. Saw something advertised the other day and contacted the seller via email (the only contact detail he had given).

I got back a page long rant about Nigerian scammers etc and how he didn't expect to hear back from me! Hopefully his attitude means there isn't much demand and I can pick it up for a bargain.
