General condition is older gear but fine to jump. Esp the main with 600
jumps or less is in fine condition (white canopy fabric still white etc).
Pics are in the add, those are the only pics I have of this rig. Final
asking price is 500 EUR + shipping.

greetz,
Saskia

Click here to read more about these kind of scams.

Remember:

  • DO NOT do business with anyone who offers to send you payment for a higher amount than your selling price with the understanding that you'll send back the balance.

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be acting on behalf of a "client" or another "customer".

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be from Nigeria or West Africa

  • If you agree to accept a check payment, then do not send anything, gear or "change" before the check cleared. And be careful, if you manage to clear a fraudulent check then you may be liable for the damages if the bank finds out later. Make sure your bank authenticates the check.

  • If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is.

Hi Jean

(I'm assuming Jean from your email address)

I will send more pics if I can find any on my laptop (I'm away from home
until 30 Nov).

The general condition is very good, I took excellent care of my gear, never
packed outside, I stood up just about every landing, I am including a brand
new pilotchute as the original was not as positive as I like.

The Cypres I bought new with the container and it's in for it's 4 year and
batteries right now.

Final price depends on where you can pick it up or where I have to ship to.

Where are you located and do you have travel plans soon?

Also, what is your weight, skydiving experience and current gear?

thanks
Sam

PS - you can call me on
