What would you say this rig is worth? Can't Post

> 1998 Fury 220, 86 jumps

> 2004 Techno 190 reserve, 0 rides

> 1992 Vector II, 500 jumps - with new velcro, new risers, new leg pads, new chest strap, elastics, and possibly some other bits

All checked and serviced.

No AAD.

Can I have some estimates as to its value? The colours are fairly plain and neutral, I should add!

Thanks,

900$, most of the price being the reserve

One thing to consider about that rig is that the reserve is noticeably smaller than the main; that's not a terribly desirable configuration.

Indeed - it's very common, though, unfortunately. I can fly a 190 so I'm not too worried. It it was a 170 or something then it would rule out this rig for me.

so you are the one buying ?
would this be a "second rig"/wingsuit rig/water rig ?

I'd be buying, yes.

I really don't want to get into the "what rig is suitable for me" are - I have other threads like that and it's not what I'm asking right now, the thread will easily get derailed.

I dont think Phishy was doing that I think he was trying to ascertain if the rig would be worth buying.

I would probably NOT buy it as a primary jump rig, but may consider it as a 2nd Rig or Trash rig

Easy to say if you aren't the one low on funds and wanting to jump.

I think it sounds like a nice rig that would be worth around 1k or just a bit more. It sounds better than a lot of other rigs I've seen around that price range. Certainly a lot better than my first rig.
