Let me start this off by saying I used to be a big fan of on3p, I rode their skis for 2 years prior and this would have been the third so I'm not just hating. This is going to be a long ass thread so grab some popcorn and sit back... and hopefully learn from my mistake of trusting accountability from team riders and on3p because I know a lot of their riders sell on here.
So to start it off I bought a pair of On3p Prester off Jake Doan on March 28th, Jake told me the skis were like new with one mount and they came with a pair of pretty cosmetically beat up fks 140's but they worked perfectly physically.(he had me send the money to his wife)
So I got the skis no problem and gave them the quick look over and nothing seemed out of place, a few months passed because it was the middle of the summer and I was not touching the skis, then came the day when I sold the fks off them (personally I do not like the orange, too flashy that's why I sold them). So I go to pull the bindings off the skis and I first notice that the little metal bracket in one of the heel pieces is missing (pictured below)
Here is the piece
Then I noticed that the skis had two mounts on them and the one that wasn't supposed to be there is right where I wanted to remount them, so at this point I am furious and go to text Jake about what he sold me-here is our conversation:
IMAGES WITH PERSONAL INFORMATION HAVE BEEN REMOVED. THEY ARE POSTED AGAIN BELOW WITH THE INFORMATION REMOVED.
So basically he stopped texting me and started ignoring me, so I just tried to move on and I was able to still sell the bindings to someone for $115 and yes of course they knew about the part missing and there exact condition.
The more I thought about what happened the more mad I got, so I decided to email On3p and tell them what happened hoping there would finally be some accountability given. I explained to them what happened and I even sent them all the screenshots and info I had. After what seemed like my interrogation they said they would look into it. To add insult to injury throughout the whole thing they never apologized or said I'm sorry for a representative of there company ripping me off . A week or two passed and they emailed me asking if I had an update and of course Jake was not responding so I had none. Then after that they just stopped emailing so I was just shit out of luck and still am.
I was not going to make this thread but with winter approaching and the skis being more valuable as fire wood than skis to me I figured loosing that $260 should be a lesson I learned and shared with everybody. Don't trust Team riders and look over your gear with a super fine tooth comb even if it means pulling off bindings. Also don't ever trust a company to pull through and do the right thing (especially On3p).
TLDR: Jake Doan screwed me over by selling me a pair of skis not as described then when asked to correct his bad decision he refused making excuses. Then when going to On3p and telling them a representative of their Company and Brand ripped me off they made no apology and pretty much ignored the issue.
