Like just surfing around SS (sideline swap, not waffen) you see things like on3ps used for one season sold with bindings for like 700$ Obv its not a good deal but its almost as if some of the timid buyers are buying this used shit for the same reason ppl want to ride the same model ski that they see henrik or whatever pro skier riding on tv. Like i think there is some sort of validation these buyers want; like “well this guys equipment looks like it worked well for him and he seems to know what hes doing so im just gonna buy his used shit instead of trying to figure out which skis and which bindings and where to mount them and where to go to get them mounted well etc..
do you think its because of the validation aspect more or the “going with something you know will work” type psychological thing?
because there has to be some reason why theres so manny yuppies eager to buy other skiers end of season trash for 500-800$.
otherwise it makes no sense.
