Used Gear Calculator
by Jen Sharp
10 August 2008


I am asked very often about gear and if a sale seen on ebay or dropzone.com is a good deal. In addition, the end of our student program has an objective targeting choosing your own gear. I have a basis of logic I start with when offering my opinion. These are those calculations. The estimates on this page are intended only to give a starting point. Many other factors go into determining value, such as condition of gear, time of year, economy, demand of a particular size, etc.
