Good Deal? cams/nuts/hex

Just saw a listing for the following:

5x BD C4 cams, 3,2,1,.75,.5
1-11 DMM nuts
1-3 DMM torque hexes

Selling says all were purchased in 2012 and most items never used. Asking price is $240. Seems like a decent deal but figured I would post to get other's thoughts before jumping on it.

I guess my main concern would be the lifespan of the softgoods on the cams, having not been climbed on, would these serve me well for a few more years before needing reslung?

Good deal buy. Especially if theyve been hardly used the slings should be good to go for a while. People are falling on 15+ year old cam slings no problem.

Yeah, that's about forty bucks a cam, ignoring the value of the nuts and hexes. Decent price, as long as they're in good condition.

If they are truly from 2012, you could wait a few years to get them dealing. Reslinging cams is like 5-10 dollars each, so that shouldn't break the bank.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
