What in the actual...

Have C3’s obtained an over-inflated state that rivals the Silent Partner?

Could just be money laundering.  All kinds of things occasionally get listed for unreasonable prices, not all of them useful.

I have a red C3 I'd let go of for a steal at $200. Only placed a few times and never fallen on.

The market should self-correct when the Z4s come out. 

Good time to be selling!!

Damn. I could unload my precious C3s for that kind of resale. Post up if it sells for that, lol!

Heavily used, 180+ lb fat ass whipping the fuck out on em.

Step off. The C3 market in Sacramento is my turf.

Ah, c’mon, we’re targeting different demographics. You’ve got the prissy, barely used boutique market,  and I’m selling a mass amount of heavily used cammy widgets to your Walmart type clientele.

I'm so glad I got 2 of those red ones before they got discontinued. Plus 1 of all the other ones.

haha I've got a red still in the package, bought it on clearance when they got discontinued as a backup in case I lost one.  But man for 200 i'd let it go lol.  If its real the influx of people trying to sell c3s for a profit will drop the market price just like the silent partner.

I’ll trade you a #0 C3 for it.

See, there’s these two factors called “supply” and “demand”...

Weird because the good ones are grey-green in my mind.   In the red size you've got a lot of other options.  Blue mastercam, black totem etc.

Grey I always thought of as an aid piece.

The narrow head in the red and yellow is still useful in many placements. You could go with those other cams, but the C3s are still spiffy and only $85 each if you buy now.
Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
