Thanks! Yes, it had dirt inside bubble and bad pic. Seller had some bad feedback. Said there was a crack, but no image of the crack. So lots of red flags. Glad it turned out ok.


Yeah, I was prepared to bid a reasonable amount, but it was quite a risk. A risk worth taking- looks great 8)

Seconded. I too saw it but was worried it was too good to be true.

Congrats Kvavik on such a great bargain :D

Thanks for the kind words guys! Was really nervous opening the package, but seller had packed it better than most ebay sellers.

I love the blue saber variant.

Was looking for one myself a couple years ago. Then the price of them went insane.

Its mad that they were still issuing them on the 65C.

Are there examples on 77 and 79?

I know I have seen one on trilogo.
