rmapaddlegear - used oars

I found this link in an older thread -

I am wondering if anyone has ordered anything from these guys, namely used oars. I am in the market for some used craplisle oar shafts that will most likely be cut to my specs. Shipping didn't look too bad at 8 bucks, but I am curious what I will get if I order some B or C quality used oar shafts(will probably stay away from the D quality). I have not yet called and inquired with the company. Should I go for it? I guess my main concern is the straightness of the oars...

I wouldn't do it. RMA is notorious for overpricing used equipment.

Thanks for the insight. Being a frugal SOB I called them anyway and let's just say the whole experience was pretty hokey..."Not sure how straight they are, no more bent than usual, uh, not sure how much shipping would cost. Let me get a quote for you and call you back." I compared it to something like "Not sure if this car will drive or break down. Come back later and I might have a better answer for you." I found that new oars would not cost but a few bucks more and would undoubtedly be straight with goofy shipping prices avoided.
