But the helmet still has the tag on it and no way did he really pay 500 for that paddle. You can get a AT for that kind of money


It seems that rafters don't have the market covered on bad deals anymore!

So, simular kayak here on the Buzz $250 to 500
Nomad 8.1 - Mountain Buzz Gear Swap

Lightning Paddle new $250 tops.
AT Super light bent shaft paddle - Mountain Buzz Gear Swap

Helmet and spray skirt $200 tops
Snapdragon spray skirt - Mountain Buzz Gear Swap

Yep I could get a better boat, paddle, skirt, and helmet here on the buzz for much less.

Whoa! I'll just leave this here for everyone to decide on their own.

alaskan multi use raft

You'd think that being near 2 of the most predominant raft manufacturers in the country, people would know better.....

Yeah, that is a rebranded STAR wonderbug or superbug (depending on the size, which isn't listed... those are about 3k brand new full retail from STAR. I had one until last year (superbug 15'). that price is WAY out of line. Actually, given the thwart positions and such, it looks like a "Lightening Bug"... $2450 full retail http://www.starinflatables.com/mods/...p?idproduct=24 looks like they added handles and a motor mount, which doesn't strike me as being worth $2k extra.

Well yeah, but it appears he's tossing in a few rolls of toilet paper as well.
