    What's been happening to me alot lately is that I get outbid seconds before the auction closes and don't have time to bid again. I hate that. You really have to bid as much as your possibly willing to spend upfront.

    I have a love hate relationship with ebay. :meh:

    Hey HeavyDuty....

    I guess that explains what's been happening, huh? I've never heard of that service before. I'll definitely try it the next time I bid, thanks for the tip!

    Ask your parents if you can do extra chores for the $40 to $50 you need. Its really not that hard to make $20 if you are motivated enough. I used to do it all the time.

    You could mow lawns.
    You could wash cars.
    You could do extra chores.
    You could sell some CDs you don't listen to anymore.

    These are just off the top of my head. People lose auctions all the time. Its not a big deal. If you are too cheap to cough up $20 lousy bucks, then just wait for the next one. But if you really wanted to work for it, you could earn $20 extra bucks easy.

    What he said.... AND the 3500 is a nice head... and 202.50 aint too bad... explain to your parents the deal you'd be getting... they'll give in. Parents always do... BUAHAHAHAAHAH!!! :)

    hey, gabu, I used that quote in my signature. My mom has 7 cats, so I actually thought of stuff like that when I was trying to get gear in high school...:rolleyes: :D ;)
