    Alright, I need to unload some gear. What are the pros and cons of selling gear on TB vs. eBay? The good and the bad of both, if you please! Thanks, folks.

    eBay: bigger market, less informed buyers, goes for what the market is willing to pay (more or less depending on ending times, current market trends) and of course the fees really add up.

    TB: smaller market, more informed buyers, selling a niche product in a community based around this product, $20 for as much as you can sell in a year, and much more open communication. Few people try to screw with you here.

    There is an added benefit to selling on TB: There's always the chance that the piece of gear you regretted selling will be back up for sale due to someone else's GAS attack. :)
