People on feebay are asking nearly as much for PM2's as what PM5's sell for :roll: Dreamerzzzz


It really all depends if its a PM2 Rev 2.3 (The last version made with all the gold plated contacts and NO MAX1044 on the board)


No idea, all i know is thats a pricey PM2!!! But 2 have sold according to the auction info so some are clearly happy to pay it.

That is someone selling it at an inflated price hoping to hook someone who doesn't realise they can get the latest and greatest new PM5 for just £40 more. That's one of the problems that eBay has never been able to solve.

Indeed!!! Thats what i was getting at before. You can buy the latest "PM5" monitor for not really a great deal more... and they need not hope with the inflated price, as they have sold 2 already!!! So i'm sure there will be other mugs come along that will take the bait :wink:

You could say that as well about the whole rower, most people have no idea about the difference between the Model "D1" and the "D2". People still getting way too much for what could now be a 13 year old rower.

Potentially it is Concept 2's fault, they should change the model numbers more often .People think a "D" is a "D" when there has been numerous improvements to the later version.

You're not wrong. It doesn't help the profiteering.

They could have even given the shiny new black (stealth) model D/PM5s a new designation.

True but at least its black and so it looks different. When you look at the questions people ask over here, typically they are always asking if it a Model C or a Model D, sometimes the owners don't even know what they have got. :lol:

A new model D over here was as low as $1850 a while ago but now its over $2400 due to the US Dollar, but I have seen people asking $1500 for a 13 year old rower. If it was a car you would get $600 for it.

They're $1500 Aud can you not get them shipped from Aus?

Someone listed a year old black D for $950 yesterday - was so tempted to buy it and resell it for $1200...!

We get ripped off in New Zealand on many things.

I order plenty of things from the USA, for example all their automotive related products are so cheap its just ridiculous.Platinum spark plugs that cost NZ$45 each over here are like USD$8. Even with high freight they are still half price. I have also bought fuel pumps and oxygen sensors. In fact I now go to the internet and source as much as I can offshore. Online orders have gone through the roof in this country.

The problem is the C2 box is too big, freight would be a killer and then you pay customs and GST on top. Orders less than only NZ$300 come into NZ GST and customs free. This combined with the fact the local distributor has a monopoly and the Tasman is the most expensive bit of sea to freight things across and you can see why the problem exists.

If I ever go to Concept 2 in the USA for a visit I will certainly look into bringing back an Erg on the plane with me.
