WTB: Ice Axe, Shovel, Probe, trekking poles

After dragging my feet for years and always borrowing these items, I'd love to pickup some or all of these items at a wonderfully kind price.

While I appreciate the priceless life-saving value they offer, I still cringe and find myself offended at the retail prices I see for these machine-formed hunks of metal.

If anyone has any of these items sitting around unused or outdated I'd be happy to entertain a deal.

Prothers deal is wack. You can get a brand new tracker for $305, so for barely more than what he is selling for, you can get new unused gear, or a brand new tracker and used shovel / probe..

Real Cnd Superstore has a compact shovel under 20 bucks. Only down side is the shovel part is plastic. But it has a excellent design.. the handle is standard T with 2 pole extension with press in buttons. Where the great idea is the shovel has 2 angles the handle can go into it. One is for using the shovel the second is so the handle slides into the shovel. Just wish the shovel was metal as I have no idea what temperature the plastic can take before breaking. Surprizes me that none of the big names haven't come up with this great design. Well beyond the BlackDiamond style with the curved handle.

Just my .02

If some one showed up to ski with me with a $20 Canadian Superstore brand plastic scooped shovel, I would either trade shovels with them, or send them home. My life is worth more than that to me and to cheap out like that shows a real lack of respect toward partners.

Weegit, I have an ice axe I have been thinking of selling. It's a Black Diamond Raven, 65cm long. I've used it a few times, so there are scratches and whatnot. A steel headed ice axe doesn't really depreciate as much as other gear though.

I'm hoping for around $40, but make me an offer.

A plastic shovel? They're crap. They break. Not to single you out but what's with offering advice when you don't know the subject matter?
