    They're about 1.5 years old, both in excellent condition and I'll ship to Australia. Payment will have to be made through a Paypal confirmed account to include shipping cost and packaging fees.

    I have both a confirmed Paypal account and 100% eBay history since late 90's-acct name: marshellarts

    Thanks Marshmellow,

    I'd seen your ad, but when I can buy Z-240s new (and shipped for $700au - about $650US) I really can't justify your second hand prices.

    I know in previous years pairs of Z-240's have gone for around $800 US (Inon Z-240 Strobes, Type IV (Pair for $800)) so if you're willing to be a little more flexible on price I may be interested.


    Cheers

    Ryan

    Ryan,

    It's only recently I've paid attention to the affects of the Yen devaluation bringing prices down, so I appreciate the feedback. I've never seen a pair of used Z-240's Type 4 go for $800 (lucky buyer who got them). The latest eBay "new" sales from Hong Kong range from $650-680 shipped as you mentioned. I suppose the lack of "used" sales on eBay are probably for the reasons you stated "
    I know nobody in their right mind would want to sell these gorgeous strobes". With HK dealers selling at new currency rates, it becomes obvious that one must drop their price if they want to sell a used one. Reef Photo and most other major dealers in the US are still today asking $799 new and may be taking it in the shorts for the time being until the Yen rises against the dollar. If I were you, I'd take advantage of these great prices and buy new before the rates go back up.

    I'm returning to the Philippines in 4 months where I live half the year. Finding low priced used equipment there is almost impossible, you often have no choice but to purchase new if you want something, especially a much sought after strobe like the Z-240. I noticed local dealers there are lowering their prices to $725 plus tax to offset the affects of Hong Kong discount dealers.

    Therefore, I may just keep the strobe as a back-up, give it to my girlfriend buddy who I just gave my Canon G10 rig to for getting her certification, or sell it in Manila before I sell it for $400. I'll let it go for $550 at the moment, otherwise I'll be one of those crazy people who are not in their right mind that you refer to :-)

    One day I will dive the Great Barrier Reef.....lucky you.

    Happy diving in Australia.

    Cheers,

    Marshall
