Ok, so recently I traded my Go Pro for avengedseven77’s supposedly MWB Quake. I received it with 2 pin pricks and a scratch, which were all noticeable damages, and not to mention without the box. Here are a few pictures of the damage.

And the scratch

I did contact him about the damage, but he told me the yoyo did not have damage before it was shipped out. In the pics from his BST, there are some specks that may look like dust at first, but they are distanced just like the circled damage in my picture above. He said that if I had seen the pinpricks in the picture, then I must have known that they were there, and because he stated that the yoyo was mint, I gave him the benefit of the doubt.

I also took a picture at a similar angle to the first pic, and the damage can indeed be seen from the top view.

What I wanted was $20 as compensation for the damage. This is very justifiable, considering how much a yoyo goes down in resell value just for a bit of damage. He said that the scratch was so small that it could have been a dog hair. and that I was crazy for being able to see pinpricks that are not “noticeable.” He also tries to tell me his post stated the Quake will not come with a box. After checking his post, it indeed did say so, but this was because he edited his post to say so. I have a screen shot of his BST from this morning, which states it is “Mint W/Box.”

I will be leaving him negative feedback, which will be removed if he compensates, but so far, he has been unwilling to. Do not deal with avengedseven77.
