**5pk SOLUTIONS String - Quicksilver Elixir

5pk SOLUTIONS String - Rapid Elixir


Beautiful strings and the colors are much better in real life. Here is the Quicksilver on my mobile gamer. In person it appears solid silver, not bluish. I really like.

Yep. Same here, seems almost a shame to actually use them.

OD Kamuraiju from the yoyo day sales. Slapped a G2 Rage bearing in it. Also got a CLYW Ditch.

I can’t get over how good that pink is. I feel like your pictures show it better than the site did.

Edit: still is.

eBay scares me. That’s the only reason I haven’t gotten one yet lol. I keep hoping someone will bst one but it hasn’t happened yet.

Good lookin’ out though! Thanks Keith!

This is fair in general but IMHO you have some trust in the seller (as I believe he’s a fairly trusted member of the yoyo community) and payment would likely be via PayPal which if you BST is a platform you already use, so in this case eBay is just the storefront of the transaction which would otherwise be functionally pretty much equivalent to buying on the BST.

Apologies for the enablement :grin:

It’s funny I’ll use that bay place for old antiquated IT parts without a second thought but a yoyo I think twice and really look at the rep of the person.

I’ve probably placed around 30 yoyo orders there and only had one bad experience. A seller listed several different vintage throws, all relatively cheap and individually listed, so I picked up about 7 of them. They were only $2-$5 a piece, but he wouldn’t combine them all for shipping, so I would have paid around $60 in shipping alone. He didn’t make a big deal out of it, and the items eventually dropped out of my cart.

Same! And this is despite my dad’s ordeal with ordering a Toshiba PDA back in the wee ol days of unregulated eBay. It showed up, sopping wet. We had no recourse but to eat the cost. But now I’ll drop a hundo or two on a server or processor on an impulse.

But toys? I’ll definitely pause. Tbf tho, throw prices on eBay seem to be inflated to all heck. Unless you’re hunting for deals

I haven’t bought any tech from the 'Bay in at least 15 years, but I need to rebuild my Plex Server. I may have to browse the 'Bay for something other than throws now…

High recommend. I’m actually using a disk array that I snagged for a S T E A L that I’m actively using for my plex server via a nas. My only complaints (both of which I knew) is that it’s the loudest equipment I have because of fans and it’s hot af. It’s the space heater to which AMD processors aspire.

But def recommend. My homelab/server is 3/5ths sourced from eBay (from HDDs to whole computers). It would be more if I didn’t need the non-ebay stuff sooner

Just got a nice little gem in the mail today. :slight_smile:

I remember there being rumors that the gems played better than the regular PSGs. I don’t know about that, but they are quite purdy.
