    Default Used Saddle Pricing Help

    So I have a chance to buy this saddle (http://www.doversaddlery.com/marcel-...le/p/X1-15035/) with an extra long flap, in good condition for $750. That seems a little high for me since the price is $900 new, but wondering if $650 seemed fair, or if I should go even lower.

    I found that one on Ebay but it doesn't have the xtra long flaps... not sure how much those are worth.

    That's an entirely different model though. If the saddle is in good condition, I think $700ish seems fair.

    The Celine is a popular saddle, but $750 for a used one seems high to me, even with the extra-long flap. Price a new one and then decide if the used saddle is worth $750 to you.

    If the saddle is $900 brand new then I think $750 is high, regardless of the flaps.

    I called in and offered $600, so we'll see. I may just go with the ebay one if they refuse, but the long flaps make this one very tempting.

    I would say $650-$700.
