    Seller says he got all the dough!!! Who knows???

    They sold. A day after I paid, I decided to get on here and browse cuz that I though I'd here about them. It reminds me of my other hobby, bmx. Members want to know who got the local listing or the one on eBay. They were cheaper than restoring a high end bmx. They coming to WA. I be been a polk fan since the late 80s and always wanted a set. I have m10, 7,and an lf 14. I just joined the club today too so be nice. Lol

    I just decided to use the laptop and realized I signed up years ago and now just getting in to it. Now, I realize why I had such a difficult time trying to register and why it gave me the user id I have.

    I joined Uship and put it up for bids. The first bid was a white glove for 466. I then had a second bid. It was a blanket service for 455. From TN to WA, I figured it was reasonable when you take into consideration distance, gas, time, etc. A lot cheaper than I could do it for myself. This was a factor in deciding to buy or not buy them. I went for it and hope all turns well. I the end, I took the white glove service.

    On ebay, these look like they are in rough shape! All the screws look rusty like they have been exposed to mositure.

    Now he's updated the text to claim they're 198s. Previously, he was claiming 194s

    Why is it that SRS 2 "for sale" advertisements NEVER specify blade/blade or pin/blade?
  • PolkieManPolkieMan Posts: 2,446

    Original Srs-2 would be blade/blade would they not?

    "Original" defined as "the first iteration/first design" would be blade/blade.

    "Original" defined as "Not modified" could be either blade/blade or pin/blade.
