Did you actually see the molds? The guy was a totall flake. I emailed him again asking for pictures of the ACTUAL molds and never got them. I hope that who ever won does not get scammed.

I know what you are saying. To make a plug that is worth ripping off, then make the mold that is ready to go would be WAY more then 9 grand. Probably around 30K would be my guess. Remember the mold has to be ULTRA riggid.

I saw pics of the molds, they didnt look that great, but I think with a little work, I think they could have worked. My friend tried calling pat at active thunder but never got a call back so I think somethings funny too.

This doesn't make sense. The listing is terrible. The followup is poor. The guy has very little feedback. Yet, people are bidding away. The other mold autions that I've seen never had more than two or three bids on them. What's the difference on this one?

The people who bid away knew what the molds were. The link was clear and the second page shows the molds. A quick polish and 5 or 6 coats of release wax and they are good to go. I didn't answer phone calls or spend much time on e-mails because I knew they were sold one way or the other. We'll see if the deal goes through. At this point it looks like it though.
