Leading on the only "fair means" rack.
I've been working nonstop and haven't had time to do much of anything else, and I've found that sites like spadout don't really cover outside of a small group of sponsored sites.

If you're looking for cheap gear, other than laborious surfing, what methods/sites are you guys using? Is there some priceline.com Shatner pension fund for climbers I don't yet know about?

Example: looking to buy some Fixe Aliens for myself for XXXmas. Probably going to order them straight thru Kevin unless someone happens to be selling them for a huge discount, anyone heard of a big full set Alien discount?

Buy 5 or more cams at Neptune Mountaineering, get 10% off.

You could save yourself $20 per cam by considering buying the Totem Basic cams instead of the Fixe Aliens.

Just a thought.

Agreed, Corneau. Reviews I've seen seem to rate the Totem Basics better than the Fixe's anyway (a quick search should find that direct comparison - I would for you but I'm posting from my phone)

I can say from using CCH, Fixe, and Totem Aliens that the totems ones are definitely the smoothest and best finished out of the three.

That being said if you want a black, blue, grey or offsets that include those sizes you have to go with Fixe.

OP wants us to do the leg work on his cam search? So that he can buy cheap cams for himself for Christmas?

10% helpful, 50% shitheads, 40% completely off topic.

Thanks, ten percenters. Took your suggestions and found some deals. Surprisingly enough, I was asking because....

I thought naively that on a climbing gear forum, a question about gear deals/sales would be taken at face value.

Here's hoping there's some Vagisil in some very crusty stockings this Criss Mass, Mighty Lords of Internet Snarkiness. I bow to your uselessness.

Anyone who posted up donate to the ASCA in the last five years?

Moooom, the guys on mountainproject are being snarky and sarcastic to me! Mom says: come on upstairs I'm baking some cookies and we can play "chutes and ladders" til their done. That will make you feel all better.

Again, the answer is yes.

Although, I'm not sure what, exactly, that has to do with you not knowing how to use the internet.

Out of 11 replies, you only deemed 10% of them helpful, and then thanked them (plural)? Perhaps you should work on your arithmetic, might help you figure out pricing and discounts on those cams. The ones you want to buy for yourself. During the season of giving. Which you want a discount on, but don't want to look for it.

Edit: Sorry to be a 'shithead'. Honestly, I'd just say go with the Totems, if you buy all 5 you get 10% off. (hehe)

They should have the blue's out soon.

And no one makes the gold or orange anymore, not really worth it after red anyways. Another reason there aren't many used ones out there.

I also got PMed some helpful information, making my math yet more deplorable than already stated. That said, 2+2=5 is more rational than "your momma"-ing total strangers and expecting that spraying about karma will somehow smudge over empty, fruitless negging. For what it's worth, Eric, my deceased mother would surely appreciate your insensitive comments, thanks for taking Guideline #1 so to heart, it's really inspiring to see MPers stepping up to make the world a better place.

Thanks are still in order, math or no math it's fact that sifting the useful from the slop is part and parcel of the process of gleaning actual information from the site, I'm planning on starting a 501c3 with the money I save on gear through the holidays to offer spaying and neutering to mountain lions and poseur tweets alike, and if Ol Reggie really donated then I'm a monkey's UncleFucka. In short, bah humbug.

Merry holidays, flame on, flamers.

And you're basing this claim on the fact that you somehow have knowledge of my personal spending or the fact that you have personally fucked a monkey?

You can dish it out but can't take it Smarty/Killer/The Dread Pirate and that's just your names from the last few months.

Look in the mirror HYPOCRITE. First you spray about donating to an american sport climbing association and I reply with a thread about helping truly needy climbers in the Philippines and get accused of spray? Not that there aren't needy american climbers but their is a big difference believe me.

Lastly--Mom's. Are you really hurt by my comment to ask your mom to buy your cams or that your getting picked on by snarky and sarcastic people on the internet?? Really!! Put on your big boy pants Smarty I'm assuming you can dress yourself without help.

Eric- I have a couple figure 8 belay/rap devices if you can use them and want them. Mom's means "belonging to mom". Moms in the plural of mom.
