What do you think of this sale? Real Addi Turbos I guess?
I'd really like a few more pair of these babies...

Seems suspicious to me, but... :shrug: And all of my Addi's have gold cables and these appear to be silver, but the photo is small.

Hi Jan! Hm, you're right, I just looked at my Addi's and the cable is gold. goldish. That picture is very small. I suppose I could just ask them.

Often times sellers will start with super low prices to avoid higher selling fees .. 99 cents is as high as you go in order to pay the lowest selling fee.

However I am NOT an expert on the cables .. so I have no idea about that.

I think it is what sinistral-needler says. their buy-it-now prices are normal addi prices. another reason sellers start their bids low is to entice people to bid. so, that could play a part in it as well.

i also have no input on the cable situation.

I have bought addis from this seller and been satisfied they are real, the package is the "real" package. The cables are gol.

But you will see if you follow the auction that the starting bid is low but by the time the auction closes it will be much higher.

thanks all.... Ginny thanks for telling me you bought from them, that's the most important.

This note was included when I clicked on one of the pictures and read a bit more about the product:

Photograph is for example and is not the actual needles offered.

That is probably why they don't look like normal addis.

I'm one of the people bidding those. I haven't gotten one yet!!! :-( And I need one.
