    What would you pay for a used Dominator? The seller is asking $480

    Depends on the condition of the board. With the information supplied, I guess I'd pay somewhere between $0 and $480.

    We'll assume its in good condition. Some yuppie bought it and turned out he hated surfing. It's seen more time in the closet than in the water

    Sorry for the sarcastic response... Firewires seem to run around $700 - $750 new so if you can be sure that it's actually been well taken care of/VERY lightly used, and you really want that board then $400 $450 might be a reasonable price given what the "yuppie" probably spent for it IF its in near new condition. Can you be sure this yuppie hasn't spent the last year with the board on the roof of his car driving around town looking cool while not surfing?

    Would you consider spending nearly as much for a used Firewire as it would cost you to get a brand new locally shaped board? There must be guys in the VA Beach OBX area that will make you a nice custom for $500.

    Is it a 6.4?

    Yes it was. Then I went to WRV to look around and brand new Nuggets are selling for less than this board.

    i've been eyeballing the "Fugget" (even wider and flatter than the nugget) myself, but yeah, buy a nugget. I don't know how to fix firewires so I probably wouldn't bother with one. They ARE sick though. I really like the potato series.

    IMO TOO hard to fix. These boards for some reason seem to "breathe". I've repaired the old ones with a vent plug, and a newer one w/o the vent plug. Parts of the inside are very porous and dont hold the resin long enough for it to set up, other times it seems like air is seeping out of the core, and immediately starts bubbling up your repair by exerting air pressure from the core outward. Not easy at all to fix with your normal resin/cloth/q-cell. They may be great boards but is that much "tech" really necessary for your or my surfing?

    firewire will last a lot longer. I had a nugget and the glass job wasn't very good. dinged and cracked all the time and I was very careful with it. Of course the constructions are different, but I have a sweet potato in the fst construction and love it to death. I would buy the dominator around 400 maybe a bit more if he gives you a good set of fins and it's in good shape
