I have a set of 88" HC 2000 stokes tip jumpers, and their use has gone from twice a week to twice a summer without going over the ramp.

Due to some teaching requirements changing in the state of Illinois that are going to occur in July 2010, I decided to put another endorsement on my certificate while the requirements are still the old requirements this previous summer.
Translation: I took 9 hrs of graduate classes in one summer on top of working 40 hrs a week.

So I had no time to ride my jumpers let alone hit the ramp this summer. When I wanted a relaxing set on the lake I would much rather take a few passes through the course, or a fun trick set. Everybody knows how big of a pain in the astronaut it is to put on all of that jump gear, set up the jump switch on the perfect pass, put on the bindings that put your foot to sleep after one pass down the lake, etc, etc......

Has anybody ever sold their jumpers and regretted later?

I am really pushing towards keeping mine because I got such a good deal ($600 blank w/ a brand new sling).

Let me know what you guys think.

I think you should sell them, but only if it is to me. ;)

I'd sell em without the sling; however they come with new wiley double stuffs first $1000 takes em.

The only reason I got em for a steal was I bought em from a friend.

Medium.

They're cranked down hard- they put my foot to sleep halfway down the lake. I wear size 10 shoes

$1000 takes em.

Obviously you don't want to sell them too bad.

No. No I don't. They're still fun to ride, I know I'm rusty, but if I have em I'll ride em still.

But if I could get a grand for em, I'd put that towards a boat.

Keep em! I kept all my jumpers after the knee injuries(stokers/one ski/freestyle skis). I still ride my 72's and will take my big ones over the ramp next year! You will regret it!!! They are too hard to come by! Esp at that price!

Keep em. I sold mine years ago and have been sorry ever since they left the house. Of course my friend is wiser than me. He won't sell them back.

Thanks for the advice on keepin em guys! I have been waffling about it, and it's been hard for me to decide. I'm leaning toward keeping em!

I have a pair of 67" EPs that I've ridden once (not even over the ramp) in 3 years since I bought them. I did sell my 72" Jobes though, and kinda regret it but I did make the new owners very happy. I would keep them if I were you.
