Jumpers: Should I keep em or sell em

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.

Medium.

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

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.
