Some guy wants to trade me his Nitro Duck 68/4500 Adjustable Tank for for two xbox 360 game + 90 cash. Should i lower the cash amount? dont know how much this tank is worth.

The tanks hydro date is 09-03

I almost read that wrong. And I would have exploded.

Anyways, find out what kind of tank regulator it is, that is an important factor. It's hydrodate is in 03, which means it is a 5 year tank, so you have until 08 to use it before it needs another hydrostatic test.

So, assuming that an 360 Game has an average resale value of 15 dollars, then your two games + 90 is reasonable. But this all depends on how new your games are, and what kind of reg is on the tank.

If it is a megareg, 110 should be the maximum you should pay, as that is all that it is worth. so, you'd want to lower your cash to around 80 or so. If your games are close to new, the value of your games will raise to 25-30 dollars, so you could try and lower it, say maybe 10-15 dollars off what you were planning on adding, which would be a good deal for him.

Thanks for the quick reply... I will ask him about the reg tomorrow. I have pics but cant tell. I just see 2 gauges on it.

My games are fairly new NCAA 07 and Ghost reacon

I would say that's too much.

If you consider that you can take 2 360 games and trade them in at a Game Stop for 1 new one you should say the 2 games are worth $50-60 depending on what game you trade them for.

So the guy is asking you for $140-$150 way too much for a 68/4500 tank. I would not pay over $100 for a tank like that. Heck the last one I got was a 3A HP (crossfire Reg) and it only cost me $60. So I would tell him he can have either the games plus $50, or the cash.

But that's just me, and I'm very conservative in where i spend my money.

....and it is probably a 3 year tank....goes out of hydro this month! Add $30 to $40 to get it re-hydroed.......
You could pick up one with a year or two left for $100/$125 if you shop hard....(not an adjustable, but do you need an adjustable reg? ie..you shooting an Angel?)

How do I know if its a 3 year hydro tank? I dont need a adjustable one but so far he's the only one that wants to trade for the games lol. I will post pics of the tank so you guys can see later today.

Thanks for the info

Get the numbers off of the label on the bottle and go here:

Here are the pics of the tanks. Thanks for all the help jimmy. From the site that you sent me, I saw the tank needs hydro testing every 5 years. So now I need him to tell me what type of reg

Do you need a 68/4500 or do you just need a nitro tank?

Only reason I ask is cause you can always get a 48/3000 for around $50.

I rather spend a little more and have a bigger one.

But thanks anyway

Your basically giving him $190 for the tank if you bought the games new. I wouldnt do it. Thats why I usually never sell my games becuase you buy them for $50-60 and you play them for a month and then sell it for $10-20, to me it makes no sense, its better to rent it for $5 and beat it in a week. But back on topic, I would trade the 2 games and $40 for it not $90.

09-14-2006, 05:42 PM
agreed, even though i did that exact same thing lol..but i learned my lesson..eb games is a rip-off, so no its not a good deal cuz u can sell those 360 games for atleast 40 bux on ebay if they are kinda new

09-14-2006, 08:04 PM
I see your points I told him I am not doing it. But anyhow The reg is a Nitro-Duck X-Stream.

09-25-2006, 05:26 PM
he lowered it to 40 + the two games...thats pretty good right

09-25-2006, 05:33 PM
40 + the two games is a great deal. IMO. Considering your not going to get much more then $30-40 for the games... Some more experienced people might think differently though.

09-25-2006, 05:35 PM
I think I can get about 50 out of both so the tank would be about 90...Not that bad

09-25-2006, 05:42 PM
go for it
