Can anyone tell me why...
...this Polaris on eBay just can't seem to find a buyer? It has been relisted once already, and although I am not familiar with this model, it sounds like a nicely modified ski. Even though I love my MSX 150, I have been toying with the idea of having a second, and different, Polaris.
Location, maybe? Price, probably....

For some reason people dont think Pro 785s are worth much anymore. But I say we need to change the market
Buyers start paying more
Sellers start asking more!!!
I think that is a beautiful ski and If I had the money I would be on the phone with that guy. I would try to get it for a little less, but if he would part ways for $2600 or $2700 I would buy it from him.
See, you can end up dumping sooooooo much money into these things and people get attached to them and want to recover some of their investement. I dont blame em.

The biggest reason is it is overpriced. Look at the recent 785's that have sold. They are going for cheap. You can fetch stock ones for less than 2k.

If I had the heroshi, I'd consider 2600 CDN
(hey wait, that's about 2600 USD)

When it comes to resale, unless you connect with another enthusist who likes the way you have set things up, do mods help the price, have no effect on the price, or just make the ski harder to sell?
Buying a modded ski to part out is a different story, I suppose.

Prob the price and the fact he overexagerates the HP a bit. Maybe the fact it's a saltwater ski doesn't help much either.

Thanks for the input...I didn't consider the salt water history. I am use to the closed loop cooling on my MSX, and forgot that this ski has had it's internal engine cooling ports exposed to salt, maybe on a regular basis. Hard to find a ski here in Florida that has never 'tasted' the salt....
