I have two used Ikelite DS161 Strobes/Video lights up for sale. 
 
I purchased both of them used last spring 2017 from Ebay.
I used them both less than 10 times (probably more like 4 times) and realized that they are just too unwieldy for instream photography.
I recently bought a Retra strobe and I think that the size is a bit more what I am looking for. So I am now trying to offload these two Ikelites.
 
One of the strobes has some cosmetic wear from the previous owner (see pics).
The other strobe is in great shape.
Both strobes are fully functional and operate well. 
Both have battery packs, sync port covers (metals screw caps) and both have the 1" ball adapters. However, I only have one diffuser and one charger.
 
Looking for $1400 for the pair - shipping and PayPal fees included. PayPal or local pickup in Seattle, WA.

Thanks for looking!

Pretty worn, for that price. I am looking for strobes to replace flooded one, but one of yours looks to have had a flooded sync cord.

Is there a way to tell if the sync cord was flooded? Both seem to operate as they should when I attach them to my camera in my Ikelite housing.
