In Topic: Rather wet DS-50...

29 May 2017 - 07:01 AM

well I think the DS-50 is an anchor now, AND if Ike does not help you?  I got a pretty new DS-51 (& f/o adaptor) for sale in the Classifieds~


I am definitely interested in your DS-51, awesome. However, I really need to sell the DS-50 first to fund the purchase. So if you could hold off on selling until I get my strobe sale finalised, that would be great.
Folks, I think there was some serious interest in this great, classic strobe when I originally started this thread. Sadly, Deco with his 'Hey, is that mold?' comment back in '12 has really made this sale much harder than it needed to be. For the last time, THERE IS NO 'MOLD'! As you can see in the picture, there is a small to moderate amount of (mostly) cosmetic rust affecting the front element. Basically, this will just change the colour temperature of your strobe light, similar to adding a Lee 628 3/4 CTO lighting gel.
I think the small amount of sea water may also be on some people's minds. Firstly, it's mostly dried up now. And secondly, as you'll note from a previous post above, there's a young diver by the name of Giles who is confident that he can fix any remaining intra-strobal saline by the use of a multi-purpose impact device. Drop by the Caymans and he'll be happy to sort this out.
If you're interested in this strobe, now is the time to act. Jolly has just wrecked his DS-125, so I suspect he may be quite interested in purchasing my DS-50 (I'm awaiting confirmation). No favouritism here, though - if you get in first, this quality piece of gear will be accompanying you on your next diving adventure.

In Topic: Ikelite SD125 - flooded?

29 May 2017 - 05:55 AM

Jolly! I just logged in for the first time in a while cos I was thinking about what you said to me about MY flooded strobe - that I'm trying to sell still - and what Ike said to us about people who flood/damage his gear. And here you are, first post in the forum, and mistreating an Ikelite strobe to boot.

I hope you are well, sir. Is the Ikelite eTTL out yet?

I shall be dropping the price of my DS-50 by another 10%, look for the post in this forum. It would make an excellent replacement for the DS-125 that you have so poorly treated.
Oh, another thought. Do you want to buy my EwaMarine bag, you can use the DS-125 in that, so you won't have to worry about the front seal being damaged. Let me know, I'll,give you a good price.
