What would we gain? I’d bet anyone that would see an item here would also see it in the main classifieds section.

Also, If I remember correctly there was an issue with limiting access to non-members to sub-forums. Keeping scammers out of one section is hard enough.

1-stop shopping for Trad only gear? It seems to work for AT. I know this site doesn’t have the traffic that they do but IMO it would be nice to have everything in one section for like minded folks.

I agree to an extent but, I’m not sure the logistics of setting it up for access to paid members only as a sub forum is possible.

Not worth the effort, sorry. And you'd be limiting the audience for potential sales....maybe some sees a loc of something that strums a memory from their past and they're interested...but never would have browsed the trad only....

And sorry...AT Sucks :)

@dalton916 I wasn’t saying AT is awesome for tradbow classifieds but it’s the only “everything archery” that has a separate classifieds for our gear that I know of.

I’ve bought and sold a pile of stuff on AT. I just don’t get involved with much on the general speak in forums. I wouldn’t cast dispersions on AT’s asparagus.

I’ve done a ton a ton of buying and selling over there throughout the last 10yrs and I refrain from the actual traditional forum as much as possible. The classifieds on there have gone to hell the last few years.

I wouldn’t say that. They had a hiccup earlier this year with redundancy posts, but all in all I’ve done well there.

I mean, have you bought or sold on the leatherwall? That’s Russian roulette.

Leatherwall has gotten really bad!

When I say “gone to hell” it’s because nobody wants to deal anymore, everyone demands to know your bottom dollar right out of the gate, the lowball offers are ridiculous and everyone is generally a cheapskate. “Like no man, I’m not selling you a brand new $1400 Black Widow for $500 bucks!”

I believe I’ve bought stuff from you over there before.

Perhaps, not sure.
