Ultimately, selling and buying used skydiving gear is more of an art than a science. Experienced skydivers often rely on:

  • Personal knowledge and experience: Understanding various factors influencing value.
  • Online forums and communities: Discussing gear value and sharing expertise.
  • Reputable gear shops and resellers: Seeking professional appraisals and assistance.

Safety always first: Remember, skydiving equipment directly impacts your safety. Never prioritize price over thorough inspection and verification by qualified professionals before buying or using used gear.

Remember: Skydiving is a sport with inherent risks. Prioritize safety and responsible decisions over relying on an oversimplified "calculator" approach when dealing with used gear.

    • Market demand: Some brands and models are more sought-after, influencing their used value.
