I've been wanting a couple more outfits so I decided to buy 2 6000 abus off ebay. I watched them for a couple of weeks and bid on a few. Most of them went within 7 or 8 dollars of the price of a new one from CC, so I let them pass. I finally bought one for 40.00 [including shipping] and one for 44.00. There are numerous sellers advertising them as brand new but missing box and papers. When I received them they look fine. I can't find anything wrong with them but they have an "X" painted on the bottom of the foot. I am familiar with the workings of a 6000 and when I looked inside there is another X inside the clicker side cover. I am satisfied with the reels and the price I paid but just wondering what's the deal. The only things I can see possibly wrong are a very small paint blemish or two but not big enough to warrant not selling them for new. Someone enlighten me please.
