    What's the best bid sniper you've used?

    What's the best bid sniper you've used?

    I'm tired of waiting for the end of an auction.I want one that does it on the last possible millisecond.

    What's the best you've used?

    Me. I've only failed once.

    I think I used an app or a website once several years ago, but I didn't trust it and went back to using me.

    auction sniper is the only one I have used. I think it keeps me from overbidding. I can find something I like, decide what I am willing to pay, set that as my max bid and walk away. No emotion is allowed to enter the equation, and I stay out of bidding wars.

    A very nice command line snipping program. You can either put the arguments from the command line or use a file. I use a file.
    But it is not millisecond capable. I put it in for 5 seconds.
    I like the simplicity of it. I list the auctions, how many I want and the top price I wlll pay for it. When I needed a new rear derailer, I put something like 5 auctions in, told it how much I would pay for each auction and that I only needed 1. I think I won the third auction. Once you win, it stops bidding, unless you tell it you want more than one.
