The $4.50 is tempting, although I will not say what it is tempting me to say. That said, I was thinking about the $90.00 mark, myself. Anything less and I would most likely choose to keep it for an unknown future build. Were it a black one and new, it would be a keeper, for sure.

i'd have to agree with oddjob2. Even if you don't have an immediate need for it I would be stashing it away in a safe place. I know that sooner or later I'd be thanking myself I never got rid of it.

These go on sale for 82-85$ every couple of weeks at BTD with free ship. I mostly only buy honey or brown as they add some class to many C+V. I would try it on something to get a feel for how it looks.

If you have not yet tried one of these, you really should. I love the proportions, super comfortable.
