This ballast and prop group buy will begin IMMEDIATELY and close August 20th to give people time to work through details of their setup with the vendor (who has asked to remain nameless.) All orders can be placed individually and will be processed immediately with a 10% discount. You can include anything and everything in the vendor's store at the discounted rate but all orders must be greater than $150.

As more orders are placed the discount increases according to the tiers listed below! Once the group buy has closed, a credit will be applied to all orders based on the final order count. Please post in this thread once you've placed your order so we can have an accurate count.

6 or more orders: 15% discount (done!)
11 or more orders: 20% discount (done!)
16 or more orders: 25% discount (done!)

Here's your chance to get that Integrated Bow Sac, 750 surf sacs, or the big 1100s, PLUS all the parts and accessories at a steep discount. Or if you need a prop now is the time to get it as this is shaping up to be a HUGE discount!

Coupon code is: moombabuy11 Contact me for the vendor name if you don't know.

Because the vendor would like to remain nameless they've asked me not to share all the specifics in a public forum.

I'm waiting to get the newly created 10% discount code from the vendor, then it's just as simple as placing your order on their website.

They have pretty much all things ballast. Yes any/all fly high bags are available and they even have launch pad too if that's your thing. Plus pumps, hoses, fittings, thru hulls, switches, etc.

I've updated the first post with some additional info. The vendor agreed to take orders NOW so let's get to it! Coupon code is moombabuy11. If you are ready to order but don't know who the vendor is send me a PM.

ok so we put the order through, but nothing is actually processed untill the 20th when a final discount is taken off correct?

My understanding is that orders will process and ship immediately with the 10% discount and it will just be refunds that take place after the 20th. I will confirm that with the vendor though.

why do most group buys happen when im feeling broke :mad:

jester
07-27-2011, 08:52 PM
Because it is one group buy after another. The forms have a habbit of finding new ways to spend your paycheck you did not think about two weeks ago.

brain_rinse
07-28-2011, 03:45 PM
Did you notice the thread title change? Yeah, that's right... props are now part of the deal too! Annnnnnd.... so long as your order is over $150 there is no ballast bag requirement. So if you only want a reversible pump for example, you are eligible for the group buy.

Best of all, the tiers haven't changed! So any purchase over $150 - props, bags, pumps, whatever all count towards our final headcount/discount.

This vendor rocks!

moombadaze
07-28-2011, 05:30 PM
I need a money tree NOW.

I would really like 5 of those reversible pumps, a ibs and would need a better prop for all that ballast.

I just sent Brian a message asking if maybe we can call the company and find out a order count. They have to know how many people have used the code. That way we can know where we stand since the site was down for so long. I'm wanting to order a bag or two and I got a buddy that wants to place a order as well. I just would like to know before pulling the trigger.

Also asked for a count and apprently [a supplier] is on it.

Also want to say fast shipping and great customer service. Ordered on a wednesday and received on friday morning...in Canada.

Installed the 750 in my 2010 LSV and could free ride on my small inland surfer yellow loogy.

Boom! AMCE 1847 and a few check valves on the way. If we're not at the top, we're damn near there, so go for it ya'll. I was actually told we were right there, so I was given the top tier discounts so I wouldn't have to be refunded later. So, we're there, and you all should expect decent refunds!!

Awesome service, awsome deal, awesome that this got set up!!!

If you guys want i can talk with Brian and set something up Say Mid Feb to Early March next year. Its easy for me as im Local to Exile and i see or talk to Brian at least 3xs a week. Let me know and i can roll on this for you all. Might be a tab easier for me to handle this one then Brain as im local. If Brain wants to do it thought i have no issues with that eighter.

I cant even tell you what kind of in i got with the Exile crew lets just say i almost work for them lol. Me and Brain are pretty close friends you might even say like family lol.

I will run this buy him and post something up but plan to do the GB in the winter around tax time so more people can get on board.

jester
08-11-2011, 10:47 PM
Guys why are you all so evil. Exile group buy would be awsome but around tax time sucks since I always have to write a big check to the goverment (by design) to support other people. I also know I should not be part of an Exile group buy if it starts this month. My check book hates you all but my boat loves you.

I'd just give them a call. When I talked to them, they decided to give me the full discount on my order so he didn't have to refund me later. It could be different depending on who you talk to. But, yeh, you'll get the straight 10% on the website, and then will get the additional discount via a refund after the 20th.

I tried this and they said they wouldn't do that. Does anyone know the final count and if we got the 25%. I know it as posted on here we did but when I called in my order on Friday evening they told me they weren't sure the discount because some people had canceled and such. Just thought I'd check.

I ended up ordering two 1100 lbs bags for the rear of my boat should have a good wave for surfing. Now to find a pump to fill the stock 250 lbs bags for moving around in the boat. Eventually maybe my skill level for wake boarding will get were I need ballast. But when that happens I will have plenty in the rear. Just be time for a IBS bag then.

Yeah I was wondering that to... I didn't want to "look a gift horse in the mouth". When I ordered they said that they would have to process the number of orders this week and see where we landed. I am pretty sure they are just working through everything. I may give them a call at the end of next week if I don't see anything by then.

Hey no problem guys. I love helping other people spend their money!

My father is the same way... and that's how I ended up with my first boat back in the 1990's. People say that having kids are expensive, but Dad has cost me at least $100,000 over the years.

Thanks for organising the group buy! I didn't get it in time for the discount, but upgrades will happen very soon thanks to the initiative here.
