If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use duct tape.

Most snipers use esnipe.com for their sniping. I personally think a sniper service takes all the fun out of sniping. I use an atomic clock and bid with 12 seconds left on the auction and 9 out of 10 times I win if my amount is high enough. :P

I don't snipe, I enter my max bid, and I either win or don't. If a sniper bids higher than I am willing to pay he wins, if not I win.

I have had problems with shilling when I max bid. Sniping solves that problem and saves money in the long run.

There is a way to snipe without a program. I outlined this some time ago.

Since the Tug went I was reading you guys comments about sniping on Ebay. There is a very easy way to snipe down to the last second even on a modem line. I usually have a bid in the last 1-5 sec. Here's how you do it. Set up 2 or more windows on your desktop( I've had up to 4 at one time which is about the max) on the same pg. Then go ahead and put in your bid or bid increments on the other pages at the confirm point. The first pg is just for refresh to see where its at. Now with practice you can time your connection so that literally your ready to click your bid at the last second. I've been in on this where the winning bid will come in less than a second to go. With multiple pages up you can start the process say 15sec before and tweak up till the end without over bidding.

I have been watching John^&%('s Cub sell on e-bay. In the last 8 seconds the price went from $1028.36 to $1226.55 or $198.??.

$198.00 in 8 seconds. Great for John.

I have 2 computers side by side. I enter my bid amount on one computer, the other computer has the item i'm bidding on . Near the end I keep refresing the one with the item on. within the last 2 to 3 seconds I hit bid now on the other computer. works almost every time. Just got done winning a bid on a plow, drawbar & depth lever for my Cub

As ya all know, I have more than one puter at my desk. I also use toys1's tactic and have used many many times Bill Poor's tactic. They both work and work well.

So far I have only really been beaten on 1 item I wanted, and it really wasn't to a sniper. It was to a guy who was willing to pay my mortgage almost to get a brochure.. Yeah, I wanted it, but not that badly :roll: :wink: :lol: :lol:
