I have a 2007 Softie Wedge emergency parachute for sale for $1400. It was last repacked in March 2013. It's in like new condition with the aerobatic harness and the zip-on G pad that you sit on that keeps the chute from shifting. It is the wedge container but is currently packed so the chute is evenly distributed across the back - great for Extra type planes - but can be repacked into the Wedge for Pitts type seating. It has the bigger canopy for guys up to 240lbs.

That sounds like a good/reasonable deal. If you take the _industry standard_ of a 20 year service life, and use $2300 as the purchase price of a new Softie....

During the pre-buy inspection I would simply have the Rigger verify the DOM of the _canopy_ - since it has been crossed out and re-written.
