FS - RH Petzl Ascension Ascender

Hi I'm selling a RH Petzl Ascension Ascender for $40. Accidentally bought a second right-hand jumar and am trying to offload it because I prefer the BD NForce jumars anyway. It's in great condition - almost brand new with a few scratches on it from Ozy.
My email is cgaelliott@gmail.com if you're interested

I'm calling BS on the accidentally part of this post.
How the f--- does anyone manage to accidentally buy TWO right hand jumars, on the assumption that you got a matched pair to start with?
And why do you love theBD NForce if you have been using the Petzl Ascensions, given it would take an octopus to use both at the same time to compare?

Wonderful work Duang Daunk Holmes. Your calculating intellect amazes me. I'm sure you will make a great investigatory journalist/self-appointed private investigator one day. I could only hope that one day I can be as cool/sleuth as you, bored enough or perhaps girlfriendless enough to uncover deceit and lies one perp at a time.
If the details so interest you, I don't own an LH jumar at this nascent stage in my embryonic climbing career. I have one RH NForce jumar and one RH Ascension jumar. I was given the NForce first than bought the Ascension later not realising that it was in fact an RH jumar. Yes, I know, how could anyone be so stupid? That kind of stupidity will get you killed one day, one might insist.
Nevertheless, one slushy winter's day, I decided to take them for a spin to see which one I preferred and after using two RH jumars (one Ascension and one NForce) on Ozymandias between Thursday 31 July to Saturday 2 August I decided that I preferred the trigger mech on the NForce so am now endeavouring to sell my Ascension in order to purchase a LH NForce.
Since I spend alot of time trying to find ways to gain your approval I hope that I have absolved myself in your eyes.
And many thanks for your determination in "calling BS" despite your lack of information, context and evidence.

Thank you for your service. You're such a great guy. I'm sure you're like the best ever climber and stuff as well. We all believe in you.

Most peeps don't need a half dozen pitches to work out if one right hand is different to another. Good to see you have your act half together. Keep at it a bit longer and I am sure the girls will be impressed with your left hand as well. If not then your growing imbalance might at least eventually work itself out.
Oh, and good luck getting a LH NForce before then.
