I'd think twice about it as well. If it was a really screaming deal, it was a newer model and it was like new then I might go for it. It's pretty obvious when they've been dropped. It's easy to...

/agree I don't think it's the impact so much as the twisting that often causes the damage, though. Good ankle support can help a lot but in a serious accident I don't think that a piece of plastic...
