I would try almost any trumpet, provided someone with some credibility had suggested it, or I had heard something good about it (or even if I've only heard all bad!!). However.....almost any kind of restocking fee would make me think twice. For one thing, I can get almost any kind of horn from my teacher to try, for nothing, and the other thing is that I think that it could hardly cost $200 to restock it. I know there's no real way of determinating how serious a possibly buyer is, but I still can't imagine that it'd actually cost the company $200. Besides...if the horn's that great (any horn, that is), then what are the chances that someone trying out the horn would just walk away from it? If I found a horn that greatly enhanced my ability to play, I'd hurry up and start saving, and having a nice experience with the horn/horn owners before my purchase would help greatly :)

Just my 2 cents.
