I couldn't justify paying a ton. These are awesome..mounts are kinda flimsy it seems
That's cool. How long did shipping take? You can probably tig on some nice overlay plates or make new mounts

Maybe if the USA made shit quit price gouging, the Chinese wouldn’t have a market
Price gouging?

It's easy to make a product for less when your workforce makes 1 tenth of the competition. Also when you don't have to spend large amounts of money up front on R&D you can make stuff cheaper. Then you cheap out on a few components because you don't have a lifetime warranty and don't care if it dies in 6 months, yeah you can make shit cheaper.

If everyone started buying domestic made products the prices would come down. Economy's of scale and all that. Right now the object is to make your money on R&D back quickly before the Chinese copy your shit and your sales go way down cause everybody wants cheap shit.

Na bull shit reasoning for a 1200 dollar light. The reason they cost that much is obviously the market is supporting it so clearly “more people are buying it” but why the hell should they drop pricing if people are buying it? Supply and demand. Demand goes up, price goes up till you have a surplus and that surplus comes from competitors entering the market or lack of buyers all together.

They created the market for a cheap light that looks and/or damn near does the same due to their high prices. I don’t blame the Chinese for jumping in one bit. Just more options for us as a consumer
