Honestly, when it comes right down to it the price doesn't matter what anyone thinks. The marker is worth what the buyer and seller agree upon. So if the buyer and seller agree that an Ego 6, for example, is worth 250$ then guess what, that particular Ego 6 is worth 250$.
now just because that particular ego 6 sold for $250 doesn't make all the other ego 6s worth $250. There might be a buyer and seller out there where the buyer and seller agree upon $350 then that ego was worth $350.
I've done retail for over 10 years and most of it has been in the "real steel" industry. Prices vary from store to store and if you don't like one store's price then you go to the next. It's the exact same for buying on here.
