Colored Stock Class tubes (Would you buy it?)

Hi everyone, I just registered today, though I've been browsing the boards as a guest for a few months now.

Well, this is just a quick thread to see if any stock class players out there would want custom colored stock class 10 round tubes.

Questions:
Would you buy it?
How much would you pay? (I know this is kind of against the BST rules, but I don't want to over charge if people actually want to buy it.)

Pictures of BLACK tubes, more of a smoke color, but you get the idea.






Note: Yes I dyed these using the methods described on the SCP articles section.

Thats actually a lot for each tube

I was thinking no more than $1.15 each maybe with bulk buy discounts?

I'd be interested. As far as cost goes, I probably wouldn't pay more than $0.75 per tube, assuming they come with caps (wevo sells tubes for $0.15 and speed caps for $0.10 each).

If this flies, I'd probably add a speed cap option, and that is a more realistic price than the ones previously mentioned. But they do take a few hours for a batch of maybe 20-30 tubes.

its all good, had my hopes up, but reality is its not worth that much

Hmm, maybe $0.60 with tube with regular green caps
and $0.75 with speed caps (I know you can get them for $0.10 from wevo, but you save shipping this way if you buy it from one source)

Does that sound fair to everyone?

You could always charge the above for small bunches (make a minimum order of 5 or 10) and then if people buy past a certain amount, you could give a volume discount

OR

You could just sell them in lots of 10 for X amount of money and just combine shipping. I think you should just do the speedcaps as a standard option unless people don't want them (like if they're running a capless rig). That way, you're not stuck with a buncha green caps that people don't want.

That's a very good idea I used to think the green caps would be handy if I lost the speed caps, but I just got more speed caps in case I lost any. And yeah, I was thinking the more you buy, the less you pay per tube.
