First strikes coming down in price!
so, cruising ebay and I find that they are selling 40ct boxes (5 tubes) for $20 these days (plus shipping of $5, $2.50 additional)
Thats $0.62 per on the first box, and $0.57 per if you buy more.

Further cruising found 100ct boxes for $40 (plus shipping of $5, $2.50 additional)
thats $0.45 per on the first box, $0.43 per in you get multiple.

and they report 10+ boxes in stock. it's a pb store, so i'm guessing this price is here to stay.

They either buy in bulk at tiberius or they would not make a margin on them.

For now my price havent went down. I am selling case of 24tube for 140$ Shipped.

it's NEW bulk pricing boxes. Just hit the market. I'm guessing in 10rd tubes, or how do they get a 100 ct box?

These are for retail sale, just brand spanking new.

Or people woke up, and relized that while they are cool, they don't do much and are impractical for the sport, and wayy to expensive.

My bet is they stop making them, and they just want to sell all they got and move on - so they lowered prices.

ever taken a FS marker to a big game? Not impractical, just remember that you will use them for 'special' shots.

After you nail somebody at 200+ ft, you'll understand.

People who I play against have learned to keep to cover, and not to just stand there. IMHO, they added a needed niche to the game. It also made me a new target. They see my T9, they gun for me. :(

New for sure as that 142.95$ box is what I would sell and the only option I have currently.

yeah, stores who bought boxes at old pricing are either have to eat a loss, or sell them by the tube.

I'm sure dealers are going to see the new prices really soon, and this is most likely because of the 9.1 launch. Biggest gripe i've heard about FS is the price. This price I could live with. Heck, I was happy when I scored my case of FS rounds for $.50 each!

I also understand t9 FS upgrade kits are coming down to $90! First strike for everyone!

IDK when they say "bulk" cases or pricing, i'm thinking the rounds may just be loose in a bag instead of in tubes like they have been. Would definitely be a way to bring the costs down.

I have to wonder if that would cause dimpling like paintballs. I know the shell is more rigid but its still plastic and plastic can warp.

I remember seeing 2010 MAP prices posted by Eric somewhere it had $80 for the T8 upgrade. I'll have to look around and see if I can find that.
