Yeah, I think his new pricing isn't bad at all, sure you can get some from eBay for 10$ for 50$ or something close to that but getting small quantity custom made objects especially when it's not coming from china can be pretty expensive, and for those saying the shipping is expensive then it really does cost that much. Canada Post is way to expensive for shipping these small light objects.
BTW that shipping method is usually pretty fast also it's in my opinion the quickest non tracked method I've had that method get to Europe in 3 business days

Wow 3 days! Holy c**p I wasnt even going to mention shipping, I've had postage costs vary from $3 upto $17 for standard international post and all on small, light comparable items...anyway thats a different story!

The one spring is free shipping. So if you buy two plus four dollars (if in the U.S.) It's going to cost you eight dollars where only one would cost you five total.

grainde - Who on this thread asked Ryan to lower prices for he's
custom springs? Ryan can sell these springs for any arbitrary amount he wishes. He posted a sales thread and he'es entitled to the response it deserves. He's the only one that can control
the kind of feedback he will receive.

If someone asked him to lower he's prices for any reason i think i can speak for most of the forum in saying it wouldn't be tolerated.

Yeah.. Canada Post shipping on very light, small items is very expensive. We need better price scaling on weight/size.

Alright, well only 1 spring has been sold so far, pretty sad. Seems like external springs are a waste of time. I was expecting a much better response from the community, but it is how it is.

On a side note, I've been seeing some of you say, this is "only a spring". But it's not so simple, when I spoke to the manufacturer about my specifications, he told me these springs are "not easy to make", because of how small the wire is, it requires high precision tooling and that adds to the cost.

At this point, I'm really doing this for you guys, I barely make anything on top of the sample spring costs and by the time I post this to the post office, the fuel, time and packaging costs will have already drove that into a loss.

First, the "comments" are NOT from the admin of the forum.
The members themselves decide what to comment on

Second, you will notice that your link takes you to an "outside" website.
I already commented about outside websites
There are many members here that have outside websites.
Being a member here does NOT require someone to have the same pricing here and at their websites.

If SL made a thread about his springs here, members would be free to comment about his pricing of them

Peace,
dave

Wow... I just did some actual calculations, forgot about paypal's cut, I'm actually losing money at all quantities, not just with the sample.

I'll have to adjust it sorry people... It's just a little more and it won't be a nice number but don't freak out lol.

& dpup, the springs you just ordered will still be what you ordered

Have a good one people,
Ryan

I got the springs today and they work great

I'm using a glass lens for 445 & it really is smoother then others I'm Not joking, they don't resist much & work great.

Thanks Ryan

Sorry about your bland sales Ryan, but perhaps you should have done a feeler or a preview of the springs and then have decided whether to order them or not. : )

Good luck!
