Default Best 589 for my money?

Hello everyone, after seeing some beamshots of 589nm, I think I am really going to have to get one....but I don't have fortunes to blow on one, so is there a good place to buy one that won't cost an arm and a leg? I understand the old saying "you get what you pay for" but hopefully someone here knows of a happy medium? Thanks for all replies in advance.

Assuming there's enough people for it to go through, take a look at the current CNI group buy, but you'll probably want to hurry.

NOW 447nm CNI lasers & GB #11

Yellow is currently one of the most expensive visible wavelengths for a pointer.
There is only once source for these (that I know of), which is CNI.

30mW yellow is the bomb. If someone has a high power yellow, post some pics.

It's 594, not 589, but it IS 40 mW. You might like these pics. I returned it to LG because I wanted something with more power, but I fell on financial hardships and well, I can't afford to upgrade after all.
