I just got done speaking with the seller, CLCEN1. I asked if they were going to have any more available in the future, he first replied that the manufacturer didn't like them selling the ophir's at such a low price. He then asked me how much I was willing to pay for one. I replied that I was hoping to get one at the original sale price.
He responded that somebody would call me back on thursday.
if he comes back and says he'd sell you one, id grab it, even if it was $250 because you dont know when these will come back for sale. even when people sell their ophir LPMs, they normally sell the LPM unit w/o the ophir sensor. my ophir will never hit the market
like both the seller you contacted and jerry said, ALOT more. iirc these heads used to sell for cheap ($50-100) in bulk, then the prices sky rocketed!!! i think the cheapest people can buy them for now is $325 for 10+ units but dont quote me on that. jerry would be the best to chime in on bulk prices of the ophirs
Well I am sorry I put up this thread with such a bad news. If it's true that ophir didn't want for the seller to have such low prices it is most likely that they won't be back on the market at $200.
Well let's not panic there are very good options out there that don't need to be an ophir.
We shall see what the LaserbeeIII is all about... in jerrys sales page it states that it's comming soon... might be a better and faster and higher power laserbee???
I got to be honest, I still have to try the ophir since it's going to be delivered to my miami address tomorrow, and it will probably be here by the end of the week, but I LOVE the laserbee...it is just a simple little meter that does the job.
