Pass this once around a distributor and then a retailer, and you're looking at over $200 to people like us. If there was a top quality North American manufactured pipe (solid brass), would you pay around $250+ with hose and jar? People here talk big, but when its time to throw the money down.....*crickets*
i honestly think that when people compared the rigs side to side that a lot of people here would pay the extra for it, i know many wouldnt but i think there would be a market for it if the price could be kept down (i.e. not 500 bucks)
