When they go up in price to normal I would imagine that he is going to be making an average profit or else he wouldn't be in business.In the end we are talking about a niche, high end product much like an F40 or Zo6. In those situations you are paying extra cause you want style, speed and handeling. For the Alien you are paying for a phunnel with the ability to save shisha and do small sessions easier.
