Quoted from mcluvin:
Not sure how rare, but it appears the mob is controlling coil stop prices. Wow!!
Off topic, but worth mentioning since it's been brought up....
It's easy to get complacent when ordering. It starts with that one product you need, then you just keep adding to your cart. Because I had nothing better to do last month, I took a couple of the items I purchase regularly and did a quick price comparison:
To hell with coil stops -- look at those slingshot switch prices - Marco is 67% more expensive than PBL.
Flipper rebuild kits, about 30% more!
Last email I sent to Nancy @ Marco on this topic went unanswered. Figured she might want to know why my annual parts orders are going to drop by couple thousand dollars. Nope, my email was completely ignored.
What would be nice is to have a talented web developer (perhaps pinside.com or pinpedia.com) write some code that goes out once a month and scrapes prices off their sites and renders a comparison table like the above.
