Unless you're a giant cheap ass and willing to put up with the headaches and problems just buy from Comet and know you're getting a good product for a reasonable price.
Not to mention the work that Art puts in to develop new things for us. I've got one of his ice blue bulbs here to test, I just haven't had a chance to put it in a machine yet to report back. But no one is carrying this color, and he took the risk to bring it to us.
Quoted from Pauz21:
Unfortunately, I live in Canada... where we regularly get screwed on shipping. Once I filled out an order I realized those offers don't apply... never finalized my order as shipping was too much. (And don't tell me the shipping costs to Canada are legit cause they aren't. I've shipped stuff to the states and it isn't $20 for an envelope,sorry... can't imagine it being THAT much different coming the other way especially since our mail system has one foot in the ground here.
You'd be surprised how much international shipping can be. I had to raise my international prices on my translites to cover the shipping, and I still often pay more to ship than the increase I'm charging. I'm talking raw postage costs, not my time, not the price for the box and tape etc. I only ship Priority International though.
