I would still argue that is true. If kits truly are cheaper then the companies shouldn't care if you buy the kit of the bulbs individually. Why then would they not list out what you are getting in the kit? What is the big secret? That doesn't make any sense.
Well I don't know why companies do anything. My guess would be the fact that companies want to sell things in bulk. And people are probably more likely to say "just give me all my bulbs now" instead of counting all their own and writing down each kind etc etc. Maybe, maybe not, i don't work for them so I don't know.
Again, fair enough on your using minis or 1s, on RBION. You have the game and I do not, so that will probably help Jay out a lot.
But back to the kit issue...I mean you said it has 60 inserts.
The insert kit uses super brights
The kit includes 60 or so lights
Super Brights cost 1.19
60*1.19> $65 kit price
That's the problem I'm having. Or are you saying the kit includes cheaper bulbs maybe? For the smaller inserts?
That works out to $71
