They're usually really cheap until they all sell out and people decide to profit from that fact. It's really funny when you see the eBay flippers jack the prices up before they're even out of stock elsewhere. Discontinued models always drop in price until dealer inventories run out. I think a good bit of us here actually make impulse buys when the discontinued list gets posted every year and dealers drop prices on remaining stock. Sometimes though a model stops shipping and dealers sell out before its official.Wartstein wrote: ↑Sun May 26, 2019 4:22 pmI never really understood this: Discontinued models normally should be sought after and RISE in price (and in fact DO often times, believe me I know that from hunting down a Stretch 1... ), but then there are some that get really cheap?!Nate wrote: ↑Sun May 26, 2019 4:18 pmChaparral lw, Urban.
