    Like anything you can't just walk into a shop and buy, it costs whatever anyone is willing to pay. I've been surprised that they sell for what they sell for. I can put up with a couple of Inspo bottles g-snapped to the case if it saves a couple of grand.

    I like my spheres but I can't help wondering if it would be cheaper to have a long case made to take small cylinders (a la Boris) rather than pay what spheres go for. Assuming they failed test... which as they never go near a dive shop is unlikely

    I haven't seen one go for that much, used. I bought one last year for the normal going price of $1500. So it is not obscenely overpriced.

    If you have access to the "secret squirrel channels" you might be able to get a new one for not much more than for what this one is going. I guess you are just curious seeing as you have a KISS.

    If you want two spheres, well..... I guess you get the picture......

    Re: Inconel Spheres

    Years ago I used to work for the Inconel factory - who produce the Inco metals under very stringent conditions and testing (one factory in Hereford UK and the US).

    FYI

    Special Metals :: 100 Years of Innovation

    Wouldn't know who machines the spheres.

    Cheers,
