Massdrop Deal Alert & Discussion Thread

Lately there has been tons of flashlight and knife deals on massdrop, so I thought to be a good idea to gather all the deals so more people could join.

For those who are unfamiliar with massdrop, it is basically a group buy style webstore, a new item appears when 200 people have voted for it and they contact the supplier or manufacturer for the price for certain quantity. Once the item is available to purchase, depending on how many people have committed to buy the item, the price will drop until it reaches a lowest.

Let me state that I’m not related with massdrop in any possible way, I just regulary vote for the stuff I wish to see on sale and have grabbed severals great lights and knives for cheap.

I will try to post interesting flashlight, knife and EDC deals when I can but if anyone sees a good deal please feel free to post here!

Usefull thread I think Smile

As an addition I can say that they (Massdrop) ship the items themselves, and that I received it in a few days (just one experience though). With the Maratac copper that I bought via Massdrop it had the extra advantage that the original seller of the Maratac does not ship outside the US, and Massdrop does that without any issue.

Nitecore EAX Hammer $89.99 lowest

I don’t like AA lights but some will find this a good deal. Smile

——

These are past deals but if it gets voted 200 times it will be brought back again.

Nitecore EC4. $54.99… Andrew&Amanda had this same price for one day I think.

Maratac Copper AAA. It was $32.99 lowest, I missed this one but I’m sure they will bring it back, 250+ votes already. First drop was limited to 200 units.

I picked up the three Nitecore Tubes for 19.99. Not that great of a deal, but better than retail. This will be my third drop with them. The first went flawlessly, the second is taking way longer than expected. Hopefully the tubes get to me in a timely fashion.

^ Welcome to the forum rb765.  I just finally got some tubes a little bit ago.  I see now why people like them so much.

Nice thread idea will34.  I haven't used Massdrop yet, but it sounds interesting.

Massdrop could be good alternative to other vendors.Recently I got the Maratac AAA copper from them – better price than Countycomm.com and able to ship int’l.The first batch of 200 pcs. was gone in a few hours , 2nd batch maybe a day or so.Love the light and ordered a 2nd one in SS – have to go pick it up from the Post Office.Also ordered the Morakniv “Light my fire” – very nice camping knife.Total wait time for all orders incl. sipping to Toronto , Canada was around 3-4 weeks.However , for some items
I saw people waiting 6-8 weeks and longer (not Massdrop fault- they have to wait for manufacturer to ship to their warehouse first,then they ship to their customers).Also Massdrop Customer Service seems to respond promptly to any concerns.Would order again.

I ordered a Kershaw Emerson (see below) with them, went flawlessly. I wanted to jump on the Maratac Copper, but I already have an older one (one of my favorite lights). I am on the fence with that Spydie you posted in the OP (I will prob end up jumping on it) and grabbed a SS Maratac AAA this A.M. . They are so much cheaper through Massdrop than CountyComm, thier stupid shipping rates kill it. So far I am liking Massdrop!

I think those strobes were for marking designated Aircraft Landing Zones. Would probably be great if you are an EMT Or Firefighter working with
helicopters evacs.

Saw a good deal today:

Zebralight SC600w MKII L2 $79.99

Not many budget flashlights lately, I think they are moving to more expensive stuff like premium headphones, speakers and outdoor gear.

Drop’s over but I think it’s good that it has been requested 200+ times already, this is the lowest price I’ve ever seen on a Spyderco Paramilitary 2 $99!!

I hesitated a lot about ordering because I’m waiting for the black blade/camo handle to show up, costs at least $150 elsewhere.

Jetbeam H10A $32.99

Yeah that was a good price, If I didn’t really want the black/camo I would have deffinitely pulled the trigger.
However, I do have a camo/black on preorder from knifeworks. http://www.knifeworks.com/spydercopara-military2camog-10plainedge-1.aspx...
The price has gone up a little, it was $118.99 when I preordered. Still a good option though I think.

Unrelated to flashlights but today I ordered the Kanto YU5 powered speakers . $100 off from amazon price! My other hobby is (was) audio, used to buy lots of headphones, amps and speakers but since I started modding lights I no longer have the time or budget to continue…
