Yeah, but it could be selling a LOT MORE with the original Cellguy/Vinh combination than with the current Niwalker-intervened price.

Both of Vinh’s first and second batches, at the current price, sold out in a matter of hours.

A lower price wouldn’t have changed that.

He could have charged more if he had wanted and still sold them all.

Probably. But thats because of Vinh’s mod, not Niwalker. What are you trying to prove anyways? Selling 20 is nice, or 50, but 20(50)+ 10(or more)more is still more. Vinh does good work, any light he touches seems to sell well, I’m sure if he modded an Uranusfire people would buy many! Wink

Well Vinh and Cellguy(who was the OP) of this thread are all good. So why can’t the rest of you get over it and be as well. After all, it was Cellguy’s thread.

What am I trying to prove?

tatasal said that they could be selling more of the Vinh modded Vostros if the price was lower.

I was just pointing out that Vinh is selling these faster than he can make them anyway, which means that a lower price would not have made a difference.

My comment was in direct response to tatasal’s comment and only referred to the Vinh modded Vostros.

Anything that Vinh mods is selling very well, regardless of the brand of light. I myself was minutes away from ordering from Cellguy and have it addressed to Vinh, but was not able to push through when the GB was cancelled..

The point and issue here in not Vinh.

Had Cellguy’s groupbuy materialized with the option to have it modded by Vinh at a LOWER total cost would have potentially made it a bigger blockbuster, and in my mind there’s no doubt about it.

Vinh’s usual $65 labor price as add-on for lights with this kind of mod is common knowledge, so it won’t matter to him as to what brand (Thrunite TN31, Supbeam K40/X40, etc.) he mods.

What is affected is the cost of the base price of the light in the guise of MAP, specifically in this Niwalker debacle.

It could have been more affordable and of course, (and a real possibility of more sales), whether modded or not, to all of us flashlight lovers, if the BASE price of the light were available at $125.
