I didn't think it was that bad at the boat show last year. You just need to know and understand what you are buying. Don't expect Stella's on sale for $20 bucks but there are some good bargains on odd bits and pieces.

For instance I got a no brand Egi cases for $5.00 each that retail at $25-30 badged under other brand names.

Sounds like the early bird gets the good worms at these things...didn't realise how much bigger the 4x4 expo was until I looked at the links (thanks Skouta)
P.S. Southern Sportsfishing had a few Stella's going for cost last week (dare say they are still there)...was tempted, but it's not worth a divorce

Lol true about the divorce.

Think there were a few sizes (must be a new model out?)...the 10000 caught my eye, I think it was between $700-$800
