possibly, but if it's not noticeable they could just sell it at the regular price. RPI is coming out with an updated/improved model as well too. so it could just be their "clearance" price.

The scoops pictured are RPI's v2. Maybe they'll be a v3, but honestly, short of not requiring the use of self tapping screws, I can't imagine there is much they can change. The v1s were boxier, like the swoop scoops sold through a vendor here.

from their site, the ones for $75 have cosmetic imperfections. regular ones are still $200. http://shoprpi.com/index.php?cPath=21_22_30_41

Probably a ploy to free up some money and move inventory at a lower price without making existing customers angry.

markup on these must be over 1000%. i know materials are less than $1 per unit... considering all other related cost, still it's way over priced... well, someone's making money off this thing...
