thats what i mean about hard to buy,  two of the four items for sale ( second hand ) in more that two weeks......
do the people who manufacture or import such items not realize the loss in sales....
surly im not alone in thinking in this way..!

The people who make them dont do it as a full time job iirc. Hence the supply issues because they are not mass produced crap. The best stuff is always via a list so it seems or at the very least involves a wait of some kind.

I understand your frustration, I would love another Penelope and find myself check the GG site most days  :P

You have to remember vaping is still quite a new industry, a lot of the high end items are produced by enthusiasts not people setting out to set up a fulltime business.

Seeing you have been looking at Genesis types have a look at the DiD  http://e-vape.gr/index.php?route=common/home (http://e-vape.gr/index.php?route=common/home)  :)

Edit: just noticed your posts in the DiD thread :P

Its a real shame but soon all these innovative guys (and gals maybe) will lose all thier hard work to some Chinese factory owner who will swoop in and mass produce rip-offs.
I'd shed a genuine tear if I wasnt so annoyed at the poor buisness sense of the respective guys (and gals).

IMEO i mean you! stop innovating and make MORE of the bloody things peeps already want to buy ... you could even charge more! i see a certain Australian selling GG goods here all the time days after they have been released for more than they originally cost.

JMHO of-course.

Its artificial shortage. They keep the output low to keep the prices high. That works till someone else notices the gap in the market and will be able to produce more and cheaper. Best example Cetin with his Bulli.

no i dont think thats right at all..  as someone pointed out they could charge more for these items and still sell them,   second user ( secondhand ) items selling for more than they were when new shows this...............
it is a bit mad,   the people with the skills and equipment to make such devices should have more faith in what there doing and go with full time production.....     im new to all this so you lot must feel the same after not being able to purchase the items you want......

Maybe they have brilliant full time jobs and don't have the spare time.
