Yeah they are taking the absolute piss at $400 a throw and they have your money for close to 5 months. Very greedy move. I just pre-ordered S1 ar $200 which is about USD prices but I'm expecting that to drop as more and more of it becomes available. Every UD Hockey products since 2020-21 S2 has dropped after release. That's 2020-21 Extended( complete trash which has lost 70% of its value. And then the next 6 releases after that 2021-22 S1,S2( my case, lol) Extended and 2022-23 S1, S2 and Extended.
Good luck with the SP Game Used. I loathe that product only because it's a really tough rip. Also has mostly stickers autos blah blah. That's just my opinion. The productd does have a solid fan base though and it's popular. I'm no expert but if you are buying hockey wax for investment purposes I would buy SPA and The Cup. The latter is expensive but it's the undisputed no.1 brand and. The real risk at the moment with sealed high end wax is if UD make Bedard a redemption. Pre-sell is available way before a checklist comes out and that's a massive problem.
2021-22 SPA is almost guaranteed to bust even if the crop excels because most of the best names are redemptions.
I doubt they would do it with Bedard but always keep in mind that the manufacturers don't give 2 cents for collectors. They are trying to extraxt max value in the shortest period possible - knowing that their exclusive licence may not get renewed.
Big rant. I just saw the Cherry price and had to come on here but you well and truly beat me to it. I might even wait for S2 to hit epack. It will be cheaper than $400AUD.
Oh, and after I bought those 3 boxes...
Out of stock! I have not seen a preorder in the US for SP Game Used, but expect it will be around 350US.
SPA and The Cup will definitely be on my list. If prices are not ridiculous, I will try buying one of each 23/24 product he is in and just sit on it
In terms of other years, everything seems so cheap! I am going to save up and buy a bunch to rip for fun! Blasters, Hobby you name it. Not really looking for anything good
