    Why did soft Touch Turbo polyester jump from $8 to $13??
    Thought mono poly was cheaper to make!! Now they are more expensive than synths or even some multis? Why is this? Even $8 is no big poly bargain. The package was even cheap.

    Yes...Gotta love "manufactures advertised pricing." I've been moving a lot of customers off this string due to pricing. Kirschbaum USA has had specials where I could load up at the old pricing, but it was a pain. I've been moving people to different polys.

    Frankly the markup on all these polys is insane. Know this...they were making a pile charging the $8....

    I assumed the current pricing on all strings was ludicrous. $3-4 for a set of PSG? Yipes. It's NYLON, and they hardly advertise it(or need to, really)..
