I don't necessarily hold it against BPS but every year I watch the same products get incrementally more and more expensive.


I absolutely cannot believe the price of inline MZs. Just a few years ago a decent inline, like a T/C Omega, could be bought brand new for $200-250. A top of the line MZ like a T/C Triumph or Knight MZ cost around $400. Now look at the prices. Good grief...


Not sure on that Omega, the Z5 could be had at walmart for $250 or so, but the Omega camo and stainless has always been up around $450. My black and stainless was $329 but that was because it had a CVA Kodiak sticker on it, regular price was $399 at the time. Prices have gone up quite a bit though on everything.

When I bought my T/C Omega (blued/synthetic), the standard Bass Pro price was $250. I got it at the "Hunting Classic" sale for $200. My brother paid $400 for his stainless/synthetic T/C Triumph, not on sale.

What I've never liked about the Bass Pro Classic is inventory. I swear it's more a "bait-and-switch" scheme than a sale. Sure, the items advertised are available. One or two of them. Then, once those are sold out in the first few seconds of the sale, everybody who has driven an hour or two to get there and doesn't want to go home empty-handed is offered something of lesser quality for only $20 or $30 more. And of course, that's the normal price for that lesser quality item...

I've also seen Bass Pro start the sale the night before it's officially supposed to begin. When the doors open the next morning, the sale items are sold out. They were all sold the night before.
