    Why is this particular Mudmaster to expensive?

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...BB656YSQYCY64P

    It is over $2,000, while the one I just ordered, seemingly the same, was under $800 directly from Casio. Why? And I already tried to "just google it" and could not find the answer.

    No good reason other than trolling for a sucker.

    Cuz it's got that sick camo wrap, yo!



    In all seriousness though, I believe it was a limited production model, part of the Master in Desert Camouflage line, and just a very popular colorway. Very high market price though considering it wasn't a collab or anniversary edition.

    My best guesses:

    1.) As was already mentioned, they are just trolling and waiting for a sucker.

    2.) It’s some sort of automatic pricing algorithm based on stock/inventory and/or availability from other sellers. Basically, if you come along and are willing to pay that price, they will go through the trouble of getting you one - you’d essentially be paying them to be a broker.

    It's a long discontinued 2016 variant. If you Google the reference number you'll see that it goes for between $1200 and $1700 on eBay right now. The even more highly inflated price you referenced is just a common trolling practice specialty of certain Amazon Marketplace (or whatever they call the 3rd-party sellers there these days) merchants on items that are close to being sold-out.

    Just waiting for someone daft enough to buy it at that price. You don't have to look very hard to find all manner of goods on sale for silly prices.

    Lol, that price really made me spew my coffee, especially considering I got the non-atomic version for $140.
