Yeah I saw that the other day as well. I have a hard time believing that demand for Ion's is so high that they can "jackup" the price up based souly on that. Unless they plan on adding some features to the existing ion or coming out with an `07 Ion model, this makes no sense. The major reason the Ion is so popular is because is a great marker, FOR THE PRICE.

I saw it on another site as well. You know what it might be is that SP doesn't want their markers associated with "Low End". Most folks determin whether or not a marker is considered to be a low end marker by its price not necessarily its performance. Now bringing the price back up after it went down for no particular reason doesn't make a lot of sense. Just a thought.:thinking:

No marketing ploy but the truth. Old news for me. Who knows, if they raise it enough, maybe more people will buy the Epiphany? -

LoL, yeah the epipgany just sort of never took off as fas as I can see. I can't make sense of raising prices on the Ion, unless they want to clear them out and start selling only the epiphany, but they'd have to make the price increase very widely known in order to do that.

Is it just me or are ions far less hyped now than they were half a year ago?
