Maybe but lower down the chain should probably buy now as so far it doesn't seem to me to have been about new equipment, just hiking prices. Appolgies if I've got this wrong.
Yes, unfortunately I think you've taken into account the flash sale 25% discount.
From memory the replacements are pretty similar prices to what they are replacing.
I'm personally well pleased because I scrimped and saved to get the L85 Cally's in the sale, which means I've saved nearly 900 credits - the replacement Apex 19s are exactly the same spec. So, I would only be disappointed if I wanted a virtual club that was in the current IRL range and was the 'latest thing'.
