the best single piece of gear in the game
I beg to differ:
Apparently, it's not the best - fmagnets commented "so and so" to it, and one player who actually bought it took it out of his bag shortly after.
(a reminder: You cannot sell it back at 25% = 100,000 cr because it's not a "club" but a "CC reward". That's why I don't believe the number on the price tag - I put it's actual worth to Zero.)
