I am however capable of admitting when I am wrong though although that is not very often. A true tanning professional he must be -Yes I am. I have an impeccable reputation in this industry. probably never taken a bed or a mystic apart in his life You're kidding, right? - but yet feels that he must respond to the feed! Doesn't it remind you of going to an event, only to be sat down next to that guy that LOVES to hear himself talk!?!?!?I have no need to sit around and brag. I know my $h!t and everyone knows it. I just sit back and let everyone else carry on like pompous a$$es. I have nothing to prove to anyone. Already put my time in.
Now back to that tool. I am now motivated to build some and sell them for a fraction of the price.

Re: Mystic Tan Tool - Only $495

I just find it odd that the criticism of a tool that Mystic suggests that all of their installers have based on cost alone was ridiculous. If you have never used the tool, how can you judge the value of it? Based on price alone? Trust me, I have done it both ways, and the tool is worth every bit of its price - by eliminating broken parts (from the hammer) and speeding up the process.
I guess perhaps that it was directed at my product is what bothered me the most - call me thin skinned I guess. I mean, I don't go all over the boards and bash Supra lamps vs. heraeus lamps or anything. Perhaps I should toughen up if I am going to be on these boards..... 8-{)

Many of us learned the hard way too. I got my "whippins" on the old Tanformation site back in the day. Now that, was a harsh board!

I am not discounting the effectiveness of the tool. Yes, it does make the job easy but it is not worth $500 bucks and it certainly is not worth $1,000 bucks. It is worth $100 bucks though and that is what the price should be as it is a specialty tool.

I have a whole shop full of tools and plenty that are way more heavy duty than that thing and cost nowhere near the price of that thing. At that price it is a ripoff. Sorry but it is. I will construct one for pennies on the dollar that will work just the same.

Re: Mystic Tan Tool - Only $495

The cost of materials for this tool (or any tool) aren't what determines if it is worth the selling price. If Brian wants to buy some parts and manufacture and sell a similar tool for $100, that's up to him. Until then, this tool is worth whatever people will pay. Criticizm of its price is about as pointless as one can get. Amusing, but pointless.

Re: Mystic Tan Tool - Only $495

It is not pointless. The reality is that the tool is not needed. Sure, it makes the job easier but it is not needed to take the unit apart. That is where the astronomical price is worth discussing, or ridiculing. It would be different if the tool was absolutely required to perform its intended function.

Re: Mystic Tan Tool - Only $495

Aren't these mainly for the old Blue Box Mystics?
The units are usually selling $500 a piece these days.
