    Default GROUP BUY POLARION ABYSS DUAL "S" $1,188



    GROUP BUY POLARION ABYSS DUAL "S" $1,188 + SHIPPING
    NOTE: IF MORE THAN 20 UNITS ARE SOLD, THE PRICE DROPS TO $1,097


    THIS IS THE STANDARD KIT
    ABYSS DUAL "S" HID LIGHT
    ONE BATTERY
    AC CHARGER
    SOFT CARRYING CASE


    THE FOLLOWING ACCESSORIES ARE AVAILABLE
    FILTERS (Y,R,G,B, Ti) 50
    DIFUSSION FILTER 60
    BATTERY 145



    THIS GROUP BUY IS "OPEN" TILL THE END OF MARCH
    THE ORDER WILL BE PLACED WITH POLARION KOREA ON APRIL 1ST
    AND THE PRODUCT SHOULD BE IN YOUR HANDS BY APRIL 15TH


    SHIPPING COST ARE DEPENDENT ON THE METHOD OF THE DELIVERY
    YOU SPECIFY. FEDEX IS PREFERRED, BUT UPS OR USPS IS FINE.
    THE LIGHTS WILL BE INSURED AT FULL RETAIL VALUE, AND
    WILL BE SENT "SIGNATURE REQUIRED"


    PAYMENT IN FULL IS REQUIRED WHEN ORDER IS PLACED
    SORRY, NO PAYPAL OR CREDIT CARDS (SEE BELOW)


    FAQS

    HOW CAN YOU SELL THE LIGHTS FOR SO LITTLE, OTHER DEALERS
    ARE ADVERTISING THE LIGHT FOR $1,595 OR MORE

    the price is roughly dealer cost. the folks at polarion
    made the offer to me for the members of cpf


    WHY NO CREDIT CARDS OR PAYPAL ?
    "hi mrtedbear, this xyz from cpf. I have to cancel my order; the
    transmission went out on truck, so I need money...

    the bank statement indicated that I was overdrawn. Not possible as
    I keep a minimum $1,500 in the account for no other reason than to
    avoid the $20 monthly service fee. Well, what if there is a PayPal
    charge back ?

    in both instances I was caught "holding the bag". I ended up reselling
    the light, and eventually got paid (3 momnths later)

    the point is, I am not a dealer making $400-500 profit therefore
    no reason to put myself at risk for a $1,000 light


    For more info, please PM or send email

    Wow! That's a great price for a brand new unit. Kinda surprising they would do this for that many units, etc.


    Are they brand new lights or refurbished units?


    If there is a warranty issue will Polarion USA (Ken Good) or Usa distributors handle the problem or do these units have to be sent to Korea if there is a problem.

    thanks

    New units only. No rebuilds no refurbished

    Warranty is through Polarion Korea though I can/will help facilitate. Battery or charger no biggee, but if the light fails, it would have to go back to the factory. Afaik none of the dealers are able to replace ballasts etc

    I'm in for one. Will PM you for payment method. I need one like I need another hole in my head! I'll use it in my beam comparison shots, that's it! It's a tool, not for fun.

    I'm rather lucky in that I don't have to make up excuses! I enjoy my hobbies and buy hobby things and she enjoys her hobbies and buys her hobby things! But for some reason, I guess I still have to justify it to myself. I think it's left over from being brought up by my parents - dad especially. He was very frugal and imparted that gift to all of us kids. Glad he did! But I still have a tinge of guilt when I buy things! It's all his fault.

    Mr. Ted Bear


    If we don't buy a light can we get in on the accessories?

    What is Ti filter? Is there an infrared option on filter?

    Ti Titanium open wire mesh used to protect the glass lens.

    For this GB, accessories are not available separately.

    Yes Polarion makes an IR filter, but very expensive ($260 ? or something like that). Was told they are hard to come by (2-3 months ??)
