Every now and then while surfing the web for scuba gear you come across a deal that seems almost too good to be true. Often these deals are on Scubatoys, but not always. Sometimes it might be a website clearing out old stock, or just trying to lure you in. Anyways, I'm always a bargain shopper and I thought that I would create a place to share those deals with others and maybe find some from you. So if you find anything exceptionally cheap, post a link to it here.

Here is a few to get it started.

I don't know about the other gear listed, but I bought my Zeagel Scout BCD from ST in late 2007 for about what this "amazing price" of $199(above). The difference was:
-I got it from a tried and true source, and
-ST didn't try to hype the sale by creating an obvous outragous markdown ("marked down from $949.50")
Any deal can be made to look incredable if you creat a false, very high original price

BTW, thanks to ST-great recommendation for my BCD and octo based on a recommendation from a knowledable ST sales rep. Dove it all very comfortably in Bonaire in Ec.

to be fair, it shows marked down from 349.50, not 949.50...

Because scubatoys will "match any price" it is nice to know where to find things cheap on the internet. You can still purchase from scubatoys, just at a better price.

They will match most, but can't match "all" prices you find. To be fair, it's rare they won't beat a price but there are times...

Even if they were scubapro dealer, they can't ship scubapro stuff since it will void the warranty.

I found this light / strobe at Bass Pro Shops, almost 1/2 the price of similar products elsewhere: ACR Firefly Plus - Strobe/Flashlight Combo (http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10151&catalogId=10001&langId=-1&partNumber=44902&hvarTarget=search&cmCat=SearchResults)

Looks like leisurepro also has the Scout BC for $199.00

Did Zeagle discontinue the Scout and these places are selling old stock? Except for the possible weight issues if you overload the rear weight pockets it seems like a nice starter BCD

Scuba Toys probably can't match LP's sale price though, right?

I thought Scubatoys doesn't carry the Zeagle Scout. (At least it isn't listed on the website anywhere.)

a free 800 number phone call will get you the answer to your question - I am sure that they do not have all of their items that are available on the website.

see the post above by reactive for the numbers :)

Oddly enough I googled Zeagle Scout and found this link, but it doesn't show up in the scubatoy's search tool if you enter scout into the search...

The Diveus Gemini Octo Regulator (http://www.diveusa.com/Shop/Control/Product/fp/vpid/2713119/vpcsid/0/SFV/30713) was the highest rated octo in this scuba magazine test. Better Alternatives - Scuba Diving Magazine (http://www.scubadiving.com/gear/regulators/better_alternatives) It even beat out the Atomic Aquatics. For $70 it is a steal. I've got two of them and am very happy.

They can match LP, I just bought the Zeagle Scout BCD w/ Octo Z at LP's sale price. If you email them with the info they get back to you right away. I ordered 2 and had them at my house in 3 days.

They carry alot of items not listed on the website, if you are looking for someting specific, just shoot them an email or give them a call.
