I was getting ready to buy one of these and noticed on the Nokta web site the Legend went up in price (for the pro pack) from $750 to $900.. It's been available about a week and jumped $150. I've been looking forward to getting one of these, but to be honest, If I'm going to pay Equinox prices, I'll just get an Equinox. Bad form, Nokta.

From who?
Did they built a package deal with digger, pinpointer, hat, etc... included?

The price on the actual Nokta Website. I don't think it had anything additional to the origional pro pack. The regular WHP is now 749 and the pro pack 899. I'm going to call my local dealer and see if his prices went up also. I don't even think he has the pro packs in stock yet.

Are you sure you were not looking at the suggested retail price just checked all the dealers I deal with and their price has not changed, dealer I check $765 for pro pack still the same price I think you may be looking at the MSRP not what the actual price is

I could not imagine Nokta/Macro increasing the price with out letting everyone know it was coming

Just to tidy this thread up, The local brick and motor store I wanted to buy from went out of business (Covid), but I was able to find the pro pack for the regular $765 online with no problems. I'm guessing the price change on their web site is to give people the feeling that their getting a better deal from the dealer.
Should be here in about a week :)

zym all companies has always gave a MSRP (MANUFACTURERS SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE) they also list the price the dealer should sell the product for it is nothing uncommon

Nokta/Macro has had the $899 msrp set that way on the Legend from the start from day one when they released it nothing has changed any where or at any of the dealers the price is still the same everywhere you could have got the Legend for what yo paid from any dealer.

That is absolutely incorrect. I checked it one day on the Nokta site, and it was one price. I checked it two days later and it was a different price. Hence the reason for this post. I fully understand what MSRP is and how that works.

I thought you had to preorder before the Legend was released to get the reduced price and that the normal price would be the higher price that you quoted.
