no but apparently some people think they're worth that much second hand. :P

In fact, one could argue that the quality of the FTW is actually worse based on the evidence that's been found.
Generally, in airsoft and dealing with gear, more money means higher quality. But especially with certain brands of gear, sometimes you're paying mostly for the name rather than the quality.
Another example is blackhawk gear. Their PCU's are $460 for a set, but they're a weird cut and are very prone to abrasive wear, they're certainly not $380 superior to the $80 repro set. And to underline the fact I bought my blackhawk set on sale for $150 lol
And propper with their $600 multicam softshell, bought mine on supersale for $150 and they still made money on it. It's literally just one layer of treated nylon, probably doesn't cost them more than $40 to make it.
what this boils down to are the people who overhype this shit and the ones who eat it all up without spending the time to do their own research. Everyone wants it now and from a silver spoon. Take the time to learn about it, make educated decisions and you'll always come out on top. buying the most expensive gear or parts does not equal the best. Especially in airsoft.
I futz with V2s, V3s and V6s. I could be wrong... but probably, most likely not, as far as I know.
