    Boamaster Prices Jump $200+ Right Before I Order

    Let me preface by saying I don't think they necessarily did anything wrong because they of course reserve the right to change their prices as they see fit, but the timing is just incredible.

    I was pricing out enclosures yesterday, after making the other thread about utilizing space for a reptile room, so I decided to go ahead and order a 6+ ft enclosure for my retic, as she will soon outgrow what she's in. Anyway, I really like the look of the boamasters and the price was comparable to AP, so I decided I was going to get their 6x2x2.

    I pull up their site to place an order today, and the price for the enclosure jumped $210 overnight!

    Very unfortunate timing.




    For some reason, the 8ft ($700) is now cheaper than the 6ft ($775)

    I asked him about a custom cage last summer. Price went up every time I talked to him...

    Interesting. I did email him on Dec 24th asking how much a custom 60x24x18 would cost. He hasn't responded though. i wonder if that's just a coincidence.

    Take it as a blessing in disguise and do some more research on Boamaster in the meantime.

    I've seen positive reviews and negative reviews, mostly about his customer service, not the quality, but this experience certainly points to going with someone else (and by that I mean AP, as it's looking more and more like they're the only option unfortunately)

    Seemed like youre fairly handy when building your scrub enclosure. Could order two 4x2x15 RBI enclosures, cut a pass through between the two, attach with machine screws and T-nuts, then have an 8x2x15 for about $500 shipped

    Thanks for the links! I have not heard of serpentineobsessions.com or jonsccar. I have always considered getting a pvccages for my ETB, but they arent long enough for anything else I have.

    Jons Custom Creations and Reptiles (jonsccar) made this cage for me a little over a year ago. Have to message him on FB or text him.

    That thing is massive! I emailed serpentine obsessions. I'll send a message to him too. Compare the options.
