The cable is sold out!
We're so sorry! We are definitely rushing to get it restocked, even resorting to air freight for fulfillment to try to make up as much time as we can. We know people are selling our cables with inflated prices. While we understand the concept of supply and demand we'd like to discourage our customers from purchasing a $30 product for, often, double or triple the price. The best way to find out when we restock is by follow us on Facebook, we make all our announcements there.
