Speaking strictly of paso they are made to order in Canada. You pay for their engineering and Asian manufacturing

That justifies it for me

For some things I would definitely agree but when we are talking about a chunk of metal cut to a certain dimensions with no moving parts I can't justify the 4x the cost. I'll be sure to report back if they crumple in my hands or something like that.

We are talking about grade of the alloy and the purity. Anyone can melt some alloy and than CNC them to shape.

Totally got ya. Mine are 7075 aluminum. Perhaps that is the same aluminum I put on a cookie sheet to baking cookies, I've no idea. I do know that it's just a lever not a piston or other critical engine part. They are solid as a rock, and they look as good as they did when I put them on 4700 miles ago. They operate flawlessly and feel great in my hands. Am I missing something here? At the end of the day I'm happy with my purchase and was simply trying to pass on information that might prove useful for some.

I was just answering the question why some cost more than others. As long as you are happy with your lever. I personally have send back 3 levers back to asv for a free swap when I went down at track day. So the f3 or c5 would be worth it for me.
