$400 is a fairly reasonable price to pay for a manifold, certainly in line with what I would expect to pay for Dive Rite etc. Halcyon did get a bad rep with the previous dealer in NZ, but the current importer has a much different pricing policy - I would expect a Halcyon manifold to be around that price point as well.
Did you really manage to land a manifold and a set of bands for NZ$250, 'bonk? It seems ludicrously cheap, maybe my perception is coloured by the exchange rate - but I hope that Rob buys you a couple of beers as well.
Maybe it had something to do with the last importer of halcyon only opening the shop by appointment only and signing a contract to only dive with the realm crew ahhhh the good old dir nz days.
