    In the past, Patricks Fly shop in Seattle has had Sage factory seconds. Not sure if that does either of you any good given your location.

    Online, mudhole.com usually has some interesting factory seconds.

    I go to utmost in carlsberg and they have tons of blanks at good prices. They have any pac bay and forecast components, too. They also do 25% off regular rain shadow blanks if you buy them in the store
