I got a good deal on my pocket rockets by asking my local shop if he could call his rep for me to see if he had any demo's to sell. I got hooked up with a pair of rockets for 600 bucks. All they were, were the ski he brought around to all the shops to show people what they look like. Nothing but fingerprints on em.
So if you don't find a rep that you can buy directly from, this works too.
Don't think just jump.
