Default Lamson Konic vs Velocity Hard Alox

I was at a Cabelas today and saw they had a Lamson Velocity Hard Alox on sale (closeout) for $129. I have been looking at getting a Konic 2, but if I can get the Velocity for what amounts to the same price should I go with the Velocity instead? Is the Velocity an upgrade from the Konic?

Matter of fact I wish you would have posted this a week ago if your store had a size 7/8 Velocity for that price. I just paid $200 for one! I would gladly have sent you the funds to get me one. I get a little carried away when it comes to saving a dollar or fifty of em.

Actually I did not check to see what size(s) they had. It was not my "home" store as I am out of town and it was a store I had never been to before. I might get a chance to go back by there tomorrow and I will check.

I bought a Velocity Hard Alox model 1 for $129 at Cabela's and LOVE it! It is a definite improvement over the Konic!
