      What would you pay for a NON gosanke in a growout this year?

      I am trying to get an idea of people's spending plans for this year. If we were to have a growout featuring NON gosanke what is the range you would be willing to spend presuming that the koi were of a quality that you would purchase.

      Please pick the highest range you would pay.

      That's strange, I always thought that the Valkyrie shipping rates were very reasonable.

      Since people are taking the poll without posting, I may keep bumping these threads to keep them visible.

      I'd probably pay more for a gosanke than non gosanke. Depends on what variety the nongosanke will be.

      Been there, done that! Not really happy with the results either. So are several others that did that one on Koi Bito!

      Ooh, Goshiki would be fun. Not big on the solids though.

      A bekko growout might be fun. I don't know many people with good Bekko's.

      Goshiki sounds very good. The dealer that is chosen and shipping cost will also play a big part of the decision.

      It would be fun to have a really dark goshiki.

      Bekko would be cool, as long as good quality ones could be found in significant numbers. As for solid koi I'd like platinum ogons

      Well...I would be very interested in certain non-gosanke!!!

      I just think it's pretty good that someone (Carl) is actually going to the effort to talk with different breeders and give us an option to voice our opinions on what we would want.
