Thanks, Tplavas, I'll add the name to my business card.
The few (3 models) power cord price increases occurred last September, when the new Helix Series of power cords were introduced (they are more expensive to hand braid than older models and use more conductors). Nothing has changed since then-- except, that we have reduced all the prices for 1m Helix power cords as well as the per-foot cost of longer length Helix cords. Hopefully no one will have a problem with that.
That said, the Taipans remain the same price as before and the Anaconda Helix Alpha remains the same price as its predecessor. The Python Helix Alpha, Python Helix vX and Anaconda Helix vX were the only cords to have gone up in price. All of our shielded cables are the same price as ever.
The Hydras are going up in price September 1st.
Hope that clears things up. It would be better to contact us for such information directly rather than polling on the net, as that often serves to generate acerbic responses and less accurate information.
