Have you ever heard R' Twersky's (Pittsburgh) song about the various peculiarities in Chabad (some in contradiction to what the AR paskens in his Shulchan Oruch)?

] true,  but I imagine there would be a bigger choice at decent prices in CH.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Not better selection, but better prices, sure.  (Though if you're looking for very clean ones you'll have an harder time, but if you'll find one you'll definitely pay less for it than elsewhere)

Yes, there are very few clean ones this year for some reason. I found a beautiful one BH last night.

Don't know. I believe in the $200 range. Bought it from a FM who I just pay whatever he asks. He only had 4-5 Yaneve with a pitum. Could be he's still getting more.
