    Default dumb question about illinois supers

    Was on mannlake looking at hive bodies and saw that both what they list as med hive bodies and Illinois supers are both 6 5/8 tall but the Illinois supers were a considerable ammont less on price, so what gives, what is the difference?

    I always thought they were the same thing. Maybe one is budget grade and the other commercial? Maybe one is built and the other not?

    Checking the online catalog, pgs 15 and 16, I don't see any Illinios Deep noted.

    This link shows various 6 5/8" boxes, including those described as "Illinois", and those that do not have that word.

    However, from what I see, the price differences are due to differences in the grade (i.e., Select vs Commercial).

    They are all the same. The difference is all within grade and quantity the ones that are more $ are either select grade. or sold singularly. The price each is reduced when you buy a quantity of 5. Other than that Illinois supers and 6 5/8 medium supers are the same.
