Looking for Smartvent F7 Filter

Anyone know a good place to buy SmartVent F7 filter at a good price.

Most of the places I know are around $85-$100. Last year I bought it from JA Russell for something like ~$70. They don't have online store so can't go in-store.

Seems like the prices have gone up. But just wondering if anyone has found a good price anywhere.
Filter dimensions : 300mm x 300mm

    Can you pricematch @Mitre10 against Bunnings?
    With Bunnings being $96.22, a 15% pricematch would take it to $81.79.
    Obviously can’t do if you’re under Level 4 and would depend on stores being in stock.

      Yup under level 4 can't do it. Also, was looking for something under $80.

      Maybe Auckland goes in level 2 in 2 weeks. Filter light just showed up so I am fine using it for couple of weeks more.

    Trademe?

      Found just one for $60 but it is not the same size. I will get in roof tomorrow to measure the actual size.

      Thanks

        Yea Iv been using generic filters for years on my smartvent. No issues at all. (same square box filter held with springs and some duct tape)

          Thanks. Do you know the dimensions by any chance. Mine is also held with springs (no duct tape luckily). Where & how much you pay for the generic filter if I can ask? Trademe?

            @ace310: I bought from this guy a couple of times
            https://www.filterspecialists.co.nz/shop
            used a basic f8, and last year put in a carbon (I like to try cook asian and indian dishes that tend to smell). Dont actually know if it changed anything though as got a pretty decent extractor fan a a/c unit at the same time.
            Only needed duct tape as I dropped a spring and couldnt find it amoungst all the insulfluff
