West Marine: Super Gard™ Fender 2-Pack Product Display

I have used these fender for 13 months , added no air. Made my own fleece fender covers for them. They are nice fenders IMO.

But that is the heart of my question, the fenders you link me to would cost $240 for 6 were the walmart fenders would cost me $66 for 6. The only difference I see it that the West Marine fenders are bigger @ 8x26. Is there really that much of a difference for $180?
