Time saved is more important to me than money. I can always make more money, time I can't. I can't believe anyone is that desperate to save \$1.

So put me in as another ditto!

Yet another ditto.

I prefer NOT to cut fin slots in a kit, but that doesn't mean I won't do it! I recently cut fin slots in a LOC 3.9" tube and I thought it was an enjoyable experience, for being my first time. So, I'm not going to vote on the poll, since it is too restrictive, but here is my answer:

I would like to have my fin slots pre cut in a kit, even if it means paying another measly buck!

Hmm....I coulda just saved myself a couple of minutes and just said:

DITTO!

But if I did that...I wouldn't up my post count...

For LPR I would rather have the "Option" of doing it. That way, if I felt like doing it I could. If I didn't, I could just cut the tabs off the fins and glue. If structurally it didn't need it, I could just press on and build.

For larger rockets, I would rather have it done. (MPR, HPR)

Put me down for the extra dollar that it would cost a big time saver to me and I don't mind paying a little extra for the service.

Can and will, and do not mind in the least. I do not build so many rockets so fast that I feel I need to save that little bit of time.

Can and will. Precut slots are nice, if done correctly. When I built the Aerotech Astrobee D, the tube that came with the kit had the slots cut incorrectly. I called Aerotech, explained the situation, and they promptly sent me out a new tube. Great. Guess what, same problem. Went ahead and fixed the slots, which was a PITA but, no harm done.

I would prefer pre cut.
One less chance of me having something to post to the "How many times have you been cut?" thread

I would pay an extra dollar or two for a pre-slotted body tube.

For a kit, I'd just as soon pay a buck and get them clean and right.
