Clinton's halters are actually only $40. I think you may have been looking at an item combo. I use clinton's halters myself. I've tried a imitation Parelli/clinton training halter before and couldn't stand it. What make clinton's halters better is the stiff rope. It maintains its shape, and is less comfortable to lean on. And when I say stiff I mean stiff. The imitation ones flop all over. It wears in after a few uses, but they last a looong time and are great quality. Same thing with his leads. They're so soft easy on the hands, yet they are heavier and carry the energy of your hands through the whole rope. If you want something with softer rope, I'd look at stacy westfalls halters with the twisted noseband. They seem nice too. Just my opinion though, I guess. You do get what you pays for though.
Also, clinton has a sale on black friday. All of his rope products will be 25% off.
