    Hi guys, just want to know if anyone's experienced buying from this website e78.com.hk. The owner seems friendly, and the price offered to me for a Yonex Ti-10 is VERY good. I am considering, but just worried.

    If you've purchased a racquet from them before (a yonex preferably) let me know if their stuff is authentic, and their delivery is fast and safe!

    Cheers,

    Thanks in advance!

    I did purchase from their store, small shop but with alot of stuff. They are nice and everything is authentic, they bear a rather good reputation locally. In term of buying online then I don't consider them as good as the others, the payment process is totally not preferrable. Of course if you don't mind those hurdles please go ahead and let me know how it goes. By the way, I didn't buy any YY and I don't know why you have to specify YY, the Gosen I bought is authentic but from your logic YY might not be authentic.

    I bought it online thru e78, I actually find the online payment is fine. ilovedude, what's wrong with the online payments? were you using paypal to pay mr. chan? I recently bought shb100mx and a taipei open shirt from him, once the payment went thru, *zoom* within a week, it arrived.

    total was about 120 CDN? with a 3% paypal transaction fee.. but since jeffo lives closer to HK, i think shipping fee is cheaper.

    oops, i didn't notice.... hrm, maybe you can just email them what racquets your are looking for, and he will quote you....

    Coz I personally emailed Mr. Chan, and he came back with a quote very quickly.

    Or you could get a friend to help you read the chinese, then you can email him with what you want.

    yeah, Mr. Chan personally e-mails you back. He's a fast worker. You can type it in English, and yeah he'll reply with you with Chinese haha. If you can't read Chinese just Babelfish it :p

    I find that e78 is one of the better shops to purchase online. I bought a pair of shoes and a polo from them and paid using paypal. No problems and the shipping charge was $120 HKD, which in my opinion, very reasonable considering its airmailed from Hong Kong.

    ha ha, i would like to remind you that the shop is hidden in a industrial building, not as a regular high street shop. but the owner can bring over the goods to nearby MTR (underground) station to trade.

    make sure you give them a call for direction.
