    Yep, it took about 3-4 days from HK to Canada. Very happy with the purchase but I prefer not to deal with the PayPal. After I uploaded money to the Paypal, it didn't give me the payment choice of using my credit card (although I had already registered my credit card with the Paypal).

    i may be visiting honk kong this summer and i'm interested in buying from e78. from what i've read in this thread, they sell real yonex rackets, which has lead to my suspicion... WHY ARE THE RACKETS SO CHEAP?!? are they actually authentic, or should i just go for mybadmintonstore?

    they are authentic.

    their prices are lower than HK street prices by a little mainly because they are located in a small unit in an industrial building. their overhead is smaller than the street stores.

    their prices are also non-credit card prices, so they don't have the 3-4% credit card fee built in. furthermore, their prices do not include shipping. MBS prices includes both the credit card and shipping fee.

    I was just wondering about the site e78.com.hk , I'm thinking about ordering it online but im not sure how much it would cost, is the sites currency in Hong Kong Dollars or in CNY? Also does this site sell strings as well?

    3) Best to ask him yourself through email.

    Instant BC email notifications, pop-up email push notifications, and having to constantly work on a computer can really make one hyper-connected. :p No prob.

    Well yes prices are in HKD. I assume that's what you're talking about. Best way to do it is just to email Mr. Chan telling him what you want and he'll give you the price breakdown with shipping.

    They are both good, for different things. But I agree that it's easier to communicate with Eric since he speaks English.
