    I saw some good but not cheap prices for badminton gears. Has anybody tried to buy something from this site? Did they sell genuine items?
    Thanks for sharing information!

    Yes, it looks good. Just want to confirm.
    The Yonex Mavis 350 sell for only $9, and free shipping. That's the best price I found on decent internet stores.

    Yes! They only ship to US and Canada. And most of their products are free shipping.

    Still good enough. Think about it, several dozens of shuttles, several rolls of string, that's $100. YOu can save $50 more comparing to order them in other places. Sounds like I'm the dealer, but that's what I think.
    If they sell genuine items, then it's good to order badminton gears there.

    uh, you guys better make sure about the whole free shipping thing, because i am pretty sure you still have to pay customs and other stuff. that probably tacks on enough for the venture to be equal to badminton alley or other online stores.

    Well, I have checked the canadian customs website. The badminton rackets and birds are free of duty.

    Hey, matt, you are not a nice guy. You have imported so many gears, you should know the customs.

    "Just because you buy an item from a U.S. store does not mean it was made in the United States. It's quite possible it was imported into the United States first and, if so, you may be charged duty when it comes into Canada"
    straight from this site
    i am not sure if its the correct site, but i know that the whole NAFTA thing exists.
    was this what you were talking about Matt?

    This is the website set up by Bay Badminton Center (BBC) in Burlingame, California. All their stuff is legit.
