    Yes, essentially. Set up the initial transaction by talking to him over his email, which is wongor@163.com if you didn't already know that. After everything's confirmed the PayPal address is [FONT=宋体]ptt78@yahoo.com.hk

    My Arc Z 2U TW codes & specs.

    I noticed that the e78 site and the sohubuy website have difference prices for the same rackets. For example, NS9900 TW and Arc10 TW cost HKD10 more on sohubuy

    Generally, the prices should be the identical. Considering that 10 HKD to is like $1.25 USD/ 1.30 CAD... It doesn't really matter though. :p Maybe the price list on e78 isn't updated, etc... You can just mention it to him if you want, that might sort things out.

    the NS9900 SP is 50HKD difference, there could be others which are even more
    and if you buy multiple items, the difference adds up
    just saying, you can get a slightly better deal if you order from the e78 site

    Don't you pay in HKD in the end @ sohubuy? The difference is probably due to exchange rate differences, you can't expect them to update everyday ;). So whatever rate you got when you checked probably isn't the same as when they set the prices [​IMG]

    I don't know where you're looking but the HKD price is exactly the same for 9900 (unless it has been updated in the mean time). I forgot they had HKD listed as well on the sohubuy :p.
    But since "wongor" is also a member here he might have seen your comment. Do you remember the different prices?

    the sohubuy prices have been changed to the e78 prices, I just noticed that yesterday
    NS9900 TW used to be 1050 on e78, 1060 on sohubuy
    its now 1050 on both

    My "aunty" ordered the Victor Green Shuttles from sohubuy recently, and it costs $1116 HKD then another $181 for delivery to Western Australia, then a 6% on the total for paypal. This give you 9 tubes of the best Victor shuttles.

    When it arrived, only 4 of the 9 tubes were Victor Green shuttles, and the remaining 5 shuttles where random crappy brands, not even Victor... or Victor Green. From the 4 Victor Green champion tubes, they aren't even real, because she normally buys them locally. The quality wasn't of standard.

    For all those who say that sohubuy is legit, I would be the first to say that they aren't unless they are able to either give the real stuff or give some sort of refund...

    Regards,

    They made a mistake with my order too, but informed me about it before it arrived and offered to refund me the difference (I used it as credit for a later order)
    They accidentally strung my two rackets with NBG95 instead of 98, and the other 2 packs were also 95 instead of 98

    @dawei94 at least they told you that there was a mistake and they fixed it? Just wondering, how much is their stringing service, and the racket you got from them? Genuine or clones? At least you didn't order 9 tubes of shuttle, and only get 4 of the 9 you ordered and they aren't even real goose feathers. They are Champion levels and they don't even glide like one. She emailed Victor to see who if sohubuy gets stock from them.

    I've never had any problems with sohubuy or e78 for that matter. Bought quite a lot of things from that store in the past.
