    Just buy shuttles from the UK then if something is wrong it will be easier to rectify!

    I would buy from the UK but the prices of RSL Classic are around £17 a tube and from Sohubuy about £10 a tube. I haven't calculated cost with shipping and import tax yet but it will still be a lot cheaper.

    (lack of) communication with sohubuy

    The same thing seems to be happening to me. There was lots of communication & quick replies to my questions before I paid via paypal, but no replies to my emails asking for a tracking number since. It's been 7 days since I paid for my racquets & no response to any of my emails. Paypal shows that the $$ has been taken so I don't know what's up. This certainly wasn't the type of service/communication I was expecting after paying.... cd4se.. did you end up getting your shoes? (If not, i'm going to have to get in touch with paypal right away..:confused:

    sohubuy.com is a legit online trader. why not you go Facebook and look up e78, they are the same trader. just drop him a message in Facebook and you'll get faster response from Mr Chan there.

    thanks for the advice! I'll probably try the facebook route, but I still don't think that I should be running around trying to find out what's going on through other methods of contact when email was efficient & quick prior to me giving him my money. The drop-off to no replies from my inquiries is what is disconcerting...

    All is good now; apparently he was away on business for the past week.. hence the lack of response for 10 days. However, he did apologise for the mix-up & has been quick with responding once again.. i'll get to try that z-force soon enough!;)

    Is anyone else's service provider telling them that the sohubuy and e78 sites are a "threat" to be avoided?
    What has happened? It would be very sad if wongor's site was ruined by some hackers. :(

    Not my ISP, but sohubuy's IP address just got completely blocked by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and e78 routinely has a popup come up saying that some IP address part of its website gets blocked, although no functionality appears to be lost.

    I don't think it's hackers per se, but perhaps the website has some sort of ad present that comes from a different site that was deemed malicious.

    Bought a Yonex Voltric 50NEO recently.
    At first I was pretty skeptic since the website design is at low quality, but "YOU CANNOT JUDGE THE BOOK BY ITS COVER"

    The owner of the shop is one of the nicest guy on the internet in terms of dealing purchases thru e-mail.
    Lower prices than here in Australia, also you can custom strung your racket along with the purchase by just paying the string itself. Package nicely packed with original Yonex box and foam, 3 day express shipping throughout the weekend. Recommended!!
