    rkep on ebay used to sell victor... i've bought many victors from them, shipped to vancouver... excellent seller, high ratings

    but recently, victor taiwan asked them to stop... however, you can still email him directly at RKEPracket@gmail.com

    @visor

    I assume you've ordered from RKEP before and your from Canada, can I ask how long the shipping is from RKEP to Canada? Also does he price his Victor goods the same as e78?

    yep

    takes about 3-5 working days, assuming customs doesn't hold it for too long

    pretty much the same when i checked after conversion, maybe a few bucks cheaper as stringing is only $10CAD string and labour included

    his store on ebay is very dependable, so is he... i've probably bought around 5 victor and 2 yonex rackets from him in the past 12 months, along with apparel, grips, strings etc.

    I also got my Victor MX80, Yonex VT80 LTD, and Babolat X-Feel Blast from RKEP (through visor on a group buy). Also bought tons of RKEP G09 grips too. He's a reliable seller.

    There's e78 and sohobuy(?) that sell badminton stuff. I read in the forums that kwun (adminstrator) buys from there. And that sohobuy is run by the nephew (I think) of the owner of e78. From what I read...both are legit and sell a wide range of badminton stuff.

    . I don't have personal experience so I can only go by what I have read in the forums. As for paypal...it's not so bad. I finally got an account this year. Ebay too!! I don't keep my VISA credit card number stored in there. Once I make a purchase, I immediately take the credit card info out.
