    Just one question, seems that rackets in CAN are cheaper than in US, I just wonder:

    Will the dealers (Lee's, Yo's, etc) ship rackets to US??? I don't mind pay for some shipping as long as it reasonable.

    BTW, will I be charged for tax if I am in US and buy racket in CAN?

    No. Since there is actually proof (i.e. package shipped out of country), there is no need to pay our dreaded GST (Goods & Services Tax) of 7%.

    But you are responsible for any duties/taxes that might be levied by your government.

    Nope, you don't need to pay tax but sometimes the currency rate changes or the credit card charges you have to pay a higher rate.
    Thanks

    no tax, but however depending on NY, maybe they will charge you, but I doubt it. Racquets are a lot cheaper in CAN but do you still get the warranty as you would with a US racquet?

    I never really care about warranty on racket. Therefore, I am now, seriously considering buying racket from CAN market.
