    I have a question.... howcome mybadmintonstore sells Li Ning N series rackets for cheaper than it states on the Li Ning website? ex. the Li Ning website sells the n70 for 264$ CAD ish, but MBS sells it for $130.

    It's pretty standard industry practice to have a recommended retail price (from the manufacturer) which independent retailers are not obliged to follow.

    there is supposed to be a new version coming out. and unlike the AP62, this is not made in USA but in Taiwan.

    Always buy strings from these guys and they're excellent to deal with. Will definitely visit their physical store when I go to hk.

    the store for sure is trustworthy.

    the question is if anything happens to the package due to the carrier, is there any insurance for it?

    PayPal also accepts debit cards as payment mode in india. So, you can use your atm/debit card for the payment and instead of going to western union money transfer, you can deposit the money in your account

    Hope this helps!

    Demand for password authentication at the start of the website and each section

    Today i visited MBS website when the pop-up window appear asking me to fill-in password and log-in. I think some bot is messing with MBS website and I hope that forumer or anyone who would like to make a purchase be aware to not end up filling in your log-in names and password that maybe important to you. Someone hv probably hacked the website to steal whatever log-in names and passwords you have. Be cautious, and Kwun, i hope you inform Winston of this. If you are browsing the web right now, just press cancel and the pop-up window will close and you can still browse with no problem.

    Thanks...

    Hi, I've bought from MBS 14 times (excluding MBP) ranging from rackets to strings to grommets and other bits and bobs and as far as I can remember, i've got VAT-ed only once.

    As Winston does a good job with his CN23 form, it rarely catches the eyes of the guys on the conveyor belt when it comes in. But probably the packaging of a new 9 racket bag is quite eye catchy (big and bulky) so the chances of getting VAT-ed is much higher I would think.
