    I ordered a racket from MBS, and I live in Canada. Should I be expecting extra fees when it arrives?

    Cross my fingers, but in the over 15 times I've ordered baddy stuff from Taiwan and HK I've never had to pay extra when delivered via Canada Post.

    Just make sure not by US or FedEx as those will charge heavy fees.

    What'd you order? Duoforce? :)

    You already know ;P
    I used EMS, since they recommended it. I don't really mind paying the extra $10, but I hope it doesn't add up in the end.

    Yes. The site looks sketchy, I'm not going to lie, but after some forum members here advised me that they were reliable, I went for it. Racket arrived quickly and safely.

    Completely reliable, and Winston sells only authentic equipment. I've bought from him numerous times and couldn't be more pleased with the service and quality. I've also visited the shop a couple of times and bought directly.

    The reason why I return to Winston to buy my stuff is because of his service. Its reliable and fast.

    I bought 3x Victor Bravesword 12 Gen2, 2x Ashaway Zymax 67s 200m, MBS clamps, and string puller and I couldnt be more happier with what I got. the rackets were nicely packaged, and the clamps are just top quality.

    Even though the estimated shipping time was 10-21 business days, I got it delivered to my house on a Sunday. It took 7 days to get to my house.

    Absolutely great. I've spent at least $1000CAD at his store.

    In Edmonton, AB, the market for badminton is nearly non existent. Prices are outrageous, 240 to 270 for a High end Yonex Racket. Stringing services charges around 15-25$ just for string (not even stringing the racket. 1 PACK)

    Most people I know here always get their stuff from overseas.

    I mainly do bulk orders with a few friends of mine, and we save so much.

    It took about 4 business days. Ordered on Monday, arrived Friday. Quicker if you live in the West Coast, longer as you go more east.

    I was having problems ordering from their site ; it wouldn't allow any credit card payments. Winston replied to my e-mail within minutes - in perfect English ! - and explained why. (It was a temporary dispute between other people ) A very good service from really nice guys.
