    Default where to buy Yonex strings in the UK

    HI all
    I am new to this forum
    Please advise me on where to buy genuine yonex strings in the UK . Which can include outside UK source as well
    Also if I buy from outside UK will I incur VAT when I receive it in UK
    The reason I am trying to know all these information is because I know how to string the rackets and wants to start doing so. Hence to make some margin I want to source these different strings at price which is affordable so that I can do the re-string at an affordable price to UK customers
    Any help appreciated and looking forward for all the replies
    Thanks

    W & D Strings and Apollo Leisure sell strings direct to stringers. Sadly I don't think you are going to buy direct from Yonex who are the only wholesaler in the true sense.

    Yes If ordering from anywhere outside UK 20% VAT is added on entry. For ordering outside the EU an Import duty is also added and for badminton strings that is 8%. (It's price + duty = X then add 20%)

    Hello
    I live outside UK but many times I order strings from UK e-shops.
    If you want to buy 33ft sets then my advice is not to order from UK or europe mainland as the prices are high. My advice is to order from mybadmintonstore.com (it is in Hong Kong) it is legit, has a very wide range to choose and prices are much better.
    About the 200m reels I usually order from stringersworld.co.uk, badmintonstrings.com and also many times from mybadmintonstore.com
    I cannot give you advice about phisical stores where you can go there and buy at the counter.

    I second Stringers World as a very good source for reels of string.
