    if you order you ahve to put in data, anme adress, etc. and then the next window pops u hwo you wnat to ship. for me it ranged between 12 and 36 usd.

    Hi Jerby,

    I currently using both YY supergrap and Wilson Pro over grip bought from Tennis warehouse. What I can tell you is they feel exactly the same and both are made from same country. I am guessing they are the same grip just packaged differenly. I like YY one better (cost $2 vs Wilson) because the thin plastic layer are cut better than Wilson for some reason. I will suggest you to look around your area to see if you can get the Wilson Pro grip cheap. It is a good replacement to YY.

    Good luck.

    really? I found pro much better, stays dry better and doesn't lsoe it's tack so fast.

    aroudn here 30-reel pro (or yy) retail at 65usd, and at TW they're 24usd. if I buy 2+ reels is quiet cheeper (I can buy 4 reels at TW for just as much as 2 reels local..)

    There's one more seller who's site said "ask for price" in belgium, he's my last european hope

    prices in EU are just crazy compared to asia and america. i can understand that the demand and supply in asia is greater hence the savings, but if that's the case, shouldn't the EU have cheaper products than america?

    Is Wilson HQ based in America? importing costs and multiple in-between persons quickly drive up the price...

    if wilson HQ is in europe I'm completly lost...

    Hi Jerby,

    I did a search and I feel realy realy bad for you. You really can not find any cheap sporting goods in Holland. That really sucks.

    Why not sell 2 extra pack on ebay (in Netherland) or ask if any one want to buy it from you in your club?

    I make a purchase from TW every two weeks or so. I will be placing an order with TW in 2 days, so if you need anything, please contact me.

    I'm in California so I receive the product in one day but I also have to pay 8.25% tax, it's no big deal for me because the cost of shipping offsets it.

    1. US does not have many badminton players, but tons of tennis players, who also need grips.

    2. I think most of EU (at least, north and west) nations charges heavy tax on imported goods, to protect local business. US is not harsh in that category, I believe.

    If an online store is located in the same state of the buyer, buyer needs to pay state sales tax, just as you purchase locally. If the buyer is from another state, no tax is needed.
