    i ordered from the shanghai factory, and paying RMB to them. if i pay USD to them, the price is a bit cheaper, however, i don't really wanna take the risk to TT USD from sydney to shanghai. i prefer to ask my shanghai branch staff to pay RMB in shanghai, and get the receipt straight away.

    well it seems that money is no major issue for you...i'm not exactly sure how much they'll tax you, australia's customs is quite retarded, so if you write gift for 500 tubes i'm quite sure they'll be stupid enough to not tax you. But in the rare event they DO tax you, my guess is somewhere around 30%, our tariffs on consumer products are very high, importing and paying the tax normally means its still cheaper than buying locally, most things here are at least 50% more expensive than asia...

    But are you sure thats the cheapest you can get? I mean its $19 just buying out of a shop in HK. While $20 is a fair price, buying 500 tubes is quite insane especially for australia's weather. Also have you tried RSL classic? Aeroplane black is on par with AS50, but RSL classic is just behind the two, and you can get those at around $15/tube, once again, just out of a shop in HK.

    Btw all of these shuttles are great, much better than shuttles any clubs around melbourne uses

    are you sure it is EG1130 black lable? as there are few kinds of aeroplane 1130. if yes, can you please ask the seller how he gets so cheap, from the factory or the wholeseller? has it been repakaged? thank you very much.

    Hmmm i'm not sure how u can get it, if you know someone in HK you can get them to buy it at shops and send you. The shop owner told the person buying for me that these are very high grade shuttles and general players wouldn't need such high quality. But when you live in australia $20-25/tube for the best shuttles seems like peanuts...

    I do notice most ppl in my social breaks shuttles from hitting the feathers...sadly there are a few arm smashers in the group that has very poor accuracy, but the AS-50 actually lives through a few feather strikes unlike most other shuttles. When shuttles don't arrive in time like now i'm using some Xin shuttles, they're $15/tube if u buy more than 5 in aus, but their quality is quite poor, 1 mis-smash and you can kiss it good bye.

    Someone posted in a different thread a place to order RSL classic for $18/tube in 50 tubes batches. you can take a look at that

    en~, i have had really bad experience with buy shuttlecocks in the retail shop. as i said, most of aeroplane shuttlecocks here are repakaged, and there are always 2 to 3 bad quality shuttlecocks inside. so the only way i can go through is buying from the factory straight away. hope oz dollar keeps going strong, and it may save me some dollars in the future.
    for my club, we are playing 3 to 4 times a week, and normally we use 2 to 3 tubes once. so 500doz can last us for one year. the only problem is storage, as oz weather is too dry.

    You'd best ask.
    I've been trying to find out for myself, the best I could find is to expect 5% on value of goods, then 10% GST on total valuation.

    Note: that's just what I think, not what the customs will end up charging you.
    However, just to give some comparisons... $20 seems expensive.

    The last time I bought these shuttles from Sydney (50doz) overall cost is $21.50 per tube inc. delivery to Melbourne.

    However, as you mentioned, that maybe because they've been repackaged.

    I am thinking of taking part.. just worried about overall tax costs

    Hmm as a importer, In my opinion, you need to declear this product as "animal products" and also "Timber Products". Otherwise can be get a fine up to $3000 and will loss your goods. Hope this helps but please confirm with the gov department as well.

    are there any distributor sticks on the tube?
    the factory staff told me they never put the any sticks on the tube before seal it.
