    Default Aeroplane's for Vancouver, BC

    I've been looking, and I noticed shuttlecock101 doesn't ship to Canada. As well as, I recall actually going to Hong Kong and buying it there to be a lot cheaper...

    Anyone know where to actually buy in HK or how to get them in Vancouver for a lot cheaper?

    I'm looking at Aeroplane Black EG1130 at Speed 78 at the moment.

    Also, someone in Hong Kong just bought 16 tubes of EG1130 for me, however, they bought them at speed 49, which the sales clerk told them it was the same as speed 78 over here... I checked it up again and it seems that 51 corresponds to 78 instead.

    I know, however, that some brands' may be a bit different. Anyone know anything of this?

    Shuttlecock 101 doesn't ship to Canada? They used to; and their website says they still do. Did you contact them?
    Oh well, if you are in HK frequently, that is surely the best place for a deal.

    There was quite a bit of chatter about the speed of these shuttles a while back. http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...=1#post1395344

    Hmm yes... I see... So there seems to be some room for error there... but in any case I believe 49 should be the wrong one for Vancouver right? As it seems even with the debate, 50 seems to be the minimum contender with 78's.

    They say they ship to Canada (but have to checkout with the Shopping Cart process). However, when I do that and enter my Postal code and Province, they say "Sorry, we currently do not ship to that location".

    As for Hong Kong... yes it's a lot cheaper there, however my contact over there who just bought 16 tubes bought them for $21 CAD per tube, which I don't think is really a deal at all. Especially since I've seen much less ordering online. Which leads to me to ask where people are buying from in Hong Kong?

    $21 CAD is about what I pay here locally. Maybe a loonie more at times, but that's all...

    Hmm... It's just that on Shuttlecock 101 they have it for $18.30 for 50 tubes. And from what I hear, buying locally in Hong Kong is a lot cheaper.

    Is that price for just a tube or for bulk orders?

    Just email them. I've only ordered from them once, but it was very good service. With the Loonie at 1.04, how can you lose?

    I'll give it a try. Also, did you have to pay tax when you ordered?

    Exclamation shuttlecock101.com does ship to Canada!

    Hi fellow badminton players,
    Shuttlecock101.com does ship to Canada and is still offering the best prices and best services for Aeroplane shuttlecocks.

    Please make sure to ask for the loyalty program when ordering more than 50 tubes.

    It was a bug in the system during upgrade that prevent placing orders to Canada.
    It has been quickly fixed.

    Thanks for the folks sending us emails pointing out the problem!
    It is greatly appreciated!

    Happy Smashing!

    I just bought 25 tubes from shuttlecock101 as well. Great communication and nice people to work with. I was able to arrange local meet and pick up. Will definitely buy again from them.

    cheers
    Hugh
