    I'm pretty sure you'd have to technically declare it. And the excuse as a gift for someone else wouldn't work either. If you're caught, they'd seize it.

    Thats what i expect also.
    If ever i need to declare it. Are they have their own source for the price? Or they will believe the price i provide to them? Let say i print out the receipt.

    5-10pcs might be more reasonable for gift or self use but 200++ pcs are somewhat to much to be ignored. Do you want to strangle someone with those many:eek:

    I think you are better off taping and strapping the packets to your body and limbs if you don’t want to pay extra on them. :)

    How will you convince a judge that 200+ Sets of strings are just “presents”?

    Personal use? maybe you can tell them it’s for twenty years supply….
