    No readily available stock so far in Hong Kong, unlikely to have in future as well because of the high price (above HK$1,000). In other words, you probably need to order it before it is shipped from Japan.
     
  3. We have SHB95 Low and other new model such as SHB65.., you can fax me your model , size which you want to order. By the way , we have new version Mizuno badminton shoes in our shop . Wellcome you to visit us, you will find many different racket, racket bag, string, grip, shoes,etc..which you cannot find these in other place in Hong Kong.

    When you search this forum for the keyword "Luxis", you will know how much marketing I've done to your shop. :)

    Btw, I agree that Luxis is one the best place to buy badminton stuffs in HK. Besides reasonable price and wide variety of products, I think customer service is excellent. When an enthusiastic people like me buys something, I always want to have someone to discuss and explain to me the pros and cons for different models, or share some prior experience. This is something most other shops cannot offer.

    Do you ship to the US? If not, I could work something out with my family down there.

    SHB 95 Low in Japan HK$875.00
     
  11. We can ship to you or you can pick up by your family in our shop. But it is better to take out personally because you shall not pay the postage fee. If you have interest on it, you can give me your size and model (Yonex SHB 95 low / mid). We will sent you details price and give you a good after-sales service.

    luxis, can u give a little better pricing for international orders? We have to incurr shipping costs plus that we would be likely not requesting any after-sales service (from across the ocean).

    We don't get too much after sales service here (in HK) as well. In fact, unlike US (and probably Canada), the idea of "after sales service" is not that popular in HK. For example, money back return with 30 days ? replacement of a broken racquet (especially for parallel imported version such as those from Taiwan) ? I never thought about these before.

    Say what you will about Americans, but most of our retailers give quite good, customer friendly service (just stay away from mail order camera stores - most of them are run by thieves). It's nice to have supermarkets open 24 hours a day, fast food restaurants open until 2 a.m., many stores that give you a no-questions-asked refund if you have your receipt and the item is in new condition, etc.... Outside of large cities on either coast, most Americans are quite friendly, especially in the Midwest. Ricky, have you visited the States before?

    Based on several visits to Canada, I expect our northern neighbor is the same way, except possibly for Quebec. I had a five day trip to Quebec City in the winter of 1984 and encountered as many rude shop clerks, waiters, etc..., there as I had in four trips to France. In France, quite a few French weren't eager to help an English speaker, but usually were friendly if I gave it a try in French. In contrast, I found at least a half dozen Quebecois mocking my (then fairly reasonable) French and/or pretending they couldn't understand me.

    I can segue this experience to badminton, though. My hotel did have membership privileges with an indoor racquet club in downtown Quebec that was mostly a badminton club and I played with a friend's drunk dad who was insisting on playing in those old big furry apres-ski boots that were popular in the early 1980's. He further insisted on betting me $5/point and I beat him something like 15-3, but since he had just bought me, his son and two other friends a $700 (US) dinner (best meal I've ever eaten) including lots of superb bordeaux, I declined to collect on it.

    I haven't been there before, but I heard from various people that customer service is better emphasised in US. I think part of the reason is cultural differences. There are friendly people in HK as well (such as Luxis Sportnet), but you can't expect something like "money back guarantee".
