It's a pain in the ace.

Customs, 100%.
Can't guarantee a delivery time, therefore can't offer an acceptable level of service.

I guess that's reasonable. It's just frustrating because the online retailers up here have horrible selection and half of the retailers in the States won't ship here and those that do tend to charge an arm and a leg.

Customs is the reason Lat 64 orders take so bloody long to get here too. Takes forever to get them restocked...and when they do, bam..gone in a few days. Then, here we go again.



Still worth the troubles, IMO.

ZJ is correct... it was surprisingly more like KC Pro than DX/Pro-D. It took a lot of dings and scratches but no chunks.

I wonder how fast these will beat in now? They are tougher than I was thinking.

They look like they'll be pretty understable in no time to me. KC Pro Rocs take anywhere from a couple months to a couple years to get flippy but they start out 12 notches more overstable than a Fuse. I wouldn't worry that your Pro River or Fuse won't turn over on you...

No; your molded plastic is not "technology"; just like your cool Blizzard disc isn't a "game changer!".
