I’ve ordered from them on eBay in the past.  Not sure what shipping costs are via their website, but shipping is free on eBay.  Had the clubs the next day, yes you read that right, free overnight ship

Got my set of Vokey forged wedges today. Open box. Grips are still in plastic! $280 what a steal. Thanks OP

over half of the $57 went to cover FedEx brokerage fees. I have ordered several watches from Japan and found that if I use EMS expedited shipping it goes to me via USPS and I have never had to pay dut

Didn’t have to pay any duty fees and my order was over $1k.  Maybe just got lucky....

Free shipping as well when purchasing directly on their site.

So just an update on my purchase with them.  I guess I spoke too soon on paying the duty taxes.  I got an invoice from FedEx today for duty taxes due on my purchase.  $57 taxes on an $1121 order.

 

The letter included from FedEx explained the duty taxes and the only way you wont pay the taxes is if the seller lists the item as a gift on the import paperwork, which looking at the included invoice they did not.  And even with the gift clause you will still pay tax if the declared value is above a certain amount.  That amount wasnt mentioned as it was stated that it depends on what country it is coming from and what classification of goods the items falls under.

Just be aware when making purchases from them that you may be liable for the duty taxes, take it into account when looking at their prices.

$57 bucks is not bad on a $1k purchase.

Was the invoice you received from FedEx contained with the shipment itself? (with the paperwork that comes with the shipment)

A friend ordered 3 dozen golf balls (Pearl White BStone Tour B X) on their website on Wednesday afternoon taking advantage of their 30% off Black Friday sale. He received them this morning. Japan to PA in under 48 hours via FedEx shipped free. Amazing deal.

No it was not included with the delivery.  It showed up in the mail about a week after delivery.
