    I just ordered a set of plastic protectors ( 4 pieces ) and 25 rubber rings. My total was $78.61 and shipping was $43.95. LOL

    I'm not going to say who it was with, since I did have the choice to decline.... but I will say, I'll never order from them again.

    Quoted from puck:

    That 43.95US or CAD? To think that for another $250US you could have the entire machine delivered to your door.

    Yeah, that's US dollars.

    How much do you want to bet it arrives with a $18 or so postal amount on it??

    Quoted from puck:

    Another option.
    Contact the amazing people at Nitro.

    What do they actually carry though? I wanted Superband rings/rubbers and Plastic protectors for my Hobbit, I didn't see anything like that on there site.

    Quoted from PNorth:

    I guess I hope I'm misinterpreting this... To me this comes across as that $30 is charged regardless of what the actual shipping costs are.
    As others have noted, it's extremely disappointing to be charged exorbitant shipping fees, then to see the actual postage considerably lower when it arrives at your door.
    I can't see how Marcos has any excuse when companies like Coin Taker and Cliffy can ship to Canada for reasonable costs.

    Think again, see my earlier post $43.95 for rubbers and plastic. YAY!

    Late update as I was away. I picked up the package today and was dinged another $15.17 for customs charges. I cant find a postage total anywhere on the box, but no way this small box of 25 rings and 4 protectors cost $43.95 to ship.

    $200 to re-ring a game. LOL. I wont ever buy from them again. ( wasn't Marco, to be clear but another top seller )

    Quoted from Mitch:

    I just orderd 8 drop targets and decals and 5 rubber shooter tips from marco, shipping was around $11 on a $50 order not terrible, if you keep it small and light its not bad.

    This order was my worst so far, $43 US for shipping on 4 plastic inlane protectors and a few rubber rings.

    To top it off, SuperBand rings don't work on the Hobbit slingshots....
