Hi bro, is rockbottomgolf reliable? Coz I'm thinking of getting a VRS driver from them...

just got my new driver and woods from them bro. didnt noe u wanted to order if not can order together to share shipping cost.
good and reliable.
stuff came within 5 days.

delivery by fedex.

Thanks bro. Think next time we can order together! Smile

Bro, if you're looking for VRS Driver, I can suggest this EBay retailer Kelley Golf - http://stores.ebay.com/kelley-golf

Prices are pretty reasonable and they ship fast too. I bought my VRS family from them (Driver, 3W, 3H) and ship it via Comgateway. Can always check them out to do a comparison with rockbottomgolf

TGW.com selling for $199.95 + shipping ($48.76). Sound like a good deal.

Coz right now rockbottomgolf actually selling the VRS at $179 and im sharing with my friends as well so the total cost for me actually comes to around $200 for myself. So the difference between the 2 sites acutally is not much Smile Anyway, thanks bro. Next time i have another place to compare already. Perhaps next time we can start a thread when we are all buying from overseas so that we can save mroe on the shipping. Just my 3 cents worth of opinion Smile

Its in USD. so its around $250 sing. Compared to the $600++ sing at golf house, its quite a steal.

I bought most of clubs from golfio or golfetail USA. They are so much cheaper. Shipping per set is between us$60-90 depending on shipper. However I am not sure how gst work. My last shipment came with an invoice of us$900 but I was not asked to pay for gst. For golf set it's best to get them to courier directly to sg. Do not use vpost for big item they cost more compare to dhl, ups, FedEx. USPost and Canada Post are super slow.

I just got a $300+ shipping charge from vPost for a set of irons (7 pieces)! They were supposed to repack it, but then not much difference after repacking (note a charge of $12 for repacking). They claim the box is big (40x38x110), but when I look at the photo of the clubs and box, there is so much empty space in the box! It's been 2 weeks of disputes but no proper answer from them - only excuses.
Any bros in GR had this experience, and can share how you managed to settle such disputes?
Well, just be careful how you ship with vPost.
Yes Vpost is super ex for big item. They go by weight + size. They are only good for small item e.g sunglasses, t shirt. For golf set it's best to courier directly. Price between us$60 - 90.

3balls rate is decent. 42.95. I got lucky the other day. Found a seller who would ship a driver to sg for 22. It was an error but he honored it.
