Hi all, as I have not heard from dk, there is 1 spot remaining for this group-buy. In the spirit of fairness, the slot shall go to the first person to post their confirmed interest in the post after this. Please also indicate your preferred colour. I shall make payment to Monument Golf tomorrow.

Cheers and hope everyone has had a great weekend.

Dear all, group buy is now closed, TeD has taken the last slot. I will make payment to Monument Golf today and keep everyone posted of progress.

Apologies to dk, as I did not hear from you before the earlier stipulated cut-off date. As such, your spot has been taken up by TeD. If you are still keen, perhaps you may wish to approach monsterlonestar/angeldogleslie/pug to start another group-buy?

Cheers.

Payment has been made. The amount billed to me is SGD397.60 so this works out to be SGD39.76 each.

There is still a slight chance that we may still be hit with GST as the value is calculated based on an FX rate at the customs discretion.

Will notify everyone once they arrive. Cheers!

Monument Golf just emailed that they have been shipped, and we should expect them to arrive in 7-10 days.

I understand that that Paypal's conversion rates may be a little dear but I wanted to eliminate 1 uncertainty by locking in the FX rate. In my experience, the conversion rates used by Visa or Mastercard aren't that far off either, usually 300-400bp from mid-market rates.

Today's mid-market rate is 1.37
Paypal rate 1.42
Visa/Mastercard 1.40-1.41

The difference would have come up to about SGD8 so I decided to go ahead.

Hello all. 
Can I suggest we create a separate whatapps group so that we can arrange for the collection of the item and pay up the reminding amount. ?

Gd idea. Milkem bro should have most of all the contacts. I suppose that's also his intention when the goods arrive.

Actually, that was the intention behind asking everyone to WhatsApp me when they have done the transfer, and then I'd be able to set up a group chat with everyone in it.

However, in retrospect, there will only be 9 collections at most so it's not too difficult either. In any case, I am located in Seletar area, and my office is in Tuas.

All paid and collected


Hi all,

The final transaction value as posted previously, was $397.60. As such, the effective net cost of each strap is $39.76.

You may contact me a 961.Triple8.64 to arrange for collection. I am located in Seletar, and usually in Tuas during office hours. Please do bring exact change of $9.80 (rounded up), or you may also make a transfer prior to collection.

I have a game tomorrow morning and will be field-testing it Smile Will report back after the game!

Cheers

Mine can't fit as its the biggest ProX7. Normal sized range finders should fit.

Anyone wants to take over can contact me at Eight138Five708. Thanks.

Field test was a success, worth the money IMHO. Magnets were very strong, didn't budge at all even when I drove down kerbs, and over roots. Really made it substantially more convenient to use a rangefinder, instead of having to always retrieve it from the carry case. 

Previously, I had the carry case hanging off my bag behind the buggy. Everytime I want to use it, I'd have to go around the back to retrieve the rangefinder from the case, walk to the ball to laser, walk back to bag to keep the rangefinder before grabbing a club. With this, I drive all the way up to the ball position, laser my next shot options while still seated in the buggy, and only get out to grab a club when I have decided on how I want to proceed.

I was warned by several friends, having the rangefinder stuck on the buggy frame also means that there is a chance you may forget to keep it after your game.

And true enough, in only my 2nd game with it, I nearly forgot about it when I got back to the buggy drop-off area. Unloaded all my stuff, was about to walk off and very fortunately was reminded by the marshall that my rangefinder was still on the buggy.

So guys, do be reminded to put the rangefinder back in your bag before you return the buggy!

Mika, melv and oldie-newbie still have not collected. Perhaps you may wish to check with them if you can take-over any of theirs?

On that note, guys it has been 3 weeks since the straps arrived. Please do make the effort to collect them.
