Many of the people on this board have used them. I have purchased limbs, risers, and accessories from them. Their service is as prompt as most U.S. providers, and their prices, including shipping costs, are comparable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

The last set of limbs I ordered from them (Samick Masters at a very good price) arrived four days after they notified me they had been shipped. That's faster than I could get stuff from Lancaster.

Im in Finland which is a lot "out here", and I have got a set of limbs and just last week my 21 Excel from Altservices.They have been fast and fine in every aspect including an honest and frequent follow-up regarding the delay in getting out the Excel.I would expect them to serve well to anywhere.Recommended.

I have ordered from them as well.

What is the legal situation ordering from them with respect to paying the federal excise tax on archery equipment? Are we supposed to pay it ourselves?

Archery Equipment up to $1000 is exempt from the excise tax for personal use, so no duty on stuff coming into the US.

Fast shipping great people to deal with! Shipping is a bit more but prices usually make up for it!

Thanks for the feed back! I want to order some limbs from them, but always like to ask before going outside the US.

How did you guys make your payment? I assume credit cards?

I've used them before with great luck...and I just made a large order the other day...we'll see if the service remains superb...I expect it will.

Shipping is a little steep, but since I was making a large order ($600+), I joined their buyer's club (for $18) and will save 5% for the next year. That should help to defray shipping costs.

It's sorta a gamble as the prices adjust weekly according to the USD/GBP relationship...I shoulda ordered a week earlier and my total would've been about $25 cheaper...LOL.

But, I still saved on the order of $150 over Lancaster for the items I bought.

And yes, I used a credit card.

Ronin, you pay with credit card and when you order they will specify the price to you in U.S. dollars.
