Flow m11 bindings to Canada under 200?

Hi

New to the forum, and I'm also trying to piece together my first set.

I'm looking at flow bindings, from what I've read people say to stay away from their lower end models. If that is really the case, i'm looking in to purchase
Flow M11 or Flow NXT series bindings. I'm on a budget, so I'm looking for 2009 or 2008 models of these that will ship to Canada, either with DUTY included or shipped as a gift.

If you guys have any other suggestions I'm open to all suggestions

if you can find out a site, they will probably be cheap, if you can get them shipped as a gift great, but if not the duty is based on the price, so if its inexpensive you wont have to pay too much.

If you're getting an item shipped to Canada, make sure the vendor DOES NOT use UPS! Make crystal clear what shipping company the vendor will use because, unless you're getting it shipped Expedited (which usually costs considerably more), you WILL be raped on UPS's brokerage charges. If possible, have the item shipped via USPS.

Thanks,

I'm getting either the m9's or m11's from wiredsport. He says he uses USPS, so that should minimize the brokerage fee's hopefully.

Using this calc as an estimate.

You will love those bindings!

We choose USPS to Canada because USPS handles the brokerage at no extra charge to the customer (it is included in the price we pay them). We make all items a flat $15.00 USD shipping charge to Canada (including complete packages) to ease the pain on our Canadian customers (our actual costs on shipping to Canada are significanly more, even on small items like bindings).

We wish that we could label pacakges as gifts or label them as having a lower value than they do, but unfortunately the law prohibits us from doing so on retail sale items.

The $15.00 includes shipping and brokerage. Tax and duty (duty is just another word for a special import tax) are a function of the destination country and area. Unfortunately, there is no legal way of getting around Canadian tax and duty charges and they are not included.

We try to make it as inexpensive as possible for our brothers to the north...and not only because we love to ride up there

Ah thought so, but that's still cool how you guys cover the brokerage fee. The duty shouldn't be too much. I just wish you could label your stuff as SKI's and no duty. How can ski's be duty free but snowboard equipment can't.
