mojo - where there's a will there's a way
or better yet,
where there's a will, there's eBay!
i have had similar problems as you... for good ice hockey sticks and Vans snowboard boots etc....
prices in europe are pisstakes. that, combined with currency exchange rates, mean american prices are sales of the century!
eventually, i found a store in Utah, that would sell me the Vans boots i wanted. they turned out to be defective, but Vans UK replaced them with better ones the next year. no stress and this was all despite the corporate insistence that no exportations be made to undermine their regional price fixings.
same too with hockey sticks. i got a few twigs for less than half their UK price and better still, the vendor ticked 'gift' on the import docs so i paid no tax or customs fees.
use paypal and you needn't trust your time and dollar to strangers on a www site. i mean christ, you don't even trust someone who tells you that there are better clothes out there than those made by Burton!
so either get to it, or rent-a-parka!
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
