Billiard products purchase

I'm searching some billiard products from Taiwan. Especially Cyclop pool balls. If someone can get this cheap please let me know.

Wouldn't you be better off ordering them straight from the manufacturer? That way you won't have to pay double import duties.

Yes I could but I know that Chinese or Taiwanes dealers get Cyclop balls cheaper sometimes. Also Fury cues are sometimes cheaper for me to buy over a chinese dealer instead I buy directly from the Fury company. Chinese and Taiwanese manufacturer supports the other dealers in the country very cheap. I buy Andy cloth over a dealer and is the sane price like the Thailand distributor for Andy cloth pais directly by the facyory. I want find out how much would cost yhe Cyclop balls over a dealer in Taiwan or China. The import duty cost would be anyway only one time I guess because Cyclop is from Taiwan. Or am I wrong with this?

I had already a meeting with Cyclop last summer but they wanted we buy 1000 sets. Too much. I have a dealer in China they sell for Cyclop in China but the price is just a little bit to high still.

I was under the impression that they're manufactured in China. I may be wrong, though. :bow:

I'll ask around, but I have very little guan xi.

Ok. Thank you. I checked the business card now. The factory is Shanghai XinZhan Rubber Co., Ltd. in Shanghai. Does Taiwan has to pay import taxes from China? I guess not or am I wrong?
