Hey,

 

I've recently found the reseller https://www.cyclopsoptics.com/ which has some products I can't get otherwise here in germany.

 

Has anyone had any experience, good or bad, with this reseller? Tax behavious, shipping time, quality?

 

Cheers

I've been dealing with Cyclops for years and have always had excellent service.

 

As the thread referenced above shows, you need to be aware of what your customs/tax/import implications are for your country. I imagine that you'd be be hit for VAT at the border but I don't know how the system works in the EU.

 

Steve.

I ordered a a bunch of QHY products from them in April/May when everything was shutting down due to COVID. Took a few weeks to get to Australia but the service was great. Phone call the day after ordering for clarification, call quality wasn’t great being international but good service.
