FYI - Tony can ship from a Washington, USA address. I think it cost a couple hundred to send my crate to Denver. The other time he personally delivered them with gear...that is what I call service.Are Chanman tables really that much more expensive than a comparable BBO? I wouldn't have thought so. I remember way back when looking at BBO's online catalogue, and directly comparing cost to Tony's, doing the exchange rate math, and Tony's came out a mile ahead. Now, I live in the same city and don't have to pay for shipping, so that probably has something to do with it, but certainly not all.
Sounds like a guy who doesn't know his business or market very well, or has his head stuck in the sand.
