    What company do you guys use to ship internationally? I usually ship US postal service priority mail in the US, but have never shipped racquets internationally. I am shipping to Croatia. I am wondering what the pros and cons are of each company. I know some make you fill out a customs form.

    I believe USPS is the cheapest one to send a package internationally. I sent my racquets to Germany, Switzerland, and Australia using USPS.

    Between the baseline and netcord.
    I've always used USPS since it's less than $30 to send internationally (California to The Netherlands); I've shipped racquets and all kinds of other things. Surprisingly, it only takes a few days (Send on Saturday - arrives by Wednesday or Thursday).
    I don't recommend UPS or FedEx as you're going to be looking at at least $50 if not twice that to ship internationally (just looked at FedEx - $135).
