    How much would it cost to send (a) racquet(s) to the philippines? The shipping calculator says $58.00 but are there other charges? (i.e. taxes, etc)

    WhereisMacMac,

    There are no U.S. taxes; however, you will be responsible for any additional customs handling fees, duties and/or taxes. Because each country is different, and these fees change often, we do not know these fees. Your local post/customs office can give you this information.

    Customs in the Philippines can be interesting. My son's mom sent my son some of his old clothes and some cookies. The customs officials wanted to make him pay the equivalent of $500US until they found out his girlfriend was politically connected.
    Don't know if this would be a problem with an item with an identified retail value, though.

    It is terrible that the OP has the purchase items internationally.
