    Wilson KBlade Tour in Europe is about 170 euros which equals to $263
    Kblade Tour in U.S. is about $189, that's only 122 euros, a difference of almost 50 euros!

    Sounds like a bargain!

    You are wrong F1 tech.
    with this 122 euros, you have to put the customs taxes (VAT + anti-dumping) that exists in Europe and the shipping costs.
    So in my country is about 43 euros of customs taxes, if you apply the shipping costs, i are losing money from get it from USA.
