    I am from the UK and if i were to buy strings from abroad, would the low temperatures on the trip over damage the strings in any way ?

    ??? Is this a serious question? Your strings would not change a bit

    I used to order Natural Gut directly from Bow Brand (back when the dollar was worth something). I never had any problems.

    if they are un-strung, and are just packs/reels, it should be fine. if you're ordering a pre-strung racquet, there might be some problems.

    Thanks mclovin and tennisfreak15347 for your replies. Good advice about getting them sent unstrung. Lets hope i don't get taxed to heavily by customs !!
