    Will there be different currencies? Because looking at the sneak peak, only euros is available. TWE will be very popular in the UK, so any chance of prices in GBP aswell?

    Thanks

    We will only being business in euros - at least for the time being. We are looking into ways to show the estimated conversion conversion with real time exchange rates but it would only be as a reference...ultimately the conversion and therefore the rate, would be set by your bank or credit card company.

    Thanks,

    erm mate i wouldnt's pay £185 for the k90 when i got mine for £152 custom strung. i think you should use the GBP aswell but make it a proper reasonable price for things like the k90 which are sold here in the uk for £135.99 - £145.99(not strung) nothing more nothing less. and with the GBP hitting a record low against the euro and probably the dollar i would think people in the uk would just buy things from uk shops as it would be alot more cheaper. thanks for reading and i hope you find a way and making the prices reasonable. cheers.

    TW, when i was looking at an item, it said next to the price, 'Convert to GBP'. Was this just to see how much it is, or can we pay with GBP?

    Thanks.

    i converted the prices of the k90 and the kps88 and k90 is £176 and afew pennies and the kps 88 is £180.91. i wouldnt mind paying that for a racket that isnt yet in europe but i can get the k90 unstrung for cheaper.but your string prices are reasonable. your trainers aren't that reasonable the lowest i've seen the 1.3 ballistics was £80 but on TWE its £91.77. i know if you lower your prices your probabley going to loose out on money but loosing £12 won't make much a difference would it??

    I wouldn't buy a kblade 98 for £152. Because currencies are so weak at the moment it will be cheaper to buy from UK stores ATM.
    But when The economy gets better i will be buying for Tw EU

    I dont think the euro will end up where it was to the £ for a long time.I looked at the K90 on the euro site and with string aand tax (why does it ask me which country i am in for tax/vat?Isnt it based onthe point of sale in europe?)it came to 220 euros I can get them strung for £130 here in the UK.
    FRom my look round i havent seen the bargains i was hoping for, also notice a few of their racquets are different, seem to be missing some ranges to what they sell in the US.
