Re: Zipflex

Hi Steve - sorry about delay - didn't look for reply!

My AU$239 got me for 5 pieces 380mm long: 3 x .079 wide strips (pearl, two types of abalone) and 2 x .047 abalone. All beautifully packaged in plastic carry tubes!

Postage was high for such a small order.

cheers

Re: Zipflex

Hi John I have also been looking for Zipflex, no luck in Aus, and couldn't see a dealer for Canada. EU site will also not ship to Aus. So I suspect I will buy in the US and use a 3rd party address. I would love to talk to you about Ukes and maybe coming to the Albany meetings - I will follow up soon...
