Ha,well I was telling Marty yesterday I got a set of Flats to try too,but I didnt get the more expensive thomastiks in case I hate the feel and sound of flats after 20 years with rounds. :P
I only got what was on the shelf,some Fender Chrome Flats,put them on my Jazz but then the action was all poos,way to high, so its at a mates getting set up.Cant wait to get it back.
I was quite surprised when Marty estimated how old his strings were and how they get better with age !

They arrive within a week and if you buy three sets the shipping is still the same.

I have bought my strings from nowhere else but juststrings.com for over 10 years now and their service is superb and prices are excellent.
we bought a couple of sets of short scale rotosound tape wounds from them and it cost about 100 dollars in postage. Ouch.

Something's not right then. That is not the experience I have had.

Here's a copy of an order I have just placed

Note the postage is $US40 for FOUR sets of strings. At today's exchange rate of $NZ1.00 = $US 0.76, that works out to $NZ 52.00 - a far cry from your claim of $100.00 postage for two sets.
