I sold an old fork on ebay yesterday to a guy in ontario for 20 bucks. Well I usually go UPS to everybody i ship to except canada becuase the buyer will be charged by customs so i go to the post office and i already had some custom forms filled out because most guys i sell to seem ot be in canada so i keep a few. Well damnit, the package weighed 4lbs and 10oz. So i got charged some fee and had to fill out a bunch of other forms. So a whole set of sparring gear weighing 3pounds 8oz, which is a MUCH larger box than the fork, cost me 11 dollars to ship. I believe that was british columbia too. Yet a fork weighing just over 4 lbs costed me 17. ANd the box is half the size .
