Has anyone in the US ordered from TT11 recently? Will the shipping be delayed a lot due to the pandemic? I am really hesitant to order anything from oversea at the moment, since the shipping might take a long time.

Last time I ordered in June, it arrive in 4 days. It really depends on when you order -- early in the week or late, so if you order before Tuesday, it probably will arrive Friday. Otherwise it will arrive early next week -- Mon. or Tues.

I ordered from them a couple of times recently and orders were fulfilled in good time.

But if you have any doubts you would probably be better of to actually send TT11 a message, I'm sure they'll respond and let you know if there are any issues.

Not quite correct! Japanese post doesn’t ship to the USA but you can have items shipped by DHL but that’s more expensive.

 Just received a Stiga  Legacy Carbon from them a few days ago. Shipping times were just as they always are to the US about 4 days.

how about shipping from china? I just modified the post to include shipping from all foreign countries. Shipping using postal office system might have problem atm, by DHL seems to work?

DHL seems to work ok, but if a vendor uses some other shipping method from China you may wait for months (in my experience).  Something I ordered in May (not TT related) arrived at the post office in Xiamen in May and proceeded to sit there for weeks and weeks.  I got it last week.  Something I ordered about the same time from another vendor was shipped by DHL, I got it in about ten days.

I shipped a package using standard mail (from US) to a friend in Australia back in March.  It took 3 months before she received the package.

TT11 ships everything via DHL.  I would think any express/overnight service should not be a problem.

the EJ virus is stronger than covid.

Recently, i just got fedex orders from japan both got here in days.  My order from UK within 2 weeks.  Order from spain within 2 weeks; from hong kong a month ( i think seller was slow in mailing rubbers)  and tabletennis11 no issues

My only issue was a blade from czech republic, it tool 2 months, and once it left czech replblic i could not track it in US.

tabletennis11 less than a week, 100% reliable.
princett.com was 2 to 2.5 months (surface mail) but now they are shipping the normal way again but not to Austin, see their web site. I always got my orders fulfilled and get additional 2 months of anticipation with it for free.
Also it looks like Yinhe has every combination of wood and carbon layers in a blade so you can run full factorial experiments if you order enough blades.

i had parcels coming from all over and if you use fedex or DHL, the delay is more  on the customs.
