Hi, for Christmas this year I am ordering some stuff from some random websites:

1. cube4you (please don't kill me! XP)
2. 9spuzzles.com
3. Puzzle Master Incorporated (www.puzzlemaster.ca)

I need the following info:
1. shipping time/price (for puzzlemaster; I already have an idea what shipping from China will be)
2. is the Maru FTO any good? Does it compare to a rubik-brand 3x3x3 (playable) or an unmodded Chinaminx?
3. are these websites reliable?

Thanks ahead of time!
PS if your wondering, I am ordering the 2-pack 3x3x4 and a mini-diansheng from c4y, a master magic and a FTO from 9spuzzles and a Flower (globall thing) from Puzzle Master. Therefore I am not getting any KO's (for once I feel good and clean! XD)

I have nothing but great things to say about www.puzzlemaster.ca I've spent way too much money there. I met the owner at an IPP and he is an extremely generous guy.

Hi,
sorry, but I can't seem to order from puzzlemaster.ca. When my mom uses the credit card, it says: 'declined: unable to charge' or something like that. Can someone explain this problem? (it might be the credit card it self, i dunno, because I just ordered from c4y a second before that and nothing was wrong.)
Help!

c4y also has www.cubeforyou.com which are both great sites, I've never had any issues with either. (don't ask why they have both domains :/ )

9spuzzles.com is a great site also - no problems there

puzzlemaster.ca I've never tried so I can't vouch for them
