Welcome to our new website!

This website is the 3rd edition of our online shop since operations started in 2002!  We have incorporated some of the latest technological advancements, security features and payment options.

Customers residing in Singapoe will find the Paynow option using mobile applications to be convenient, safe and fast. International customers will still get to use PayPal as a payment option, albeit with a 2% service fee to partialy offset high business cost of PayPal transactions. However we encourage you to select our default payment option using HITPAY/STRIPE platform, which handles various credit cards such as VISA, MasterCard, AMEX and e-wallets such as G-Pay. STRIPE is the payment gateway of Amazon, so you can rest assured that your online transactions will be safe and secure.

With the rise in global e-commerce transactions, logistics companies are now able to offer lower rates for international bulk shipping. Our system uses affordable shipping fees from selected service providers to ensure your orders reach you safely and swiftly. You will see shipping fee calculated before order checkout.

User tips and technical advice on a range of products can be obtained from our Blog section. These can be general information about optics or outdoor gear. Or detailed information which may not fit into a standard product listing due to space constraints but nevertheless helpful to users.

Feel free to click any of our chat buttons to seek quick advice and product details from our staff. We strive to reply as soon as possible.

We welcome your suggestions on how to make this website easier to navigate. 🙂
