"I have been buying gear from OPG for several years now and have been always impressed with their customer commitment. Not only is the gear top quality and well priced but their customer service even for a customer half a world away in Brisbane Australia is awesome. Only once has a product failed me and it was a fault of the manufacturer not OPG however Chris was quick to provide a fix free of charge.
I am very comfortable buying on-line from afar with OPG!"
