Sorry for the big delay guys, I see some of you guys needs some answers regarding caca-zan gloves.
Well, first of all like my buddy Mike909 said, Buzz's Room gloves are $165 USD a pair shipped to US, not sure about international. Believe a Run is due in July but keep on checking his facebook page for more details:
Now about Caca-Zan.net here is the quick review I made: all the way to the end
Aspects and looks:
They are prety much the same as Buzz Gloves, Buzz's are made of sheep leather while the ones I got from caca-zan where made of cow leather or at least that what I understand from the mark beside the cow image on the little booklet that came with my gloves. They have the sentai crest on top and the tag says Made in Japan.
I placed my order via email since I dodn't understand Japanese and couldn't use the ordering chart. But you guys are lucky, if you are in you're house computer (PC or Laptop) you can access caca-zan page using Google Chrome and it will translate the whole page for you.
Here's what the email replay said,
Model: SE-002 (short gloves)
Size: Large (that's the size I ordered from Buzz and Aniki)
Price: 9,450 JPY (the Yen is currently about the same as the USD) so about $93.4 dollars
Shipping cost: 2,000 JPY- about $20 USD
Grand Total: 11,450 JPY - about $113.00
But with Paypal fees for the conversion I end up paying about $121.31 USD still about $43.69 to $45 dollars cheaper than Buzz. Remember this was for the short gauntlet gloves shipped to Puerto Rico.
Feel and fitting:
They are very confortable althought a bit loose than Buzz that are a great fit, but again I have the long gauntlet from Buzz and from Caca-zan the Short gauntlet gloves, not sure if that makes a difference.
About the size chart:
I'm not home atm so I can't use chrome but if someone can please help me here. Hopefully I'm correct. What I can see from the chart here: http://www.caca-zan.net/size/
You need to measure from the tip of your midle finger to the bottom of your palm(look for this symbol on the diagram 手長
) If I'm correct that's the top row measurments and the top pic of the hand and measuring tape. Mine is about 18.5 cm so I guess a 19 cm will do. Tha's size M
The one in the midle is around the palm of your hand. (look for this symbol 掌回り
) and the photo with the measuring tape around the palm. Mine is 22 cm so is a L
Now for the last one I'm not sure but from looking at the pic I guess is measuring only the lengh of your midle finger. Mine is 8 cm on the last chart that's a M
I placed my order June 11, 2013. The shipping timetable or the time the item was to be shipped was June 17, 2013. I picked up the package from the Post Office on June 29, 2013 but I guess it arrived around June 25, 2013 so thats about a week and a half to 2 weeks total from ordering to receiving the gloves. Only thing I didn't like about shipping was that I never receive the tracking number, not even through paypal. But that doesn't mean is going to be the same case for everyone who orders from them.
Customer servive was great, they replay to my email withing minutes of my inquiry and helped me with the order. The representative was very honest and mention he doesn't speak too much english but was glad and willing to help me.
Hope this help anyone who whishes to order from www.caca-zan.net
If you have more questions please let me know and I'll do my best to help. Later I'll post pics of my caca-zan gloves next to my Buzz gloves.
