Spokes in Oz

Does anyone have a lead on reasonably priced spokes in Australia? After DT Competitions or Sapim Race but at nearly $3 a spoke from MTBD with brass nipples (plus have to buy 80 as they only come in packs of 20) it becomes an expensive exercise.

Was even quoted $7 a spoke by an unnamed local bike store (!).

Ze Germans are much more reasonable but I’m wary of long wait times and expensive shipping.

Even with the shipping, they are still half the price.

The wait is the only bit that gives me the shits.

My new rims will be here in the next few days, will be putting through a German order for DT Aerocomps when I measure the ERD.

I used https://www.spokesfromryan.com/ and had my delivery in under 3 weeks during COVID last year. Have heard others had long waits and poor service, but that was not my experience. Prices are tops.
I've had long waits but not poor service. Pete has always been friendly and helpful if I send a query. Sometimes it takes him a couple of days to respond, but I believe he is flat out a lot of the time.
