OMG! A company charged for shipping!!!
Model 1 tells you they will charge for shipping. I have a martial arts supplier that does the same thing.
Model 1 does not overcharge for shipping - their rates are very similar to others that sell comparably sized items.
ONLY difference I see here is that some (not all) companies tell you exactly how much they will charge for shipping. Model 1 does not.
There are many reasons not to indicate exactly how much for shipping (varying rates, updating websites, etc.).
I suggest that if $13 shipping freaks you out this much, then you probably couldn't really afford the item in the first place.
I was more freaked out by the fraudulent cc charges after my first (and last) order with Model 1.
