Purchasing parts for DIY XLR cables from NZ

Hi There,
I'm wanting to learn and build a few of my on XLR cables. Have seen recommended Neutrik connectors and Mogami/Canare cables etc.
Have also seen most everyone goes to Redco. Only problem is I'm in New Zealand. Shipping from Redco to here seems expensive especially for a smaller quantity. There are very few places here that do these sorts of connectors and prices are high. So I'm looking for an alternative place that does these cables.

I kinda wish these were legit

Does anyone know a good place to purchase these cable parts from with reasonable international shipping or anyone in NZ / Oceania who has also done this? Might be something I'm missing

My current favorite XLR cable connectors are Amphenol and are made in Australia.
I buy them from Redco since I live here in North America.
But it says on the box: "Made in Australia"
Their website says they have 15 distributors in Australia and one in New Zealand.

Those things on Aliexpress are so cheap it might be worth buying just to investigate. I might do it myself.

Thanks for the recommendation - haven't heard of those guys so will definitely check them out. Haha yes I just might try those Ali ones too.

Any places for cable around here anyone know?
