There is a shop selling Yonex racket at Quuensway shopping Centre. 1st Floor. I forgot the name of the shop but It is a short distance from Sports Interlink.

For Yonex rackets, do know that some of the rackets parts are made in japan but assembled in Taiwan and some are direct from Japan. Of course, the price you depend on the type of racket you need. You would need to know which style of play you adopt - rally? smash? net shot? etc.. Btw, I doubt it is easy to look for Carbonex 8 or 15 nowadays.

Nowadays shuttlecock price also has increased. A tube can cost about $25 to $30. Yonex AS4 or 40 with speed 3 should be ok. Or you can try Protech with speed equivalent of 77.

thanks for the info guys. amazing prices shot up so much. i was into it pretty much 3-4 years ago, and then yonex shuttlecocks were going for $18-20 each tube. even then, its pretty ex for me. after all the feathers come off fast anyway.

one thing good is i have my trusty carbonex something something still, restringed too. prices gone up everywhere hmmm.

i found some scocks going for $15-17 each tube, so may check it out.

yeah will sms Eng Han see what he has.... smile.gif

For re-string, I think the GP-66(can't remember the exact model name) is about $16 or so.

I think you are referring to BG 66.

Should cost around $14 to restring only.
