    Not really familiar with Babolat... Which is the equivalent/similar to AT900T/Arc10/MP99? I'm quite curious to know...

    And where can I get some of them?

    I'd really like to try Babolat. Tennis racket are good. I hope same goes for Badminton. Too many fake makes me ditch Yonex. I'm on Victor now.

    Babolat rackets are very popular in france. Many friends of mine are using them, and they're really good. They're mostly doing good overall and attacking racket.

    Wow Babolat is really trying to drive Yonex users to their brand.

    *and apparently, i found on e78.com.hk they have babolat racquets already :S so does it mean it's for 2009 ??

    I couldn't find any Babolat badminton rackets in Malaysia.
    I've called Malaysia's distributor but still unsure whether they want to import the racket or not.
    I m so interested in Satellite and X series rackets...

    just tried out the blast and power
    its just lacks the control and feel of the shuttle
    but this is one POWER RACKET
    i think next time i need to string it at a higher tension in order to get better feel from it

    I've just recently bought a Satelite Star (you can read about it on my thread).
    Which one would be the equivalant to th Star? How do the X-Feel series compare to the Satelite models? Are these suppose to be the new "high end" racquets from babolat? Do they use the same technology as the Satelites?
    Sorry for so many questions. haha!

    shuttle-house already have it. But because of the Yen to strong right now, will be too expensive to buy from them.

    I've emailed to mybadlookbad.com, they said they will have x feel's series in a month time
