    I know. Rebel is pretty good for clothing at the moment, but rackets and stuff?

    300 bucks for a YY NS9000S anyone? :eek:

    I had rackets EMS'd to me from Thailand (mybadlookbad) to Melbs it took only 3 days. Regular post would be around 5-7. Don't see why it should take any longer than that from HK.

    e78 in Hong Kong has them, as does Maxsports in Canada.

    I know there are more but I've forgotten.

    There doesn't appear to be a US distributor for Babolat's badminton racquets so your choices are Canada or Asia. I believe that Tenniszon.com in Canada is cheaper than Maxsports but I think that e78 has the best price.

    Tennison wants a lot for the shipping, but if it was just going to the US then it should be pretty reasonable.

    According to the spec. sheet, the suggested tension is 20-25lbs. I think it can sustain up to 30lbs without any problems.

    My x-feel power is on 26lbs, no issues. It seems capable of higher tension than that.

    I like the x-feel power alot, it may not be the most offensive or most defensive but it has a nice solid feel.

    @huangxl
    where did u get it from?

    I have got my x-feel power from e78. I strung it with Babolat Hyperbraid Micro (0.67mm) at 24lbs. I was stupid that I didn't request for Babolat Hyperbraid (0.7mm) or Hyperbraid Hi-life (0.72) string (not sure whether they have it in stock). I have only tried to hit the shuttlecock a few times at home. The sound is very nice when you hit the sweet spot. Otherwise, the sound is strange. I look forward to trying it in badminton courts.
