    Yes, it's because of SUNRISE. They've got LCW;) that's why they can rise up the price;)

    it is not sudden boss ...
    one shop owner at Kemaman, Terengganu has told me back in Feb 2011 for the price increasing ....
    you are still so lucky .... I've bought the BG-80 string only for RM 33 already (RM 38 if with stringing services)

    In Singapore, NBG98 is S$15.00, BG66UM is S$14.00 & BG66 is S$13.00.

    NBG98 & BG66UM is cheaper in Singapore, while BG66 is cheaper in Malaysia.

    Interesting...

    actually, the NBG98, BG66UM, CBG100 prices are average of all shops in Kota Bharu area...
    it's depends on the shop which selling with different prices. As example, BG66UM just rm40 in MYSPORTS STORE including stringing services.

    BG66UM (include stringing service) @ rm40 is still more expensive.

    In Singapore, BG66UM is S$14.00 only including string & labour.

    But your normal BG66 is alright though.
