    I will be grateful if players in Singapore could recommand addresses of badminton shops in Singapore, in which I can get ti10 around $150.

    For $160 you can go to Bras Basah Complex, Ranking Sports on the 3rd floor.

    Here's what I know off hand:

    mp 100 - SG$165
    mp 77 - SG$165
    iso ti swing power - SG$160
    iso swing power 900 -No hope ... hard to find!
    ti 10 - SG$145
    ti8 -SG$ 135 ( maybe less )
    ti7 - ??
    iso 600 - SG$79 with BG-66 strings thrown in

    You can go to Bras Basah ( Pronounced 'Brazz Ber-sa' ) Complex.

    Music Room on the ground floor, Zenith Sports and Ranking Sports on the 3rd storey. For the latter 2, you may need to bargain a little. The first shop has the prices labelled already, no bargaining entertained.

    Thanks ! Gladius
    According to the prices you quoted, the prices in Singapore are lower
    than Hong Kong.
    No need to buy rackets in H..K. for foreigners.

    No problem ! The shops are quite ok, just note that the stringing done in Ranking Sports is pretty sucky ... !

    Re: No!

    Are their rackets pre-strung? If they are 'sucks', I will buy them without string and do them myself.

    Your guys are really helpful.

    The stringing at IT @ Work seems quite good. The stringing at Music Book Room is good

    Re: No!

    Yes, Music Room's stringing is quite good. Tension is pretty even and holds well after breaking in the strings. Just that they do not put enough wax at stringing like Kemin does and strings wear in a little before even breaking in !

    But not bad at all a place to string.

    I am back with two MP100SP rackets for SG$170 each, thanks for the pointers from everyone.

    $170??
    Hmmm... how do I say this?
    "You wuz robbed of $10!", unless they include stringing, of course.

    You can definately get them slightly cheaper than that!!
    Anyway, I thought you were getting a Ti-10??

    Changed my mind at last minute. I intended to get another ti10 as a spare, but couldn't resist the temptation of trying out the MP100. I managed to find MP100 at the 4th shop I visited. I guess S$170 isn't the best price. Not very surprising since I am a non-local buyer.

    Have strung my new MP100 with BG66 at 22-24 lbs. I felt that mp100 is considerably less head-heavy than ti10. Of course, need time to have a real taste.

    Cheers!

    I see!
    I'm curious, which shop did you purchase your racket from?
    And which shop did you got your racket strung at?
