    Rose's Sports in Mong Kok, not sure where the place is exactly but I got my SHB 85 - LTDs there for a cheap price, but that was during the summer!

    I was at e78 about a week ago and saw $85 on the price sticker for BG68Ti - didn't pay attention for other strings.

    Hint: In my experience at other places it is possible to be offered a lower price when you buy other goods at the same time or after becoming a long term customer. Even from those tough shops in MK.

    i agree, ESL is chepaer than rose. but puppysports is cheaper than ESL. price tagged is in wholesale so they don't give discounts.

    I agree, when I went to Hong Kong my uncle who lives there recommended Rose to me. Much to my disappointment, one man who was in the shop only glared at me and didn't say a word :confused:. I didn't find the others working there to be very friendly either.

    Next time I go back to HK, I'll have to stop by e78! My experience with buying from them online so far has been great.

    For me, they (Rose) are friendly especially a girl around 30 years old, she was so nice and keep showing some new release rackets to me ( may be because i can speak in Cantonese). End up bought a GR coded 8DX.
    More than 1 hour later, i went back to Rose again after i bought some 2U Ti-10 from Insky Sport Co. The girl told me that she can offer better price than Insky Sport Co. I will go back to Rose & Insky Sport Co. again if i going to Mongkok. :)

    Insky Sport Co. is just located near to
    puppysports ( may be in the same building). Basement of Richmond Shopping Centre. The lady boss is very friendly.

    thanks BlueTornado

    it is rather expensive since we can find it in finland for just €152 about 1,480 hkd... 400 bucks cheaper... any other cheaper place perhaps? or maybe HK is not cheaper... =(

    €152 for a JP coded Z Force - that's going to be hard to beat.

    If you can get a JP code in Finland for 152 euro (why is JP sold there?) then I agree with tpcml, you will be hard pressed to find a lower price than that.

    Maybe you didn't think that through beforehand :p ... JP will be Japanese priced even in Hong Kong. It is not a bad price actually ($1850), hard to beat. Will assume 152 euro is for local code, if not and JP coded then it is sure to be fake.
