    Went to Mybadmintonstore in Sheung Wan
    pleasant experience. :)
    Although the shop is small, it is really busy dealing with online bookings, I went to buy a Voltric 80, I wanted to get a 4UG4 version but they only VT-80 they had was a 3UG5 version but beggars can't be choosers... I also got the grommets (strip and U-shaped) for the VT-80... All in all it was good! :)

    Yes bro...most of the things are cheaper and a bit cheaper....shops like Kin Yee, ESL and Rose Sports along Fa Yuen Street are competitive in their prices and their products differ in all such places...the whole chain of Wan Kee sport stores will not allow bargaining but their prices may be mind blowing...look for the INS Salon store and you will find a 2nd floor of Wan Kee's racket chain of shops...the price is also good....across the street is also the Kimoni sports store....their Li Ning rackets are superbly cheap and affordable...

    I just got back from HK just now...with my wife....I spent about a $1000 SGD on badminton stuff for myself, wife and my khakis...I bought 4 rackets, 10 grip wraps, 1 racket bag, about 6 cloth bags, 4 tops for my wife, 6 shorts for myself and wife and lots of other stuff...

    My best shopping experience is to go to Mr Chan of e78.com...I went all the way to Sheung Hei Street to find him. Although he was not that good in spoken English, he took the liberty to communicate through his Ipad where I type all the words and he read then translated in Cantonese...there was no problem even I was a Malay. He was fine, cool and gave me lots of discounts..Spent about $4860 HKD alone at his place...

    My Hong Kong holiday was badminton paradise for me....It was SHIOK arghhhhh... if you guys need any information about the shops in HK...let me know and I can share my experience.....=)

    Badminton shopping in HK is dangerous.

    If you can find Kin Yee Sports Shop...You can see the INS Salon poster...go up to the 1F floor that means 2nd floor in HK. Then you will find the Wan Kee racquet shop...the price is better..=)
