    Then pls report to the brand in charge, its no use just simply post message to few thread or even all thread telling people they are selling fake since you encounter all what you have written.

    It certainly looks like that or someone having a grudge. I even claimed warranty for Yonex shorts and got a new one after 2.5 months. A shop well known like AJ's will not take chances with fakes. They got too much to lose. I was there today lunch time and it was packed. Got 2 rackets stringed in 20mins. They have tons of unknown name strings now, quite cheap.

    Unknown - I have never heard of the brand name before. Did not check properly where they were made. I just choose the RM 20 bucks Fleet 66. Just as good as the Yonex BG66 but a lot cheaper.

    Guys,

    I just sms Mr. Jon Ling to check for the price for VT80 and VT80LTD and what surprise me was he told me he is letting go "at cost". I wonder how true is it. :rolleyes:

    no wonder they always saying best price is 30%..profit actually quite a lot.35% but giving 30% and earn the 5% its just too little already.

    Dealer margin are tiered based on volume - 35% is probably the starting stage :rolleyes:

    The best part, according to my friend (source) is that they actually make money NOT FROM RACQUETS per say, but from grips, shuttles and strings - he said, just add up how much you spend per year, and your jaws will drop !!! :eek:.... in case, you have not noticed, in Klang Valley, at least, the prices are ALMOST "FIXED" i.e. same-same in every shop ....


    Analogy: Just like buying LASER PRINTER, almost "free" giveaway but it is the laser cartridge that KILLS YOU !! :rolleyes:

    I dont think it is from Grips & Shuttles at least in AJ :-
    Karakal Grip is RM 6 bucks compared to RM 8++ elsewhere.
    Shuttles are usually RM 1 less than normal plus extra RM 0.50 discount per tube if you buy 5.

    Strings is where they really make money.

    Yes, I agree strings are where they make the money. Come to one of the stores in JB and you can see the stringers working non-stop. The racquets are sent from Singapore by the dozens. You can buy grips at RM4.00.
