    thinking about going back to china next year and buying a new raquet.
    1)aroudn how much are the armortecs/mp racquets (range)
    2)should you go to a big sports retailer to buy the racquets to avoid fakes?

    Cooler is right. I was in Beijing 2 weeks ago. I went to Eastern Plaza (where my hotel is located), and the listing price of AT700 and 800 are 2100 Chinese dollars which is about over 250 US dollars :eek: Then on the way back from forbidden city, I found another store in a lower level area selling AT700 and 800 for about 1300 Chinese dollar, still over 150 US dollars. Look like people in Beijing are rich.

    If you're in Beijing, you should try the New Bluesky Shop (bbesports). They're located right across from the Beijing zoo, their shop isn't too big though so you might have to search for it around there, but their prices aren't too bad. Good luck on your search.

    Use www.bbesports.com or www.bbeshop.com for price guide. Both of are reputable dealers with decent prices. If you make more than RMB$1000 (US$125) purchase, you auto. qualify for their member price. ;)

    You don't have to buy anything to be qualified for the member price.
