    I found this website: http://byasia.com/ which has really good prices for almost all the rackets that they have. I was wondering wether or not his dealer is a legit authorized yonex dealer and if anyone here has bought a racket from them.

    I have already tried to email them an they responded with:
    "Hi
    Thank you for your interest in our products.
    We guarantee that our products are genuine Yonex rackets for US market. (US Version)


    ByAsia Support"

    Thanks!

    would you deal with some generic badminton website that has zero info on where they are located?

    guarantee means nothing when you cannot contact them.

    i would totally stay away.

    IMO, it looks fishy
    why do they only sell very little amount of rackets?
    if they are specialised in Yonex racket, they should have full range of it
    yet they only have 2 rackets from armortec range (AT900T, and AT70MG..)

    I checked it, and they are not Yonex authorised dealer
    better safe than sorry

    it looks like they are located in the east coast as they mentioned EST shipping time.

    however, they didn't list an address. which probably means they are not associated with a physical store.

    in the US, in order to sell USA Yonex authorized rackets they must have a physical store. which probably means this place side import from Asia and you won't get USA Yonex warranty.

    http://www.yonexusa.com/retail.cfm

    p
    ut:
    91731 on the zip code
    or put el monte and CA in city and states
    what you get is:


    so yeah, there is no byasia.com..
    I do check their website domain and it seems the domain is from USA..

    I prob will not buy from this place even if the racquet is US coded. You still might not get a warranty from Yonex USA. It is not an Yonex Authorized dealer.

    At the posted address also is the LA Badminton Club. So I guess if you ask them if they know about this shop you can be sure whether this shop is legit or not.
