    Does anyone know anything about Fleet(Yehlex) (I think they are the same?)?

    Do they have a website?
    Do they manufacture themselved or brand from others?
    Do they manufacture for other brands
    Are they in anyway linked to Winex?

    Etc, etc, etc,

    Thanks to anyone that does know answers to any of the above.

    It did have web site

    www.yehlex.demon.co.uk

    Unfortunately, the site is dead.
    You can order the brochure from

    fleet@yehlex.demon.co.uk

    Then you will get an idea of your questions
    from there.

    I have 2 Fleet rackets. Well not really, but i have 1 thats very similar to the Yonex Ti-7. Just thought i'd say so. Some of their rackets are copies of Yonex rackets and some are their own designs...... I'm gonna check their website, never knew they had 1. Thanx Sum!

    Actually they only copy the look of Yonex, but not the feel. I recently saw a new model from Fleet which copies the design of MP-100. While the racquet looks very similar to Yonex MP-100, it has completely different feel when I held it on hand (it also does not have Muscle Power frame).

    Just thought i'd say, instead of putting Muscle Power Frame like Yonex or the SBP clones or like Mighty Power Frame from Winex, they just put High Modulus Graphite instead. The feel is different. But even for rackets of the same weight? I've only tried the Yonex Ti-7 copy called the Fleet Ti-99 3U version. I thought it felt different because of the weight.

    You say Fleet feels different. Different to Winex aswell?

    I heard a rumor that Fleet makes rackets for Winex. Any know if this is true? Or are Winex a seperate manufacturer?

    Cheers

    If you ask me, its total rubbish. I was told that Fleet made rackets for Yonex as well. Winex, is a company that makes rackets that are clones of Yonex rackets and a few of their own design. Fleet is a company that does the same except they are much less recognized. Probably because their rackets aren't very durable and their quality is lousy.
