    Yes, you can find true love for FREE.

    If you re-call from my previous post, my Yonex MP-99 (2u) just will not part with me - it is like . . . Fatal Attraction?!?!?

    So guys and gals of this forum . . . and you will only see it on this forum (for now) . . . a BRAND NEW, UNSTRUNG, Yonex MP99 with original plastic still on the handle and a couple of minor paint chips - ALL THIS can be yours for FREE. (photos attached)







    However, shipping and handling to anywhere in Canada (even if you pick it up) will be a mere C$175 or US$130.

    2nd chip . . . gives racquet unique character

    You will know this racquet is yours if you buy it because it has two one of a kind paint chips that is not on most other racquets - more rare than a CP/CN racquet

    hm... if i recall correctly, the market price for a MP99 in HK is around HK$900. that comes to around US$115. and here you are selling a chipped one for US$130. this beauty of yours must be one of those "high cost" type.... :)

    Yeah, hk$900 is about right for a MP99 in HK except, this MP-99 is FREE - buyer only pays shipping and handling :)

    also, not everyone will buy a plane ticket to HK to pick-up a racquet, if some one will sell to me a MP99 3uSp for hk$900 landed in Canada, I will buy 5

    Look at what you are getting:

    one of a king MP99 > no one will have the same

    automatic theft-deterrent > they will steal someone else's first

    no waiting > shipping from Asia to North America takes a little while

    less paranoia > less afraid to clash racquets with other players

    finally a good laugh . . . and a good price

    Can you get all these benefits from buying a MP99 right here, right now?

    I really like to know who will be the LUCKY person to receive this FREE racket. I remember when I bought my Honda Odyseey in 1999. The dealer had a drawing to find out who can buy the 2 Odyseey in stock. I was one of the LUCKY guy ended up paying 3000 extra for those useless options, and every body in the dealership came to congratulate me. :(

    LazyBuddy,

    I sold MORE than 1 Cab20 SP on EBAY . . . Kwun would probably be shaking his head in disbelief . . . :)

    Problem is, every time I goto HK, I can't help but wonder into the badminton shops of Mongkok . . . racquets of all different models, strings of all different colours, shoes and bags that aren't available in North America, and really smooth sales people. When I leave the store, I usually spend about C$2000 - 3000.

    Other problem is, racquets in Canada are way too expensive. At the WinterClub in Calgary, they sell MP100s for C$280 (US$180), MP99s for C$270, Cab20MS for C$170 (US$110) plus tax on top of the price

    Now I understand why you'd want to sell yours for C$175 :) Here in Toronto I can easily get an MP-99 SP 2U strung with BG-85 or BG-68 Ti (or any less expensive string) for only $200 - $210 (depending on the buyer's haggling skill :)) I feel lucky to be living in the GTA (badminton-wise). Anyhow, good luck with your sale!
