    All the ones i can think of are still selling iso mf and vf series. No low end Ti nor MP racquets.

    hey...well my local National Sports dealer carries MP33, MP27 and other racquets. I have seen rare occasions where Sportchek has an MP55 or Ti-3.

    p.s. National Sports at Yonge and Sheppard *across from Sheppard Center*

    Sportcheks around the lower mainland carry some MP24s and 27s on their racks for under or around CAN$100. However, I actually spotted some MP77s in Richmond Center's Sportchek once. Probably the highest they go on the MP series. One would more likely find higher end Carlton than Yonex stuff:(.

    Yeah, seems that particular Sportchek has more baddy playing clientele. Its inventory reflects the demand. I won't be surprise if they stock MP99s and the AT series.

    Way back in my college days (7 yrs ago?), I did saw an ISO racket (600?) in a local sports store. Consider they normally only carrying $20- racket, that could be a rare case. :eek:
