    There are alot of companies that make similar racquets to the iso 800 you should pm winex west can. Winex has a similar racquet in the SQ800 and um.. they also have the Titanium version of that racquet as well. It isn't identical to the iso 800 but who knows it maybe more suitable for you. I'm also trying to get a hold of the iso 800 to see what the hype is about. Well hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    Nick

    Hi Sidesurfer,

    You are right, Emmy Sports has stock on YY Iso 800 Tour. Emmy Sports has both SP and TW versions, whereas SP of new YY logo and TW of old one.

    Nevertheless, the price is high, something like HK$9xx, mainly due to scarcity of Iso 800 nowadays.

    Personally, I prefer the old logo YY Iso 800 Tour, regardless of either SP, CN or TW versions.

    New logo Iso 800 (SP) is lighter and more flexible. I find the solid feel of new logo Iso 800 not as good as the old one.

    Besides, new logo Iso 800 is not as durable as the old one. New logo Iso 800 has the problem that under high stringing tenson, even at 23 lbs, the strings will cut into the carbon layers between the grommets. This is the comment from some profound stringers I gathered before.

    In my opinion, if one is looking for Iso 800, one should choose old logo, if possible. Besides, MP55 is also a good substitute for Iso 800, though MP55 is a bit head heavy and of box-frame design.

    To me, HK$9xx for a badminton racket is a bit exorbitant, instead, I would choose Ti-10 as it cost around HK$700 now. I believe even SP version Ti-10 carbon material is harder than Iso 800's.

    I hope my tiny opinion will be of some value to those Iso 800 fans.
