    I am really surprised that Yonex USA still have such old stock or being able to get the old stuff. :eek:

    Yea, I got some Yonex string from SD Badminton Supply a while back (1-2 years?) that had the old logo. It was BG70 Pro; I guess its not that popular so they had lots back stock :) .

    anyway, I am not going to buy anything from San Diego any more because you don't really know what kind of staff they are going to send to you plus they have a very bad customer service. :mad:
    it is going to be a big hassle to return or exchange it

    Agreed. You're not the first person to complain about SD. I would not recommend them for anything.

    No problems yet :) . Yonex string seems to keep fine if it's stored properly in it's original sealed packaging (i.e. not too much heat/cold/sunlight). I have used string that has been stored for 3+ years and havn't had any problems with it. Cheers.
