    The prices are not so low that they are obviously fake, but just low enough to warrant a double-take, and maybe a triple one at that. If it IS, sounds like I found somewhere to finally try an LN racket

    Well e78 is certainly legit, so if this is the case, there should be no worries, right?

    i havent bought from them yet, but when you want to pay via paypal, the ID that they provide is the same ID as e78, so i suppose it is legit.

    with that being said, you could just buy from e78 haha.

    well it seems like there're some typo errors in their prices' database. yesterday i noticed that the Kason TSF300Ti was going for HK$490, today its at HK$1200. fortunately i emailed them to confirm beforehand, and they're fast in their replies too. they're the same shop as e78, so shouldnt have any worries buying from them.

    yes, the owner is quick to respond too. i've bought rackets from them on a number of occasions when i was still living in toronto. good prices and he usually ships them out quick as well.

    It's too bad they don't have the TC700 in 2U. I can't seem to find it anywhere besides badmintonshoponline.us

    I just ordered a racket from here. It was either going to be from here or badmintonshoponline.us. Badmintonshop would have been slightly cheaper with a free grip, but after reading about their supposed smear tactics I decided to get it from here instead.

    They are quick to respond to emails and got my racket strung and out to ship very quickly. It just left Hong Kong but I'm predicting the shipping speed will slow down in the U.S. since it's the holiday. Now that I'm done with my final exams, I can go home and anxiously wait for this to come in :)
