l i a m, I second that, the price really is way over! Think about it, if I know LN gets their supply from Yonex and their Tech from GOSEN while manufactured in Kason factory, why would I even bother to shell that money for basically a Kason/GOSEN/YONEX racket since they are already cheaper? Cut the middleman. Go direct to YONEX or GOSEN! MetalOrange.
