    Dunlop? Pretty cheap for that kind of budget. About 60-80 I think. Wore them for like 7 sessions of 3 hours so far. Still feels and looks new.

    my best advice: Get Yonex Ultima Series. There're few latest models that worth the money. Price is Rm80-100.

    i am not convinced with the ultima series >.< feels like it's a copy~ i tink i gonna try dunlop and c~ ( i always taught dunlop as a cheap brand =P) i tink the reason my sole went off so quickly is that i play 2 times a week ( 3hours each session ) and for 5months straight...the soles don't seem to do wad they suppose to do now =(

    If you think Ultima is copy, so do other brands that copy their design......
    Many beginner to intermediate players are using Ultima series & give a thumbs up.

    given you a pair of Rm80 shoe lasted 5 months, end up double the money in a year. RM160-200 could get Asics & Mizuno and they last you for 2-3 years with the same session you having now.

    Maintaining for low range like Line7, Kronos, Pronex, Dunlop etc, wouldnt do any good for your feet comfort & keeps on wearing out the shoe in short period.

    I suggest FLEET shoe which is about 70-80 ringgit. I have use LINE7 and DUNLOP before. My LINE7 only last 6 months and my DUNLOP only last 4 months. For your info, I play about 3 times per week during that time.
