    Can anyone tell me if Yonex do a large holdall with wheels and an extendable handle (like a tour travel bag), everyone I ask about it thinks I'm mad but I'm sure I have seen one. :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Here is a link to a picture of the wilson version but I would like the Yonex one :eek:

    i don't think yonex makes any one with wheels and stuff... that wilson bag is a beast.

    here are some you might be interested in seeing, yonex is at the bottom.
    but none of these have the crazy travel provisions.

    Dill: no, Yonex does not make a roller bag but they have some big bags that can carry a lot of stuff.

    The Pro Series 2400 is what I have, it's 30x12.5x12.5

    If you need bigger, the Pro Series 2400 (32.5"x14"x14"):

    I already have the bigger version (2224-9) than that picture and I think the holdall is a bit small and the quality is very poor.

    i too wonder about the larger bag. it will be convenient to be able to put all my badminton stuff in there.

    but then i started looking into my current bag, and i found all the weeks/months old water bottle, 1/2 pieces of powerbar, old and worn grip tapes and all the shuttle caps. i cannot imagine if the bag were to be 2-3x larger! :eek: ;)

    I just think it would be a bit more of a convenient way to take gear to tourneys without having to carry a massive big bag, especially on the last day when you have checked out and need somewhere to store all your gear.

    Anyone got links to this years Yonex bag range in their full 2005-2006 catalogue?

    I'd buy the Wilson bag, once you go rollers... you'll never go back!

    Yonex sell a big bag in Japan with wheels. It's like the bag in the 2nd yonex picture in this thread except with wheels.

    Also Babolat make a bag with wheels which I think is nicer than the Yonex one

    if you want to travel (to your local badminton gym or overseas) in style, i saw this bag in a local dept store the other day. the first reaction i had was, "what a perfect and stylish bag for badminton...."

    shaped perfect to put badminton rackets in it as well as light and bullet proof.

    it is a Tumi for those who knows...

    but the price tag? US$495 !
