    need to correct myself, I just went to queensway this afternoon, and saw it at all major stores. RRP is $162.50 before discount. so around $130 damage to the pockets

    wocdam, how do you find the shoes? Are they well cushioned? How do they compare to say Yonex shoes? Thanks.

    PS. Wish the Gel Blade is available in Singapore.....

    me too, waiting the gel blade.:eek:

    the tactics is so expensive. I have tried the rocket (JB only selling at RM200-00) but the forefoot area room space is lack of comfort. sigh.....

    cushioning in the forefoot and heel are good, but the one i bought comes in E width. if got 2E width will be better. in general, asic shoes are not that wide at forefoot area. i don't own any yonex shoes, so can't compare

    hmm i don't think singapore shops will bring in gel blade? don't think there is enough market for the really high-end shoes. best option is to ship from other countries, though I haven't found an online shop which has reasonable shipping prices.
