    Hi all,
    I hope that I can share with all of you about my hobby.
    In my first post, I'd like to say "Hallo...!"

    There so many topics that we can share, discuss and solve.

    That's all for my first from Batam, Indonesia.

    If anybody wants to know about me, pls contact me at Khamidnms@yahoo.com

    Thank You.

    back in the 80's and earlier 90's when Badminton GrandPrix was introduced, ProKennex is the main sponsorship, so you can find this brand so easily in Indonesia, now very hard to find in Indonesia eventhough still famous in the US.

    Here in Singapore, besides Yonex, many players used brand Apacs, Fleet, ProAce coz these brands is can find easily in Singapore or Malaysia and price is cheap and also the quality of the rackets is OK.

    I have my ProKennex Carbonpro 727 which I bought in 1995 for Rp 150rb (during that time 1 US$ = Rp 2.5rb or approx. US$ 60) in Surabaya now even in Surabaya very hard to find ProKennex.

    Anyway, what is your recommended shop in Batam ? I wanna find the brand Astec (Alan-Susi Technology)

    Dear,
    Batam is small island. Actually, I feel that only Pro Kennex which really match with my playing type. I've tried many types of Yonex ; from Cab 8, Cab 9, Cab 21 until Cab 25 SP. But I can't play as I enjoy with Pro Kennex. 3 months ago I bought Wilson Hypercarbon 85 type (a black - red one), this racquet was light enough, but still not comfort.

    For an Aspec brand, pls wait untill i found one. But I have a friend in Batam came from Solo, Java ( his parents have a sport shop in Solo ), and He twice a month send packs of racquettes to Batam, and then distribute in this Town.
    I think if you want, I can ask him to bring what u need.


    Cheers,

    HB
