New Yonex catalogue

Discussion in 'Badminton Rackets / Equipment' started by Johno, Mar 16, 2002.

    Just got a new Yonex brouche today, and yonex's new main racket is (as you all know) is the Muscle Power 88, the problem is that it doesn't say anything about the weight, stiffness of the racket and other infomation which we all like to talk about.
    Also the shop that the brouche is from is selling the racket for £120 in the UK and is selling off their Ti 10's cheap (by this i mean £80).
    This is apprently because Yonex are no longer making this racket anymore,
    there are mail order places in the UK which are also selling TI 10's for £60 each.
    And the yonex brouche hasn't got a picture of the Ti 10 in the TI range of rackets.

    I don't get why yonex would want to stop making the Ti 10

    Another thing that i noticed is that they (yonex) have changed the paint work on all the Ti rackets and the swing power rackets, but this makes the Ti 7 looks better, it looks more like the MP 77 now apart from with a blue shaft and sliverish frame at the top rather then a silver shaft and blue frame on the MP 77

    But Yonex seem to have some really nice stuff this year, there are a lot of the bags and shirts that were seen at the All England.
    But no price lists

    IF you look at the catalog from last year.
    The ti-7 is mad out of cheaper Graphite.
    it used to be Ultra HM for shaft and frame.
    now it's HM frame and Graphite shaft.

    I got mine from a shop in chester (cheshire) and it is really the only one in my are that sells the top of the line rackets and other yonex goods.

    As for getting a catalogue your self you could alway phone Yonex Uk, i'm guessin that your a registered BA of E member and so you get the ' Badminton ' magazine which has the number for yonex uk at the bottome of the Muscle Power advert,
    But if you haven't got the magazine the number is

    07000 96639 85 and then you have to quote B2001, although i'm guessing that you would have to quote B2002 to get the new catalogue

    Just a question for you Howard.
    How can you make the generalization that the Ti 7 really is made out of cheaper graphite?
    Let me guess, because it was written in Yonex's catalog?
    Ok, then answer this.
    Do you know anyone who owns the Ti7 light?
    Have you played with it yourself?
    I'm sure you know people who own the original ti7.
    What would you say, if I told you they are exactly the same racquet?
    What would you say, if I told you that I have played with both, and the original ti 7 as well as the new one? and told you that the stated material composition in the previous catalogs were incorrect??? and that the "new" stated composition is correct? without it coming from my mouth, but directly from the lion (Yonex) themselves.
    I dont think you've actually seen a 3u Ti-7, and I only know of one player that owns one, who attends a club I do on Sunday mornings. Also happened he was at a Yonex demonstration one night, and I took a look at the new equipment, but am reserving comment, as I see no point in spreading too much BS as I have before about goods. Rather this time wait, and actually buy the stuff before I speak.

    Remember, a while back I was discussing about the racquet lengths with some other guys?
    Well, I got my ti S from Asia compared to another one, that was used by a sponsored player, and would you believe it if I told you his was shorter?

    I think it's safe to say, that without actually playing with the new stuff, it's better not to start spreading stuff about newer equipment being "different" etc, etc.
    In anycase, I just thought you might want to see the flip side of the coin... it's actually a twin faced coin.

    I'M NOT SPREADING ANYHTHING!!. NO I HAVE NOT PLYED WITH THE NEW ONE.I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO THEN TO GO ACROSS TOWN JUST TO SEE IT.I WAS JUST PIONTING OUT THAT IS SAYS THAT IN THE CATALOG.
    IT COULD STILL PLAY THE SAME BUT WHOS KNOWS.SO IF YOUR COMING ON HERE JUST TO GIVE ME BS CAUSE OF A MISTPRINT YONEX CANADA MADE WELL THEN YOUR SOME KIND OF A FRIEND. i was only saying it was cheaper graphite.I'm not spread @!#$. I thought i would let every one know since the racket was made from ultraHM and now it states HM&GRAHPITE.I also went through the troble of e-mailing shops in US and canada and the have said that it is indeed made out of cheaper matieral.

    :lol:
    I cant believe you would take offense to that Howard.
    I guess you have to learn as well (what I already learned), my tone wasn't in a strict or critical tone at all.
    I was merely pointing out that it's better not to pass judgement on anything until people actually play with the goods.
    I didn't happen to state you were in error did I?
    I was just asking YOU questions, about what you know, or dont know.

    Better cool it there kiddo.

    -Kelvin
    PS: Yonex held demos around the city, and yes in your area as well, but I guess you missed out on it.

    Re: Re: New Yonex catalogue

    The last time I ordered one (a couple years ago) I just called and requested one from Yonex Canada. The number I have for them is (800) 661-9262.

    The catalogue's free if you pick it up at Yonex sponsored Tournies. In fact, I don't think it cost anything. Stores might only carry a few copies for their own references, so they might not distribute them at all.

    Anyone have a direct link to a official online Yonex Catologue for 2004? I want to see the specifications of the new racquets.
