    NEWS: Yonex-Japan will establish a flagship store in Taiwan. The estimate time is by the end of February. More news will be updated soon.

    (a store owner in TW told me this, and I believe this is 90%+ accurate)

    PS: Cab30MS (TW) should arrive by Q2, if not mistaken.

    Ya! I heard this news three months ago. This store will be in Taipei and sell the stuffs (including clothes, rackets, shoes) imported directly from Japan. So if someone
    want JP version rackets, you can get them in this store. About the price, I don't sure.

    The one I heard is in Taichung.

    Well, it's possible they will make more than one store (because that's Taiwan people's shopping nature).

    So, My guess is that, they will make one in North, Middle, and South, which are Taipei, Taichung, and Kaohsiung (probably, according to my hypothesis) :)

    Do you know where it is going to be? (I mean, the exact location and area)
    I hope it's in Shi-Lin area......it's much closer to where I live :)

    Yeah, I heard about they "probably" will adapt the whole line of Yonex JP products to Taiwan, and I am ready to break my piggy bank for the stuff I want.

    oh, don't forget to look at the country code :)

    and.....see if they bring any of the high end strings to Taiwan......BG-88Ti, 75Ti.....etc.

    Hi bluejeff & huijun,

    Are the Yonex flagship stores in Taichung and Taipei open yet? Do you have the addresses of these stores?

    The flagship store in Taichung has a web site. This one http://www.twsport.com.tw/default.asp . But I think they carry a lot of stuffs from Japan. The web site only lists small part of their productions. The BG-88 Ti and CBG-100 are definitely from Japan because you can't buy BG-88 Ti and CBG-100 from other store.... ;)

    how about the rackets? JP or TW

    Hi Huijun,
    I checked out the website you provided. I cannot find anything about the rackets? Huijun, Can you tell us whether the rackets are TW version or JP version? or should we call them to find out?
    Thank you in Advance!

    Taiwan areas means racquets are in TW codes, not JP.
