    Dear KWUN,

    How lovely are they? Where I can buy it? Do you know where the Carlton made from?

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    Optimetric seems to be about the same maximum width as isometric but then tapers to a slightly narrower frame at the tip of the rackets. Isometric increases the size of the sweet spot supposedly. This means off centre shots still have power. I personally can't feel much difference, maybe because when I miss the shuttle it comes off the frame... All of nothing!

    I'm replying to the poster previous, just like I am now.

    The dude asked for the specs, so I showed him. It's amazing what you can find when you have a look ON THE OTHER PAGES OF A THREAD.

    according to Carlton, the Vapour Trail will only be available in Europe and America. it maybe available in Asia in the future, but for the time being it won't be.

    Asia will continue to have different product lines than other parts of the world.

    sorry for the bad news. i will post a review once i finish testing them...

    I am starting to wonder that they are different companies. Maybe someone bought the right of Carlton in Asia. Carlton Europe is definitely run by the Sports Direct Plc.

    That's possible.

    Anyway, so what if it's just available in Europe/UK. Just buy it there! Heck, the rest of the world buys their other brands mail order from SE Asia....you'll just be doing the opposite.

    Welcome to our world!

    something like that. the Carlton rights in Asia was licensed out to another party. that's why they have different lines.

    Isnt it only fair that we non-asians sometimes get special treatment as well.. Usually the rule is the opposite.. all goodies are available first and often exlusive in Asia :)
