    Maybe not many people had tried the racquets but if you have, why don't you write a review? It would be much appreciated.

    I have not seen any ProAce for sale in Vancouver. Of all the stores in town, Tad's has the biggest selection of different brands (Yonex, Victor, Carlton, Babolat, Winex, Gosen, Prince, etc). although I don't think they carry Forza yet.

    I know several players using Pro Ace but did not get an opportunity to try out the racquets.

    I currently can get my hands on racquets like JooBong and SOTX. :)

    I was told by my dealer that ProAce racquets are as good as yonex and it's even cheaper.

    Not only that, it only withstands up to 31 Ibs :D as claimed by the proace website(http://www.proace.com.tw/badminton/badminton.htm) and the dealer without any deformities and cracks.

    In fact, it still maintains it's original shape even under high tension.


    I would love to do a review on proace racquets, sad to say :( i don't own any of it.

    I would be glad if any kind souls who happens to own any of the proace racquets and do a review on it.

    just,

    There are several reviews of Pro-Ace rackets in the miscellaneous reviews section here. Perhaps you can get some informative input from those reviews.

    WWC, mind PMing me or posting your experiences with SOTX rackets?? :D

    I believe that I have used one ProAce racquet in Taiwan when I was little.
    The only two things I remember were:

    The racquet is durable
    The racquet is heavy

    And that's it:)

    I am using Proace Dream Titanium (highest Proace range).
    Quite a lot of them on sale in KL.
    It have been quoted by other players that for a Proace racket of RM150 the "feel" is as good as compared to a RM400 Yonex.
    I used to play with Yonex, now not anymore since the price is quite steep for my wallet. Been moving up from widebody 22, 33 and now Dream....

    As most of you would know...Apacs bought over Proace. And Apacs is owned by a chinese company called Yong Qiang Feiying. i assume that this company originally made bags for proace. check out their kiddy bags at their website. hehe.

    http://www.yongqfying.com/


    the website for Apacs is www.gzproace.com

    they literally took the proace website and just relabelled all the racquets to Apacs. Makes you wonder if they actually did a proper relabelling or just some "..lets call this that..and that one this..."

    generally, proace racquets are bang for your bucks. But i have to say one thing, they have a large number of different series and they tend to feel the same.

    However, for me...i will steer away from Apacs/Proace (eventhough it's old proace) cause it's under a new management and you just have to see how the quality of their products going to be in near future.

    i know of a friend that uses a few proace rackets..he bought them in europe ..an as many have mentioned above, can't find many or any in north america.

    From my observations, and this probably doesn't imply to all proace rackets...i noticed on one of their titanium rackets (afraid i can't remember the model)..that the titanium at the 3 and 9 o clock positions was fake...it was just painted to look like titanium.

    ...

    Hmm.... i think my friend's XD partner uses a Proace as a backup. If i remember accurately it was also a titanium dream, and it felt quite lite, and balanced, with decent repulsion and dampening. A decent racquet i wouldn't mind playing with, not sure of the price tho.

    actually they are not that cheap, paid S$120.00 string with bg85 for the ti dream as compare to yonex which is around S$160 +- but the only thing is that ti dream comes in 5U which is very good for young player.

    hmm my friend own a Sweetspot 2000. he paid RM180(bout 50US) for that...

    welll.... that racket is very lite and balanced.... although the swing is very fast..... the racquet is hard to control because it's so light......

    ...i wouldn't recommend this racquet....

    the power is poor although the swings are fast...... i only manage a baseline return to middle court when i used all my strength whereas with my Yang Yang Yoga, i can manage baseline to baseline with lesser strength......

    ...welll..... still i'll recommend Yonex... although maybe Proace and Yonex Felt The Same.... but there is still a slight difference that makes Yonex the top of the business......
