    Small update: re-gripped and battle ready now at ~170.5gr. for the Ti-99 @ bp of ~355mm and ~166.5gr. for the Ti-88 @ ~360mm (159gr. without yellow G09L overgrip and only non-overlapped replcement grip on, down from 163gr. with stock overlapped replacement grip).
    Note [​IMG]: the advertised weight of 132 and 133gr. is more than likely the frame weight without any grip.

    Should note this seems to be a common practice in squash. Had borrowed a Dunlop Pro GTX 130 before but never brought home and measured it's actual weight :eek: ... but I see it listed at 130gr. unstrung and 145gr. strung all the time. Directsports even has it's successor the GTS 130 weighing 130gr. including grip and string by their own measurement supposedly (a little too perfect a number seeing as the GTS 140 also supposedly weighs a perfect 140gr. strung).

    Ordered my 5th and 6th Victor MX80 from Eric. Already on my 3rd purchase, or maybe 6th if to include the ones from Ebay, it has always been great dealing with him.

    One thing that's great about Eric is his prompt response (even on weekends sometimes).
    Smooth and easy dealing, and he deals with you personally! Never had any hiccups from him so far.

    Thanks Eric! will be making more orders soon! :D

    Just received my 1st order from Eric. Bought miscellaneous stuff like grips, wrist band, socks and so on. Feedback is super prompt. Advice on package weight is given in order to minimise the delivery charge. Photos of package are provided before shipping. Looking forward to order more items from RKEP!!!

    Hi all,

    I've been a long time lurker on these forums and I'm interested in perhaps buying a Yonex racquet from Eric's store (along with some other bits and bobs). They seem fairly competitive compared to the prices in England. Does anyone know why this is? I'm excluding the cost of shipping. Ie. Arcsaber 11 in UK is £148 but Eric sells for £120.

    I'm slightly apprehensive that I may be buying a fake racquet should I decide to purchase one. I could do with some reassurances from people who have bought Yonex racquets from Eric before. Also, does Eric own his own shop in Taiwan that sells racquets or something and does he also do the eBay business on the side? And if he only sells via his eBay store, where does he get the cheap-ish racquets from?

    Thank you.

    Hi Unlocking,

    Eric sells TW ie Taiwan coded rackets, ie for that region. Due to different distribution rights and markups, prices in SE Asia are always lower than EU and NA, hence the price difference.

    I've bought many Victor and Yonex rackets from him over the past 3 yrs, and they are not fake. If they were fake, they would be much cheaper. :p

    Thanks for the response Visor, I would've assumed it was due to mark-up prices in the EU but I wanted reassurance that Eric was genuine.
