    Yonex stuff only about 5-10% off. I guess they could return it to Sunrise. Hey Lee, I've never seen an Aeroplane before. Were they made in Japan, Taiwan or ..

    The Aeroplane brand is a Made-in-China company manufacturing Sports goods like Badminton, tennis rackets and accessories. They were making metal and even Carbon-graphite rackets for a while but now you can only find shuttlecocks being sold here in Singapore.
    The particular 515 model wooden badminton racket I use was apparently first produced in '77/78 for the Chinese National Badminton team as well before being sold to the masses and overseas.

    Guys could someone advise which is more worth collecting. A yonex b-3000 or a silvergray. both are going for about sgd 100+ but the yonex has a bit of discolur on the cone n light scratches on the frame. the silvergray is in mint condition.

    I would go with the Silver Grays...it being in mint condition and secondly I would think they're harder to find than the Yonex.
