    I am currently using a 1 compartment Yonex bag at the moment...I can fit my racquets, shuttles and that's about it. I am in search of a bigger Yonex bag where I can fit clothes, shoes and others things in it. I am looking for a 6 racquet bag and just wanted to ask which models are suitable for me? Thanks in advance. :)

    well i prefer to get a badminton bag but tennis bag is also an excellent alternative. Just wondering...is the yonex 724 really huge?

    The 6 racket version of the yonex 724 is not big at all. In fact i've seen a lot of people at clubs who use this bag.

    The only know knock that i have about this bag is the plastic clips holding the straps to the bag. I'd prefer them to be metal clips like how the old backpack style yonex bags used to be.

    If you are looking for other backback style bags pointfore www.pointfore.ca has one that isn't too bad.

    thanks. i'll look into those but if you say that the 724-6 is not too big then that's a great choice too

    The 724 looks big at first impression, but you will find that it is not big at all. It doesn't swing around when I was on my bike because it has two straps. It is a good backpack. You will get used to it.

    Not available in my area yet. However, I would love to get hold of the Japan's Thomas Cup one with the orange coloured parts.

    I have a 9624-6 Pro which is great. I think you need to be a really serious player to need the 9, but i can get 3 raquets, shoes, towels, drink into the 6 with ease.

    Errrr... A bag is a bag (of course, different sizes), don't get it how it's going to reflect how "serious" a player s/he is... :eek: :rolleyes:

    Its because you need to be pretty serious about badminton to have that much gear to pack a 9-racket bag. Most of the people I play with simply sling one racket on their shoulder and show up in their badminton gear. :D

    I acutally like the plastic clips on the 724 back. The metal ones always bugged me because they twist around alot more, im not sure thats a good explanation but thats how it seemed to me. Another thing i like about the 724 is that the padding on the straps are built in so its like a backpack. The 724 is a perfect medium size, i have a 9 racket bag and its just too big for everyday use for me, the 724 is good for open gym and i might use my 9 for tournaments that are far away.
