    recently bought a racquet bag from Kin Yee Racket Shop in Mongkok. Paid 690 hk for one made in china instead of japan as they told me. my own fault for not doing research and reading the fine print.

    just wanted to share my experience with you. i just joined the site and found lots of useful information. thank you.

    Don't be too disheartened. I assume you saw and felt the bag before you purchased. So you must have been happy to pay that amount for the bag (apart from the fact it is not a Yonex..I assume).

    BTW - what kind of bag was it?
    HK$690 sounds like a lot for bag. Around GBP£60?

    it is a bag right

    so dont regret, whatever yonex bag can do, your bag also can do.

    if you feel it was to expensive, consider it charity

    I'm doubtful. My yonex shoes are made in china. My guess is yonex bags are made there as well. Japanese labour is just to expensive for the average consumer to pay for.
