    I've always liked the color of the TI-280/290.
    Would look good on Pro 9000 as well. :)

    I know copying other companies is a passionate hobby in SE Asia, but I'm not a fan, so I'm trying to campaign Eric to do some of his own designs and create a strong identity for RKEP.

    ERIC has a great talent for spec'ing rackets that play very well and fill in holes in the current market, and I think it's aiming a bit low by 'doing an APACS' and copying the designs of others. Yonex and Victor don't do it, and there's a very good reason for that.

    I fully understand that there are big MOQs to get through and it's tough building a business, but good design and branding pays for itself, and lifts your business above the clones and wannabes.

    hi, does RKEP have a local retailer here in South Korea? I want to avoid the shipping charges, et al. if possible.

    I'm interested in getting a PRO 6000. Care to compare its stiffness with the ARC7?
    I understand that the balance of the PRO 6000 can also be tweaked. Please recommend a configuration. I'd like it to be slightly head heavier than the ARC7. (maybe similar balance to an ARC 10/8DX).

    Thanks. Appreciate the help.

    Hi all,

    Where can I get the RKEP PRO9000 in Malaysia (KL / Selangor)? What is the selling price in RM?

    I am pretty sure the only way you can get it is shipped from Eric, no local dealers anywhere yet. Price is 100 USD, dunno what that is in RM.

    Wow, this is a bizarre situation. Kinda like walking into a bar and asking if they have anything to drink!
