    Hello.
    I've heard that in Hong Kong, sotx rackets are rarely sold there and only 1 or 2 shops sell them...is this true....if so which stores sell sotx rackets?
    I'm espically looking for sotx 7/8/11

    As far as I know, there is only one shop in HKG carries SOTX racket (very much like SIN that one only find them at Tao Payoh SAFRA).

    The English name of that shop is called Racket Shop and is located at Mongkok. If you come out at Mongkok MTR station towards Fa Yuen Street exit, walk towards you left after a few blocks, you will see it's big sign quite prominenly on the 2nd floor on a building along a junction. The ground floor is a typical small HKG restaurant.

    Full address is as follows:
    1st floor, 102A Fa Yuen St, Mong Kok, Hong Kong

    I got my SOTX 8A there.

    Hi Linus,
    Is SOTX at HK cheaper or is SOTX in Singapore cheaper? :p

    Lightsmash,

    The last time I was at TPY SAFRA (which is last year) I only saw one racket left on the rack (SOTX Woven 10) and the price was quoted off hand to me so I donot think it was fair for me to confirm which shop is cheaper.

    But by logic, as SOTX is produced in China, and everything else being equal, the transportation/distribution cost would be cheaper from China to HKG than from China to SIN. My personal opinion (and by comparing just on SOTX Woven 10 alone) is the retail price in HKG is slightly cheaper but not by much (about SGD15).

    I have not been to TPY SAFRA since so I donot know if the stocks have been replanished but the HKG shop have much much more models available (they have the whole Woven series, most Titanium, Berlin, Silver Fox series etc.)
