I think there are two other sotx beijing 2008 limited rackets. Anyone tried them?
Is ibuysports or puppysports selling the rackets?
I saw the pic of beijing2008. it looks like SF201/202. anyone noticed that?
Yes, for the beijing 2008, it comes in 2 colours. Black and Red. But only the black is available.
For my side in Singapore, it comes with a free sotx jersey which prints "Zhi Chi Ao Yun,Jia You zhong guo" in chinese, which means, support the olympics, GO CHINA! with a dragon in the background. I am not sure if max giving out the free jersey.Interested members who are interested to have a look at the jersey, pm me your email address, i will send the picture to you. Too big to upload the picture here.
by the way, the jersey is a package together with the beijing 2008. Which is quite nice looking.
By saying it looks like SF201, I mean the rubber thing at the end of shaft( just above the handle)
Most sotx new rackets have the rubber thing on the cone.
i checked. Not most of them. Only relative cheap ones (SUPER LIGHT SERIES) have that rubber thing. I did not see that in any racket in other series so far.
It's also available in red ( dark red)
Haven't seen the matching shirt though.
The sotx side told me that only black is available.
I got a black version and a red version in a combi-email (together with new shoes)
Maybe the red one is already out of stock?
I noticed on the T-joint that the logo has changed. Is that SOTX new logo?
Yup, i got the email too.. but when i asked for the red, they said that only black is available.are u getting some?
Phandrew, yes, the new logo is a crooked S (below)
SGBad, Black is cooler anyway
But no, I don't think so... By the time I have them the OG would be over, and I still have plenty D500's and w9's left in stock (rackets like it)
But do tell us how they play
Sgbad, when will you get the woven 2008?
I see, try to get them. They are rather popular here in SG. I ordered 10pcs, now i have 2 standing. Will write up a review real soon.
So, do you have some good photo's? Sotx's are a bit dark/dull...
I will post pics when i get them.
My sotx shipment just arrived yesterday night. The Red ones came as well. Sotx actually told me that the red ones where not available, But well, it came. Yesterday was busy stringing for "my customers" who preordered those sotx rackets. Will come up with a pic and review tomorrow.
In the package of the LTD ED racket(Woven Beijing2008). There is
1x Woven Beijing 2008,
1x Racket Bag,
1x Sotx jersey
1x Product Certificate.(The certificate is very cool)
Stay tuned guys! Tomorrow after my session of badminton, i will update!
I'm currently using the W11i, very powerful racket, net control not as good but quite taxing to use due to its weight. Need some getting used to... Overall a gd racket and once i got use to it, i quite like it. (previously a TB3 user)
I've got myself the woven beijing 2008, tried it once, substantially lighter than the W11i, shorter but feels as head heavy. Better net and overall control but not as powerful as the W11i, but offensiveness still there. will be using it for the next few games and assess if i like it better than my w11i. first impression very gd...
