    I have no experience with Mizuno rackets, but as people have been talking about the Tetracross 700 and the GP-10 looks to be desirable, I was wondering how they would compare to the racket I am currently set on getting-the Ti-10-that is, unless convinced otherwise.

    The best person to talk to is TwoBeer as he has both TC-700 and GP-10.

    Wow, I just checked the prices from shuttle-house, and they're outrageous compared to the Ti-10. :eek:

    You mean it's cheaper or more expensive ?

    I've asked Mr Twobber about the Tetracross 700 and GP10, and he says that the TC700 is better, atleast for him it's one of his favourites..

    Oh well.. I'll just quote his review on the TC700:
    Hmm.. maybe it's the 'best racquet in the world'... :rolleyes: No negative comments :D
    These reviews and opinions can be different to every person though.

    I'm planning to get one when I'm back in Japan at the end of the year as well..

    Oh yeah Twobber, thanks again for the review ! :)

    It's a lot more expensive. It's posted at around 24,150 Yen, and converted, that's ~$242 USD.

    Get a group order going and save by having the discounts.

    Eh, I don't think it'd help lower the cost that significantly that it'd be in a range I'd want to pay. I'm only willing to spend up to perhaps $180 right now, so I was going to buy a Chao Pai Nano Power 728 from Mr. Dink and a Ti-10, which would be under that amount. I was just curious about these rackets after reading some threads.

    Does anyone know of a less expensive shop?

    Just get the old one.. 14490yen, that's a 40% discount.
    The old version is the one that Twobber's using.
    And 14490 yen, that's.. about 130USD. Have a group-buy and the price will even be lower for each person. Just add the shipping fees.
    100yen per 1USD was quite a long time ago.. the exchange rate's different now.

    Just remember, there are only 16 more left in their stock.. 8x 3UG4's and 8x 3UG5's. Or maybe only 15, because I want a 3UG5 TC700 so badly right now.. :D

    Well, let's see how many people want to get into this group buy, and we'll see how low it'll go.

    The discounted TC700's at Shuttle-House are all gone :(

    Fortunately, there's Kaiseng Badminton that we can take a look at now, with their very competitive prices.

    Don't look at the old TC700 any more, Twobeer did mention that the new version is more than a face lift and there's discernible improvements.

    Go order more TC700 from Kai Seng !
