    I'm about to buy a Voltric Z-Force which originally was bought from Rose Sports Goods & Sports Clothing Co in Hong Kong. Is this store truth worthy

    Rose has been around a very long time. I've bought from their before.

    My pal in HK bought me my Z-force in HK so I can ask him where he bought them from.

    If you aren't sure, they should be issued with a special "hologram" filter/decoder from yonex and they can show you what happens to the new hologram sticker on the racquet.

    I've bought over a dozen racquets from them since 1996, but I've also bought from Mr Wen's and Luxis in the past.

    I have an option to buy the racket either from Singapore or from hongkong, as my friend Ian visiting both these places next week. In Singapore the cheapest price seems to be around 240 sgd. Can you surely confirm that I will get an authentic voltric z force in HK for just £100 (I.e. SGD 200)?Also is 3U available in HK?

    I only just bought my two VT-ZF 4U's less than three weeks ago and a friend shipped them over from HK.

    I can confirm they are this price as I sent the money into my pal's UK bank account.

    If I can confirm the shop details etc for you, perhaps your friend Ian could get some from the same place.

    I'll know more once my mate in HK wakes up and reads my e-mail. He works shifts so it may be a few hours.

    The trade price in the UK is more expensive than what I would pay retail in HK. Absolutely ridiculous I know, but it's worth the money.

    If you went to HK for a few days holiday and brought back 20 racquets, you could sell them and cover the cost of your holiday easily.

    Did your friend Ian come to HK to get wed??

    Anyways I've seen the racquet for just under $1300 with BG65

    As for ROSE (they sell only genuine stuff) I will never buy or recommend from there ever again after they mishandled an Arc Z Slash. And if you're stringing at higher tension go elsewhere

    Hi, send me a PM with your e-mail address and I can give you the details of my contact in HK. His name is Vincent and he bought my racquets from a shop in Aberdeen.
