    it comes unstrung. ie. no string.

    if you see it strung, that means you are either in the UK, or your local shop decided to pre-string it. if that's the case, it will depend on your local shop.

    I agree with kwun. but in some cases , some outlets just provide cheap nylon strings ( most of the time buyers cut them and restring it ) , if your lucky enough , some shop owners does provide good strings like Bg65 etc. they will offer you strings and they will string it for you.

    Not quite so, in Denmark almost the entire Yonex range comes factory strung with BG 80 at the usual "fishing net" tension (meaning very low). I have yet to see racquets being sold in Denmark without string.

    Holy Smoke! Now that's a true quality of a passionated badminton nation. Factory strung racquets with BG80s?! Almost seem like a waste to have BG80s strung at such a low tension though. Are the prices of the racquets there comparable to N.A.?

    Well, I did say almost the entire range. I don't know about those racquets, but at least all of the MP racquets and AT as well.

    Be carefull !!!

    From distributor, all the rackets come without string.
    Many shops do provide a string, they strung with low tension on it. Many of them with BG-65.
    It is better to buy a racket without string on it. So you can chose the string and tension by you self.

    My friend has a bad experience. I hope you guys have never gotten this experience.
    He bought a Ti-5 Light with string on it.
    After a few hours of play, he fond that the tension not high enough for hem and decided to replace it with a new one.

    Surprise ! After he cut the string, the racket was not symmetric at 4-5 (or 7-8) o'clock, bend out.
    When the string still not it, the racket was symmetric, nothing wrong with it, because the shopper/stringer had done his 'best' to made the racket symmetric.

    So guys.... becarefull.
