    INTRO:

    I made this thread as a personal archieve,on my journey playing Yonex rackets for this past 6 years,but i want to share with u guys here,for other fellow yonex lovers.

    I started to like n play badminton at 2006,simply because i didn't have anymore chance to play soccer due to overcrowded field.I felt somehow i need to do some sport to maintain my fitness.

    I'm from a country which badminton is a popular sport,and my dad also plays it.But i hardly play badminton while i was in Indonesia.In fact,the first time i really begin to play badminton is when i was in China for study.

    First racket ever bought is a fake cheap yonex racket.That was when i only take this sport as a vacational sport.

    After i started to get more serious,i got a middle end and a high end Kason racket.It was recommended by my coach,which i just trained there for 2 months,i felt i didn't get what i'm looking for.After that,it was all free play,until i saw how TH impressed me with his style,with his beautiful AT900T,i talked to my GF,can i have that for my birthday present..

    She agreed,then there comes my first highend yonex racket,AT900T..at 2007 august,which i still have it till now..:p

    From that moment on,i really felt what's good about this brand.Before i had my first highend yonex racket,i kept on doubting,whether is it really worthed.Even not long after my first AT900T,my love for this brand has grown too fast,that i couldn't stop spending my pocket money to buy more of it.:D..After having the 1st one,in a year,i bought around 10 pcs.I still remember the first five.AT900T CH,AT900P TW,AT700NC SP,AT900P CH,AT900P JP.Afterwards,NS8K OC ,Ti10 1st gen,2ndgen,NS9KX,MP100,AT700OC.

    Like most people,i also tried other brands.Name any big brands and their top models before 2008,i should have tried most of them.Comparing all of them,made me decide,that i would stick to just this brand.IMO,even if now Yonex market has decreased,since they lost China and Korea,they still make the best rackets..models of rackets that even fans from other brand would recall.


    Enough with the intro,long story short,here they are,total of 91 models of Yonex highend rackets..

    That's an awesome collection! :eek:

    If you would post your address, the details of the types of locks on your doors and windows, a link to Google Street View, and also a time when you and your family surely won't be at home, I will consider sneaking in to loot your collection.

    Lol another collector...

    I especially like your collection of MusclePowers and Carbonex rackets... I am thinking of getting a Cab-15 to use as my new daily driver once my Ti-10 (2nd gen) breaks.

    Bro,
    What an avesome and blown of mind collection you having there.
    I am sure if you consider to loan me your racket to open up a museum then we can earn back some cash from entrance fees...

    Would you mind to share which piece of top 3 racket was your most fav to you and why ? which racket is the most priceless in market value now...and so on...

    That Boron 200 is one piece of an hot property to me !!

    This thread title should be collection archieve,since all left from this 91 kinds is maybe around 50%.Just keeping the kinds that i feel wanna keep

    Lol,great idea..but much better if bc can gather collections from the members,do a world tour sponsored by yonex,gather some entrance fee,n make charity out of it.I've seen other awesome vintage collections from other members here..

    What is priceless,i believe,is vary for each collector.For me,it's my first yonex highend Armortec 900T,who made me gone this far.Haha..

    My top 3 fave rackets,AT900P,from 2007 till today.Then AT700OC, Voltric ZF..

    I'll do that when i have spare time.I have used 7 hours to gather all the pictures,sorting,watermarking,arrange,type everything out.So i haven't had enough time to do editing on every pictures..

    In the mean time,all of you sort your sight manually to just the yonex..=P

    But that shouldn't matter to a collector, they'd be more concerned about an incomplete collection.

    Trust me not hard for me to get it.It's just that i am not interested.So does other incomplete models.I'm not those who just buy rackets to make my collection more complete,just get whatever i feel ok to get.Why would i bother to get it if i don't feel like getting it?=)
