Sorry typo, should be persuade ....typed too fast...getting old
Actually i have 10. cant fit all in one shot.
Bind them together to make the expensive peacock....
Wow, that is a very good price! But is the price just for you? If the price is for everyone, i will make the trip down!
Maybe you can post this up at the Singapore Price list page.
wish someone in KL kind enough to offer the same....
The 'typo' is hardly out of bounds.
You pursued him and persuaded him
Perhaps now this racquet will find more takers.
that's a steal at that price!
i'd definitely go for it if i was in the vicinity.
great i'll camp outside his shop on Friday night then
i bet once his competitors hear of this, they would start ringing up sunrise and lodge a complaint for selling below the recommended price... its wont be the first time anyway...
It's more likely that Sunrise will be secretly pleased.
If not for such promotions, this racquet won't sell too many
PS: So, how much is the 'recommended' price?
In the UK, the recommended price will be about £160-£170 (like all high end Yonex) and that's about S$345-S$366.60. S$240 is about £111 and so, an excellent price.
dang i didn't know about this. i like the white/yellow color. at the yonex site it's darker colors.
i was at the yonex site reading their new technology called "X-Fullerene" on this NS9900. on the first 2 lines says:
"The speed of Badminton, which is the world’s quickest racquet sport, has been increasing due to developments in racquet technology and the new rally point scoring system."
what is this new rally point scoring system like??
It's actually a lot darker than the pics shown here. And more metallic.
Officially it's metallic orange.
hi ants so u making any review on yonex at600?
Their new technology?
Yonex hasn't developed any new technology.
They simply make use of available technology.
And, well, that's what every manufacturer does.
If you think fullerene is either new technology or their new technology, you have been gored by the Yonex marketing bull and have also fallen into their bull's droppings
Fullerene was discovered in 1985 - that's nearly a quarter of a century ago!
Its discoverers (Kroto, Curl & Smalley) won the Chemistry Nobel in 1996.
The facts have been massively skewed when it comes to nanotubes.
(Nanotubes are actually fullerenes in a cylindrical arrangement.)
Although they were first industrially made only in 1991, nanotubes were discovered and synthesised as early as in 1952 by Russian scientists.
If you didn't know it, carbon fullerenes resemble the two most popular football variants.
Carbon 60, the most available fullerene, is shaped exactly* like a soccer ball.
Carbon 84 too is spherical.
Carbon 70 is not spherical - however, it closely resembles a rugby ball.
*Carbon 60 is a truncated icosahedron.
So is a modern recreational football (a soccer ball, if you will).
A football has 32 panels.
Of these, 20 are hexagons and 12 are pentagons.
This shape is called a truncated icosahedron.
(Strictly speaking, the air pushing outwards makes it a spherical polyhedron.)
Watch any modern badminton match video... and you'll get it
ONly 1 racket? wow, would there be a stampede, I wonder???
Din, I can get you one for less than the above, and it also includes free stringing. Ditto for the Yonex Amortec Superbrands. But I will only travel to KL end of year in Nov. and again in early Dec. I can also bring enough shuttles that my limited baggage allowance allows. This offer is only for you.
So cool... there is then enough time to string up and still make it to Bedok View for the game. You should then partner up with Oldhand for a NS9900 pair -- maybe take on the ZELM pair of Derek & Sgbad.
Is this all common knowledge or did you do some research?
