    Got my zforce from First Sport in BK in Apr 2012. Recently got a chance to compare it side by side with a SP coded. SP was bought in early 2012 in SG.

    Did notice that the location of the specs of the TH racket is positioned lower towards the butt that SP.

    Is that normal? Will compare the butt colour later.

    Spec of SP
    Weight 91g
    BP 315mm

    Spec of TH
    Weight 96
    BP 300mm

    I have a TH coded bought from First Sport,3UG5 though, whithout over-grip and string is 88.5gm, within the specified weight ratings. I believe your racket weights included the string and the over-grip. That is why there is a big difference. I have a precision weighing balance so it is very accurate.

    The coding is exactly the position of your TH racket, and I had bought a lot of rackets from First Sport when I was working in thailand. No doubt they are genuine.

    Price from Yonex Thailand web site = 5,750 Baht. Thus, the small store in Thailand would sell it at around 4700 - 5000 Baht.

    Not sure of your location but Mizuno shoes are more expensive in Bangkok compared to Singapore prices.

    Buy online and ask them to EMS to your hotel within 1-2 working days or directly visit the shop of these websites. payment can be made via ATM transfer if you prefer them to EMS to you.

    I checked with the shops behind National Stadium + first sports in several mall across few provinces, these 2 sellers still sell the rackets slightly cheaper, and they are 100% trustworthy.

    Oh man. I'm tempted to buy one since I'm dropping by on 22 April. Hmm. Anyone knows how does the prices in Bangkok as compared to Taipei? I will be making a trip to the two cities but do not know Yonex prices in these countries.

    Hey guys, I am going to Bangkok next month, and I want to know where can I get both Yonex and Gosen rackets? Heard they are much cheaper than those in Malaysia.

    I just got back from Bangkok - here's an update on the shops I visited...

    MRC Sports (Ari) - CHEAPEST Gosen and Kumpoo rackets. I got my Tenbu, Fujikura 3900T and Hexegon Special-1 there.... at about 10630 Baht. Yeah. Three rackets at absolutely bonkers price. Will visit them again when back to Bangkok.

    Parrot Sport (Ratchewari) - Have some interesting Gosen Roots rackets, but the Ryoga series are 20% more expensive than MRC. Only got my stringing done there... and have very limited Yonex rackets. No Li Ning, or Victor.

    Personally, MRCSports is still the best deal for me when i visit Thailand. 100% insurance for authentication, and the price is cheaper than else where... cheaper than the infamous parrot sport or sport marketing. Too bad, none of them sell Adidas racket yet.

    Hey everyone. I'm going to Bangkok next month and looking to buy a new racket to replace my 15 year old Ti3..

    Does anyone have prices in baht for:
    Voltric 60
    Voltric 70 (is this still being sold or has the e-tune version replaced it?)
    Arcsaber 11
    Arcsaber Z-slash

    I will be looking in the shops near the stadium and also in the malls - I heard that in bigger stores you can get a form and claim the tax back at the airport when you depart Thailand?

    Also hope to get some new Yonex shoes and t-shirts.

    Thank you!

    Agree with Arfandy, you are better off going to Mrc sports than to the shops at National stadium.

    The prices are more competitive at the shops near the stadium (or MRC) compared to the malls (eg Paragon, Supersports etc) even though there is no VAT refund.

    You need to spend at least Baht 5,000 in the malls and fill in the VAT refund form to claim the 7% VAT. You can go the VAT refund counter (before immigrations) to process the form and collect the refund after you have cleared immigrations.

    Yonex t-shirts (made in Thailand) are available at the Yonex showroom located on Level 3, Central World Plaza.

    It depends on the price range you purchase, if i was in banglok i will go to the small shop near the stadium for good bargain but no VAT claim.
