    Is it ok to name names in the forum? Anyway, there is only 1 badminton shop there. It's on the second level right next to a steak house. The shop has a pair of them displayed with price sticker. It's HKD 763 now. Price has already been reduced 3 times since launch I believe. Compare to buying this thru Shuttle -House, it's a alot better deal.

    Perhaps you are right on the orange one, the real thing looks like a toy shoe. It may be cool for a few months but will propably go out of style when Yonex decided to bring out some other colour/design combo later.

    Only the yonex shb 101 ltd blue and yonex shb 102 ltd black/yellow... the Yonex shb 65ft was from shuttlehouse japan, victor sh8600ace was from eric of squashmart and the asics gel blast 3 was shipped from UK

    thanks... i wish to own all the shoes you have... :)

    just curious about SHB 102 LTD... there seems to be two LIMITED editions... one is black/yellow and the other is white/red..... their prices are different too... black/yellow is a bit more expensive.... other than colour, what are the differences between these two editions???

    Except for the color? Nothing really. It's just that the black and yellow is meant as a LCW edition. But apparently, he still doesn't want to let go of his yellow shb92mx

    here in the philippines, lots of players use the shb 102... I just used my 65ft last night and it felt great being worn. First like what has been previously said about it, it is on the narrow side of yonex shoes... it felt like a glove when worn as compared to the shb 101 and 102 as well as with the victor 8600ace as well... the fit somehow resembles that of my asics gel blast 3 but the 65ft fits more snuggly... with the support, the shb 101 and 102 still provides better support but not by a wide margin. the cushioning is different from the 101 and 102 although they both have powercushion...it is more comparable to the cushioning provided by the asics gel blast... with respect to the weight, i would classify it as one of the lighter shoes that i have... maybe the lightest.... with respect to the performance, it did great overall...there was speed in my moves because of its light weight and good amount of support and cushioning... its look striking in the court too.... If you would ask me if what among my shoes provides for the best performance, i would say that the Asics Gel Blast 3 would be my favorite. It provides superior cushioning and support plus it is lightweight too.....

    I forgot to tell that i also have a yonex shb85 ex although its not in the photo.... Comparing the two, the 65ft has a narrower fit as against the 85ex.... 65ft also has more cushioning infront but just the same with respect to the backheel. tHEY are both light, probably in the same weight.

    look at the photos and you would see that its the gel blast 3... it is indeed specifically made for squash however it has always been mentioned in different shops and the asics website itself that the gel blast series is the top of the line court shoes of asics... They have put together asic's flagship features in that line.... I'll pass on the gel blast 4 for now as my shoes are still relatively new and that its very hard to look for asics court shoes here in asia specifically in the philippines.
