    why in the UK we always pay such high premium for yonex racket ? for Voltric 70 we pay more than £140 (centralsports and directsports website) but in Germany it's about £129.00 incl postage and re-stringing etc http://www.racket-outlet.de/badminton/yonex-voltric-70.html. i think i have to buy my next one from Germany.

    You'll have to ask Yonex about that. :D But if they start to realise that people aren't buying from the UK and importing from EU countries instead they might drop the price. I doubt they will though. It will be a loss to badminton if distributors are forced to close in the UK but in these hard economic times...cash is king.

    Have had racquets sent on two occasions from Germany , on the last one saved nearly 50 pounds on a Z force. Took about 5 days to arrive , would recommend it over the bland indifference of some of the UK e-tailers.
