    better to invest in low end asics

    low end yonex not worth getting, i had a pair and the left shoe was badly torn (used 5-6 months)
    same with another friend, half year as well

    yup gel blade 3 is high end shoe,
    yup,at discount price RM149.50 ,...the cheapest local badminton shop is normally RM249.00,...its a sale Gawai here at sarawak now :)
    supprisely comfort with it,feel more comfort than my Mizuno Wave Blocker 8,...i wear it 3 time only since buy it,i spin my ankle on 2nd time wear the mizuno,but i dont think it because of shoe,more probly my footwork sucks ;) ,..mizuno is confort and fit,but need to carefull tie the shoe lace,extra fit will make u unconfortable :p

    not sure,gel rocket 5 retail is RM249 if im not mistaken,its already a good shoe :)

    i dont think so,retail price is RM299 for both asics 1130V and Mizuno Wave Blocker 8, 1130V is old model 2009/2010?? while Blocker 8 is 2010/2011 new model :)

    oh ya,i bought Wave Blocker 8 for RM220 with free nice and good quality mizuno socks :) ,...i heard KL can get RM160 for it,..

    get the one rm250-rm300 price range,its good for you already,..no need rm300-rm500 =_=, but i tell you one thing,invest on the shoe can save you from kronic problem when you get old,you didn't notice it right now,it only will come when you 40's ..huhuhuu at that time,its already too late to get a good shoe ;) ,..if can buy rm300 racket,just invest a little more on shoe, :) ...shoe is like insurance, hahaa ,just my 2cent, ;)
