Thread: Yonex SHB-F1 LTD / MX

Been using the f1 ltd for about a week now. You do notice a weight difference and it has taken me a couple of days to get used to the "wave" pattern under your toes in the insole.
Really good shoe.

saw the F1 series in pertama sold MX for RM350 and the LTD for RM440. pretty big difference and more expensive than the SHB-86ex @ rm320 :S

Looking to plain
Doesnt these pair of shoes look very plain compared with other models produced by yonex.

they may look plain but they work who cares?
I noticed a lot of players using these shoes at All England. One or two non Yonex players were also wearing them.
The question is, at the price they are selling for, will they be a good seller or benefit you as a player?

Bearing in mind RRP is £120 that's not a bad price. But, I think they are way too expensive comparing to other shoes. Also you need to take into account potentially how long they will last.
Players who wear out shoes quickly should avoid these at all costs.

After a month of using F1 LTD, 3 times a week, i can say that they wont last as long as the 102LTD.
Probably due to their great lightness!

The wave pattern does make the insoles feel like your sock has bunched up or something else gone wrong to begin with but doesn't take long to adjust to.

I got my shoes on Saturday and I noticed the plastic "Flywire" type topcoat doesn't really conform to the foot like traditional shoes do. The shoes don't have any kind of overlay in design that helps move with the foot. It doesn't flex well with the soles. Here is a pic:
Once they are laced up though, you won't notice this as much. There is very little material in the uppers of these shoes, especially the togue.
Here is the weight of the shoe compared to some others in 25.5cm:
Overall, the shoes are ok, but not really worth the premium if you are going to pay the full retail price.

thaanks zapirian, will check out the SC5. just found out that the SC series means "Soft Cushioning"
wow, yeah. only a few grams from the mizuno's you have there. what model is that mizuno (267g)? wave fang xt?
compared to others, how does the cushioning compares? thanks.

Yes, Wave Fang. http://shuttle-house.com/new-cgi/pro...o=18&mk=MIZUNO
Highly recommended for grip. The Wave Smash has better cushioning because there is a space in the heel to collapse.
So far, I found the ShbF1 a pretty tight fit. You may want to get a half size bigger. The cushioning is quite good on the F1, especially when you strike the heel directly. The forefoot seemed just ok. I think the Asics provides the best cushioning if you have gel in the entire shoe. However, the weight of the shoe is usually heavier. I haven't tried the Gel Blade yet or some Asian market ones in a long time.

Just got mine today, it went awesomely good... its a replacement for my soon to die asics gel blade 3, performance awesome but durability can be a issue, very comfortable!
