    i did have a look at their website. it's a too simple website not much information and option for buying (i.e no way to choose a string to go with it etc...) .... so i didn't buy from them and they are not cheap

    You can always restring yourself after you get the racket. You have to pay for it online too anyway.

    i know. but i like to play the new racket straight away when it arrives. I don't like to get the racket then have to go down to the stringer (he is always busy) and wait several more days for him to put the string on. If the website offer people the choice to pick the string and tension also the grip etc then the racket will be ready as you required when you received it and you can just pay it out of bag. Most of the people will be happy to pay for the service.

    I'm vaguely interested in getting a Euro spec BS11 - looking for a 2012 quality (clearcoat over hologram) racket - but with the older TW specifications:

    Stiff ____v__o______Flexible

    Any suggestions for companies that ship overseas?

    13 years is fine for getting sponsored. Take part in competitions (and win ), and you could get noticed. Alternatively, there are also clubs which are sponsored. You could try to join one of them.

    Getting sponsored at age 13 is tough. Too many manufacturers are being careful where sponsorship money is used these days.

    Statistics will show that there is a massive change in the number of good players staying in badminton in UK from aged 16. It's that what else have they discovered question that takes their eye off badminton. For the lads it's usually girls and beer and not necessarily in that order.

    To get sponsored you have to show that you may have something a business wants...marketability. An 11 year old showing tremendous promise, doing well at tournaments etc will attract attention for sponsorship.

    An intermediate player generally does not attract a sponsor. You have to show a potential sponsor what you've won, show them what tournaments you will be playing and where you go in badminton terms to give them exposure.

    Well, if you're looking for the old spec 4/5 stiffness BS11 with the new clearcoat design, you could always try buying from the US. If JT Sports' prices are indicative of the market price in the UK, then it's the same retail price here in the US. I'm sure there are members of the forum who can help you persuade the shop owner to ship to you.
