Cons to using a tennis bag for badminton
i've been searching for a badminton bag that's large enough to fit at least 9 rackets yet able to maintain the shape of the bag and not slouch/sag. so far i have not been successful. recently i got back into tennis and found a large 9 racket(tennis) bag from Babolat and the shell of the bag is really really stiff. it's so stiff that even without stuffing it, it was able to maintain the shape of the bag and allow me to observe visually, the volume of the bag. now the babolat bag has a thermal layer and i live in California, so i doubt i'll need that. besides my rackets being too warm in the summer sitting in the babolat bag, are there anything else i should watch out for that might harm my rackets? the reason is that i can't afford to replace rackets all the time, so i would like to treat them the best i could. any comments would be great appreciated!

i think the bag being stiffer and holding shape is actually great! and the thermal lining may help keep the rackets at a decent temperature in places like cali ( born there, i know the heat )
the only thing i like doing is keeping the rackets in their covers so they dont bump and scratch each other while in the bag

Get a cloth bag for each racket to prevent them from scratches.

Would you mind to post up a picture of your tennis bag?
Actually, if you want to buy large badminton bag for 9 rackets & yet still able to maintain its shape, as i only use Yonex bag so far, i could recommend you buying any Yonex 9 Racket bag as long as they are JP coded. Material used in JP bag is different than those SP bag, however the price is higher by quite a wide margin. I am also in the middle of consideration of buying Babolat Aero 12 Rackets bag which is endorsed by Rafa, the price is cheaper than Yonex JP bag, however since i could not inspect it in my local retailer, i could not know how solid it is. By right, Tennis bag should be more solid than Badminton bag, since tennis racket is heavier. If it is not as solid as Yonex JP bag, i will not buy it.
For taking a good care of your rackets, if the number of them is not so many, you could use single racket covers for preventing them bumping up with each other & making scratches. If your racket is quite a lot, you could use cloth bag, since it is thinner, yet still able to prevent those scratches. Additionally, a cheaper alternative would be, using plastic . When you buy racket, you will get a single racket bag with the racket inside the bag covered up with plastic, that plastic could be used. if you do not get the plastic , you could ask your frequently visit badminton store to ask for it, if they are nice enough, you could get it for free...

@gundamzaku Finally, i am able to inspect several tennis bag, which are several types of Wilson & Babolat. I am really sure that tennis bag is indeed really solid, it could be compared to Yonex JP Bag. Additionally, Forza badminton bag is quite solid as well, it is more solid than Yonex SP bag, for sure. It is a cheaper alternative for those of us who do not want to buy Yonex JP bag & Tennis bag, but still want a bag which still maintain its shape. Furthermore, i have also being informed that Lining & Victor is quite solid as well.

What Forza needs to do is to get more sponsored Professional Athletes in order to get more brand awareness in this competitive badminton world...

The colour of the forza bag look like a Li Ning bad without the yellow colour.

i use a head tennis 6pack bag right now... and i dont see any cons yet.
i like the fact that the shoe compartment is on the side, not on the bottom.
having it on the bottom is very annoying to me... it sticks out when youre trying to put in rackets and such.
also, badminton bags (mine is li-ning 6pack which i am not using) tend to be quite small...i have to struggle to get my rackets in there as opposed to tennis bags where i can just slide em right through.
and this head tennis bag has 5 compartments total whereas the lining one only has 2.
all in all, id use a tennis bag. its bigger.
id buy a 9 racket bag though if i could lol

I'm using Wilson k factor Pro Tour super 9 tennis bag. Buying it bcos solid to maintain the shape and have the thermal protection.
Got mositure guard also, but i dont think i need it.
Thermal site use for racket, moisture site for shirt, pant, towel and middle non protection use to store shuttle n shoe.
