    then they send me the payment link, did the payment and again no response for a few days
    sent them an email and no response...again
    then they replied they will send the next day...
    actually only took 2.5 days in shipping (Japan to Macau)... no email to give you the tracking number of course
    the package just showed up at my office...

    I found some one said if you order in Japanese, they will deal with it right away (Google translate comes in handy)

    Their price is OK, the more you buy, the more discount you get, I bought a adizero pro and a precision pro, so I got a 25%off which is pretty much the same as if I travel back to HK and spend time searching and some food, so it's ok for me (of course the adidas stuff is not yet out in HK)

    My comment for Shuttle-house is: Buy from them if you must
    Do you know when MBS is going to carry Adidas rackets and shoes? I don't know how much longer I can wait for the US to get stock. How much do I have to buy to qualify for a discount? I don't see the Duoforce available on their website, but I could see myself buying at the minimum the BT Feather and the Adizero Pro. If they give me a reasonable shipping price and discount, I could see myself adding a Duoforce in just to try it out. If it doesn't work out, I could always sell it on BC. I'd imagine it wouldn't be that difficult to sell it over here.

    Do you have any idea when MBS will carry Adidas rackets and shoes? If MBS is cheaper than SH, then I'm willing to pull the trigger. I'd imagine that shipping time from either HK or Osaka to the US will take about the same amount of time. It'll probably be faster to get it from either of those stores than wait for a US retailer to carry stock!

    i just restring mine with the Adidas Power Balance 69 string and regripped it with white grip. looking very nice.

    Very sexy looking racket. I would probably use a white towel grip though.

    i asked and MBS says 2 weeks. as for pricing, i don't know if it is finalized or not. i guess pricing it correctly would be critical so it will take some work.

    does someone know which gripsizes adidas will offer? maybe different gripsizes for the same racket?

    @kwun: what are the gripsizes of your demo rackets?

    So at the end of this month? Have you ordered from MBS before? Since you're on the west coast, what's the average shipping price have been like for you? I might buy more than what I had intend to justify whatever shipping price they'll charge me.

    Kwun,

    Just wondering if you're going to review the Adizero Tour and the Adipower Tour?

    How about the N500 birdies?

    The bottom line is, is that it doesn't hurt sales. Early adpoters will still foam at the mouth, kwun will still talk it up or no company will give him free stuff ever again.....

    With such a massive roll out, people will just have to be patient. There's no incentive for them to hurry anything up. They have a plan, and are going to stick to it as it pertains to their ability to supply.

    One thing we don't really get a handle on, is the market concentrations, of who buys what and how much. Here are the numbers -
    )
    Hong Kong - 19.93%
    USA - 18.77%
    France - 9.02%
    Japan - 7.18%
    Netherlands - 6.15%
    Germany - 4.07%
    Belgium, China, Italy, South Korea, Malaysia, all about 3%

    So, you target HK and the USA, you target nearly 40% of the market.

    You release in some of the smaller markets like New Zealand at 0.47%, you can use that as a test market to refine your product line without too much risk.

    It's complicated

    (in case you were wondering about manufacturing countries.....China 88%, Japan 5%, Taiwan 4%. )
