Anyone got experience with Prince rackets? Are they good?
Where can I find them in Singapore?

Eh, just buy Yonex's top end racquets if you are really serious about badminton. Unless you are not serious about the sport, then perhaps you shouldn't even play it, but yeah, Yonex seems to be the most popular brand among badminton players, and I personally feel it is better than any other brand out there. I've used Pointfore's graphite racquet (my first racquet), then Yang Yang's JSmash/Tactic 8500 (2nd) which was nice, and then MP33 (3rd and 4th racquet) which was sort of a lower end Yonex racquet, but after I broke 1, and damaged the other MP33 by hitting it on the floor, I used my friend's MP77, which was pretty great. And now, I use Yonex Armortec 700. And there is indeed a difference in quality indeed. The MP77 and the Yang Yang one was pretty good, I'd say, but the Armortec 700 can perhaps be said to be, way better than both of them. But then, it is more expensive. Yeah, but that is the thing about Yonex racquets and equipment. They tend not to be very great unless it has reached a certain price range, like 150 or so, I'd say. But some racquets like Carbonex 30 Muscle which I believe would be pretty good for a near low end price. Or just buy a used high end racquet, if you can find it. Because my Armortec 700 is used, and it works wonderfully.

Do you have shares in Yonex company???? So if I am not using Yonex racquet, then I am not serious right?

here's a simple answer. prince rackets are also good! if not better than other YY rackets. that is if you want value for money. There are also other brands that are as good and at a very affordable price. i've played with really serious players using prince rackets than those using YY rackets. the brand doesn't make a player good/serious. it is his attitude towards the game that matters.

To answer your first question, yes they are good... and priced a lot less that Yonex.

we have a pretty good selection of prince rackets here in the philippines. I've had the opportunity to use both high-end yonex rackets (AT500,700,800of and MP99) as well as mid-range prince rackets (Force 307ti, NXGraphite 85)
prince rackets are easy to use and if you're looking for medium flex rackets, try 'em. Those used to extra stiff shafts, look elsewhere.
on a side note, the prince website www.princebadminton.com doesn't show all available models. In fact, the rackets shown there are 2002/2003 models!!!

But they seems quite rare in Singapore... Any idea where can I find them?

Racket can't generate the prefect strokes, but the players with the proper method and hard work will. In terms of quality, Prince rackets are good for the bucks. Knowing a local player using Prince TTT warrior, and everytime I play against her, my record looks like T_T... so, it's the player...

Isn't it a little extreme to not play a sport because you are not serious enough? Lots of people play for fun and for social reasons....
I'm serious about having fun .. will that do ?
anyway, good review of the rackets..

Therefore, just use a particular model or 2, can't represent the entire brand. If you happen to try MP66 (head light) 1st, can you conclude Yonex is all crap???
To me, suitable = great, not suitable = nightmare, regardless the brand name, price, etc.

personally, i dun like the prince racquet nxGraphite 85... i dunno. prolly too light for me. but that's my point of view only. depends more on how u like ur racquet to be.

There were some professional players using Prince rackets before.
I saw one was a England team member who used Prince racket in 93 Thomas Cup
I saw one was a Hong Kong team member who used Prince racket in a local match 7-8 years before.
So I think Prince may not be a dumn rackets, but it may not suite most of pro-players and/or doing poor marketing work.
