    Default hong kong store. victor urgent

    Sorry guys but is someone able to help me out. I'm in Hong Kong and didn't really do Much research before coming out as I never intended to get a racket out here.


    I've seen a hk coded Victor k9000 thruster being sold at 1150 hkd. on today's exchange rate it works out to 92 UN strung.


    Now I am really tempted.

    The store us hippo sports. anyone else heard or used them as the search does yield much.


    What other stores are there around mong Lok that sells Victor. all stores sell yonex but not many stock Victor and the price is too attractive.

    hippo is fine and the racket will be genuine.

    you might get HKD30 cheaper in e78 but you also need to go all the way out there so the time and MTR probably cost more than HKD30.

    Good stuff. thanks kwun. worrying about the authenticity did cross my mind.

    The price is just too attractive. wanted a 4u but they only have 3u but all my other rackets are 3u anyway.

    I'll go back and get the racket.

    i don't know why some people have said prices aren't that good. even with rubbish - hk$ there are huge savings compared to UK.

    central sports selling voltric z force hi lin Dan selling for 190.

    Here in hk just over 100 !!!!! Half price !

    you can even have them string it there. sometimes they will give free stringing, but even if it is not, the labor + string cost will be much cheaper than UK. do keep in mind that stores might not be able to string it for you right there, so u will have to go back and get it the next day. some may do it for you, but not always.

    I would expect any top end racquet to be at least 30% cheaper in Asia than in UK.
