    Default Are racquets made in Taiwan bad?

    I'm just wondering because I recently ordered a at saber 009DX and I've heard rumors and stuff about racquets from Taiwan are pretty bad compared to the Japan ones?

    Nonsense. Yonex high end are made in Japan. Mid range made in Taiwan and lower end are made in China.
    Nothing bad about what factory they come out of.
    Heck Victor does things differently. Their high end are split between Taiwan and China. But all mid and lower end are made in China.

    Nah, I was being facetious... tongue in cheek. China is just as good, but depending on which sub contracted factory, I suppose.

    However, since you brought up Adidas, from what I've read of the ones reviewed over the past several weeks, the paint QC doesn't seem up to par compared to Yonex or Victor.

    Yea, I think that's what was mentioned in the thread. Possibly a first run issue? Maybe subsequent rackets will be better?

    I'm using Voltric 5 (made in Taiwan) , before changing to Voltric 80.. for me, Voltric 5 performance is not to bad.. suitable for mid-range level of play.. :-)

    I see, I played with a nano speed 100 strung with bg 80 power 25/24 lbs its a pretty good racquet and I looked on the shaft and it said: made in Taiwan , so I'm not that worried I could really smash hard with my nano speed

    You can just look at RKEP rackets, they are made in Taiwan, and their rackets is at least on par with the other big brands.

    They're all good, they just depend on your playing style, pick a racquet that you're msot comfortable with, no need to buy expensive racquets .

    I don't think yonex makes any rackets in Japan. They may well make some of the materials, but I doubt they actually make the rackets there.
