Yonex shuttlecock is from one factory, why Singapore shuttlecock is so expensive.
But Rackets and shoes are consider almost same price with Malaysia and Thailand and sometime even cheaper.
Yonex rackets, strings and grips are cheaper in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand as well as the shuttlecocks. In Singapore, everything is more expensive compared to the other countries above respectively, and we all know that shop rental, labour and other overhead costs are components of retail selling price. One simply couldn't get away from them.
Yonex strings and grips are cheaper in Malaysia, but racket not really.
Many SG shop can offer same price as Malaysia in a package. Sometime even cheaper.
But they don't do the shuttlecock price benchmark.
