Oh nevermind, i decided to buy NEW APACS NANO 900 POWER RED AND FINAPI 88 BADMINTON
I probably purchase expensive ones because of more feedback and %99 of them're positive.
Thanks for advice again, i hope our new racquets would be comfortable and durable.

I assume, both of them have same quality, same strings and grips. Meh, it should not be hard to decide from that point

So i can buy Yonex Iso 22 or MP2 models (probably Iso 22 prefer) for 50$.
Or can buy Apacs racquets for 75$ (shipping) plus Strings.
So if Yonex's cheap models (like Iso 22) are durable, especially shaft, i dont want to pay double money since i am not advanced player.
Otherwise, i will purchase Apacs and new strings because these racquets not have shaft (1 piece) and better material.

it's made in China and pretty low model
yes it's 2 piece racket (head and shaft seperate)
the worst thing? those two are not even graphite racket (the head is aluminium and the shaft is steel)
have you ever heard someone died because his friend accidentally hit his head with aluminium racket and the racket broken, the shard went into his head and he died instantly? (I did not make up this story, it's real)
one piece racket is better than 2 piece racket.. why? because 2 piece racket really prone to rotation
while one piece racket can maintain it's shape, the 2 piece is unstable when you rotate the racket, or when you swing it
I remember my friend had a steel racket and the racket head BEND forward (makes the head like this "\" not straight "|")
it will not gonna happen on one piece graphite racket (such as apacs that I show you)
anyway, you can get those two Yonex for $42 (from badmintonalley.com)
go for apacs rackets, they have much better quality than those two Yonex (at least it's graphite racket and one piece)

you need small amount of sacrifice to get it done
in US labor cost alone is around $10 (if you bring your own string)
if you really think you want a new string straight away, then that is the only solution
or maybe you are not looking into it hard enough. even in Newcastle (small city) I could find at least one stringer (even though it is kinda far)
usually any sport shop (that sells badminton racket) could string it for you (but you need to be aware, don't let them to use tennis machine for your badminton racket as badminton racket is more delicate than tennis racket) ask if they have 6 point machine (a special badminton machine with 6 support) 4 is fine if you don't use high tension, AVOID 2 point machine

Well, they are not the lowest, but kinda okay? For example: Victor Super Waves 37, 380RM? That is kinda good price?
Could you recommend some shops (with international shipping)?

they are legit seller (my sister bought an MX80 for me before, but she went to his store straight away in HK)
the SW37 price in shubuy.com is US$114 (compared to SW37 in the website that you give me is around $123)
but you need to see how much they charge for handling and shipping fee..

I'd buy there, but the shipping costs to Switzerland are 100$

Yeah in Hong Kong dollars probably
