    I don't know if BC supports the MUL or not, but I hope you can see it.

    The first store:
    龍騰虎躍: 汀州路三段123號 223676227

    The second store:
    松山: 松山路340號 27626466

    Both address and phone numbers are included.

    One of the worst events by them was stringing the rackets in the wrong sets of holes. For example, if you have a shirt in front of you now, and usually a shirt has many buttons. Then, what will happen if you mis-place the buttons? Left#1 should go to Right #1, L#2 should go to R#2, and so on. If you place L#1 to R#2, L#2 to R#3...and so on, you will have your shirt in the weird way and it's very noticeable.

    What they did is the same. They strung the whole rackets with cross-string running to the wrong hole. (1 hole down at the right side), and they didn't notice until they finished the stringjob.

    To me, as a stringer, this should never happen in any practice, not to mention they are running a business out there. "Careless" is the only word I can describe on this event. I was the one who stood there and watched them done this terrible thing (if my memory is correct, it was on a wilson racket) and I will never bring in any racket to that shop for stringing.

    This is just one story and there are many others.

    I went there last summer.

    You can buy shuttles, shirts, or small things from there as they offer a great selections on accessories. However, when it is related to rackets or strings, I will not recommend them.

    Well, you can always check with Yonex-TW's site for dealer info.

    http://www.yonex.com.tw/

    The site is pretty new and still under construction, but some of the info should be helpful to you. (If you see errors , let me know so I can tell them to fix it)

    The best badminton shop that I have been in Taipei is at Min Shen East Road Section 5. It's a small shop but the service and price are excellent. It's a family run business with dad, mum, son & daughter in law and lots of children normally. Really nice people. Just bough 3x AT800 DF for me and an oversea friend for NTD 3600 each incl. of string (from BG80, BG66, BG65 TI and some new imported Yonex string, which is suitable for high tension). If you buy lots of things, they really give you good discount & freebies. The string job is very good since they use a electronical stringing machine. Will go to find the exact address for you guys.

    It was under development for a long time but never got released. The original designing company had some problems and stopped the development. However, the database is still somewhat weird and the site needs more work. Make sure you call before you go or the address on file could be out-dated.


    The site finally went online couple weeks ago and the updating is still undergoing.
