    Default Winex Rackets

    Today I got a look at a T12 Winex racket (I think that was what it was) at a store. I took a few swings, and the racket felt really light and great. It was selling at about 128 dollars CDN.


    But when I went to another store to check out other rackets, the owner at the 2nd store told me that winex rackets are horrible. He said they are nothing but yonex clones and that any company can just get a racket and spray paint over it and you would never know. He also told me a story of once how one of his customers who had a brand new winex racket and how he had broke it with just one smash.

    The owner also told me that winex rackets break easily and not something that should be bought.

    Is it true that winex' aren't as relible and built as yonex rackets are? Or is yonex looked highly upon just because they are a popular company.

    Default Winex racquets reliability

    Hi there,
    I've used Winex racquets for over a year now and have not had any problems with any of their models. The racquets are all strung at 23/24 lbs with Winex Ti-80 string.

    The Ti-12 is a full Ti-mesh slim shaft and is stiff. Players who have used the Ti-12 have found it to be very responsive. I don't use the Ti-12 myself so I cannot give you any review on the racquet. There are no equivalent model in the Yonex product line so it is not a Yonex clone.

    As for the store owner who made those claims about Winex, I can only venture a guess as to his motive. Winex racquets do come with warranty to manufacturer's defects and if that customer has broken the racquet under normal conditions, Winex would be more than happy to replace the racquet.

    Take a look at the other models available, e.g. The Winex Ti Swing Power (re-released as Audina's Limited Edition), the Mighty Muscle 100.

    Hi,
    I usually do not pay much attention about racquets brands or models. I've learned a lot of brands and models in this forum. Having said that it does not mean I don't care to have a good racquet. Good I mean, durable and suits me.

    I've used Winex racquets in the past 7-8 years. I was using them even before coming to Canada. They are old models - SQ500 and SQ600. I string them at 24 lbs, play regularly at least once a week and they are still in very good condition. My cousing also plays regularly and probably more often than I do. He uses Winex SQ500 in the last 5 years and still using it. About Winex being fragile, I can tell you the following: that my cousin has been until now winning all racquets 'duels' in these past 5 years. Yonex racquets were among his 'scalps'.

    I am not suggesting to buy a racquet to clash with your partner's. Only pointing that a less known racquet may not be inferior in quality when compared with a more famous brand. WWC (the name is quite elucidative isn't it?) is Winex local agent and he should have more detail info about the company he represents.

    Hi,
    You can phone Tad's Sporting Goods to get a price quote on those racquets. The Ti Swing Power is available in two versions (SS and SA).

    For those players who like the Yonex ISO-600 or ISO-800, the equivalent Winex clones are also available at Tad's

    For other winex models, please either send me an email or PM me.

    Matt,
    How would you define popular? Yonex, of course, is currently the no. 1 brand probably follow by Carlton. Other brands that comes to mind include Black Knight, Victor, Yang-Yang, Forza. Winex is in the later group.

    I believed that Winex is available in the UK as they have an agent in the UK. Other agents in Europe include Holland, France, Belgium, Denmark.

    i had 2 winex rackets a while ago, 1 was a clone of the yonex Ti-10. Except it was the "improved" version in the form of the T-20.

    My conclusion on using these Winex rackets are that the Winex rackets will never be the original and in this case the original was much better in almost every aspect, feel, power, touch. HOWEVER, this does not mean that all Winex rackets are bad, i also had the T-3. It was a traditional oval head racket and it had nice feel, and sufficient power. This one was by far my more preferred out of the 2.

    Byro is right. Winex rackets are fine rackets in their own rights.

    however, for the "clone" models, do NOT expect them to be identical or even close to their Yonex counterparts.

    Matt,
    If you are planning to turn pro. Why don't you try and contact Winex HQ in Taiwan to see who their agent is in the UK and enquire about a sponsorship package.

    I am currently sponsoring a U16 player who is ranked #1 in his province and #4 nationally in his age group.

    Good luck.

    Default clones

    try to find a racquet that you like and not a racquet that feel like a yonex XX. If u do the latter, it is like letting yonex telling you what u like instead of what u really need. Yes, most clones don't feel exactly like yonex but would you prefer to get 90% of yonex's feels at less than 1/2 of yonex price, and let your skill make up that 10% differences? What happen if you came to dislike that yonex? a big expensive mistake huh?
