    Default Bangkok Rackets

    Hi

    Can anyone recommend a place to buy badminton rackets in Bangkok? I will be visiting in August 2006 and presume that they are cheaper there than in the UK.
    All the reviews I have read talk about Yonex Rackets in Bagkok. I currently use a Carlton Airblade as-ti and am looking for a suitable replacement with similar proporties. I only play doubles and have a good smash but my main game is quick defensive shots.

    I would be grateful for any comments / information

    Cheers

    You'll find loads of info here:

    Though be aware that Yonex has lately come up with strict rules on prices for foreigners... might not get such a good bargain in Thailand any more.

    Hi Craig,

    I am travelling to Bangkok May 22nd 2006 and will be looking to buy a Yonex NS9000X while I am there.... I presently use a Karakal SL80 (paid about 70 for it I think a couple of years ago)

    I hear the NS9000 isn't yet available in Thailand but could well be by the time I arrive at the end of May. If I can't get the 9000, I may look at an alternative Yonex racquet as I don't want to pass-up the opportunity to get a decent Yonex racquet at a vastly reduced price in comparison to the UK (NS9000 has a RRP of 160 in the UK).

    Upon my return from Thailand, I will post my findings in relation to prices and shops to visit.
