Racket prices in Vietnam
My aunt is going to Vietnam next week for Xmas and I'm planning to buy a few rackets over there since I heard their badminton rackets are cheaper there. Can somebody in Vietnam give me an idea on how much these following rackets cost?
1. Yonex Armortec 700 (or an 800-OF)
2. Yonex Carbonex 20
3. Yonex Nanospeed 9000 (either version)
4. Yonex Muscle Power 99
Also, Can anyone recommend some good rackets from proace or apacs or sotx or any of those asian brands that we can't find in Canada? I've heard they are alot cheaper then yonex but the same racket basically?
Thanks in advance.

Where in VN is she going to? To the South or the North? Hanoi or HoChiMinh city?
Personally, I suggest not buying any Yonex in VN b/c: first,the price is stupidly wrong, and second, fakes everywhere. Unless ur aunt is badminton pro, there might be no chance that she would spot reals and fakes. I went on a hunt for YY rackets a few months ago in VN, in both HN and HCM city, digging up every sports shop hoping to get a bargain, but didnt work out. Instead i got a fake Yonex AS50 shuttle tube for less than £3, and several Victor No3 shuttle for £3/tube each.
Apart from YY, buying other brands should be a bargain. Try Proace 1000 sweetspot, they sell ProAce everywhere in VN, real ones but you have to know the shops. It is very Good value for money brand.
SOTX, Victor,RSL would be other easy-to-find brands in VN. Kason,Gosen are, too. I regreted not buying any of them.
South East Asia is heaven for getting good and unique rackets for good price, but you have to know where to buy.

thx. My aunt is not even close to a badminton pro lol but ya I would like to stay away from the yonex brands and go for the other types. She is goin to south and north Vietnam and is there a site where I can get the details of proace/RSL/Kason/Gosen rackets? Thx very much
O, also, what are the some of the good stores names and locations in Vietnam and if you can give me a price either in vietnamese currency or US would be much appreciated. Thx again

Hi,ProAce would cost around $120 for the very expensive one in VN and less,as far as I know. ProAce actually produce their rackets in VN.
this is the shop i often buy badminton equipment from. They offer very good pricefor ProAce. The shop is very popular among badminton players in HCMC. This is the address:
"SPORTS SHOP QUANG Address:
360 Nguyễn Trọng Tuyển, P.2, Q. Tân B́nh,tpHCM
Phone: (08)8424684 - Mobile : 0913.715015 - FAX: (08)9970389"
Aks the shop if they have any other brands like Kason/RSL/Gosen... You should have good prices for these rackets.

Hi, I'm Saigonese so all the infos below are links to this biggest city of Vietnam:
* Most popular:
ProAce are everywhere, oldest series (Cab 20, 25) ~ US$ 20. 0ld series (Sweetspot 800,900,950,1000,2000) are cheap ~ US$ 42 - 85. Newer series (Platinum) ~ US$ 45 - 95. Those ABSs cost from US$ 78 - 110, but harder to find.
My recommendation is the shop 'Hoang Tien' , on the Tran Huy Lieu street; very close to the intersection of Huynh Van Banh. If fortunate enough, you will chance to have yours being strunged by Mr Hoang (the owner, the very famous players in Vietnam 5 years ago,).
* Main stream: Yonex, distributed by Sun Rise lte. Expensive, but not proffesional in services.
* Minority trends are : Finnex, Wilson, RSL, Gosen, Kason, Fleet, Carslon.
* Amazingly stupid price: Babolat, Dunlop.
* Haven't witnessed (just had rumors): Victor, Ashaway.
