    Default if i have $89-$107USD/$100-$120CAD, which yonex you suggest?

    as the title states, my friend is a complete beginner to badminton and he wants to get a decent/good racket. he said at most he can get one that costs as much as $100-$120CAD, which is $89-$107USD converted.

    this is assuming he will NOT buy online, and will NOT buy used or new from any place online like the BC FS forum. so most likely he will have to buy brand new from a retail store locally in the GTA, Canada (like Sportchek, or some badminton store like Yo's)

    i thought about it, and i guess if he had that kinda money to spend then i suggested to him the MP30. its a great racket to start off with, and you can still use it well even for someone who has a lot of skill.

    btw a random question on the side: has anyone ever deliberately bought a fake just for the heck of it, to see how it feels? i might just do that one day :P

    EDIT: NVM! i just read an old thread about fake rackets breaking at the shaft and flying to the ppl on the other side, killing them. i will just have to assume using a fake feels like S#!@T, and is the most flimsy thing in the world. RIP.

    and if anyone wants that article, here it is:

    no i'm not cuz the paint chips off easily, there's no grip with stock grip and you need double grip to be able to get you're power and control to the racquet to smash and clear plus the original strings are crap cuz you can't smash with them, get yonex bg-65 ti, it gives you a metallic feel and sound when you hit because it's titanium coated

    seriously, i never though sportchek would carry mp77...at least i've never seen it before although they are starting to carry the higher end yonex racquets such as the new at500 and ns6000.

    Does it need to be a Yonex? For $120CAD you can get better quality non-Yonex racquets.

    IMHO, the best value racquet in Canada is still the Carlton Powerblade Superlight that Canadian Tire sells for $50 (that's if you can still find them in stock). I bought 5 of them in the last year, 4 of which I passed on to newbie friends. They are now all intermediates and they still continue to use the racquets. It's almost summer, so CanTire might be reordering a new batch of them for this season.

    Yaa, But the problem if that racquet is that I lend it to my little cousin and he return it in two pieces For beginner just any racquet under $70. As everyone was a beginner one day, I do have many racquet clashes, mis hit etc.
    Sportcheck YY Carbonex 8600?? $54.99.
