    Mizuno rackets are available in the Philippines. Unfortunately, the Tetracross series are not available here. The GP series are sold here. I had a GP-7 (broken) and now I use a GP-9. I'm tempted to buy the GP-10 but I've sworn off buying rackets. They are uniformly priced at about US$100.00.

    I alternately use my GP-9 and my YY Cab30.

    When I purchased it, last two weeks, after I convert to MYR, it becomes MYR660. But hardly to believe, when I just check right now, 20217yen equal to MYR773!!!.My God! MYR become weaker day by day


    Same price I convert to Singapore dollar, equal to SGD322.97. But not sure the shipping charge are the same or not.

    While the other economies are in recession.. Japan still is keeping up. The Japanese yen became twice as strong as two months ago, compared to the New Zealand dollar. Now is not the right time to buy goods from Japan, but again.. now is the right time to buy the TC700 before it's too late

    They're sold only in Mizuno stores. They have two stand alone stores and have stores in some of the bigger malls. Retails for about PhP 4,500.00 which is actually less than US$100.

    btw, I asked for a discount when I bought my shoes and racket. They took 5% off.

    I could not resist temptation.

    I ordered two Mizuno racquets:
    -1x Mizuno Tetracross 700 2UG5 ( the 3U's were out of stock )
    -1x Mizuno GP 10 3UG5.

    The racquets were on sale, 50% off and 35% off respectively at shuttle-cock.com; but unfortunately for most members of BCBF, that shop does not accept payment by creditcard which means that they also do not ship their equipment overseas .

    The total price was 30950yen, including the two racquets, the stringing fees, the strings ( BG66S ), the delivery fees and the service fee.

    I had them sent to my relative's house in Japan, so it's all good for now.

    The 2U TC700 sounds like a beast. The 50% discount was just unavoidable.
    I have no problems playing with my heavily modified AT700 even-balanced "2U" ( It was 3U, but I taped the frame and put plasticine inside the wooden handle ) which feels heavier than my CAB8 2U, so I guess that I'll get used to the TC700 2U quickly. The only set-back is the stiffer shaft.

    I can not wait till I get to use it.

    Some images you may want to see.


    Translation: The "Yonrin" shaft doesn't flatten, thus the head "runs". (swings with excellent feel)

    Note: "Yonrin" = four-axis.

    The "yonrin" shaft does not flatten, thus the shaft's 'feel' gets transferred directly to the head upon striking the shuttle.

    "More feeling", "The shaft doesn't flatten ( doesnt lose its feel )", "stable".


    Self explanatory



    New-design: Aerobox frame.

    "Power-bulge frame-sides": There are bulges at the side of the frame to enhance the racquet's stability and minimizes energy loss. The "yonrin" shaft's power gets transferred directly to the entire frame.
    Note: This is pretty much like Muscle-Power frame by Yonex.

    The "Yonrin" shaft maximizes the racquet's potential power.
    The TC500/700 has "Carbon Nano Tube" in the whole of the frame, which enhances the frame's ability to transfer power and also the durability is enhanced.
    However, "Carbon Nano Tube" transfers energy too rapidly, thus the "Yonrin" shaft's high/long energy transference makes use of the CNT frame to maximize the power given off by the racquet upon impact with the shuttle.

    Hope this all made sense.
