    Default Overprice at Rackets and Runners

    You can call around to get a general idea of prices, then compare with Rackets and Runners. Their tennis grips are about CAD 1.50 more than other places, and rackets (depending on model) are maybe CAD 20 more, I think.

    my friend went to clearone but their inventory is VERY limited.
    impulsesports is the WORST possible place to buy ANYTHING because their entire store is overpriced. i hope they go bankrupt .

    i recommend TADS. i got some of my strings there and a stress-ball to exercise ma wrist. also their rackets and birdies r at a reasonable price and u can bargain for the more expensive items(not including birdies and strings, just rackets)

    It's been discussed many times before... try the search engine. If not successful... try using the advance options in the search engine.

    Default Good Baddy Shops in Vancouver worth Visiting?

    3RD TIME AND IT CAME UP WIH A FATAL MEMORY ERROR IN THE BROWSER

    *expletive* IT






    insert expletives

    2nd time and it didnt work


    stupid... it took me 15 minutes to type a post and when i clicked post, it just told me to log in again and i lost my whole post...

    okay here i go

    im going to vancouver on monday from victoria. intending to go to some badminton shops to get some nice string (bg66 plz) and a new racquet (mp99 nebody?)

    any shops in vancouver worth visiting? im looking for good selection (more than just yonex, plz have diff brands), cheap prices, and a good stringing policy (good record 2)

    ive been to impulse sports i was just visiting and i saw a nice selection of racquets, but i found them a bit expensive and they only had yonex.

    anybody have shops in vancouver with cheap prices, and nice selection and friendly salesmen?

    ps.

    fierce competition for the money:

    mp99 vs mp100 vs ns7k ns8k sl70 vs cab30 (ms/sp)

    as for the mp99

    g4 g5?
    3u 4u?

    3u= too head heavy now?
    4u=loss of power?

    g4=too head heavy and a bit too large with karakal pu grip
    g5=too teeny? and loss of power?

    any advantages over the other racquets vs mp99? i have a mp66 but it has some limits

    big grip (g3)
    extremely handle heavy
    psychological effects (used too long)

    strings? bg66 for repulsion paired with mp99? 23 pounds okay (1 pound over limit, will they still let me under the stringing policy?)

    regards,

    jc

    (im typing this in shorthand and without punctuation in fear of the login time limit... ill copy and paste this whole message just in case...)

    oh and also what do you think of cab20 series? (cab21 22 etc) i know somebody here is going to persuade me into a cab...

    A search will yield your answers.

    In Vancouver, perhaps the most selection you'll find is at Tad's Sporting Goods, located at Granville and 70th. Do a search for their hours and phone number.

    Cheapest? Perhaps at Tad's (retail).

    Another place is at ClearOne in Richmond. Also Racket's and Runners but their prices are over-priced, guaranteed, and by a lot too.

    No need for apologies ... In the near future, you'll be helping someone else with their "Where in Vancouver can I buy ....?" cause these question come up often enough.

    Save your trip to Abbies... they have mostly soccer and baseball paraphernalia. The baddy section is pretty much limited to the top of the lines. Last time I checked, they have no CABS there. Oh, and don't get your stringing done there.

    There are a few stores I would trust my racquet with them, but it's easier for you to ask around where you usually play. Most regular players have their own personal stringer to go to.
