    I have used the Electre vp Blue and tbh was not impressed - maybe it just didn't suit my style of play. A friend i used to play with til he staryted playing higher level then me was sponsored by them. I used his ashaway electre vp purple but can't recall the racket... the clothing he got was quite good although seemed maybe to be copying yonex....

    Lots of my friends use Ashaway. Next time I go to badminton club (Saturday), I'll ask them what they think of them and if I can have a hit.

    are you looking at a certaion racket?
    i advise searching, because i remember at least 1 extremely long Ashaway review
    about a Ti racket. well written and informative, i cannot guarantee.

    i have tried a couple of the ashaway rackets, namely aerotec 900 technique (clone of at900t), nano legend 9675 (96hole racket) and ribtec 88 nano (88hole racket). all these are nice decent rackets esp the aerotec 900 which can defend quite well. the ribtec 88 has decent power too. all 3 rackets that i've tried are imho better than those from apacs...at least the ashaway are not so light weight and dont have the hollow feel...just my s$0.0002

    I've tried Ashaway Nano Kevlar 200.. excellent feel IMO.

    Nanolegend 9675, its string bed is so dense. the string bed feels 2lbs tighter than what it's strung to.

    Ashaway tends to copy Yonex and Forza alot, but they're not that bad at all. They perform quite well, and they're definitely worth the money.

    Copying two of the best brands in badminton can't exactly be a bad thing. Come on, it got all of the Clonex brands where they are now. Apacs rackets are used by loads of people on these forums.

    yes, the string bed of the 9675 is dense. i was recommended to string the racket 5lbs less than the usual weight, ie normal tension of 24lbs = actual strung weight of 19lbs on the 9675 racket.

    I said "they're not bad at all" .. I find that Ashaway racquets are easier to use than Yonex racquets.. The NS9K clone is very maneuverable and quite powerful too.. Ashaway racquets feel quite solid, I'm liking them.

    Ashaway rackets are good! Unlike apacs where you can find sharp grommets that cuts your string. Ashaway paint jobs are also better then apacs. Besides cloning Ashaway do have their own range of products too! I dont think the ribtec 88 is a clone right? I have the nanoforce 9000 and ribtec 88. The nanoforce 9000 is very manuverable and the ribtec 88 is good for generating power. But then again.. what i find good doesnt apply to everyone...

    Ashaway is quite good imo. Their own line of racket has a good finishing too. Wish to try the ribtec series racket.

    Actually i am now in perth and it seems that it is very hard to get other racket and i found a Ashaway dealer here so i am looking at the Kevlar 7000s ....

    On the other hand i have also manage to get Apacs AMP 95 and i saw that its review are very good ....

    If you guys have personal experience about the kevlar 7000s please share .....

    I would love to know the overall quality of Ashaway too as i dun see a lot of review with their racket which you guys have shared and thank a lot .....

    i wouldn't say that ashaway 'clone' rackets like apacs do. as mentioned above, i think they just take a few ideas from here and there. very repuatable brand here in the uk, great string especially.
