Try get them to return emails. I've been waiting nearly two weeks.
Hey Kwun, anyone reputable and who knows how to use email in the US who has them?
The Poms are pissing me off.

Thinking about whether I should get the Elite or the Tour.
I already have the Firebalde Elite, so I may actually want to try the Tour since I play more and more doubles these days.

Alrighty, so I called up centralsports.co.uk and got some guy on the other end of the phone that seemed to not be aware that it says on their website (or anything else for that matter):
"We are currently only processing online orders for delivery to the UK & Channel Islands but we do deliver internationally so please call or email for a quote."
Which I thought was funny because I've emailled them 4 times in the past 13 days asking for a quote.The guy was completely clueless, so I just went online and placed an order anyway, with shipping to my Aunty in the UK. He said that wasn't possible because the Mail-To and Bill-To addresses have to be the same, but their online card processing system didn't seem to care about that.
So, If it all works out, in a couple of weeks I will have scored a couple of Vapour Trail Tours with BG80 and Karakal PU grips for AUD190/USD155/SGD223 a pop.....and if not I'll probably spend the next year of my life getting my money back!
Watch this space....

48hrs......no confirmation email. I'd be surprised if my order even gets processed.

5 days now.....nuthin'

Okay, we have an email!
So, be warned - CentralSports CANNOT process credit cards not from the UK, so if you live outside the UK, the only way to order from them is to get a relative or friend who does live in the UK to send them to you.
So I cancelled my order...
....and bought two VT Tours from a powerseller on eBay instead!
Price is a smidge higher, but they will ship globally via DHL, and hey, at least you can actually buy from them!
I'll report back again once they arrive. Quoted time is 4 days....

Carlton Vapour Trail Tour
I'm really curious as to how this racket feels. I've always been a Yonex fan and bought many top of the range YY rackets. But recently I bought Carlton Fireblade Elite (oval head) and fell in love with it instantly. It feels so light and powerful yet controllable I've abandoned my Arc 10, NS9900, Cab 21s and bought 3 Fireblade Elites.
Now this optimetric head shape seems to me like an in between isometric and oval head shape. Isometrics have a 33% bigger sweetspot whilst in my opinion oval head shapes have much less drag and a smaller BUT more powerful sweetspot. Does this mean that the optimetric headshape represent the best of both shapes?
If anyone has this racket please can you post your review??

FFS, there's comparos on the previous pages.

Hope it doesn't mean what I think it does.
I would like to know how the VT Tour felt like in comparison to the Fireblade Elite, NOT the VP Elite, unless I've missed something, I don't it's on previous pages.
If you genuinely want to help you can kindly direct me to the page if not, you need not get yourself irrate and be disrespectful, it'll only reflect badly on yourself.

Respect is earned, and ah well, you need to be more accurate in your product descriptions. "would you know how the Vapour Trail Tour compares against the Elite?" can be easily 'misinterpreted'. There is a VT Elite too you know. Be more succinct.
I'd recommend you look at the VT Elite specs back on page 2 I think, and see how that compares to the FB Elite. Good place to start eh?
07-07-2009, 07:47 AM #135
Also, why you recommending me to compare VT Elite with FB Elite? I don't care about the VT Elite. I've read on the specs of the VT Elite and its nothing like the FB Elite in any case, so it's pointless. A good place to start is on your head, get it checked out for any remote chance of the capacity to show logical reasoning.
You know you really are more than you're worth.

"why would I want to compare a racket which I didn't say I have....with the VT Tour?"
You're asking me to exhibit logic? You were not clear which "Elite" you wanted to compare, and now you're trying to tell me that people only want comparisons between a racket they own and one they don't? Like people never ask for comparisons between two rackets both of which they don't own?
Anyway, despite being that you live in a city where you can actually go into a shop and buy the ****in' things and the rest of us don't, I'll do your homework for you. You know, because I'm a caring, generous individual -
Vapour Trail Tour
Weight (unstrung): 84 grams
Flex: Medium stiff
Balance: Medium balance
Vapour Trail Elite
Weight (unstrung): 89 grams
Balance: Head Heavy
Weight (unstrung): 84grams
Balance: Head Heavy
Flex: Extra Stiff
So buggered if I know where you get the idea that the VT Elites are "nothing like the FB Elite" because they look on paper to be the same concept - head heavy, stiff singles biased rackets. colekwok on page 7 of this thread suggests the naming regimen of the 'Blades' is continued in the 'Vapour Trails' and this seems the case.
Kwun has played with both the VT Elite and Tour - scroll back a few pages and read what he reckons.
