    Then let her cool off.

    If she still doesn't understand, then ... well, then I feel for ya.

    Well, you know the ball's in your court. You got to go with your friend and get the new racquet. Get that done fast, show her the new racquet (and the old one as well, if possible) and learn to say "No" the next time around. You got to show her that she can trust you to do the right thing.

    I'm going to on Monday which is when I'm going and hoping to see my friend. Later today, I did some researching and the only sporting goods store I can find is called "Impulse Sports" in Richmond. Including tax and stringing its around $303.99. Right now, I can't sleep because of this; I just keep on thinking of how idiotic of me for doing that. I should of known better. You could say that I said "Yes" so I wouldn't get looks or hard feelings and now its worse than that. But this is part of life experience isn't it....

    i notice in your profile that you're female, playing with plastic birds

    may i ask what level? beginner, intermediate, high level?

    reason i ask is that the ns9900 racket is too stiff for beginner, especially female beginner

    so... this may be a good time to change to a more appropriate racket for you
    something more flexible

    eg. Arcsaber 9, it's in pink too!

    Yes I may be a female but I dislike pink very much. I rarely play with feathered birds because the ones that my mom bought twirl in the air so I don't use them often. And as for my level you could say I'm intermediate now. Beginner means still learning the basics of badminton right?

    lol, ok, no pink then

    so, ok go for another ns9900 then

    have you checked out tad's sports at granville and 70th?
    http://tadssports.ca/ (their website is currently down due to maintenance)

    they have the most competitive prices around for racket sports

    i believe their prices include stringing and they give a 10% discount if you mention you're a member of this forum!

    that should save your friend some $, right?

    i'm not sure... $220, i seem to remember

    if that includes strings, and 10% discount on top of that

    that would make it $200 before tax, strings included?

    Max sports are an authorized dealer for Yonex, in Toronto. They are very well known and have a good reputation. Their price includes string, stringing, taxes and shipping. I think the NS9900 is listed at $260. Here is the link if you wish

    It's actually $250 at max sports, and it's free shipping too for orders over $200! So maybe you could look into that since you live in vancouver.
