    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?
    They give a discount for being a member of BC ? How come I haven't seen this before
    Good luck in getting the new racket, Dorythefish, report back when you get it.

    Have to wait until Monday to tell my friend where to buy it and how much. Should I charge him $302 (this is how much it costs plus stringing and taxes at Impulse Sports at Aberdeen, Richmond) or $225 (the price for the NS9900 at Tad's Sporting Goods).

    I might just stick to places I can buy on the spot instead of shipping and everything else.

    So the $225 includes stringing but is there a 10% discount for being a member of this forum? If you look on the right side of their front page website, there is a mention of this discount.

    Of course you should only charge the actual price. You have to show your friend the receipt don't you?

    The problem is that I bought the racquet in Hong Kong at Rose Sports Goods. I don't know how much it was. But right know Impulse Sports does not have any in stock at the moment while Tad's Sporting Goods does.

    Hmmm, how much is it now in HK anyways, especially given the high Canadian $ relative to HK $ ?

    Know of anyone travelling to HK in the next little while? Maybe they can get it for you if it's much cheaper there.

    Right now 1 Canadian dollar equals around 7 Hong Kong Dollar.

    Yes I do but my friend is paying for the new racquet so I might stick with him buying it in Canada. So my mom won't start yelling at me again.

    hmm, aside to the price/where-to-buy discussion, I would like to tell this:

    As many other items you own, breaking it down, a racket is nothing but a object of utility. There's always a certain extra value to things if you got them as a gift or saved up to it a long time. So there's indeed reason to have a certain "worship" for the racket you own. I read so much "to get one with the racket", "extension of the arm".. Fortunately, a racket is something that can be replaced when it's broken. somewhen, any racket will brake, be thankful for it to have served you good, be thankful for it beeing presented to you. a racket breaking to early is mere bad luck, no matter if you lend it to someone or not.
    it's pretty much the same for shuttles; who will complain about a broken shuttle, if it's ready to be tossed?
    As for the shuttles and the racket, you and your mother can be really glad, that the equipment you got has served you and your friends to have fun on court. whether it's broken in the end or not, doesn't matter so much, especially if your friend is willing to replace it. serial number 10004 or 10005 don't make that of a difference, is it? the fun of playing is the gift from your mom, not the racket.

    things are there to use, cheers,

    spot

    it's not so much as being dramatic. Its just that if he doesn't get me another one, then i have to play with a slazenger one which has a heavy head and a t bone which i really dislike.

    Actually the one you should thank most is your friend, as he's the one who truly is being very nice to replace the broken racket for you. It is in actions such as these that you can tell a good friend from just a regular friend.
