I play in a community hall in Kota Kinabalu.
I use Proace Titanium Dream... been thru 3 of the same racket.
It's still my favourite.
Use to kena racket poison and buy anything that tickles my fancy and sell them when I get bored with them. :HammerHead:

Wah... All lcw edition very expensive... My fren bought lcw edition of shoe also cost him rm350.

Where normally ppl play in shanghai, Indoor stadium? Community hall? Purposes built sport centre? Sports club?
How much is the rental?

I seen many Chinese players in KL (those who work at embassy) playing at kg pandan...
None of them are good, average lower skill than Malaysian
how's the player in shanghai? Are they good?

Not so expensive lah.... the AT70 I bought was a mid-range model.. only about RM40 extra for the LCW model compared to the standard AT70. Bought it coz no stock available for the standard AT70 at the time...

Rental around CNY30-50/hour depending on the places for small indoor court near residential area. I come up top against my Chinese colleagues here and so far, I have yet to see many good players around.

Probably the places I play are for casual players only and maybe the pros play elsewhere. I also notice in KL, those playing in the sports centre are much better players than those here.

LCW n top players play with 30lbs my fren....
i prefer to play with 28lbs.... but cant afford to change string too often.... and racket also can be broken easily
lower to 24-25lbs.... too bad.... my shots just not going to the way i want....
so now settle with 26-27lbs....

Yep.... pro players mostly string above 30lbs... IMO, anyone who string above 26lbs must be quite good!!! You prefer single or double game?

Khoo n tan same old problem
no international top pair loose point in long row like they do
game 1 leading 11-9 then 11-17
game 2 leading 17-14 then 17-20
proof one thing, lack of concentration

pak joo bong did it again

anyway, Harada is insanely good tonight, no one can return tan smashes so well!!!
