TADS on 70th avenue and Granville

Look for Garry he will give you a better deal. Also you could trade in your old racket as well as try the rackets first before you buy.

Hope it helps

Fake rackets is usually shipped or bought with string attached. Since they need to this so that the racket wont break when the buyer ask for a higher tention.

Legit one comes unstrung

Tad's always has the best deals regularly, they don't have much markup on some of them

^Wow, hard to find that anymore......Did you call Tad's, Abby's, SE? If not, then it's going to be hard to find unless you buy it on forums (Badminton Central) and get it to ship to you.

I think Tads is out of it..SE might have it, but might be expensive because they always rape their prices.

I didn't know about Tad but thanks to google I found them and called Gary. Tad has the Arc Saber 10 PG in stock but they are unable to match the promotion in the states with limited edition 6-racket bag free with purchase and a lot of e-tailers also give you complementary gifts like free string upgrade of your choice as well as free shuttle like Aero Club 05 - all at the same cost as Tad's except you need to pay s/h to get it delivered.

Is Gary sponsoring any forum and has like a 10% or 15% discount for members?

Thanks!

Yes, I think Tad's still has 10% off for Badminton Central members. Not sure.

Also, with those promotions, the shipping and handling costs might cost a lot which would probably break even with what they give you.

Tad's is probably the best badminton/tennis specialist shop in Vancouver IMO.
