Crap.. $50 for shipping... sort of a rip off there.
I don't know if it is that much......
If the package is $399 and he paid about 450 total and there has been no mention of tax, I can only assume that $50 went to shipping. If that's the case, it's rather steep for shipping.
$50 shipping, is express or what?
I was also offered a deal from them but they did not realise I was from Australia (I was offered US preferred players package) so she contacted the Australian rep for me but still no reply in a week!
if you order the package, there is no tax...
i just paid 50 as an estimation for shipping since i didnt want to use a credit card
Oh. They don't give you an exact price quote? That seems strange.
well they just charge whatever price for shipping on your credit card.....
yes it is a bit strange because of the fact that the form itself doesnt mention the price for shipping and handling...
And you did not inquire? I hope they refund you some of that $50 because there's no way the 3 racket package should cost $50 to ship.
not yet. i needed the rackets asap, so i thought sending that amount of shipping should speed up the processes....
Which racquet did you pick btw?
the biomimetic 300 tour....
Cool. What were you using before?
Nice thats what i got too lol cause the 200 isnt comin out till febuary
so what packet and rackets did you guys picked, or going to pick?
300 tour (two racket pack) with 17 gauge black widow :twisted:
Tempted to get either the 3 racket or 5 racket deal. For the latter don't really need 5 rackets nor 2 reels, but a reel alone is 170 for Black Widow so it would seem a good deal. Racquet in question would be the Bio 300.
However, with that said, don't really need to switch racquets. Just tempting since when I demoed the 300 and 300 Tour, the 300 was really nice.
What do you use currently?
i used the yonex rdis 200 before....
the 300 tour has a lot more control
Darn. I have 2 RDiS 200 I'm trying to unload.
Using KBlade 98
I'm suprised you didnt like the 300 tour then
It felt dead when I tried it. Maybe it was the string setup, though I tried the 300 with the same strings. The 300 felt crisper to me.
What string was it?
Dunlop Silk 16. They were demos from TW when they first came out.
Oh i see. I didn't really like that string to be honest :???: the demo i had had black code 17 gauge and it was super slick it had a nice almost like yonex springy feel to it once my swing was up which appealed to me
The sweet spot also seemed a bit small on the Tour compared to the 300. It just felt more solid on contact.
Interesting...... How did it do in terms of spin?
Liked the 300 more as well. I'll probably try to demo them again before making a decision as it is a rather large investment. And again.. don't really need to switch frames.
Yeah. Did the oval shaped heads irk you at first?
Maybe? It just didn't seem to feel right. I had an acquaintance who also uses a KBlade 98 and he said the 300 felt more comfortable in his hands than the Tour granted he hit w/ neither one of them; it felt better to him is what he said.
Hmmm interesting it was a toss up when i chose the killer for me was the work and required the lead the 300 up matched and that i had never hit with them before oh well
What were you using before?
And my KBlades have added weight to them as well. Definitely will demo again as the demos were 3/8 and I hit with 1/2. Feel like that will also make a difference.
From what I remember, the stock 300 hit amazing off my fh wing and was off on the bh. Tour hit average for everything - nothing stood out.
I use a HEAD microgel Radical MP weighted to 12.4 oz strung with a 5/8 grip
you string your racquets with a 5/8 grip?:twisted:think about that for a second
what do you find the Tour offers that the Radical doesn't
Its feels more appealing and it serves much better. The radical wasn't amazing on serve
Lol that is pretty funny i should clarify the grip size is 5/8
Let me know when you receive the package. Would love to see pics, especially of the bag.
Ok i will shoot you an email once i do
I emailed for a shipping quote. It's:
$15 for 2 rackets
$20 for 3 rackets
$25 for 5 rackets
Along with an estimated 1 week delivery time.
Hmmm interesting i hope mine gets here before friday :???:
Didn't order. Going to demo again later on to see if I really want to switch. Hoping TheBoom gets his stuff soon. Really want to see it.
TheBoom, has it arrived yet?
Not yet they said it would ship last friday or last monday so i'm expecting today tomorrow or monday
post pics when it comes! I am going to demo as soon as I take my SAT (saturday) and order as fast as I can
Dunlop has the right people on board. Verdasco, Meltzer, Almagro, and Robredo are still in the AO!!! Best wishes to them!
Two of them are probably about to lose soon though
Oh well its still cool they pick quality players and don't have to sponsor everyone in order for people to see their stuff
Today should be the day right?
