    I am planning a trip to Jakarta early next month and would appreciate information on any tennis proshops that are worth visiting. Are tennis racquets more expensive in Indonesia?

    "metro tennis" in panglima polim is probably the best shop in jakarta.
    they carry wilson, babolat, yonex..... including strings such as luxilon, babolat gut.......

    tennis racquets in indonesia is a little bit more expensive than in us, but i would say it is quite reasonable. however, gut is very expensive

    Back in 1980s, my uncle was a collector of tennis rackets. One of his favorite place was Metro tennis shop in Pasar baru. Once my uncle wanted to buy a POG. SInce the owner knows him well, he always asked him "do you want the real POG or the fake version"?

    You have to know how to identify the genuine item if you want to buy in Asia

    Why not just buy from TW?
