    Volkl is a readily available brand across Singapore. You'll find them in a lot of the major sporting shops. I've been too long out of the country though to be able to tell you where you might find the best deals. Perhaps jonolau will jump in with some local knowledge.

    There is no longer a Volkl distributor in Singapore.

    You will only find the older models at Queensway Shopping Centre and a few World of Sports outlets.

    very much depends on yr bargaining skills...

    for your reference, a babolat APDC cost about 260SGD thereabout with full poly setup

    u can get them readily @ Queensway shopping centre. No idea where is that?
    flag a cab, and ASK for the meter to be switched on... and say "Uncle, Queensway Shopping Centre, I want to buy sports equipment. Thank you."

    :)

    hope this helps

    Hi Lucu,

    Are you visiting Singapore or do you live there...a friend of mine there has 2 racquets that I'm trying to get back to the States! I'd love to find a way to get them.

    Go to Queensway Shopping Center look for Sportshop 2000. The guy selling the tennis rackets is called Edwin. I think the Fisher baghdatis racket is under $250.

    Aero Pro Drive Cortex is 255
    Aero Pro Drive without Cortex is 235 -> must ask the store person i think they have it in warehouse.
    Pure Drive Cortex is 215
    KSix One Models is 235

    Hmm no bargains already because it is at its lowest selling price. If you go to a bigger store like Royal Sporting House the K factors are selling at S$355. The fisher racket is no tolerance model.

    Go to Sports Interlink also located at Queensway Shopping Centre. They still have some old stock on display. But do note that grip sizes are limited.

    Volkl C-10 Pro 98

    Excellent choice. If you like the Volkl Tour 10 Generation II, you might fall in love with the C-10 Pro 98, which in my opinion has even greater feel, larger sweetspot, and the most control.

    However, I'm in the U.S., so I can't comment on availability in Singapore.

    LOL yeah I can still remember those times where you will get stuck in the jam for 2 to 3 hours, which was in fact just a 30 to 40 mins drive.

    Where is panglima polim? I will be staying in the west side of Jakarta. Do they have a branch there?

    oh no....I do not know my way around in the south side. So they don't have any shops on the west?

    I am not comfortable telling my address in the public forum :grin:

    Btw, is there any good public/private courts that I can book?
