    Does anyone know why none of the Yonex strings offered on the TW site are available in reels? I'd love it if the Tour Super 850 stuff came in a reel.

    I asked Yonex about this once, and they said that the home office in Japan wouldn't sell reels over here. It was as if the US Yonex asked the Japan Yonex to ship some reels over and Japan said no. I didn't get an explanation as to why, but I got the distinct impression that it just was not going to happen.

    I don't buy Yonex string any more either. In fact I don't buy singles for demo if it's not also sold on a reel any more.

    That sucks. I'd really like to buy Tour Super 850 Pro in a reel. :(

    I guess I'll just have to keep buying it in the single set packs for now. Maybe I'll e-mail Yonex to get some details.
