    Um, it went from 1/31 to 2/25. What happened?

    I had my demo order in last week that included this frame, the 330g version and a couple others. It was supposed to ship today, but now it looks like I'll have to wait four more weeks?

    Not mad, just disappointed. I feel like a kid on Xmas morning learning that the one gift I wanted was backordered...

    I called Yonex last Thursday. A customer service employee from Yonex told me that they were waiting for rackets from Japan. The employee told me they expect rackets in two weeks aprox. I called TW and informed the situation.

    McLovin,

    Unfortunately, Yonex had some unexpected delays with their racquets and were unable to ship them when expected. The new date of 2/25 is the correct updated date for when they should be in stock. We are sorry for the delay and any confusion.

    Thanks,
    Brittany, TW

    Hope Yonex does not have another unexpected delay. Some of us are eager to buy a few.:)

    By past experience, could they be in stock before the scheduled date. That is, they are meant to be in stock Feb. 25th, could they be in stock before? I am not anxious to get the racket, I am just asking.:)

    Boricua,

    The in stock date is normally pretty accurate within a +/- 3 day range.

    Blitzball,

    Yes, we are reviewing this racquet. The video should be up a couple days after the racquet is in stock. The written will follow in 1-2 weeks.

    Hey Brittany,

    Is the release date of 2/25 still on schedule? And will the demos be available before/on/after the release date? I believe my demo order is still in the queue, and as far as I can tell, the other 3 demo frames are in stock. I placed it on Jan 23rd and can give the order # if needed.

    Thanks.

    McLovin,

    Yes, the in stock date is still scheduled for 2/25. If we hear differently from Yonex, we will update the date. As for demos, we will be receiving the demo racquets on 2/25 so it could take potentially a couple days to get the demo racquets strung and ready to ship out.

    Brittany, TW

    Well, they must have arrived earlier, because I got this yesterday:
    It has already shipped & will be here Tuesday. It's like Christmas in February...

    McLovin,

    Yes, they came a couple day earlier than expected. I did however say it can range from +/- 3 days of date so technically I just squeaked by! :)

    Enjoy your new demos!
