Still good -- amazingly, not one bad tube. I stocked up and carefully stored them as soon as they closed up shop here, now I am down to the last two tubes.
I've seen the Prince Tour Extra Duty available through distributors other than TW. Prices are similar to Penn Marathon, which I guess I will have to try sooner or later. I played the Yonex Tours in Japan and really like them -- they do not appear to be distributed in the USA and shipping from the UK or Japan is prohibitively expensive.
