Johnny it's a good chance you contact achoomai via PM.
He owns a lovely TT store at Ramintra(close to Fashion Island mall).  Guys over-there are great players you would enjoy.PS  I cannot promise a beer session after TT session, lolz.

It's on the "places to go list". Tenergy for 50USD is unheard of, not even in HK, and even their Tibhar Evolution prices are a bit cheaper than my usual HK shops (albeit just by a couple dollars). I will post my experience here after-it's the right thing to do!

What can I say, the land of a thousand smiles has been very good to me. My wife and I have gone sightseeing, eaten delicious Thai food, and have visited a few TT shops! A special shout out to forum member Crowsfeather who I've been communicating via PM with; he has given me some great tips and information. The Bang Wa shop indeed has great service, and good prices. Butterfly Thailand (corporate office) changed locations recently, they are now a bit farther from Silom but it's just a few minutes via Taxi. The staff was very helpful and patient while I criteriously weighed, inspected (I bring my own digital calipers and portable digital jewelry scale) and bounce tested SEVERAL blades before selecting a few.

Stopped by a couple more shops, one with great experience and the other a total letdown. So it goes!

I'll be offering some Butterfly items for sale soon-I've bought a few nice blades thanks to this forum so now's my turn to pay it fwd so to speak!

Pics coming in a few days when I'm finished travelling, or if one of the members here can post for me I'll happily send some pics via email so you can post here.

I'm so sorry I could meet you on that Sat, SS shop is closed anyway.
BTW, there is national cup at Fashion island this weekend sat/sun.
Top national/ pro players will be there.

Johnny2WL, you sound so inspiring. Can you please share a bit more details like, addresses , brands,some prices. Ill be there 6 days in the beginning of February and will be more than happy to visit at least one shop. Prior BK I'll be visiting Kuala Lumpur for couple of days and plan to see a shop there as well(Lucky Sports) Ill be glad if someone could share some thoughts about prices of tt goods in both KL and BK. I'll be staying on Rambuttri Banglumpoo Pranakorn, BK and in Melange Boutique hotel in KL

Johnny, if you wanna buy cheap but quality clothes for your wife, try platinum plaza. In front of that on the 2nd floor they sell very delicious rice noodles (stir fried). Also, the pork jerky they sell in that area are good too.

Anyway, the last time in BK I visited a small shop, too small to reward the efforts to find it.......
