    If Im not mistaken, Yonex is already pretty famous. Usually, well-established and famous brands will sign exclusive distributorship deals with other well established companies for each country they intend to penetrate to ensure integrity of their branding and for other different reasons. I suggest you go to your local distributor and negotiate to be a re-seller unless yonex headquarters have a different arrangement with their distributors.

    well, if you are looking for those popular brand, dont go for china product. The China is a good source if you are not looking on the brand or you are trying to manufacture your own brand

    I know how this happen, some people are asking the China's manufacturer to produce the product without brand and send to them, and then they are printing the "brand" in their country and sell them out. Then, the cost will be much cheaper.

    The different of the cost from the distributor mainly sue to the volume

    you can find the distributor of yonex in your country. As you aren't the only importer of yonex. You can purchase these from them instead of finding the sources.

    Yes, finding the distributor is always easy compare to purchase from oversea. The major concern is the pricing if you buy from those distributor
