    :D Wanted to add I also happened to come across another male "pro" using the FB and you can be pretty sure he isn't supplied with special rackets: (normally) Slovak national MS (and currently MD) champion Jarolim Vicen. Still proudly wielding a Voltric ZF 12 months ago but currently playing with FB ... (and ARC10 before VTZF)
    Of course a whole different level but just to illustrate it is not an entirely unthinkable switch.

    Not surprising. If your basic technique is "B grade" or above (and you're stronger than a 5 year old hehe), you can play with any (top tier) racket effectively.

    By the Gods, this is the best meme I've seen yet on BC.

    I dare you to make better ones, but no more on this post. I think we are starting to go way off topic by now.

    BTW, I JUST CRACKED MY Z FORCE 2012 LIMITED 4U JUST NOW!!!!!!! :crying:

    I am seriously in tears... It was one of the most beautiful and best rackets around!

    But on the other hand, I got a new excuse to try out the new Z Force II:cool:

    I also strung my FB at 30lbs bg66m, while the frame is ok, the string broke.
    Then I lowered to 29lbs, and everything goes right.
    Fb plays pretty good at high tension compared with low tension like 26lbs or lower.
    My FB is 5u version. I'm not very confident about the 6u version to take on 30lbs.

    I've strung Flashboosts up to 30 lbs a couple times (including mines) and none of them have broken yet.

    sir, i feel bad for you, the 2012 ltd version is stunning and feels awesome, hope that you can replace it soon.

    LOL

    LOL

    depends, if you're just buying into the hype, maybe, but if you're sure about the spec and it's something that you would use, why not :)

    Hmmm... If you want us to see if it's sexy or not, you'll have to post up a topless pose with the racket a la LCW for us to see... :D

    I loved all of the aspects of the first ZF and I can already tell that if I can adapt to the ZF2, it'll probably be my go to racket for the next year. 4U though!

    Held the Z-force 2 in my hand today and it looks sweet! Colour is amazing and it is very stiff. Head does look a little smaller. Can't wait to buy it. Not allowed to yet:)

    Couldn't really tell. I'll check again in a few days and hold the two side by side.
