    Hmmmmm, after using both the old 2002, long, 2UTi10 (91.5g) and the yellow 2UTi10 (92.0g) for about two weeks (one week each), I find the yellow Ti10 is definitely not as stiff, the shaft not as durable as the old Ti10.

    I used the one old for one week continuous, I hit harder, it was noticeably stiffer and a stronger racket.

    In contrast, the yellow Ti10, after 3 days of use, one side of the shaft crack on the inside. Then another 3 days later, the other side cracked. If you flexed the shaft, it was softer than an MP88. :eek: Also the paint on the cone was coming off, serial number was more than half chipped off.

    In addition, I used a yellow Ti10 (3U, 89.5g) for about a week and the shaft cracked on the inside as well. The racket was very wobbly and the paint on the cone was chipping off as well.

    Anyway, just Panda's recent experiences. :p

    No, no. My problem according to Halim Haryanto Ho is every player has to transfer his/her power from the body to the racket and from the racket to the shuttle.

    Professionals can consistently transfer 90-95% of the power to the shuttle.

    Halim says I'm only transferring about 50-60% of the power to the shuttle. That means 40-50% of the power is being left in the racket. Over time, the racket will break.

    So, as I improve and transfer more power to the shuttle, my dinks will be faster and less rackets will break.

    A win-win situation. :D:D:D

    I think e78 will order upon request. Was gonna order 1 myself but when I saw that they have a 4U AT 900P, was more interested in that one instead.

    Wow, a doubles player with a 2U? Won't that affect your defense?
    Thanks for replying, concretemad :)
