    Lol, well, they are technically produced in China, after all. :p

    However, I do concur. The old color scheme is much less glaring.

    For me, 3U TC700 cant beat AT700 in smashing. But havent try the 2U one. Really want to buy but til now, still no budget hehe.

    And I think 3rd Gen Colour is beautiful :p

    I am thinking the same too !

    Honestly, after the back to back test, I am really glad I bought a spare TC700.

    For me a 3U TC700 is more power than 2U AT700 :) (have not tried A700 with lead tape though :p ) . Personally I think even the ARC-10 beats the AT700 in raw power potential :cool:

    Well, I've also seen the rackets in catalog images elsewhere, but now another Chinese poster is saying that Mizuno has confirmed the leaked photos to be prototypes and not final products. The same poster also said that, according to Mizuno, the new versions will be oversized iso-frame and with 108 holes, and that there will be some sort exchange program (old racket for new racket) during its debut. :confused:

    Here's the original post in Chinese- the 10th post of the thread- in case anyone wanted to see it for themselves:

    AT700 does not come in 2U, only 3U and 4U.

    He probably means 3U AT700 with lead-tape on it.. that would be a 2U.

    AT700 with lead tape reduces this racquet to junk status.:D

    that's right. One should use surgical tape instead.

    Hey guys, I'm about to go back to Hong Kong in the beginning of July. Where in Hong Kong can I buy Mizuno rackets from? I tried a Mizuno racket and I'm very impressed, would love to have my own.

    Look for Fung from Kaisengbadminton.com, but do contact him before you make your way down to Hong Kong as the TC700 is not always in stock.

    I remembered that during my 1st trip to HK, it was out of stock and Fung tried really really hard to secure some stocks before I leave HK but was unable to. When I know my schedule for the next HK trip, I called him and ask him to secure 2 x TC700 for me in advance.

    Excellent service !

    I dont like that idea :( oversize iso frame will cost TC700 speed and i'm sure power will decrease also.

    Is it the same price locally in HK as it is on their website, excluding shipping?
