    I bought one recently and strung it with Gosen R4X110 at 22lbs:

    Can't stand with the vibration.

    I am changing a more vibration-damping string to see if there's any improvement.

    thank Jayda and Scott kam .
    i 'v used tc500 for days, and i felt that ,compare to Yonex 800 or 9000(all are 3u5), tc 500 is some harder and not easy to control.

    that thread is about how/where to buy Mizuno racquet. Here's the English site of that Japanese store: http://shuttle-house.com/Page_Top_E.html

    there's another thread about comparing Mizuno to NS9000:
    http://bbs.168p.net/viewthread.php?tid=1270&extra=page%3D1 (lots of pics!)

    sorry I'm not good at translation (and take too much time LOL). Overall it says the Tetra500 is like NS9000S and Tetra700 is like NS9000X.
    - similar price
    - similar shaft stiffness (but somehow Mizuno is more flexible?)
    - Yonex has better finish & color
    - Mizuno has better smash (heavier head)
    - Mizuno is more toward professional player
    - Mizuno calls it "areobox frame" (between oval and ISO)

    I'm itchy to get one now! :)
