    tempted by the all the discussions here, i went and got myself an AB2000 (you guys are terrible in that respect, i bought so many rackets just because of you all)

    anyway, i had the shop cut the factory string and i restrung it with bg85@24. i haven't tried it yet. but swinging it, the balance and weight is very good, it is a little bit head heavy, but also light enough at the same time.

    i also held a AB900. it is much heavier. the triple taper on the racket head is really exaggerated. i haven't gotten that one yet though. btw, the AB900 is really difficult to find. i have only seen it in one shop for HK$440. another shop claims that it is not distributed in HK. i still can't figure out whether he is telling the truth or just that the racket is so popular it is sold out everywhere.
