    The old version of the Ti-10 is much stiffer than the new version. The new one is flexible like woah!

    Agree but according to Cooler's "scientific" analysis, the new one is much stiffer. Go figure. :rolleyes:

    At least my scientific methodolgy mean it's unbias and i dont need to make revision:rolleyes: U have the rights and opportunity to prove me wrong, scientifically. A subjective feel that contradicts science doesnt prove the science is wrong. From above posts, u have already acknowledged that your 'review is not definite/ultimate'. U can't claim holy correctness when yourself declared not definitely certain:D. I'm not trying to start a controversial debate. I'm only quoting here:p Go figure? My figures were done already:p

    Let me lend a hand here. I have owned enough Ti-10s new and old version to know the ins and outs. Overall, the old version is stiffer.

    Unless I got a defective, new Ti10 to test, your "scientific" instruments are flawed and/or biased.

    Science cannot be unbiased unless you prove your methodology. You haven't, you just claimed it's scientific. I'm not doubting your methods nor approving them, I would just like to know what they are. So please post your methodology, thanks.

    Also, please give us your detalied findings between the two rackets, I'd like to see them; or link me to where you posted it, thanks.

    For me, revisions are necessary because times change and what we know changes. Remember Columbus? Newton? When I test things, it's at that time. Later, maybe a new benchmark comes out or I have a defective racket or some other variable. If that's the case I will certainly revise or update my findings.

    Finally, please do not put words in my mouth nor make me out for something I am not. I never claimed to be 100% correct or holy or whatever you are saying. Please just stop with that.

    You claim you made a scientific finding, I'm asking you to please prove it because again, the new Ti10 I tried (informally) was not as stiff as as the old one.

    I look forward to your scientific analysis as I like learning new things, thank you. :)

    Sir, please check your e-mail about the string.

    Also, let's wait for Paul's scientific analysis. :)

    nah, it would be as futile as galileo trying to convince the masses that the earth is round, not flat as pancake. Maybe it is good to leave a bit of mystery behind with the new vs old ti-10 debate, to keep ti-10 popularity alive;)

    Maybe you realized your mistake and are trying to back peddle. :p

    Well I took dinkalots review on the racquets and upgraded to a d600 from the at500 and at 300 and I loved it ..End of the day u look at the review as just a good refrence source and choose a racquets among the good oens there dpeending on ur playing style and prefrences.

    The review is not the ultimate and 100% right and as a matte rof fact no review is as the reviewers prefrences is bound to show up a little bit but it deifntelty is very veyr use ..way to go dink.

    Thnaks

    How does science nót revise itself? In my book, it's the greatest part about science: it can "change its mind" :D

    missing premise: my experiment is a scientific fact... :eek:

    speaking of holy correctness, science, revisions...How about a nice peer-to-peer review of your scientific method? ;)

    by science i dont mean nuclear science tough or using nasa type equipments to judge stiffness. It mean it was measured with known and accepted devices and standard like kg and cm with with unbiased judgement versus subjective feel which can depends on alot of external influences like which side of bed panda got up that day or how potent he feel that day:p

    Yes, science can be contradicted or corrected or improved but preferrably by another sciencifically based theory or methodology.

    Stiffness is a human term which linguistically serve us well under normal circumstances like comparing noodles to a bamboo stick. However, when comparing stiffness at a narrower range, it can fail as we all sometime disagree to yonex's assigned stiffness to each racket models, as well as how members here disagree about stiffness of AT700 or other rackets.

    My method is simple and based on well known convention, the SI system.
    I bend the racket with known weight (g, kg,) and measured with standardized measuring devices that record deflection in mm, cm etc. There shouldnt be any unknown process introduced in this type of experiement. Yes, i assumed gravitation constant remaining constant between the time i tested the new and old ti10:p

    Panda always wakes up on the left side of the bed. The bed is in the corner. :D

    The AT700 is...stiff enough. :D:D

    Sir Dink, will there be an update with other rackets ? :D

    I'm so impatient to read a review on models such as Yonex Ti-10 or Victor Super Wave 32.

    I plan to buy a woven 7, and from reading the review it's certainly assuring. Also, what tension can the racket hold up to? I normally go 24x26 with bg-80. Do you think this would generate impressive power?

    Power is generated by the wielder.

    Do a search, Woven rackets are generally guaranteed up to 30lbs.
