    Hello,
    I am going to get a Finnex racekt free, which model would you suggest? BTW, I am a aggressive player, and as it's free, I properly use it in double games. Any suggestion? Thanks.

    Byro-Nenium and Mongoose, may you help me?

    K, i've tried 3 Finnex rackets, 1 is the Carbon Pro Ti, Carbon Ace Ti and the Ti Zenith.

    I'm only familiar with the 1st 2 coz the Ti-Zenith belongs to Mr. Mongoose...... Only tried it briefly....

    Out of the 2, i'll call them Pro and Ace. The Pro has got an oval head shape, slightly lighter at the top and is good for net play, powerwise, its not bad, better than the Ace.

    The ace on the other hand is an isometric head shaped racket, good for power and more head heavy, harder at the front. Also backhands are easier with this racket.

    I personally prefer the Pro, but its all up to you. Both good rackets.

    Try the new Pro series. There are several new models, Pro Ultimate, Pro Classic, Pro Carbon, Pro etc etc.
    Basically same material, same stiffness and balance.
    Whichever model you take, I suggest you get the 3U instead of 4U racket.
    Finnex Pro rackets play very well at tensions of 25 lbs and above.

    Thanks for your help.
    Mongoose(Am I right?), can you tell me which one is the most head heavy one? Also, do these finnex rackets have 2u?

    Like I mentioned before, I find that all of them have very similar balance.
    Very slightly head heavy.
    They only have 3U and 4U.
    But the 3Us feel almost like a 2U.

    eh?? IMO, the 3U Finnex rackets are definately heavier than the 3U Yonex rackets but the weight difference is significant enough to tell the difference between the Yonex 2U and FInnex 3U.

    Unlike my then racket, no belonging to Mongoose, the Proace Platinum 110, which is labelled 3U but feels heavier than the Yonex 2U. Much heavier too.

    Just thought i'd add that.
