    Their current racquets now from their previous Flypower Tornado 800 (Kido) and Warrior 7 (Hendra). Dry weight for both racquets are about the same 89-90gms.

    Probably just an extra wording instead of a typo. The word 'enigma' should have been left out to be consistent with Hendra's racquet.

    Cool design!!!
    Could someone provide more spec of these 2 rackets. I am currently using Flypower Tornado 700 and 900, would they be in similar feelings?

    Sounds exactly like Tornado 900 and Warrior 8
    Does the Enigma use Woven tech as well? I use Warrior 8 ATM and dont mind getting Vigor 700, hopefully it will arrive in Australia soon

    The woven carbon can be seen on both shaft and frame in the Vigor 700 whereas it is only on the frame on Enigma 900. It could be woven carbon on the shaft too as the red and batik paint furnish covers the whole shaft.

    I am not sure these racquets are on sale in the market yet as I got mine as samples to check them out. I believe Kido and Hendra have been using them during the last few tournaments. Anyway, you can see them using these new racquets at the World Championships.

    By the way how are your Tornado 800s? Share some pics and the feel as compared to your other racquets :).

    Here is my pic. I am not good in giving great reviews like ants. In terms of feel its more lighter than my Arc10.

    Just had them strung with Victor VS-850 strings today at 26 lbs. String-bed pattern is slightly different for these two racquets. Will test the racquets out tomorrow.

    I made them myself. I find mine is a bit too small. I saw in the World Championships the stencil print on Kido's and Hendra's racquets are much larger.
