    Has anyone bought the new forza's or had experiance with them? I see that they have a MP frame kind of, even on the lower end models. There paintjobs have improved a lot.

    But on the higher end rackets, they have the muscle power frame. And have rubber things on the bottom, similar to yonex. Does anyone have close up pictures? or have experiance with it.

    Uhh, I'll be purchasing a Forza 2200 CF from someone and they do have those MP Frame things for anti-vibration. Forza is awsome. It's going to be a great manufacture to stick by other than Yonex.

    I have a 2200 that I'm selling to Yodums next week.
    Ill likely order a pair of 2000's soon.

    I believe there are 4 rubber things at the bottom of the frame.
    What else do you want to know about it?

    The power and control are superb.
    I'm selling it because I find it too stiff, it's even stiffer than the MP100.
    The 2000 should be just about perfect.

    would anyone know which of the forza rackets are slim(like a slim-10), balanced or maybe even head light, iso, long and has triple taper on it? well, the triple taper isn't necessary, but i was wondering if their was one.

    All of the specs can be found at the Forza.nl website .
    There is a Forza Canada website but it doesn't seem to be working now.

    Several of the models are isometric and should be similar to Slim10.

    The 2200 is a long racquet that is Isometric as well. It is definately stiff and between 86 and 89 grams, head heavy.
    The 2000 is the same except more flex.

    I've used the "old" 1400 (non-CF version, that is, without the MP-like frame) and the new 1400 CF version. There is really no difference in playing characteristics. The CF bumps could possibly make the strings live a little bit longer, though.

    So the CF means like MP frame? I didn't know what it meant till now but I knew the MP Frame existed on the Forza.

    Re: hey

    I live in a town about 1 and a half hours east of red deer. The strathmore torniment is hosted by Forza. Cause i went there last year, and they had their whole line of rackets for demo and sale.

    Is this a school torniment or just a regular weekend torniment. Cause didn't strathmore have a torniment earlier this month?

    Sorry for double posting
    but you can go to https://pacific.smartt.com/prizmsports/n_index.html (not sure if its still down or not) and e-mail them. My friend used mastercard and recieved his racket 3 days later.
    The Calgary winter club also has them for sale. I don't know the address though, maybe look it up at the internet for phone numbers and address.

    I'm currently demoing a bunch of Forza racquets:

    Titanium Tech 2200 CF
    Titanium Tech 2000 CF
    FZ 600 Kelvar CF
    Legend Titanium CF SQ
    Legend Classic

    I am very impressed. All are 3U weight. Very well balanced. Strokes are very quick and effortless. Overall construction seems top notch. I carefully inspected every one and found no paint defects or imperfections in the frames. Some friends tried them out as well. While we were pounding the shuttles as hard as we could to compare them with our Yonex racquets, some hard miss-hits on the frame didn't chip or mark the paint at all. Another thing worth mentioning is that the Forza racquets offer a lot of features found on high end racquets of more expensive brands *cough Yonex cough* but without the inflated price. For example, the Legend Titanium has titanium mesh, wide body head, "long" shaft, rounded string guides (or whatever it's called... similar to Yonex Muscle Power head), and comes in either isometric or classic oval head shapes. All that for only $130CAD or so. Esthetically the racquets have really nice paint jobs. Especially the 2200 and the 2000, metallic silver and blue respectively. Really sweet looking. It was the first time I ever thought, "Whoa, now that's a SWEET looking racquet". To me, racquets have always been just racquets.

    One of my friends promptly bought one after trying them out. He now hits harder and defends better than before as well. His previous racquet of choice: Yonex Muscle Power 55. My wife is going to buy one too but she's still trying to decide. Needless to say, she also hits harder and defends better with them. She's been using one my Yonex ISO 200 Powers but it's too heavy for her. And me? Oh I want one... any one of them! :D I'm just getting my wife one though, I still have perfectly good racquets to break :p.
