    Weight feels very light and quality well-made and solid.

    in spite of the recommended tension, wonder if the racket can take 28-30 lbs?

    Roots Aermet 6000 and 6900 Comparison

    Shaft is more tapered both front and lateral at the throat for the 6000. As such the cross-section diamond-shape area at the throat would be larger and more pronounced. Frame is also thicker similar to the Aermet Platinum Limited edition.

    The most obvious difference is the missing 'Two Kick Point System' for this racquet.

    I was thinking abou this too as I am going to string this racquet next week.. From my experience so far with Gosen badminton racquets, their quality is excellent and they are extremely well-made. I reckon they would be able to take up to 30lbs similar to the outside Japan models (6900 Boonsak, 7900, 8900) as stated in Gosen's catalog.

    I am planning to string it in the range of between 24-28lbs.

    Name and logo printed on throat and cone reversed for JP and non-JP models. I prefer the non-JP configuration as the rubberised logo at the cone act as a thumb-grip for executing short back-hand serves.

    Yep, Shuttle House. By the way they are taking orders for CAB35 now. They will start taking for ArcSabre Z once it is listed in their website.
