    Thanks for your reply Gak)12

    I trust on my stringer because he did my stringing quite sometimes and he is professional. Unfortunately the shop doesn't provide stringing service, that;s the reason I let other to do so. I been playing badminton for 10+ years, never had this situation in my life. Hopefully dealer will replace it for me and really can't wait to feel the strength/beauty of HEAD's racket.

    Mistakes do happen both on the stringer part as well as the manufacturer.
    My local dealer will have not problem on factory defects replacement.I hope you can get your new racket soon too.

    You can try the Power Helix 8000 as well.Cool racket.Hee hee.
    Am using the 8000 tour and Metallix 4000 currently.Loaned a Power Helix 8000 and feeling great.

    Huh? My M8k Tour is very hollow and pingy feeling compared to anything else I've ever used or owned. They're great playing rackets, but they could improve the feel to be a bit more organic.

    I've received a claim racket from dealer. Played with the racket and feel pretty good. Just feel abit hard feeling probably it due to the string .They replaced the racket with Yonex string BG65 with 26lbs. May be it will feel better if i change it to slimmer string.

    i played with the metallix 8000 (non tour version) and i really like it
    its a head light racquet and its flexible
    it has good power and very good for defense......very fast racquet
    i like this one better than the new powerhelix 8000 one as the powerhelix i find is more head heavy

    Thats great!Enjoy your new racket.BG65 is very "rough"
    Go for the new Ashaway Zymax strings.very good feel with replusion even at 28 pounds.

    Yeah...power helix 8k is head heavier than metallix 8k but 8k range is still generally the lighter rackets among the range.
    I do like my power helix 8k as it produces more power and still very easy to handle.
    Best of both worlds!
