    same with me, switched from yonex AT700, 800, 900 to metallix 10000 and sold my AT´s... and will never get back to any yonex racquet.

    If you like to buy some more please wait, this summer there will be a revised version of metallix racquets (metallix 10000 tour)! Improvement: better paintjob and the top of the head section is more aerodynamic.

    Another great choice is Metallix 8000 or 8000 tour, a bit more flexy and more forgiving, but still precise and crisp.

    from the specs i would say it´s the same, i guess 5000 is a nice red Karstadt-version of the blue 2000.

    The higher number does sound more appealing...not really fair I think!

    agree, but that´s the difference between a racquet store and karstadt. and if you like the flexible shaft it´s still a nice racquet... ;)

    I haven't seen the 5000 is that an older model or what? But the 2000 you can find the specs on www.head.com

    The problem I had with my Yonex rackets is that I have never had a feeling that it was the RIGHT racket. The only racket wich came near was the NS9000s wich I clashed in a month and broke in 2. To buy another racket it was too expensive for me. So I bought the Kason TSF100 (Yonex more like the Ti10) and was a lot cheaper too. If I break these rackets it's less painfull for my wallet. But after buying the metallix 10000 I wasn't planning to buy a Yonex racket in the future. I believe there a lot of rackets on the market wich can be the same or better and a lot cheaper than yonex.

    Just got some new infos!

    The Metallix 5000 does indeed consist of a different material mix than the Metallix 2000. I don't know exactly if for the better, but it's different, though comparable. The number does not necessarily indicate that it's a better racket than the Metallix 4000 and worse than the Metallix 6000. Maybe they should have named the racket 3000 instead, I don't know.

    The Metallix 4000, 6000, 8000 & 10000 are referred to as competition rackets.

    For any individuals interested in trying out Head rackets in Toronto, Ontario. You could come to the George Brown Badminton Club downtown. We have someone who is in contact with the Head badminton rep and he brings rackets to demo.

    I've strung all his Head rackets (Metallix 10000 and 8000) with my own string or Head branded string he provided. To all stringers, Head rackets stringing pattern is one piece.

    I use the the Airflow 5 now. Very very light racket but packed with power if you can use it properly.

    Bought a Head Metallix 8000 ( NBG-95 / 26lbs ) @ SGD150 2 weeks ago. The experience since then is awesome. Great Power and good control. Improve my game by at least 10%. Never regret getting it....:)

    Oh no I am not; I even have evidence to prove it...:D
    Anyways in the website they claim Airflo5 is G5 & has tapered handle, the ones that I bought is nothing like that. Mine is G3 & the handle is not tapered. I like the racket because it is very light(79 grams) & the shaft is medium flex which helps my "wristy" game a lot. I have 3 of those & absolutely love 'em......

    Someone knows anything about Airflow 3? A girl from my club needs a new racket and asked me for recommendation. She plays mix doubles and singles.
