    Errr, yogi, I'm afraid you're wrong here.
    I happen to know |r|s personally and "quitting" is not him.
    But you're right that |r|s is very busy at the moment and is out of town.
    From what I understand, he is also looking for Iso 800 Tours.
    He should be back by end of the year.

    Adonex Muscle Power Ti-10

    Hmm... a few days ago, I would say many many nice things about this racket.
    But I just broke one of the rackets about two days ago from a racket clash.

    And as some of you guys know, I just switched back to Carbonex 20 recently.
    Got two of them, one an SP version and the other a non-SP with a US serial number at the cone.
    Both cost me less than S$80 each!

    Ok! I'll give a quick review of the Adonex Muscle Power Ti-10.

    Appearance:
    Looks almost exactly like the Yonex MP100.
    But I personally find the finish to be of slightly better quality than the MP100.

    Weight:
    The sticker says 3U.
    But it feels VERY head heavy and heavier in overall weight than the 2U MP100 that I owned until recently (I broke that too!!! Sob!).
    Unfortunately, I don't have a chance to really weigh them.
    When I hold it in my hands, it feels like a very solid racket (much more solid than the MP100).

    Power:
    Very powerful (for smashes and from baseline).
    Its main strength is that it is EXTREMELY stable.
    It doesn't twist on off center hits.

    to be cont'd

    Control:
    Heavy heft gave me very good control at the net.
    I could also aim my dropshots right over the net from the backcourt.
    Very accurate.
    I must repeat again that this racket is VERY stable on off center hits.

    Manueverability (is that how you spell it??):
    Very sluggish.
    One of the least manueverable rackets I have ever used.

    Durability:
    Seems to be very durable.
    Could withstand tension of 24/26 lbs with no problems.
    Don't clash it with any other racket or solid object though! :)
    But for the price, who cares!!

    Summary:
    If you are strong (physically), this may be the right racket for you.
    Although I am more inclined towards doubles, I feel that this racket may seem more suitable for singles.
    Probably because you need to be very strong to manuever the racket around quickly in doubles.
