    How come my C7 bp is only 295mm? Did I measure wrongly? From the centre balance point at the racket shaft till the end of butt cap. Anyone can advise?

    What type of grip you used to grip your racquet? Original intact?

    The original was removed. But the bare wood was wrapped with a layer of overgrip first, then followed by a layer of "thin" paper tape and then a thin PU grip.

    How about head-heaviness? Would you say the head weight of the C7 is in between VT 70 and VT 80? Or perhaps comparable to the AT 900T?

    In terms of head-heaviness, how does the C7 compare with a VT80 the two AT900's? I own a VT5, which is head heavier than VT70. Just wondering if C7 would be more head heavy than VT5.

    (Sorry if this is double post, wasn't sure if first post went thru)

    Having both MX60 and C7 on hand now, I definitely say that MX60 is stiffer than C7... When you swing MX60, you still feel the whole racquet is swinging, like a plank but for C7, at least you feel that the head is swinging more...

    I think the shaft stiffness is essentially the same, but the C7 is more head heavy so it feels less stiff on the court, yeah.

    Plus the torsional stiffness of the MX60's head is like twice as good as the C7 - that adds to the effect, too.

    I did bend both the shafts and do find that MX60 is stiffer than C7

    I second what Maklike commented about C7 and MX60. C7 really lose out on torsional stiffness compared to MX60, make the C7 more 'springy and whippy'... which I really LOVE!!!
