    wow... first looks

    1) Amazing paintworks... very classy
    2) Balance racket
    3) Egg shaped frame
    4) long handle
    5) stiff shaft


    Will test it out tonight! according to website, this racket is not recommended to beginner.

    Bought it for my gf as she is a high level beginner... becos i broke her Gosen Ouji which she likes it very much due to the repulsion. it is very rare for light racket with good repulsion.. recently i got her NR750... but frankly... the racket sucks!

    That is one nice looking racket. Reminds me of Ti-10 first gen. Let us know how it plays! Rumor says all Gosen rackets are quite flexible.

    TenRyu is same as OuGi!!!! This is what I have been told....
    Japan has discontinued the Ougi, but the demand is still there in China!
    so Gosen China name it TenRyu and make it a China-only edition with different outlook. But they are selling it at the same price which is bloody high!

    Juventus. What do these mean?

    Physical effort - user need to put more effort to make shots?

    Error due to accuracy - user make more errors?

    Physical effort- if 10 means less strength required..

    Error due to accuracy- if 10 means less mishit.. due to larger sweet spot and shorter shaft

    Dun worry abt final score.. based on the chart just choose the racket that suit your level, skill and style.

    There is no all rounder racket...

    Juventus,

    Can you kindly clarify how you arrive with the score of 7.5 in Power Smash and the 8 in Drive? For the Power Smash, I can understand why both Shiden and Tenryu score less than the Yonex racquets but hopefully you can provide some insight why it has a weaker smash.

    For the Drive, because the handle on the Tenryu is longer than the Shiden I was suspecting it can move faster which is a key part of Drive. Can you tell us why you think it is deficient by that much compared to the Shiden please? Thanks in advance!

    Naturally heavy head has built for hard and power smashing.. that is without question..

    For handle that is longer.. it is naturally faster to swing.

    Shiden is design more for quick drive..

    Tenryu is design to a more complete racket.. except for hard smash.

    All the above racket require user intermediate or high level skill.
