    a bit head heavy, stiff and it only weighs 84 gram. You get power put not as much like with a 3U racket but it has a good manouvrability
    I find it good for doubles

    taken from jerry's woven review.

    I have the woven 8a and lg 200 and I agree with the comments he made of the two rackets that I own. I actually use my lg 200 as a warm up and for practising technique tool.

    Racket, Power, Control, manoeuvrabilit, Notes
    Woven 5A 7, 7, 9.5. Stiffer, more stable, more solid that the w6. slightly less but still amazing in defence
    Woven 6 5, 7, 10. Amazing light, though doesn't feel good smashing, to much for my taste
    Woven 7 9, 8, 6 heavy, good flex, good attacking racket, not too extreme
    Woven 7i 9.5, 8.5 , 7 newer and stiffer, feels more manoeuvrable, slight better power, btu a guestimation
    Woven 8 8, 8, 8 I my idea it's the perfect allrounder (maybe slightly defense-based) nothign more, nothing less
    Woven 9 7, 7, 9 fast, attacking, for doubles
    Woven 10 9.5, 7.5, 6 skip...to long ago though a 7 for defence is overrated I think
    Woven 11 10, 8, 5 gotta love the power, but too slow for my taste (especially in doubles)
    Woven 12 8, 9, 8 feels better than the w8..but the specs are a longshot for me...
    Woven 13 8, 10, 9 I stick with my ratings...this thing is first rate...and expensive
    D500 7, 9, 8.5 slightly headheavier than the w8, shorter than the w9 (headheavyness is roughly equal) and my current favorite (it's just my
    soulmate )
    D600 9.5, 9, 7 too long for my taste (doubles suffer) but the power is great, and I'm just a sucker for than D-series feel..
    D900 8.5, 9, 8 allrounded but somewhat headheavy (comparing to D500/woven 8) gotta love than flex
    Jed-077 9, 6, 7 . stiff, attacking, but the feeling is different..it felt a bit off (bg66 cured it though )
    LG-200 6, 8, 9 light, but headheavy, surpirsing power and performance ( especially for just 30 euros) for it's weight, actually not a bad racket (just too light for me)
    LG-300 6.5, 8, 8.5 felt slightly heavier than the LG200, better power, but still no beast, again, a surprisingly nice racket..

    Managed to borrow a woven 7 and 16 from a friend which he bought from hk, told me that the price for their top model woven and cp series is not cheap even though they are manufactured in china. Will try them out this weekend. Btw any bro out there knows where I can get reasonable priced sotx racket online. Thanks!

    I couldn;t find any info on the cp series before.

    And of course, top of the range is never cheap.

    and good luck on finding the racket that you like :)

    Maybe you should first list your requirements first. ie weight, shaft flex and bp

    well the last time a lot of people that was interested in sotx rackets. I think both woven 9 and d900 were recommended as very good all round racket. Both are slightly head heavy. d900 shaft is slightly more flexible.
