    The finishing on the TC400 seems to be very good

    Yes it is. Compared to the TC700 the frame is thicker and it looks and feels more head heavy than the TC700. The LS9 feels about the same as the TC400. Both the TC400 and LS9 are Isometric frames whereas the TC700 is Optometric frame.

    OK so-so only ;)

    Both as I play with all my racquets. Life is too short and unpredictable to buy and keep.

    you need to do a quarterly update on your list of racquets for us.
    doing an annual review is probably overkill for the rest of us, but your collection would have grown too much by then.

    So envy of you, can collect so many rackets.

    A comparison between TC400 and TC700 would be interesting. :)

    I just gave away 2 racquets today that were not suitable for me. So there is a renewal process.

    The frame of the TC400 looks like an aero frame unlike the box frame design of the TC 500 and TC 700, so that may make it look thicker.

    Also, the TC 700 that you have is 3UG4 and the TC 400 is a 3UG5 so the bigger grip size of the TC 700 may make it feel less head heavy.

    I'm really curious about the TC 400, and I like the design a lot. Would be nice to know how it compares to the 700 and 500.

    TC400 looks nice :)

    How flexy is the 400 shaft compared to 700?

    Nice pics, and great collection!

    I just received my L9 this past week, and the frame has a pretty sharp profile and a much wider cross section than the TC700's. Judging from the pics, it looks like the TC400 has a wider cross section than the TC700's, but is still narrower than the L9's. So does that mean its profile is sharper than the TC700's, but still a bit more dull than the L9's?

    I eagerly await for a review/comparison of this racket. =)

    TC400 is definitely more flexy than the TC700. I can't give you the difference in percentage terms but according to feedback from a friend who have played with it, the TC400 is pretty close to the L7. Hope this will give you a rough gauge.

    To: bad fanatic
    Don't own a TC500 and don't think I am going to get it. The reason I got the 400 is because it is highly recommended from my trusted source. The L7 is another racket which is recommended also.

    You can't, because they don't distribute baddy equipment in Europe.
