    Since there's always lots of enthusiastic racquet shoppers desperately looking for opinions on various racquets, I thought I'd share this with everyone. These are racquets that I've owned and used in the past. This is strictly my own intepretation. some may not be the most accurate since I may be comparing racquets i have now to a racquet i had 5 years ago. Also, may have some bias, as i'm a player who typically favour x-stiff and head heavy (but not to the extreme), as my main racquet in the past year has been AT800OF3U.

    I've had this list for while, but thought it'd be useless once Dinkalot puts out his racquet reviews, but i waited and waited, and still dont' see one... so here's mine!

    As I have said before, I'm still working on the racket review. It'll be a few more days.

    Think he was referring to the panda image in the background as opposed to specific reviews. :)

    I say one last time, it's a rough draft meaning it's not complete, I didn't add all the bells and whistles (i.e. Panda Image) and stuff.

    Hmm, i wonder...

    ...Dan, i've got a suggestion for your upcoming rackets review. Which is to put under the Comments column, or if you want to create a new column, somekind of a list of comparable rackets next to the reviewed racket(s). So say, if one wants a similar or comparable rackets to a SOTX Woven 11, all one has to do is glance over to the Comments or new column to find out??..:) :cool:
    IMO, providing those lists should be quite beneficial..whaddaya think of this idea??..;)

    Cool..

    ..cool..:)[​IMG] ..Cos often times i/we noticed people post or ask questions abt comparable rackets/grips etc. Now, they don't have any more excuse(s)/reason(s) to ask those questions/queries, well in most cases. All one has to do is just take a peek at the informations & voila.;)

    Some other information which also might be helpful is approx price range and avalbility of the racket (discontinued/only in jp/etc.) since some rackets such as the cab 9 are probably not the easiest to get anymore.

    Naw, that's too much work. I'm doing a racket review not a racket-wiki. :p Besides, there's way too much variance in pricing and availability. Also, I wuold constantly have to update the status on rackets and many of them I would not even know.
