    i was so excited about the duoforce i strung it without weighing it. i will do so if i break or bring myself to cut the perfectly strung zm65 on it.

    i know. i am an idiot sometimes. :D

    i debated whether to string it with the Adidas Power Hybrid with yellow+white strings. that will look excellent.

    and then i remembered that i was told the Power Hybrid won't be coming into the USA for a little while. so the remaining pack that i have is probably a rare out of a handful of them that exists in the USA. and that i know the feeling of the ZM65 better for the review. so i strung the ZM65 instead.

    and for the look dept, the only part which is out of place is the black cone. i would suggest future version should do some refinement on color matching the cone and blend the silver/black Adidas label better with the rest of the racket color.

    We can still figure out the dry specs.

    What's the wet wt, bp, and head wt?
    And what overgrip and wt?

    very nice racket if you like something on the lighter side and still powerful. Nozomi is using this racket now.
