    Actually all the GP series looks good !

    BTW, it seems that www.mizuno.jp is not updated with the latest model ? The TC700 on the website is the older model I believe. They also don't have the GP88.

    A pretty cool-looking non-iso racquet.. Aero, non-iso frame.. like the Aerotus, but with a head-heavy balance. What a beast.. I guess this might be there to compete against the AT900T ? I wonder about the shaft stiffness.. it doesn't say.

    Muhaha.. The GP10 and TC700 have arrived at my relative's house in Japan.. I must wait for another month till I return back to Japan :crying:.. Currently.. Miyuki, Taehyeonjeong and I are trying to arrange a meeting in Japan.. I shall try to victimise them with the almighty TC700 :p.. ( i'm joking, technique matters the most. )

    Oh dear, if Twobeer gives a good review of the GP88 one day.. I will be tempted to get it too. :eek:

    I see that the surface area of the string bed is smaller than usual.. it's 53 square inches, while the other models are around 55 square inches..

    The Mizunos are strange. Not Iso.....not Oval. It's a nice shape.

    I gotta say I am sick of red rackets though. I know red and gold are favoured colours in Asia (where badminton rules), but this is a bit of a problem if you don't like red!

    KazeCloud would agree to you on that.. ;) he hates red.

    The Tetracross series have a strange frame shape.. it's in between iso and oval. Maybe it feels like an oval, but the sweetspot is as big as an Iso..

    This one too, the head-shape is not similar to the oval-framed racquets by Yonex or SOTX..

    This is really 'oval', like an egg-shape.

    Kind of similar to Karakal MTEC series, it is in between oval and ISO, however the Mizuno seems to be leaning more towards oval whereas the Karakal leaning towards ISO.

    weeyeh, where did you get all your Mizuno racquets ? Can't be from Singapore as I have not seen any shops that carry it, did you order online ?

    Come mon, go on, help the economy, buy more racquets ! :)
