    Has anyone ever bought/used ProSpeed Predator rackets?

    I heard that ProSpeed is a good brand. Ever since I bought a fake Yonex racket on eBa (I got a refund), I'm thinking to find a non-Yonex but genuine affordable racket :)

    I know someone who's buying the Predator Y9. I'm waiting til he get his racket and he'll let me know how it is.

    I'm really considering to buy one now :crying:
    Isnt' there really anyone else here who has already bought one of the Predator series?

    Bought my Predator Y6 yesterday and played it for 5 mins before the string snapped. But within that 5 minutes, all I can say is WOW! The Predator racquets are very nice. But I've been using my Carbonex 8SP for years and years and years.

    Control with the racket is amazing. It almost seems effortless to do anything with it.

    "Bought my Predator Y6 yesterday and played it for 5 mins before the string snapped. "

    OUCH! I've actually ordered (for my self + 3 friends) and delivered:
    2 x Y2
    1 x Y6
    1 x T10

    What tension did you use for the racket? I hope mine doesn't break too when I get it :( Adam from ProSpeed actually lowered the tension that I requested because he said it's not safe during autumn/winter playing with a strong tension. But I'm so happy that you find it a great racket!

    I think I ordered mine as 25/27 + he minus 1 lb out of them so I guess that makes it 24/26?

    @Smichz: lol it might feed on other rackets if Yonex is developing a new racket called "Aliens".. anyway, bad joke :D

    Mine was a .67mm tensioned at 23lbs. I missed my smash and hit the top of the head and heard the sickening pop. So it's getting "patched" right now and hope it will hold up or I will have to get it restrung.
