    Does the PRO6000 have the "clearcoat" for better paint durability (similar to what Victor did with the 2nd gen Braveswords)?

    currently i am using mx60 and arc9dx and hate arc9dx. only time i use it when i am playing precise shots. so i wanted something like bs10 or bs12 and i thought rkep6000 will be good. but reading all the tread i wanted to go for rkep9000 but to some people specs are more likely armotec900 which i don't like and sold it. any recomendation.

    I would like a white version of the 9000 without the red/orange. Adding some purple instead would be amazing imo :)

    I asked Eric about the RKEP Pro 6000 and he told me that it's most similar to the BS12, but slightly head heavier to get more swing power. So it sounds exactly like a BS09, confirming the reviews that stated that it's less stiff than the BS11.

    j4ckie, looks like these might be some nice backups when your BS09's break! :D

    Got my 293mm bp, 85g green Pro 9k a few days ago with 66UM 24 pounds along with my SW30. It looks really nice with green grip, I'll upload some pictures later. And darn it, just like visor I like my 9000 much better than the more expensive SW30 :p

    ^^ Lol! You should've heeded me. Would've saved you some money. My sw30 has been neglected for quite a while already. ;)

    At least the darn thing looks nice. But yeah, I don't think I'll be using it for awhile.. >.> Feels too detached, lacking feel even with Ultimax which generally gives me really nice feel.

    Looks great on a big photograph, I might just decide to get a couple of backups for my turkey blue Pro9000 one once Eric's made his orange batch.

    Last I heard from him, he had to wait for the factory to finish some other big orders first before RKEP's relatively small order could be fulfilled.

    just ordered pro6000 88g295bp with bg66um and pro9000 85g 285bp with bg66um as well.
    i wanted to order more but nobody wanted to place order so decided to go ahead. in the mean time i had the opportunity to buy sw35 and bs11 with a very good price but didn't buy them. i know racket is very subjective. let me see if have done the right thing cause i have decided not to buy any more this year. i bought too much this year..........

    Boy, me too.. :eek:

    Both the 9000 and 6000 are great rackets :)

    Oh yeah, if anyone from the Bay Area wants to group buy from Eric anytime soon let me know. I have already have one guy who is interested in a 6k.
