    Nice racket but I already have 3 Pro9000s and 1 MX70. This racket looks like a blend of both in specs as well as the look. Pro9000 is my go to doubles racket, my style of play is well adapted to it. Maybe one too many? Decisions, decisions...

    Man...the specs seem to be just right up my alley. I usually get rackets with specs like 86-87g, BP 295+, stiff, AND string it up to 27lbs. But I'm not playing badminton until February-March...so it's kinda pointless since I can't do a review asap.

    I just bought RKEP9000 last week, why didnt this announcement come earlier :(

    I had a brief session with RKEP9000 (84g @ 295 bp) and felt it like ti-10. Would other people agree with this? Because it is so light, I am still working on my clear shots. Other than that, very good handling aspect.

    trust your choice and many other good players choice:
    PRO9000 is a wonderful racket with heavy smash power.
    Enjoy the one you have.

    Maybe consider to have one XP70 to enjoy its fast speed with great control.

    Really tempting to try this out. Will it be coming in an orange design as well like the pro 9k did?

    I think it is clear enough on my previous pictures (in #376 page 23)
    just attach another 2 pictures:
    XP60 (BLUE 5/5 very stiff version)
    XP80 (RED 3/5 medium)

    I will give a review after trial.

    Best Regards,
