    From the RSL 2009 collection (PDF file) provided in RSL website, it is stated that X3 Silver is more stiff than X3 gold, and X3 silver is for power while X3 gold is balanced between power & control. Do u all agree with it?

    If you looked at p9 of the document, you can find a different Stiff-Flex chart...

    RSL is so unprofessional, I hate this kind of mistakes.....

    yeah,you are right..well,whether its a mistakes or not,it doesnt really matter as long as RSL keep producin good rackets.About my 9500,i cant help it but keep using it.its just that good !! i cant play a good game with my 8800 or even X2 blue no mo'.!! maybe i should switch the racket every alternate game in order to get back the feel of the old ones...even two of the member from my group has switched to 9500.both were satisfied and intend to get another piece.lol

    what does the "stiff-flex" chart say about x3 gold? in comparison with x3 silver? and can someone share how stiff x3 gold really feels at play? and its overall performance? thanks..

    hi hi squallyeo.i wish i could post some of the pictures but im sorry that i cant.because im actually using my PS3 as my pc and whenever i try to send link it says failed.haha..why dont you check it out from rsl website instead?or better yet go visit your local store so that you can have a better look at it.it may not be as good lookin as other series but the power it generates - AWSOME!! if you're a hard smasher then you cant missed this one! you just cant judge its performance by its look.that's all i can say..

    i would say its easier to control at the net shots than drop shots with this racket.maybe because of it's light weight,you dont even have to use a pound of strength with your wrist,just 'TING', like that!! i mean just flick your wrist by one inch does the job.very easy to control. as for the drop shots..well,whenever i try to do a drop shots,the shuttlecock tend to drop somewhere near the serve line which is quite far instead of near to the net.maybe its because of my high tension(32lbs).i will try my friend' 28,30lbs just to find out which poundage are best for overall plays,especially drop shots. just for you buddy!! to me 32lbs is just perfect as im more to a smashing player.will update you soon !!

    Err..well,if you're asking for my opinions,i would say YES.and also it really depends on what type of player you are,offensive or defensive.As i mentioned before,X3 gold were not much different compared to X2 gold except its lighter and more flexible.SORRY to those non 9500 user,especially X3 gold owners,this is just my thought,nothing against X3 users!! but one thing is for sure,X3 gold is much,much more handsome and good looking than 9500,no doubts.HA HA..

    Oh yea,forgotten something..the perfect poundage for playing drop shots is 28'(for me).and at the same time the controls at net play and power of smashing decreases.so 30' would be even,balance.but still 32' works best for me as i play lots of smashing.that's why suffered from golfer elbow recently but am fine now.hope to hear from you soon with your thought about 9500.
