    if flexible about 'flexible', try the AT300
    there are countless other models out there with these same specifications.
    Try looking at Dinkalot's racket review and if that fails, try reading and searching for a racket with the same balance, from a different company.

    Head Heavy can be defined as having a balance point greater than 295-300. generally, when you pick it up, the head will feel weighted.

    So far, most head heavy racquets are stiff mid stiff/stiff racquet. It is rare to find a racquet that is head heavy and flexy and even rarer if it is light (4U).

    So far, I only know the Carlton Nanolite 9500 fits all the requirements.

    MP88. Flexible, and rather head-heavy. Hard to find though.

    - Victor SuperWave 33C (P is stiff but C is quite flexible).
    - Proace Thunderbolt 1-3. 5 is a little too head heavy but still okay flex.

    Also take a look at Ashaways. They make a lot of flexible rackets.

    Cause they're all stiff?? I don't think anybody else would consider them flexible and put them in the same league as say, MP88. I didn't say they were extra stiff...just stiff in general.

    Dear jymbalaya, you have inform "Head Heavy" as balance point greater than 295-300

    In some Rackets Specification (like wilson) have mentioned balance as 29cm, 29.5cm. How to read this data input and find out head heavy racket.

    Are the newer and older Ti-10 the same?
    I've never used it before but am wondering.

    Are the newer Ti10 just equally as good?

    umm is the exact same thing, except the measurement term is different
    basically 29, 29.5cm is equal to 290mm,295mm
    10mm = 1 cm

    simple conversion, hope this helps. GL

    hai nicholasl, your question: "Are the newer and older Ti-10 the same?"

    I searched this in many forums and found no answers - no one is able to provide correct answer if old & new Ti-10 are same.

    Unfortunately i was told that Ti-10 is not available in india anymorw :-( but my 1st preference will be Ti-10.

    I prefer to buy Wilson or Ashway because they have compact models & easy sepcifications to choose from. But Yonex hoooooo my god they have tooo many models and i will go mad once i step into yonex show room. Anyway i got my answers Yonex Ti-10 is suitable for me.
