    Guess we should wait for the yonex 2008 catalogue to know more about those new rackets.

    This new new Ti-10 don't have Ti-Mesh at 3 and 9 o'clock but material wise has been upgraded from High Modulus Graphite to Ultra High Modulus Graphite.

    Are you serious?

    I havent got a good look at it just yet and i have to wait till feb 2nd before i can purchase it as it all out of stock..

    I hope it is better.. man Yonex got to stop changing rackets keep the materials but change the colour only dont start changing the materials and the colour at the same time.. grrr it is quite annoying.

    Is true. Those fire look finishing at 3 & 9 o'clock are just FAKE ti-mesh (sticker).

    Have you taken off this sticker to confirm? A Ti series with no mesh is hardly part of the Ti-series..

    The "Ti-Mesh" at the 3 and 9 o'clock is just paint btw. I've chipped the new Ti-10 at the Ti-Mesh part and it's just the same as a chip else where. Ti-Mesh just means it's within the frame, but the actual Ti-Mesh doesn't look like that thing painted on the frame. So the this newer Ti-10 could have Ti-Mesh in it but Yonex just chose not to paint the conventional design on the frame.

    When you look at the real stuff then you will understand. Of course, I won't just purchase this racquet, cut off the frame and confirm with you. :D

    IMO, such finishing will hardly attract ti-10 lovers.

    Don't you think this is just a silly attempt by not showing the real ti-mesh on the surface for this legendary ti-10 series. Just to concern. :p

    They seriously need a blue one. Have you guys noticed most of the rackets are either red or some exotic color. Very few blues. I like blue.

    I also doubt Yonex will start coming out with sticker decals for Ti mesh. -___-

    Basically, the new color scheme is acceptable but only the Ti-Mesh stuff ........ :confused: Hard to believe it come with this type of finishing... ti-mesh decal.

    ue

    That true.. i need to go back to AJ mart and see how things goes.. i cant believe that they change the materials again..

    IMHO i feel that the new colour scheme that yonex changes all the time with rackets is a good move but not the materials..maybe since it is UHMG it can be the heavy one like the old ti-10
