    I want a new racket and i am a beginner player that is still improving. Which one would be better Ti 7 or the Mp 77. I used to play with the iso 60 mf light so i am used to LIGHT rackets but i also like to smash so i want an average POWERFUL racket!
    And how much would each of them cost in Yo's or Lee's ?

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Ti-7

    ti-7 is more suitable for u,MP77 is a good racket,but it is not so easy to get used to, u can find MP77 is hard to swing.

    G'day,

    MP77 is probably not the way to go if you are used to light weight racket. I have a MP77 and a Cab21, both 2UG3 version. MP77 tires me out after 10 continuous smashes whereas I can go on just about all day smashing with CAB21.
    Both racket are the same weight (100g including upgraded grip) but MP77 is way head heavier - hence the extra power, and difficulty in swinging.

    I have tried a Ti-7 and it feels nice - a lot easier to swing than MP77 with just a little less power. In this case probably more suited to what you are looking for if you are coming from light weight racket.

    I'd say it doesn't make much difference. Just pick one and keep playing. If you are used to a light racquet, maybe you can try a heavier one and then you'd end up liking that instead!

    True! It is Just question of fitness and then ur body getting used to it! I guess u can still be as quick as u want with a 4U racket and a 2U racket if u want to be!

    And which one is more powerful, I'm guessing the MP 77. How much would Ti-7 cost at Lee's or Yo;s?

    ti-7 = ~170

    It's long, heavy, balanced toward the head and has a box shaped MP frame rather than a more aerodynamic one.
