    Hi all, i am the one who posted the topic about the TIME OUT thing.. thanks for all your replies! well i have a new topic...

    I have my TI8 that is JUST almost a year old... or so and its great.. i loved it but i know they wont eb making anymore of this. I knwo this is a all round racket, and it has no Specialty to it.... but i am a very big smasher, and everythng and i found that the racket worked well for me,... i can ask my dealer to ask Yonex to get me another one i think.. but i am thinking about switching to another racket.. i have a ab900 and i find i cant do those wonderful drop shots as i can with my ti8... but lots of power with the AB900.. peopel tell me they cant even see the bird hit the ground when i smash.. i am thinign aout the ti7... what do u guys all think?? whast a suitable racket for me?? please help me :)

    THanks

    When i cant see the shuttle hit the ground, i call it out :lol:
    Anyway, maybe a mp77 is closer to your ti8 than a ti7

    No. i havent tried mp77 yet, it's just my gut feel. Even if i did tried it, my descriptive words wouldn't be very accurate anyway. The best to ask your yonex dealer or friend to borrow a mp77 for a few shot

    i have an mp77.
    its an even balanced racquet...or supposedly, kind of similar to the ti8 although the ti8 feels more head light......
    i posted a review on the '77...i like it a lot, i tried the ti7 also...and its not that great, power production of the racquet just doesnt match up to the mp77. ti7 flexes too much. as for strings and the tension, i'm using bg70 22x24lb.
    i can hit the bird from baseline to baseline with substantially less effort with the mp77 when compared to other racquets i've tried.
    something else you could consider is a swing power SS....

    If u prefer a head light racquet, MP77 won't be suitable. My suggestion would be the ISO Ti-SP (SS or SX).

    Are u on the look out for another Ti 8?

    I can procure one for u and mail it for u in case u require it.I think these are still available and are pretty cheap.

    Mail me in case u are interested.

    i think a good replacement would be a Ti 10.

    U can try the AS 1 also.

    head heavy can generate more power because it helps with the momentum build, but the trade off is that it will not be as maneuverable...i find that the mp77 balance for me is just great....head heavy enough to do good smashes, and has enough wait in the head to maintain stability for defence.
