    As far as I can tell the 008DX is extra stiff compared to 008 stiff. Does anyone know how good the "extra" version is?

    Secondly, has anyone tried both rackets. Possible to give your feedback here? Is the 008DX a replacement model for the 008?

    Thanks

    From what I've read, the 008DX is the budget version made with poorer materials.

    I have 2 8DX's which are awesome.

    My mistake, I misread your post. Thought you'd put 8DX & 008DX.

    NVM then. BTW, online stores in UK seem to be phasing out 008 in favour for 008DX

    Save up for an 8DX or look for a second hand one.
