    ah.... it may not be so if 9900 was at the low end of 2u and the zf was at the high end of 4u ;)

    if you're looking for a light fast but powerful racket, you should really look into the Precision Pro and the upcoming Revelation. :D

    very informative, thank you, now i'm convinced that the 9900 will probably swing like a 2u arc10

    I have the z slash, and a vt zforce

    The vt zf is easier to hit with and has better control at the net it just seems faster.

    the z slash smash to me is more powerful. both strung on the same day with um66 at 26lbs

    Rekindling this thread...

    Anyone tried Apacs Feather Weight 300 or Apacs Foray 600 Light? Both are 76 grams before stringing. Both are head heavy at 300mm & flex at 8.5. Both can be strung up to 35 lbs. Both are shaped differently.

    Would either of these two qualify to be your lightest, fastest & most controlled racket?

    By the way, I recently bought both rackets from JB Malaysia to try them out. They really suit me as I do not have very trained arms. They also suit most lady players and some guy players who like very light & controlled rackets.

    That's without the handle, I think, Karakal cheats a bit on it's measuring system.

    Lightest Racket:
    ______________________________
    1- Apacs FeatherWeight 200
    2- Karakal BN60
    3- Yonex ArcSaber FB/Victor Light Fighter 7000/Yehlex..... (Forgot The Name)

    Before you argue, Apacs is the lightest racket, Karakal may say its BN60 is 60G but that weight does not include the grip which I've weighed with the racket to be 75G. The Apacs on the other hand weights 69G and the Yonex/Victor/Yehlex weighs 76G. I've owned all of these before and weighed all of them unstrung and stock from the factory.
