wot racket is ur main racket.
Mines a wilson hyper carbon 5.0
I've just recently been trying out SAMAZE B-3500. ISO head, light at 84 grams, medium flex, has real titanium mesh, and cost me around $65 each.
Not been playing that long and have been using the relatively lowly (by most peoples standards on here I suspect) Carlton TT900. However I've just purchased a MP77. Looking forward to giving it a whirl later this week.
Bridgestone SV-TI 3000
Yonex Ti-7 (Lite)
Yang Yang Jumpsmasher 8500
As for now, SOTX STB 8080+: Light (85-88 gram), regular length, mid stiff, oval head, balanced. For ppl knowing me, this racket seems packed everything I was looking for.
Just ordered another one 1 week ago.
Carlton 85g, the old ones are the best!!
my main racquet is mp99 3u g4 it has power+control.
sometimes use ti-10 2u g4 for extra power on smashes,clear,etc
muscle power 99
carlton aerogear 600.....the old ones are the best....and i also like oval heads for some reason
MP100 & MP90. Then later muck around with every other racket I can get my hands on!
Got three main racquets cuz I just bought a new one that's considered a cheaper alternative to the 1st one I used.
1st main racquet:
Yonex CAB 20MS (2U/G4) strung @22lbsM and 23lbsC
2nd main racquet:
Victor Columbia VI (3U/G4) strung @22lbsM and 24lbsC
*comparable to CAB 20MS in terms of play characteristics (stiffness/balance point/length/headshape)
3rd main racquet:
Victor Satellite II (3U/G4) strung @21lbsM and 22lbsC
*despite being labelled flexible in the catalogue, I felt that the racquet is med stiff.
All racquets are regular length, oval heads and strung with BG70 PRO.
Heard this racket several times already. Wondering where I can find a pic or spec of it? If u can provide me a website, it will be very helpful.
Previously, I had tried Ti-10, ISO 800 Tour, Cab 20 before, felt all heavy and turn to 3U racket.
Now, my main racket is Gosen 5000 Ti (3UG5).
Gosen Aermet 5300 3u g5. love the power and control
Sorry, LB... but the Satellite series has been discontinued awhile ago. I contacted Victor (North America) office and they had only two Satellite IIs only and three Satellite Vs (oval head, hexagon cross-section frame, supposedly very durable) in stock. Valued at around $100, they're very good alternatives for Cab20MS. Not sure if they could take high tension but they're Hi-Mod graphite racquets, the highest I have strung with my only Satellite II is 22lbs. Satellite IIs are widebody oval head with regular length (3U-G4).
Victor reps can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. I had a few informative exchanges with them and I urge you to contact them if you're interested. They are currently working on a new website, so updates will be forthcoming.
The correct email addy for Victor office is email@example.com.
With regards to Satellite II characteristics, the specs are not available in their latest catalogue... rather I was informed by a Victor sales rep that the Satellite series are catagorized as flexible. Personally, I find my Satellite II medium stiff (via flexing and using the racquet). I apologise if I had caused any confusion. The Satellite series was a top selling product line for Victor a few years back, I guess it was phased out due to popular demand for new racquet technology. So unlike Yonex's Carbonex *sigh*.
my main racquets are a couple of mp99's, took me a long time to get used to them after using some mp77's!
MP-99 and MP-100 (both in 3UG5)
Or sometimes I use ISO-TI-SP-SR
