    same same. ti10 with black strings is simply awesome! nevermind my lousy skills. hee hee. besides beauty, its powerful for singles and fast enough for doubles too.

    (1) Power

    (2) Solidness

    (3) Price

    At around HKD650/pc, it's a pretty good deal for the amount of graphite availble. I am not worried if I string it to 28 or 30 something pounds.

    AhhH the Ti-10 (2U long), what a beautiful racquet from Yonex!

    When you play with it the first time, you realize right away that its a special beast. Most of people will either hate it or love it to death.

    If you read in reviews, many ppl will tell you that it takes a lot of time to adapt to that racquet. The reasons are that the shaft is longer, stiffer and it is very head heavy.

    Unlike new racquets, the extra 10mm lenght is added in the shaft and not on the grip. Also, the weight of the racquet is usually felt more heavy than other 2U because of its head heaviness.

    One of my favourite characteristic of this racquet is its ultra slim shaft. It lets you swing so fast whitout sacrificing the stiffness. Every shot is solid and precise. I think this racquet is made for offensive players that smash and drives alot.

    The paint job on the top of the racquet is very solid. It is almost impossible scratch the paint out of it. At first I tought this racquet was very fragile because it was long and thin, but now I realize that its a very tough racquet. The only weakness of the racquet structure is the Titanium mech part.

    Bottom line, I simply love this racquet for its incredible power and solid feel. Also its price is very low compared to new racquets. I wish new NS series will do a racquet similar to Ti-10 but for the moment they seem to concentrate on head light racquets and I won't change racquet for a while :(

    Ti10 was never head heavy - how many times i have mentioned this :)

    Hi all,

    Haha, Ti10 was never head heavy, got 1 too, sold my mp99 to buy one :)
    G5 grip, with thin overgrip on it and string, balance pt is only 280 to 285 mm compared with other rackets 310-315 mm bp like mp88, armortec, iso900 etc... Anyone have a ti10(2u) with bp > 300 mm?

    Indeed, it is powerful, not sure why. guess due to the extra stiff shaft
    and thinness of the shaft.

    As mentioned, takes time to get used to it. Caused lots of muscle aches
    initially due to stiffness.

    I have a brand new, unstrung Ti-10 here. The balance point is roughly around 294mm, which is somewhat head-heavy (but not super) :)

    If there is anybody who like to use original grip only, then after adding on the string, the balance point will be > 294mm for sure.

    Mine is authentic but new series made in 2004 one

    Mine is authentic but new series made in 2004 one, if i remember correctly
    By around 300mm, you mean 299 or 295mm?
    I would be surprised if it can reach 300 mm since mine is a g5

    i was using a proace thunderbolt II before the ti10. ti10 is really nothing compared to the thunderbolt when it comes headt heaviness. when i switch to ti10, i find it really light and first. i just got a thunderbolt( original version) this one is even less head heavy. think if you keep using a very head heavy racket, ti10 will become light.

    the thunderbolt II is suppsed to be proace's armortec equivalent. not surprising. :)

    just got my replacement Ti-10 just now. probably the last one on sale at the famed pertama kompleks in KL. yay! it turned out, two of my colleagues are also looking for this racket. :p

    i was told the thunderbolt was out way before the armortec series came into the market. infact the guy at the shop told me yonex copied proace design here. i didnt buy from him the racket but from someone selling it cheap online. anyone can verify this? initially i got ti10 cos it is also same color scheme with the thunderbolt. but now i like the matt finish better and the paintwork is really really much better. once i played double with a fren who just got some clone rackets and first time using it. we happened to clash our rackets. mine was ok without even a scratch. ;)his had a big chunk of paint chipped off!:crying:

    seem like ti10 is most readily available in singapore. bras basah, queensway all here stock of the rackets. even sportslink in town has it. but for the price that they are charging, you can take cab for airport to queensway, buy the racket and take cab back to airport still cheaper. plus yuor choice of string and tension and grip!:D

    Ti-10 is still my favourite! over mp99 and at700 (not here to stir any debate), though my skills sucks!

    have 2, one 2ug5, and the other 3ug4. greatly prefer the 2u version, coz the feeling of smashing is sooooooo shiok!

    maybe will buy a 2ug4 in the near future, coz i prefer to standardise my racquets to g4 grip.. hahaha
