    Thanks for the tip. I'm wishing I can wield the racket's potential power.

    Dimcorner, when you say swing completely through the shots, does it mean more arm movement with lots of wrist action?

    I noticed that the Ti-10 doesn't get as much power as other racquets when you just jab your wrist quickly at it (like a quick wrist only motion and then stopping). Gets better when you use your wrist only to do a full swing throu (looping after the contact instead of stopping the racquet) and tons better when you incorporate your arm.

    My Precision is very good at quick wrists pops, but I can feel that the shaft gives away a little when doing full power smashes. I can probably get stronger smashes on the Ti-10 but have to be almost spot on. With the precision I can get about 80% of my power very easily and consistently, but don't think I can match total power output of Ti-10.

    I'm definitely going to say it's easier to play with the 3rd gen than it was with the 1st Gen. The new one is more forgiving of off-center hits. I think you will be fine with it if you are willing to give it time and do slight adjustments in timing and swings. I prefer the Ti-10 over my Z-slash (which I sold).

    I haven't tried the precision but I'm thinking about getting it too. But spending too much on rackets wouldn't do me any good and I would rather spend it on proper training lessons in the near future. :)

    Dim, do you happen to know if the ti-10 and arcsaber 8dx has the same stiffness? I'm not sure if I already read it somewhere. :)

    Stiffness they are close but they bend differently. Ti10 has a longer shaft and bends further down. Yechnicslly the shaft is stiffer I guess.

    I've been using my ti-10 a lot now than my arc8dx. You were right Dim that it has less power when just jabbing my wrist. I was trying to drop from the backcourt with just using a fast wrist action but keeps on hitting the net. Maybe I need a little more time to get used to it. It's very quick on net play and drives. I love how fast it is on drives. :)
    It is my primary racket now because its less tiring compared to my 8dx. :)

    I don't own a Dx8 but I played a few sessions with one. I think the dx8 is a little quicker for smash returns and is easier to play with. I feel that the Ti10 is a more balanced racket. I personally can get more power out of the Ti10 but I have to concentrate a bit more for it. I honestly think that you should not worry so much about ultimate power. Since its a fairy balanced racket it's going to be poetry decent in all areas.

    As fire getting tired, maybe you are not letting the racket work with you. I find that I can get plenty of power by taking a less hurried swing and setting up sooner. I swing all the way through and let the weight of the racket help. Practice with playing a game smashing at 70% power but concentrating on hitting it just right. You will hear it.

    Also, what tension are you stringing at? I an playing it at 25 to 26 pounds.

    do you guys think that adding extra 2 grips to TI-10 3rd gen will have any problems with it?

    thanks.

    I played with 2 extra to try it out once. Felt ok, but not the same. I lost some feel on it and didn't feel as strong.

    @moore_shady

    probably you have the heavier version? I have it as well and it takes a lot of power to smash with it; comes with the very stiff shaft. It is a attacking players racket, there is not much doubt in that department. It's a racket that only advanced players can use to its potential

    And yes; you have to swing through; a wrist action does not generate enough power for this racket.

    Don't forget there are three generations of it ;). All different from each other even (slightly but noticeable) ...

    As a general review, I am using Gen 3 3U, i feel much more feel and control with two different Ti-10 (one with AC62 and another with BG85). Power is good for me although I am using my NS9900 as my main.

    After re-string and new grip (i swap 1 of my NS9900 with my fren Ti-10), it may be my main then :)
