    Hello people.. I would like to query those who owns both Yonex Muscle Power 55 and Yang Yang Tactic (8500 or 9000).

    Since the two rackets are famous and top of the line models, I am having a difficulty in comparing them in terms of power, control, durability...etc.
    So, I would like to make a favour: which one of the two rackets you like best?

    p/s: please don't tell me to buy the rackets, or tell me that it's your skill and strength that matters; i would just like to ask your true opinion based on your own experience.
    p/s: this is only a freelance question, no hard feelings!

    If I did not remember wrong, u put a thread something like this before??? I thought u already made ur decision on MP55 already...

    Anyway, I heard YangYang has a new model in Tactic series, it's YY JSamash TM-8000. According to spec, it's even more head heavy, but still well balanced. So, I think it's more close to MP55.

    Hope this will help.

    Sorry, forget to give u the comparison, well, maybe mine is not a fair one:

    1. YangYang Tactic 8500 (about 1 yr, 3U, BG65 @21lb): very balanced, good overall racket. I use it mainly in double play (net). Excellent control, enough power, quick response.

    2. MP55 (borrowed from a friend, for 10 min, 2U???, BG65@23+ lb): a little bit head heavy for me. Good power, if I can find the sweet spot. Control not as comfortable as YY Tactic. However, it's may just because 10 min trial did not let me get used to this racket yet. Plus, the string tension kinda high for me.
