    Hmm.... i think my friend's XD partner uses a Proace as a backup. If i remember accurately it was also a titanium dream, and it felt quite lite, and balanced, with decent repulsion and dampening. A decent racquet i wouldn't mind playing with, not sure of the price tho.

    definitely comparable to yonex n much much cheaper
    it's definitely 1 of most popular brand in malaysia. [/B][/QUOTE]

    actually they are not that cheap, paid S$120.00 string with bg85 for the ti dream as compare to yonex which is around S$160 +- but the only thing is that ti dream comes in 5U which is very good for young player.

    hmm my friend own a Sweetspot 2000. he paid RM180(bout 50US) for that...

    welll.... that racket is very lite and balanced.... although the swing is very fast..... the racquet is hard to control because it's so light......

    ...i wouldn't recommend this racquet....

    the power is poor although the swings are fast...... i only manage a baseline return to middle court when i used all my strength whereas with my Yang Yang Yoga, i can manage baseline to baseline with lesser strength......

    ...welll..... still i'll recommend Yonex... although maybe Proace and Yonex Felt The Same.... but there is still a slight difference that makes Yonex the top of the business......

    I have been using Proace Ti Dream for 6 months and adapting to it well. Agreed that the swing is fast, the repulsion is good but I have no problem controlling it due to its lightness. I was told Yonex Ti-7 have almost equivalent feel & light, like the Proace Ti series. The only difference is definitely the price.
    Tried a head heavy MP77, smashes generated are powerful, send baseline to baseline with less effort but i could not control it when defending and when making touch shots. Choice of racket that suit a player is a matter of personal preference.

    a shop down at bra basah singapore claimed that the proace racket in Malaysia are of lower grade that's why they are much cheaper, what do you proace owners think?

    Sales pitch, maybe. Buy in my shop rather than across the causeway lah....
    Something like Yonex JP versus Yonex CH are of diferent grade/quality ?
    Or fake/clone Yonex versus original Yonex ?
    Now Proace have just join the bandwagon !!!

    i heard pro ace is owned by a malaysian or a malaysian company.before that all pro ace rackets that were manufactured resembled carlton rackets....UK connection?
    if was only after being taken over by the malaysian did pro ace started to take off.
    one time it was even the supplier to badminton academy of malaysia now taken over by gosen.
    currently a few of the malaysian national players still use pro ace rackets but they have to cover up the cone have the big G on their string.
    even choon hann used to use pro ace 55.....
    i think proace rackets are cheaper here bcoz we have a bigger badminton playing population.....the shops may have a lower margin by selling it cheaper but they'll definitely make up for it in higher turnover.

    Thumbs up PROACE RULES....

    I havent known about Proace racquet until I went back to Vietnam last summer.... Those racquets are very durable and cheap (only 60 cad) and the tension is up to 27lbs ( I havent tried that yet )... I reccommand the proace sweetspot 950 (red color, my favorite)... the racquet is lighter compare to yonex mp77 and ti 7 long, about 85 gr ( I didnt weigh it though ), fast swing, and flexible --> good smash, defense..... I really recommand it for allround player.

    One of my friend used the Proace sweetspot 1000.. this racquet is even lighter than the sweetspot 950.. preferable for defensive player..... and the color is blue --> so girly ..... thats y i didnt get the sweetspot 950 instead lol

    hmm... hayisan...

    well actually we cannot judge whether it's a good racquet or not from the weight of it...... we judge it by the performance aspect
