Different types of the same racket
I recently tried my friends z slashes, and they feel completely different. They bought them both from the same shop Southport Sports or something and have the same strings! The only difference i can think of was the grip. Anyone know why?? I dont think either of them are fake but the little tags like "CS Carbon Nanotube" are wearing off on one of em.

Different specifications: weight, grip size and racket tension
Each brand of manufacturers make different series of rackets. Within each series manufactured, there are different models. And within each model manufactured, there are different specifications: weight, grip size and racket tension.

It's quite common in Europe actually. Maybe it's a certain volume of each weight/gripsize combo they have to import that limits having a big variety ... Thank god for the internet
3UG3 Arc9's! Good luck ladies ... even here they had the common sense to import (3U)G4.
