    Default [New] FORZA rackets

    Hello I have discovered some new FZ rackets from their website. Here some pics and specs. If you have one, please share your experiences. The paint job is different compared to the tide, the materials are top of the edge and the specs sounds promising.

    Specs:

    weight: 86g
    balance point: 290mm
    flex: Stiff
    shaft: 40 T - Kevlar Reinforced CNT U-HM

    Yes,

    I have played with the 10000VS and 9000 rackets and they are both great rackets. The 10000VS as said in the name is Very Stiff so some strength is required for this one! it also has a unique frame design to allow it guaranteed string tension of 35lbs (but tested up to 40lbs, but forza don't guarantee this) the 10000VS has nice power and accuracy as expected...

    the 9000 has quite a "light" feel to it, but there is also some good power coming from the triple taper shaft... this is going to be a popular racket... we have both the 9000 and 10000VS in stock, I can't comment on the 10000S or 9900 as we don't have these...

    find us at Facebook.com/badmintonalpha or on twitter.com/badderz_alpha


    e
    dit: the blue flashes on the 10000vs look great!

    All the BP are 290+mm. So I take it that they are all Head Heavy?

    I have the Kevlar 10000S and N-Forze 80 Slim in my bag at the moment. Played with both tonight and the Kevlar with 35lbs stringing. It was superb! The feel was excellent and there is plenty of power for singles and speed for doubles. I would say that the racket is even balanced to slightly head heavy.

    The N-Forze is a nice doubles racket. It is fast because it's head light and aerodynamic. You can't get as much power out of it as with the Kevlar though. The two-tone color paint job is very nice and shiny btw!

    I tested and played with a lot of Forza rackets over the last few years, and most of them were great. But the Kevlar 10000S is my absolute favorite! And with a max recommended tension of 40lbs it's very strong too!

    I think the Kevlar 10000S (or VS for the extreme hard hitters) will be, together with one of the best all round rackets, the Kevlar 3000 Light, my best selling rackets of this season!

    Yeah, it's pretty awesome! You don't see racket paintings like that very often! They are available in Gold-Silver, Blue-Silver, Purple-Silver, Green-Silver and Red-Silver (Denmark Special edition). They are all head light and have a slim frame and/or shaft, so they are lightning quick!

    If you point the silver side to your opponent, it may look like lightning too

    The N-Forze series are head light and the Super slim 100 and the slim 80 are stiff! Of both rackets, you can find pictures above. There are head light and (very) stiff rackets in the Titanium series too.. Take a look at fzforza.com or pm me if you want more details..

    The Ti. 299 N-Light is head light and stiff.. I shipped Forza rackets to Singapore before, so that's a possibility. I don't know if and where you can buy Forza rackets there..

    Let me know if your interested!

    Played with the N-Forze Slim 60, 70 and 80. Funny, they are designed with different colors on both sides, but one side is always zilver chrome. The 60 has the most flexible shaft and 70 is a little stiffer with the 80 as the stiffest of the 3. I didn't like the 60 at all because it was too flexible and it was not accurate enough for me. But the 70 and 80 are good rackets depending of what you are looking for in a racket. The 80 was the stiffest one.

    We were already joking that we must blind our opponents by twisting the rackets before receiving the serve. For the head lightness of the rackets, there is some decent power. A friend of mine bought the Slim 60, but already discovered some quality issues with the paint. Hopefully it's not representative for the other Slim series. If you are used to rackets like the Yonex NS9900, give it a try. Haven't played with the 100 Slim, but expect to be a good racket also.
