    Default Astec Aeroprestige 90s

    Specs:

    Weight (g) : 88-90 (3U)
    Length (mm) : 675
    Balance (mm) : 290 +/- 2
    Shaft Flex : 8.5 +/- 0.1, Stiff
    Frame : Iso + Mid Plus
    Recommended Tension : 28 lbs
    Technology : Astec Aeroleap Technology, Midplus Aero Frame System

    Frame shape looks similar to Mizuno GP80. Cone shape, handle and shaft length is similar to Yonex Arc10. Unique feature of this racquet are ridges that run the entire perimeter of the frame on both sides. This can be seen on the last picture.

    This particular piece is slightly heavier than the stated manufacturing specs.

    It was sent to me from Indonesia. The retail price for this racquet is listed at 2 million rupiah (about SGD292) at their website.

    I heard you could probably get it from Batam. Make a day trip there and visit the sports shop in the shopping centres. I am planning to do just that myself within the next couple of weeks.

    Yep... The 2 mil IDR Racket >.<... Actually it was 1.9mil IDR in Local Store . I saw, hold, and make a photos of it. I'm planning to post it earlier but hasn't got the time yet T_T....

    I actually swing it several times... But without string, it can't be certain. This thing is too pricy for me -.-... I'm looking forward for the Aero Hurricane or Aero Tornado...

    Here's the picture I took at the local store.

    the black + silver = nice

    the black + gold & black + red = bling bling

    too shiny for my personal taste.

    I'm conservative

    I got a few games out of it the past couple of months. Very powerful and a head heavy racquet. As a result I don't find it as fast and nifty but I still find it adequate for quick reflex shots and net play. Surprisingly easy to play with as I think this is due to the large sweet spot.
