    ^^ Looking at your current racket choices, seems like you should have asked for VERY head heavy.

    Yea, Pro9000 is not like any of the rackets JT have used and might prefer. I have personally tailored a Pro9000 of 303mm BP for someone. While it retains it's great hammer effect feel, power and prowess, it does not feel like out and out head heavy and stiff rackets such as the Amortecs and Voltrics, which can be rather demanding though with an absolute solid and hard feel. On the other hand, Pro9000 retains these prowess and is faster and very much less demanding being less stiff than the above mentioned. It is all about getting used to.

    Managed to procure myself an immaculate conditioned RKEP Pro 9000 off JT for a heavily discounted price

    Have no idea what the specs are, since JT did not specify anything from Eric, but I am guessing 295bp and 85g? He tells me it is 89grams with BG66UM (@ 28 pounds!) and factory grip; so taking off the string weight of 3g gives you a nett of 85g (approx. I think).

    Hoping to get some good games with this bad boy come Friday, but am already dreading the 28 pound BG66UM but we'll see.

    Bought a second hand PRO 9000 to see what is it all about:

    Specs that I got: 87g + 294mm + strung with NBG 98 at 27 pounds

    Worthy rackets I have owned or played with previously:
    - APACS Tantrum 200 (owned and sold)
    - Yonex ArcSaber 10 (demoed)
    - Yonex ArcSaber Z-Slash (demoed)

    Racket reviews are very subjective and I won't rate this in numbers or in categories, but in summary, hands down, best racket that I have owned or played with. Period.

    I would rate it as good, if not better than the Tantrum 200, but sadly I have sold it off and it is too far back for me to be able to do a comparison. The ArcSabers were demoed from friends, but neither spoke to me enough for me to even remember what they felt like.

    The 9000 felt solid and with only a hint of head heaviness but manouverable enough in defence. Seriously considering trying out the PRO 6000 just for kicks to see what it might bring to the table (and I was also a click away from buying a BS9)

    Overall, an excellent racket with exceptional value for money price.

    Justin.

    i just got mine last week with an order of 10 strings and 10 grips. eric was pretty quick about it, money sent on weds morn and received it on friday eve.

    had one session with it and i'm amazed with the speed & power. lots of power for clears and smashes, defensively too fast at the moment cause i kept missing my blocks as the shuttle would pass after i swung my racket but no problems with smashing. this is pretty big coming from both BSs and VTs user.

    i'd say a racket that the MX70 & VT70 I wished should have been

    Well, he compared it to the mx70 and vt70, so pro9000 would be most logical.

    It appears that the pro6000 is not favoured, too much alike the BS11?

    Most players are looking for a racket that gives you the extra punch and naturally, a stiffer racket is the one that comes first to anyone's mind.

    It all depends on the style of play. Wristy players prefer a stiffer racket. Arm / Big swing players may prefer something a little more flexi. Just like Fu Haifeng who likes a mere mid stiff F9. Perhaps players with such style are a minority. Pro9000 is selling like hot cakes here and less takers for Pro6000. On the contrary, Pro6000 has become my current go to and i cannot step into the court without it now So easy to wield power, quick and well controlled in defence, slight head heaviness complimenting large swings which helps flexing the shaft more giving you unrivalled power. It felt so natural to me and was back to decent playing form almost immediately. The only rackets that gave me the same are BS09, Kumpoo2300, Panda Trinity 1/2/Pro.

    My take is if you like BS09, BS11, BS12, Kason F9, Panda Trinity 1/2/Pro or any other similar rackets, you are likely to love Pro6000.

    Personally i wouldnt compare Pro9000 to AT900P as the latter is a box framed traditional head heavy and stiff racket. Imho, Pro9000 plays more like SW37, SW30. Light weight semi box and semi aero frame with Titanium added to the head to give it a head heavy hammer feel yet without the demands of a traditional out n out head heavy racket. Not forgetting it is miraculously fast in defence and didnt feel like a head heavy racket at all untill you start launching overhead rockets. And the aftermath is so different too. You are launching bombs yet lactic doesnt build up and none of the strains from a demanding traditional box frame.

    I wouldnt say Pro6000 is less powerful than Pro9000. It all depends on which one you are comfortable with and your style of play. Personally i just feel that Pro6000 gives me the same power as Pro9000 with slightly lesser effort due to my style of play. Maybe i should offer some mega unbelievable promotion for Pro6000

    Just got my last batch of RKEP rackets.

    Think I'm good for a while now.

    The current model BS11 is super flexy, the older model isn't.

    As far as I can ascertain, the pro6000 is basically an old spec BS11.
