It is a bad day last night. I got a Pro9000 red(24,26 lbs) for a few weeks, only used about 10 times and just a small clashed with my daughter at 10 o'clock position last night. The racket is broken and finished. It is a very good racket, light weight with power, very good for playing double. bye!

What configuration would be a good competitor agains Yonex VT80 and Victor SW35? I was thinking about 300mm bp and 86gr? It is only available in red, green and blue? Is it 3U?

Ok, I received my 2x RKEP 9000's last week and tested them out. I firstly must say that Eric is doing a great job with the shipping. It's fast, parcel is really well packed, a lot of information when the package is send,...
Now for the rackets, I've chosen the Red 9000 with bp 300mm and a turkey blue with bp 293mm. I'm disappointed because at every hit with the feather you got the impression that the head of the racket is hollow. It makes that sound and it feels like that.
I hoped the head would have be more solid when you hit the feather as my former Carlton, Apacs, Yonex,... did.
Sad experience but I'm moving on. Hope they will change that feeling.

Just ordered green one, 300mm bp 85g can't wait to compare its performance versus VT80 4U and SW35 4U.

Just a very short summary after receiving my Pro in comparison with VT80 over 4 hrs of doubles
RKEP Pro 9000 lime green
BP : 300mm dry
Weight : 85 gm dry
String : BG 66UM 26 lbs
BP : 310mm dry
Weight : 85g dry
String : BG80P 27 lbs
Smash: VT80 > PRO9000
Clear : PRO9000 = VT80
Net : PRO9000 > VT80
Defence / Manoueuverability : PRO9000 > VT80
In a sense there is no real surprises, the PRO delivers as what I had read and what I suspected. It has power but lose out to VT80, not sure it is due to the BP-but make no mistake it is no slouch either.
I think the key selling point is that the PRO fits in very well to those who wants abit of power yet dun want to sacrifice the net touches and defensive manouevrability. Noticed that with this, I can play "offensive defence" turning defence into a trap and pushing the doubles back player to various corners.
Pass the Pro to my playing partner, and he was giving glowing review claiming that he loves the loud boom when smashing , easy to control - no adjustment needed - it's as if he has been using the Pro all along. I did not noticed the boom smashing sound but I noticed quite a few users here also mentioned it, will pay more attention next time.
things to note : the strings are different for both, and I suspect I can get even more power using BG80P on the Pro, and I did not measure the wet BP and weight, will get more details next time.
