Thread: Kason C7 vs TSF500 SHOOTOUT!
08-11-2012, 07:41 PM #52
The MX80 generally has a BP of around 300 too, so I don't think it would be head heavy enough. It certainly had a different feel, so you might like it. Don't forget the TSF500 either - I think in some ways it's better than the C7.
You know, I'm almost tempted to revisit the Armortec 900 Technique. If I wasn't knee-deep in rackets I'd probably pick one up to try again.

However, i'm sure that both has it pros and cons. Im looking at C7 because I wanted something similar to my BS LYD and slightly head heavy so most of my friends suggested meteor x70/80 and C7. Bout the tsf500, I haven't look into it in detail. Have u made a detail performance comparison between TSF500 and C7 in this thread already?

Seeing that's what this thread is about, I'd say yeah, it's probably in here somewhere!
The C7 is a bit 'soft' for me these days. It doesn't have much torsional stability outside the sweetspot, and as I'm just a rank amateur, I don't really need a racket that punishes me for being a hack. I need all the help I can get!
You might like the C7 though, it's hard to know. *shrug*
Buy one and see what you think.

To me, C7 is less stiff than mx80 but more powerful due to its head heaviness. But it is not as accurate and speedy as mx80. MX80 allows me to have more variety of playing styles but C7 restricts it. C7 is certainly good in attack particularly.
I am also very interested to know how BS LYD performs as compared to C7 and MX80. Someone pls provide us some info

I've tried compared my BS LYD to mx80 and C7 before but not the rest.
x80 - tried for 2~3 games continuosly, does not have any problem like tiring my arm.
Apart from timing issue as it is relatively much stiffer than my lyd the maneuverability and head heaviness are just fine.
C7 - At first don't really get use to the head heaviness, feels like breaking my arm when I 1st use it to smash as thats my very 1st time using a 305bp racquet. I started from 285bp apac lethal until i got my 295bp BS LYD. But after I got used to it find it much easier to generate smash power compared to my LYD but of course my reaction to return shuttle also slows down as im still not use to the head heaviness
So... should I get the victor mx 300bp or the C7 305bp? Dilemma...
Oh ya Maklike, whats the bp of the TSF500? its overall lighter than C7?

My C7 is 304, and the TSF500 is 300 - the same as all the Victor Meteors I've owned (five in total). 4mm might not seem like much, but it's very obvious in the C7.
For the record I still think the MX60 is the best Meteor for players of my skill level (intermediate club).

For u to choose between mx80 and C7, it depends on what is the reason of you looking for them as compared to your current BS LYD. Are u looking for maneuverability, accuracy, defense, speed or "crispy" feel which MX80 can satisfy u or are u looking for power or attacking kind of playing style, then C7 may satisfy u.
Just my 2 cents. Anyone pls comments also based on your experience.......

The problem I have with the SW35 (and I've tried really REALLY hard to like that racket) is that while some might be 305, it doesn't carry its weight at 12 o'clock but instead evenly distributed throughout the head, which is not my preferred feel. If you want tro try one, I'd recommend the 4U.
The reason the MX70 is not so popular, is because it's too close to the 80 in spec. That and I suspect it's blue/silver colour is not as well received by consumers as the red/gold of the 80.
I don't think you should discount the TSF500 in all of this. Since I first did this comparo, my opinion of the 500 has just pipped ahead of the C7. It's a great feeling doubles racket, good overall stiffness....feels amazing with BG66U....and just does everything well.

Hi Maklike... would you say that the C7 plays similar to that of a MX60 but with heavier head? Am using MX60 myself but at times would wish that it will be a little head heavier for extra smash power. Thanks
08-28-2012, 06:15 AM #66
Nah, the C7 is closest to the AT900T. If you want a head heavier MX60, you'll have to either add lead tape to it or wait for this new company called White Label Badminton or something as I hear they're doing something along those lines

I see... so is there any racket that has this profile Soo0ooF and HH0ooooHL ? How is the C7 compared to MX60? Is it stiffer that MX60 or the feel is totally different?
08-28-2012, 10:47 AM #68
it is 4/5 stiff and 4/5 head heavy based on the official website, can hardly compare to C7 since it's shaft is more flexible than MX70, just a point of view (please don't complain >.<)
