I was only playing around before
Thanks for sharing though. Can anyone else with an F9 offer input on whether it has a weak frame?

im still wondering coz it stated on d racket 28lbs is d max tension for F9..but FHF,hes maybe strung his F9 more than 30++..is FHF using different F9??so far i strung my F9 with BG66 and 24lbs...i think maybe i need to change it to higher tension with NBG98 string..

I don't know specifically about Kason, but for Yonex the max tension listed on the racket is the max tension covered by warranty, not the max possible. There really shouldn't be any problems with stringing up to 30 pounds as long as you have a good stringer, people do it all the time.

here is my problem..i strung my F9 with bg66 24 lbs..but when i stroke,d shuttle only went to the opponent mid court..
i have another racket RSL heat 9500 with bg80 power and i strung it with 25lbs..easily to get power smash and when i stroke,d shuttle easily reach opponent baseline..
i tought with lower tension,the power is greater..is it because of bg80 power and bg66?

I like my F9. It's awesome. Never had any problems with the frame. I'm super cautious about clashing. I'd rather lose the point than clash. Yeah, I'd say the racket is harder to control around the net since its so springy and flexible. Its shaft feels very light, maybe even hollow. I strung mine with BG 95 at 27lbs. Ive always used 25-27. Prob not going to go higher than 27 since the racket is doing what I want it to do: attack, win, and in a less demanding way.Compared to my panda power ultra 2, the f9 has a flexible shaft so I need to hit the shuttle earlier to account for this. And my f9 is lighter, more forgiving and easier to play with. (I still play with both). F9 has great smashing power, but with better technique, should be even stronger. Meaning can handle more.. Overall, I like this racket a lot for its attacking qualities. Here in the U.S. it's not easy to find this racket, seems it has more of an Asian market. I got it in Asia. If you can, buy it, it is a great racket.

Speaking of it being hard to get in the US, I agree. Have to ship it from stores in Asia which isn't as convenient.
Badminton Nation, the new distributor for Li-Ning badminton stuff in the US, also has distribution rights for Kason. I've already spoken to them about possibly getting some Twister and TSF series pieces shipped with the next order in a few months. If more of you talk to them and demonstrate a greater interest in getting some over here, I think they might be more likely to oblige!

bought the F9, and luckily since im playing 3-4 hours every session i wont go for above 26lbs as above than that tires me out quickly(scared when i see Mr.Seafood racket), the shop keeper told me max tension (not the stated one) is 28 for main n 29 for cross, so max tension as suggested by the shopkeeper is 28 for social player, pro player dont mind la cuz they got many2 spare racket
better stick with lower tension than mentioned unless u have tons of spare racket IMHO
will give out brief reviews on it cheer

Just to share, I was also having trouble generating power with BG80P. Had no problems with BG66UM <--the only string I use now.

used my F9 with Bg66 26lbs last nite, was really getting into it until the string snapped hahaha. 1 day old string bad string job combine with bad durability string haha. will go for BG66UM to try with this afterward.
anyway kason F9 is very all-rounder i would say, still need to adjust with accuracy, but one thing i notice it is a very easy racket to use, and shuttle leave the string bed easily compared with my other racket, it is light and fast racket, power department not bad, (MY HAND IS NOT FUHAIFENG HAND REMEMBER), it shines in defense, and last second drop or smash or clear.
the swing speed is also astonishingly fast comparable with VT70 but with less head heaviness and lighter, i did not use much effort in lob and backhand. but accuracy is a lil bit lacking will have a go for a month and come out with another review for it.
a review from a noob who owns VT70, Gosen Ryoga Issen, Superwave 36, and other rackets.

im loving F9 evenmore now hahahaha

updated review, have some timing issues with jump smashes, i swing the racket too fast, but so far it works and shines well in the other area.

player's rackets are way more different than ours,and for ur info,their rackets can take up too 35lbs of stringing,same with yonex,so if u ever got an IP model of yonex or whatsoever and if the price is reasonable,TAKE IT. =)
