    I did not say I am buying, I am just FACT FINDING first .... so far, very interesting ... it looks like an OVAL head version of the VTZF except that it is even-balanced !!

    If it is, man, that will be a REAL KILLER of a racquet !! - a REAL SAMURAI sword !!

    Carlton has something called "circometric" that's oval at 12 o'clock but gets quite "big" toward the bottom of the frame like an iso frame, you might like that?

    and if customwerqs has a frame like that, then i'm sold hehehehe

    While Yonex, Li-Ning and APACs can be found in HUGE ABUNDANCE in Malaysia, good (high end) racquets from Gosen, Carlton, Karakal etc are RARE breed here .... Yonex is just too dominant and choke off all other top competitors in Malaysia ... even strings by other brands need to search high and low for them and not cheap at all !!

    I am a person who will not buy a racquet WITHOUT feeling it first, so ... big problem here ....

    Didn't hear it called Circometric before . When it first came out on the Vapour series it was known as Optimetric, and following the Circometric link leads straight back to Optimetric (?) but I see the Circo now with pretty much the same description (must say the Kinesis looks a lot wider than Vapour) ... Whatever they call it now it was known as iso-oval before on the Z-Slash for example for lack of a proper word . Customworqs looks like a full isometric frame ...

    Like the blue but love the gold! I guess it's because I can see myself swinging the racket while playing

    Thx for the clarification. The air blade is circometric and I love the feel of the vibration thru the head frame with I hit

    Just purchased one of these. Head heavy - medium weight (i will be adding 16 g of towel) - stiff. It says to give 4 weeks of time for it to be delivered.. I will give my best review of the racquet that I can. One thing to note is the site shows everything in Euros.. and when I converted it to canadian it was only going to cost me 150.00 but when I was paying for it.. suddenly the currency was BGP and actually cost me a little over 180.00.... kind of bogus in my opinion or maybe i'm just not familiar with the currencies there?

    Hi Tranqq, the price is always displayed in which is the sign for British Pounds however you're comments are valid as you are a consumer. As such I will ask our web developer to put "GBP" in front of the "" to make it more obvious.

    The price is shown as "excluding VAT" during the customisation process as it depends what country you are having the racket shipped to as to whether VAT is applied at the end. If you are not in the European Union then you do not pay VAT. If you are in the European Union, then you must pay VAT as this is the European Law. The VAT is then added on at the end if applicable when you enter the country delivery address. The website has to be built this way to be legally correct.

    I can see your order in the system and it has not applied VAT which is correct. I am happy to void the order if you feel the website has not communicated the price clearly however I hope the above explanation is clear - that the website is set up using internationally recognised symbols for British Pounds. Please let us know.
