Just a myth. My cheapo MIT Yonex are trouble free for years while all my more expensive MIJ Yonex have loose clones or cracked wooden grip with minimal use. So much hype, so little substance. I am done with Yonex.
rumour saying that taiwan made yonex is not so good in term of material quality, durability and the specs is untrue. is it true???would like to ask whether paul stewart's review reliable???thanks for your comment.
MP10 strung at 25lbs (22lbs is max) and NS990 at 28x26lbs (max is 25).
More than 2 years without issue other than paint.
Even some other brands high end racket also have issue....
Really depends on luck...like buying a car.
i am more toward control, placing and net player. what racquet you would recommend???
i am actually considering 8dx, 008dx and 009dx...
008dx i havent really tried before, what i do feel is the head heaviness of the 008dx > 008
so i don really like it.
if compared 008 to my arc10 the head heaviness 008 >= arc10 by a little bit. at the same time arc10 frame is abit more tiny than 008. so arc10 has better swing speed.
i feel 009dx is more stiff compared to 008 but weight of 3u almost the same if compared to arc10 and 008.
If you can handle yonex stiff racket 009dx shouldn't be a problem for generating power.
In arcsaber series, as long you could get the correct technique and timing, the power through the swing speed + the slight head heaviness = awesome power. by the way, the power that i can generate from all these 3 racket, i cant really differentiate it because their specs is too near. I just personally like that arc10 because head frame smaller that could give me faster swing speed.
as for 8dx haven't tried before.... ppl said is just a stiffer version of arc10.
Personally, i don think extra head heavy racket like voltric series has more power than arcsaber series. if a user cant handle the head heaviness of racket, basically the user cant generate power from it because swing speed too slow.
My last advice, just take 3 racket compare thier frame side by side, then feel the swing which has the head heaviness that still can give u fast swing.
