Visiting Direct Sports UK website above, they list racket specs as measured by them for every racket, but for APP they list it as flex shaft(?) 61mm according to their measurement method presumably weight deflection.
In comparison, AZP is 56mm, MX70 53mm, MXJJS 55mm, VZTF 53mm, VT80 55mm, ZSPD 61mm, ARC9FL 60mm.
Does that make sense? Is the APP reverse taper shaft that flexy?
To me felt slightly less stiff than MX70 and VT80, but not that flexy.

Another session with the APP. This is really turning out well as a future singles racket.
For doubles I do feel that I'm not strong enough to react as quick as I'd like though.
I'm wondering if the Adipower Duoforce might be a option for doubles.
Anyone got input on a good adidas racket for doubles, for someone who can only wield APP for singles?

^ what're your specs ie wt, bp, and head wt if possible?

^ Specs on my APP?
How do you messure the head wt?
APP before stringing a regripping: 291 / 87,30
APP after stringing an regripping: 290 / 98,50

Duoforce is a great doubles racket (it's good for singles too). I had good reaction times and smashes were very good (offc not as powerful as head heavy rackets, but powerful enough)

Using that method I get a head wt @ 41,25g

Wouldn't it require me knowing the head wt of the duoforce to make use of that comparison?

Head wt is most likely going to be different for everyone (assuming the exact same racket), the tilt of the racket (height of the base for the handle) and scale precision will make it differ. I think that measure would only be useful to compare rackets that are measured by the same person.

^ If his scale is accurate to +/-0.01g as is mine, then we should get the same numbers.
And even if the racket is not perfectly level, the measurements are not that far off that we can't compare.

^ For example, if you bought 1 lb of sugar in HK and I bought 1 lb of sugar in Canada, we both should have the same mass and weight of sugar, shouldn't we?
