    You were right! It's a very comfortable and user friendly racket. Easy power. And the crazy repulsion off the stringbed is very addictive.
    LOL. So what about those two XP 70s? You are so fickle!

    Yeah, I know, I'm sure glad there's no law against polygamy with rackets.

    I'll still use the XP70's for playing with new partners, in case of clashing it won't hurt my pocketbook so much. And also for when I'm not in the mood to smash as much but play accurate placement instead.

    Adipower Pro review

    Finally got a chance to play the whole evening with this racket that I got this week. The first time earlier this week didn't work out as I couldn't feel the crispness and repulsion/power of the stringbed. Thinking back, it was probably because the racket had just been strung 2 hrs prior and maybe the strings hadn't settled yet.

    But now I can really hear and feel the sharp "paarp" and crispness with each shot and wow is this a lively and repulsive racket! And by lively, I mean it has a nice communicative feel to the hand on strike, allowing you to control the direction of your shot and also modulate the amount of power to your shot.

    And by repulsive, I mean it has a highly efficient power output to input ratio. Don't know whether it's due to the reverse tapered shaft or the power box frame (or the zylon and titanium fibres) but I've never had a shuttle explode off the stringbed with such ease even with other rackets strung similarly with ZM62 at 23x24 lbs.

    Accuracy is understandably slightly less than a stiffer racket (eg. XP70, MX70) so extra care must be taken when driving and smashing very close to the tape or the lines.

    Defense is surprisingly easy with some finger power and a flick of the wrist. Despite a non aero frame, during fast play there's no noticeable lag.

    Fast drops and fake smash slice drops are also easy as the head has enough mass to act on the shuttle.

    All in all a surprisingly excellent racket for a newcomer to the market. I'm still shaking my head in disbelief at the amount of repulsion from the stringbed. Very addictive.

    Dry specs:
    86.2g, bp293mm, headweight 37.5g

    Glad you like it. It surprisingly an excellent doubles racket. That bulky frame is so deceiving and it totally surprises you on how maneuverable it is.

    Yeah I thought I had sworn off power box frame since using MX/BS aero frames for the past 2 years, but the power this thing puts out for the wt is surprising to say the least.

    I'd imagine at the top end of the spec wt range ie 90g would be better for singles than doubles, whereas yours and mine and kwun's are at the bottom end of the wt at 86.2-86.4g, which is better for doubles.

    Did you by any chance measure the BP once strung without an overgrip?
    Since I received mine strung, it was 303~304mm and with a G09 its at 290mm

    Are you sure? Are you married and has your wife found out how many racquets you have ? If your wife knows you have had such a polygamous spending pattern, retribution will be swift!5

    Hehe... she knows... and when she finds out I have a new racket, there's a new pair of shoes in her closet by the end of the week.

    That's a light noodle compared to the super stiff head heavy SW35.

    As long as the new pair of shoes cost less than your new racket, it should be ok...
    When my wife found out that I got 2 new rackets and a 9329 bag, I ended up getting her an iPhone 5s
