    Sorry I misunderstood, so it's stiffer than the vt80?

    To be honest, I never found the Vt-80 to be particularly stiff cause it's so head heavy with such a skinny shaft....
    It's probably more comparable to some other MX series but I can't say since I have only used the JJS and the MX80 briefly.

    Okay, thanks for the input Elisha! I tried the VT 80 and found it pretty stiff. It wasn't unusable but was uncomfortable after playing for a while. likewise with the MX80. Hm do you think the XP70 would be fine for me?

    If you found the VT80 too stiff, probably not. A softer racket would be better, like the XP80, MX60, Bs12, TK8000...

    I thought that those rackets would suit me too, but I bought a MX 60 thinking it would. However I found it too flexy for me. I'm currently using a Nanospeed 800 which is pretty old, it says stiff on the stats. Any suggestions would be great!

    Keep trying as many as you can. You'll be surprised as to what suits you better as opposed to what you want to suit you.
    I wanted the Vt80 to suit me and it did power wise just not for speed and maneuverability.
    I never thought the Thruster would suit me but was curious cause I was able to get it locally from Yo's and decided to give it a try after it won on cost compared to the AS11.

    Now the XP70 is 10/10 when it comes to value for money whether or not it ends up being one of my favourites!

    You don't expect much from it for the cost, but it sure proves you wrong pretty quick. Unfortunately I won't be able to play again until next Tuesday :-(

    Could someone tell us what is the shaft diameter of the XP70 and xp60?
    My PRO6000 is 7.8 mm and my PRO9000 (i've got 3 of them) varies between 7.7 ant 7.76 mm, all measured in the middle of the shaft. Pretty thick, I think.

    measured mine:

    xp70/60: 24mm
    pro9000: 25mm

    circumferences at 3 points on the shaft

    I chose the XP-60 with the specs:
    BP:300
    WT:87 (with GO-1 91g)

    String: BG-66U
    LBS:30

    A little about myself, Im a 14 years old boy from Denmark. Playing in the second highest leauge. I train 5-7 times a week of 1.5-3 hour each.

    The racket is not very stiff, but something in between stiff and very stiff.

    I like the racket a lot so far, but I have only had two hours so far. I had a little trouble finding the sweetspot, but when I did OMG nothing beats it. The steepnes and power was from another world!

    In the defence it was quick, but not lightning quick. I could pull of some shots, I usually wouldnt get back. On drives it was amazing, just a little flick of the wrist, and the shuttle just went all the way to the baseline. I could hold the shuttle much longer, than what Im used to, and gave me some easy points.

    At the net it wasnt anything special, nothing bad to say about it, but nothing special either. No matter what racket I use I feel this.

    As you can probably see I like this racket a lot, when get 100% used to the sweetspot this is gonna be a SUPER racket. You better start loading up on those rackets, because soon they will all be in my bag

    The blue looks nice. 14 years old and 30lbs?
    Did someone recommend that tension to you?
    The higher the tension the smaller the sweet spot not to mention higher risk of injury if your technique is not perfect!

    30lbs crank so it doesnt really count, it feels more like 28ECP, I have been playing with this tension in more than half a year. Most boys in Denmark at my level use high tension, so nothing special. The sweet spot is just a bit different because of Im used to isometric, and this is a semi-iso.

    As long as it keeps you out of trouble and away from addictive video games, nothing wrong with it. Hope my 10 yr old son will be like that too.

    Eh? Forget about all this guessing and just use stringbed frequency...
