So you're saying you didn't like to test 20 different rackets, even at the price they cost ?
I think this forum feeds equipment obsession, but ...testing different rackets/strings is superb.
You're completely right on this service you mentioned but shops this specialized are unseen in my region.
Plus, I think the range of rackets you can adapt to is quite big, it just takes time (and a blindfold to stop drooling over new "and potential better" ones)

customworqs.com lets you customize your own racket but unless you absolutely know what you want, it's an expensive experiment.

Lol... I had fun I guess, but it was affecting my game having to adapt to a new different racket every 2 months or so. And now that I know my preffered specs, I don't even get swayed by any new rackets from Yonex, Victor etc if the specs don't seem to match me. Not even if it has catapult technology or hyper nanopreme technetium fibres.

Don't be dissing on my Catapult rackets homie
I too seem to have settled on on a preffered spec.
Mid-stiff and BP from 300-305mm.

Some of you may know Im sponsored by Eric, but it wont affect anything I say about the rackets.
So I had my first real session with my three new XP70 87 300. With ZM65 29lbs ECP, I had a really good time, exept breaking two strings... It feels really solid, for a racket being so fast, the power and speed was supreme never tried anything like it. Will report back soon, if I dont break the last XP70s strings

^ Dang... I've been meaning to try those specs... I had better order one or two before you grab them all

You guys are as compulsive as addicts!
There's gotta be a 12-step program for you, somewhere.

Arghhh. This close in pulling the trigger to get a XP70

How about comparing XP70 with C7. Any ideas?

I literally just bought the MX60 30 minutes ago. I'm contacting Eric about the XP70 now, sigh. I better get a lot of stringing done this summer and next year at university to keep up with all these purchases -_-.
Before I kick myself for choosing the wrong specs, I should ask: if I would prefer something less stiff than VT80PG and every so slightly less stiff, which specification of weight and bp should I choose? Since I will most likely get it strung with NBG98 and RKEP G09 on it.

^ Lol... so i got you looking here also.
I'd say the XP60 feels a tad less or almost same stiffness as my VT80.
XP70 for sure would be less stiff and would be a safe choice.
Bp wise, 300mm would be similar. Weight will depend on your preference. If you're playing plastic, heavier is better. Say, 87-88g.

You'll be happy to know I also bought ClearTune for iOS. Yeah that's right, I read that thread too lol. I've been keeping track of all my rackets, strings, and tensions. Time to add another parameter to my growing excel file =D
What's your reasoning for the heavier is better for plastic?
