Well, the fact that I have forgotten how exactly the MX80 vibrates against the shuttle since I used MX80 for just a while before I found it too stiff for me. I compared between Adipower Pro and MX-London though, both with the same string BG80 @ 24lbs done by the same stringer on the same day. They were pretty much the same in the shock damping department, I would say both are very "lively" contrasting to either Yonex or Li Ning. However, the shock/vibration sensations are quite different which probably caused by the tapered shaft design on Adipower Pro.

Talking about the tapered shaft design, I think it does really work to help to generate more power from the Adipower Pro. An effortless overhead clear could easily send the shuttle from baseline to the opposite baseline. Be mindful though, a flick serve and defensive lift can easily go out.
I do really like and admire the simplistic design of Adipower Pro and took another few pictures of mine... It is such a pity that I have been struggling with my elbow condition for quite a while. Otherwise, I could enjoy playing with this racket more often.

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 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.

This racquet is a little scary to me right now.... Might be giving up my thrusters over it

Just had it arrive today and had a 2 hour doubles session with it. It's scary because I wasn't expecting to find something I liked more than my tk8000's for a while. Oh well put a week in and I'll decide what I'm using for the rest of this years competitions.

Where on planet earth can you not get one? Lots of international/national stores have them.

After having used this racquet a few weeks I have to say that it is really nice. It's kind of weird though because the string area is even bigger than on my thruster 8k which is already a box frame. Despite that the adipower pro is actually quite fast. The weirdest thing to me though is the handle size, mine is g5 but is slightly bigger than a victor g5 especially at the butt cup where the lump is quite large. The biggest thing about this racquet is that the power is great ad it has been said many times. I find it has the power that head heavier ones have but it has a nicer feeling balance to my hand.

interesting, coz mine is G4 and i find it just a tad smaller than younex G4. or at least the combination of yonex handle + original grip + overgrip compared to the same on the APP.
the weird thing is that the balance of the racket is around 292 but it really feels beefy, i guess the overall weight is close to 90g, when most of the other 3U rackets i have are closer to 85-87.

thought i'd move to the appropriate thread...
i'd say the stiffness and bp is between arc 10 and 7
it is noticeably stiffer than duoforce

How is this racket compare to ARC11, such as shaft stiffness, speed, power?
It seem that it have similar balance point and weight.
