Sotx Woven 9 replacement
I have been using the SOTX woven 9 for quite sometimes and absolutely loving it. Unfortunately, the North America reseller doesn't seem to carry it anymore.
What would you guys recommend as a replacement? I am looking for something at similar specs and price (around 100$ USD).

If I recall, the Woven 9 is kind of light, even balanced to slightly head heavy, mid stiff?
I was looking for an adult sized racket for my kid and found a good sale on Babolat's N-Force series at Source for Sports (I know that store exists in Toronto). There is four or five rackets in that series with varying weights, balances and flexibilities. All under $80. If you can find them, you can swing 'em about and see what you think. I would guess that the N-Force Lite might be a good match for your Woven 9.

@Wong8Egg an AT900T would be a great replacement!
If not, I think you should try and test-drive one of the newer Panda racquets - the Precision Pro or the Revelation. I'd venture a guess that the Revelation would be a closer match, given that it is like the W9, a fully woven racquet.
@Fidget , the Woven9 is not exactly light or head-light either, you can get them at 86-89 grams and 290-300 BP dry specs. The shaft itself is pretty darn stiff but none of this prevents the racquet from being very fast and responsive and extremely stable.

My bad.:-( I misremembered the W9. What a great series of rackets overall, though!

You can still buy the sotx woven series of rackets from e78.com
