    Just got my hands on a demo, can't wait to try it out this week!


    its quite a simplistic but pretty racquet with its pearlescent white paint job and brown poo like undertone.

    Had a quick session with it the other night, can't quite explain it but it felt natural in my hands.

    The smashes I could get out of this racquet I would rate as adequate. I couldn't quite unlock a harder hit but it wasn't weak at all. I had hoped it would have a tad more "oomph" but in other categories it performed very well.

    Defensively it was very maneuverable for a bulky frame, and accuracy was good.

    Timing was very good, no miss hits to report that evening.

    I would say it's got a better "feel" than my XP70 (hollow-like)

    Overall it's a very good doubles racquet!



    Racquet specs:
    BG65 @ 24x26 lbs
    1 over grip
    Total weight: 96g

    it's not my ideal string but at 26 lbs, it wasn't too bad haha...


    "Power - It does not have the smash power to finish the rally (like a VT80) but enough power to ensure the shot after the first smash will finish the rally. For an even balance racket the power is impressive as good as can be expected."

    i agree with this post from Smashthecock

    Yeah, it's missing that finishing touch to it. Using a more repulsive string helps, however HH rackets do this better.

    Racket review is always the same... depend on preference and ability to wield it...

    Stringing is another preference... some like high tension and some prefer low tension..

    Taking into consideration the rackets i used to own:

    heavy head- N90/N90II/AT900T/AT900P/VTZF/VT80/NRZP..

    balance head - Gosen shiden/duoforce/Arc10/Arc 11/N50/ N50II/ARC z-slash...

    light head - NR700/NR800/NS9900/Gosen 6000pro/Gosen Ouji

    if you classified Duoforce under the class of balance... I still prefer Shiden due to his attacking attribute/design/quality... Duoforce is not a bad racket, it is more of a user-friendly racket which it will fare well in every department. just that i feel that this racket is " jack of all trades but master of none". the only surprise of this racket to me is that it looks head heavy but very agile when using it. Not bad for adidas as a new comer! maybe the 2nd gen from them will be better!

    "Looks head heavy"? The designated spec is bp 283mm +/-3

    Visually it looks like a chunky box frame cross section and non aerodynamic, but upon swinging is quite light.

    I guess if you know beforehand the bp should be around 283 you just look at it as fat and hollow

    Hiho

    Yesterday I got my adidas duoforce
    The racket looks really good.
    I must order in France, since the duoforce is not to get in Germany.

    I can not wait to play with it on Tuesday

    Here some fast pictures :

    perfect choice!

    with white strings, no other color grip works on this racket. black is meh, white is the one, just get a bunch and change it every few weeks.

    however, if you do want to, you can try to match the string color with the grip color. the white duoforce is like an empty canvas.

    Hi wildy, I live in France, and I want to know in Gemany if there is any site I can buy a racket, specially rackets Victor, because I can't find them in my country.
    Thanks,
