Type v is more a double rackets.. 2g of grommet strip weight/damper on the head is a big different.
I only compare type v with Shiden.
Type v is slightly wider on the frame head> bigger sweetspot
type v has Shorter shaft > better manoeuvring
Type v is lighter overall> less tiring on arms
Both can deliver very fast and flat drive.
Type v is less stiff shaft than Shiden.
Actually what gosen sacrificing is the smashing power as compare to Shiden. This is yet to confirm with the grommet strip if added..swing weight and swing speed may change...
Gosen egg headed frame give a very satisfying and astonishing sound when hitted..
what exactly do you mean "don't attempt"? is it that you won't get the most out of it if you're Mike T.? or that you would actually get hurt since it's totally not the Mike T. playing style?
you can't get hurt playing with balanced racket... when i means don't attempt if you are mike tyson, means that you are a hardsmasher accustomed to heavy head racket... after getting used to balance racket, you may not be able to switch back to heavy head rackets.
I was a hard smasher last time... but when you playing with good players, it is not so easy that you can kill them with only one smash! some players may purposely lift the shuttle for you to smash them till you run out of strength and breath.
I want to control the rally, counter attack under offensive play, mulitple rally...that's why i sold all my heavy head rackets to switch to balance/light head rackets.
smashing used to be a joy for me... but now counter attack is more satisfying and enjoyable..hahaha
