    I say go for the 4u. My friends have the 4u and I have the 3u. 3u is very hard to do drives and defense. 4u is not much weaker but more aerodynamic.

    I did a few of Shin Baek Cheol's, and the 3U didn't seem that much more difficult to move around than the 4U. Should have taken one for a knock-up - he'd never have known!

    It's weird, because the 3U TK8000 is so slow... could be the 9000's shorter shaft keeping things tighter.

    Do you think it might be because of the longer handle that you end up holding higher on the handle without noticing?

    how significant is the difference in length of the shaft between the TK8000 and TK9000? I'm using the 4U TK8000 currently, and thinking of trying a TK9000.

    About 5mm iirc. Head size is the same. But the nano fortify alone makes the shaft flex differently along with the shorter shaft and longer handle.

    so I guess its the TK9000 that has the shorter shaft and slightly longer handle?

    Been playing with tk9000 3u for a number of months now. Absolutely love it and i play it for both doubles and singles. With so much hype on the 4u, i decided to buy one give it a try. Both rackets are strung with the same string and tension 66ultimax at 28lbs. Honestly, the 4u is still a pretty decent racket that packs a punch but i still prefer the 3u as it juz gives tt little more power and tou it may be slightly (very slight if i may say) slower than the 4,u it didn't really affect my game that much in terms of defence and fast net exchanges. So i guess it really depends on your playing style. I like to play an aggressive game and wld lean more towards the 3u and it's really not as unwieldly as many tot compared to the 4u. The 3u is still very much my go to and i now contemplating of selling off the 4u

    Which would you say has better smashes and defense, TK9000 4u or VT80 4u? Is it crisp and have good booms?

    4U TK9000 destroys a 4U VT80 in both.

    For me it's as powerful as any 3U I've used and as fast as my 3U JJS.

    I haven't tried a 4U TK8000, but the TK9000 is definitely worth a go.

    Can someone give me a comparison between a 3u mx80 and the 4u TK9k? In terms of feel, control and power?

    Really debating this or the zf2...is the feel more like nanospeeds(less hold) or like the voltrics? Feedback as good as zf2? Is the shaft/handle bigger or similar to zf2? Does it swing faster than zf2?
