    Lol... do you realize how many of Victor rackets are listed 4/5 stiffness and 3/5 head heavy or vice versa, but never feel or play the same.

    Own both TK-9ooo n TK-6ooo in 4u.

    Nope, they r nvr the same...LOL

    Visor is spot on! Even within a particular model range, shaft stiffness n head heavy ratings may not b the same across the whole range.

    That's just so Victor...

    Agreed that TK-9ooo has shorter shaft than TK-6ooo in that the former has a longer handle. This difference may contribute to affect TK-9ooo stiffness.

    But the real gist is that Victor uses Nano Fortify in TK-9ooo which stiffen the shaft by a notch or more than that of TK6ooo.
    no wonder the extra stiffness in 9k compared to 6k

    anyways i am using both 4u and enjoying them =D for doubles

    That's actually no surprise to me. Saw pictures from Korea's annual summer games between the professional clubs. His racket of choice is the ZF I. Of course in all fairness yonex does sponsor the team he belongs to xD

    wow, just checked prices from a trusted asian outlet. It's literally half-price compared to UK.

    Even if you get clobbered with VAT, duty and handling fees and something goes wrong and you pay for return postage you're still quids in compared to buying in UK/EU.

    normally if you add on VAT and duty then the price becomes comparable, though. In this case the prices aren't even in the same ball park.

    And there's no real reason why this should be, that I can see.

    The challenging bit is making sure the item is genuine and then getting it through customs. Good luck on that.

    @paulstewart64

    I was only getting prices. Even so, I sense you're not asking because you want to use them...

    It's not in my interest to get anyone in trouble so mum's the word! :X

    Definitely 3U, and possibly G6 - couldn't see the cone under his towelling, but his handles were very thin.
