    Why not? Professionals train so many times a week. Along with all the physical conditioning they do. There isn't a reason why they wouldn't use 3U for a head heavy racket.

    Not surprising. Just wanted to make the point of 3U - all my rackets are 3U too, and I'm not a professional, nor do I train even once a week hehe. I had both 3U and 4U Z-Force rackets once, and I definitely preferred the 3U.

    Perhaps, factory grip could have been removed, overgrip applied plus towel grip on top...?

    And heavier rackets cope better with their tensions - I wouldn't try Shin's 32/33 on my 4U's.

    Well, not while I've only got three.

    Aye. I've been considering giving the 4U TK9000 a try but I don't know how high I want to take it with VS850. I'm already playing with 30x31

    I've used a whole spectrum of victor rackets and am comfortable with most of them. Right now depending on my mood I rotate between a BS12 KRP, JS 8ST KRP, BS12N and MX80.

    I have gone with the 3U TK9000 before but gave it up due to needing cash. It was playable but not the most excellent on level doubles for me. It was an excellent candidate for mixed doubles though. But I rather liked the increased average power but want more maneuverability for level doubles.

    Havent tried any of ur goto. Closest is MX-JJS in 4u. String preference is ZM65, thinner than VS850.

    So, no definite resolution here. Just a suggestion...may want to string 4u TK-9ooo at the same tension or one lbs lower n c where it goes frm there...

    I used to use the JJS as a go to in rotation 3U naturally I'll admit the TK9000 has a real solid frame but I've never personally owned a 4U for any racket before so I have no idea how survivable they are.

    ( ^.*) ...am on the other end of the u spectrum. All current rackets r in 4u. Similarly, am thinking how 3u TK-9ooo will perform for me...

    Survivable? Very, indeed...

    Sadly in Europe we do not have the choice of weight compared to other countries/continents.

    There are some rackets I'd dearly like to try in 3U such as Jetspeed 8's, TK 7000S to get a better feel of the difference. However, tolerances being what they are there is always the danger the difference between 3U and 4U could be a knife-edge of 1lb or 8-9 lbs. I know i can add Powerizer and test but sometimes there is just something extra in the entire racket rather than one particular area like the head.

    Agreed Paul, we r more fortunate in that sense but there's always international shipping, albeit with a certain degree of customs risk...

    heard professional players' are definitely stiffer/heavier than off-the-shelf commercial ones, so even if u buy a 3U from a shop, its gonna be diff from what they are using anyway
