    Post Slim frame (head) rackets (slim10 like)

    Played with my brothers slim10 the other day and i loved it. Awesome racket. Was wondering if there are any newish rackets with the same specs and feels, especially the slim frame and shaft.
    Does you guys know any? Thanks in advance

    In the yonex range there are a few that come to mind. ArcZS has both a thin shaft and slim head. NSZS is another although the head isn't quite as slim but it is compact.

    Not the best investment to replace a 90$ racket which you love with a maybe similar 200$ racket.

    I try to say that IMO you should only look for an alternative if first choice is discontinued, not available or too expensive. Eric sells the Slim 10 at 90$. Your suggestions are good but it wouldn't be a smart investment to buy one racket for 200$ when you are satisfied with one which cost less than the half amount of money.

    Btw slim 10 is a 4U racket. So a 3U or maybe 2U racket with same characteristics would play total differently.

    Thank you demolidor! I only know of one Slim 10... the one that eludes my collection!!

    If there is a genuine new yonex slim 10 going for $90, some one needs to tell me where to send my cheque!

    To be honest I didn't have any clue which racket OP meant. So I googled. The Ashaway Super Slim 10 was the first results. So I thought OP is talking about this racket and not a 20 years old racket. I apologies for my stupidness, old men.

    Of course it is hard to get. They broke really easily! I broke two and thought, "hang about, this could get expensive...".
