The xt700 is a good racket, its mid to head heavy balance and medium stiff shaft. It looks good with the orange on the frame. It's got good power and quite easy to use. I have also had the xt900 which was stiffer and more head heavy, the xt900 is an older racket so it may be cheaper. I haven't tried the xt2000.

You're correct, it does exist. My mistake. I don't think this racket is available in the UK however. It looks pretty cool. Forgive my ignorance but what does KJ stand from?

I played with my XT 700 last night for the for the first time. I only played with it for about an hour but my initial thoughts towards it were very positive. However, I feel I will be better-off placed to give a more in-depth review once I get it back from the stringers tomorrow night. I don't feel stock strings do a brand new racket any justice, so I get them replaced whenever I purchase a new racket; in this case BG65ti.

Wow, thats a nice XT 700 u got there! 24lbs is the way to go.
I had been searching for this Ashaway Viper XT 1200 model in the local market ever since its release.
Tried calling and visiting local outlets but to no avail.

Somehow i think XT1200 is only meant for Europe/USA market.Just like how XT1500 and XT2000 is available locally but arent available over in Europe/USA

By the way below is the Viper XT 1200 description extracted online.
Ashaway Viper XT 1200 Hex Badminton Racket is a powerful attacking racket with good feel for defence. The head cuts the air for rapid swing speed.
Viper Weave Technology - this unique construction integrates a Meta Composite into a Ultra HM Graphite core to provide an X-treme tension frame with low torque and virtually no lateral movement even on miss hits.
HEX frame technology which provides strength in an ultra-slim construction. The hexagonal shape increases aerodynamics and together this generates ultimate speed
Carbon Nano Tube construction uses a carbon formation that provides immense strength with less weight than standard carbon formations.
The high tension head allows a max tension of 28lbs
The racket is prestrung in Ashaway Zymax
+ Viper Weave
+ Hex Frame
+ Carbon Nano Tubes
+ High Tension Frame
+ High Power
+ Max Tension 28lbs
+ Strung in Ashaway Zymax 70
Amazing racket and one of the best Ashaway rackets that i had seen so far. Definitely worth the buy. Hoping it will be available in Singapore soon....
