a friend of mine called up AJ in puchong and asked about the X5 series and he was quoted ~RM490 per racket. they said to come in store to be offered a deal. why can't AJ quote a more reasonable price on the phone?

X5 White definitely got the looks! Meanwhile, I think my older X2 Gold would still beat X5 Gold. I have no way of knowing until somebody post the reviews here. No plans for the X5 because when X3 Gold was release, I thought it's gonna replace my X2 Gold...well X2 is way better than X3 Gold, therefore, I'm gonna adapt a wait and see approach.

How's the X5 Silver compare to the BS11?

I was at my friend's shop today viewing and getting a feel at all 3 X5 models. I must say all 3 models have beautiful paint with nice colour shade selected. Its all down to personal preferences when it comes to colour.
Anyway I was bemused with the spec of the racket when I begun to weight its B.P and flex. According to RSL specification table, the X5Gold is supposed to be stiffer and headlight compared to the Silver but it was exactly the other way round. The Silver turned out to be stiffer and head heavier.
Also, the White supposed to be the most flexible out of the 3 but its stiffness does not differ much from the Silver. Its B.P rating is correct nevertheless.
Of all 3 models, I personally found the Gold to have a well balanced spec and it feels right. The other 2 models is either being too headlight or too stiff to my liking.
2 cents worth.

My humble review of X5 Gold.
Just had my 2nd session with the RSL X5 Gold. It was strung with YY BG80 28lbs (EMS stringing) and Karakal P.U grip.
Its B.P rating was 290mm+-5 (dry weight) and flex rated medium stiff according to RSL. Initial impression on the 1st session was its a bit too stiff and numb and doesn't provide a healthy feel of repulsion.
But everything changes today as the racket provides a good feel and solid hitting power especially on full swinging shots and smashes. I believed this was because Gosen 8900 red was my main racket for the pass 2 months and its rated mid-stiff and even balance. I got too attached to it and a sudden change of racket with a different specification contributed to the not so pleasant first impression.
I must highlight this is my first RSL racket and overall its on par with other top of the line rackets from Yonex, Victor and Gosen to name a few. Its forte are on fast drives and attacking nature kind of shots that require some strength from the player. Once the power is generated, it will award you with a very solid and powerful hitting experience.
Accuracy of shots is top notch as this racket forced the player in a way to have certain amount of power when hitting and this resulted in very sharp and accurate drop shots, lobs and punches. But don't get me wrong, this racket doesn't put strains to your arm after some times of playing but its just a unique characteristic of it.
Defend is OK as its not too head heavy. But I had a few 3/4 court lifts while defending which I squarely blame on the yet to break-in shaft. After a few more session I think this racket will be more livelier.
I would'n comment on net shots and delicate net play as to me, this department are all down to the skill and technique of the individual and also the kind of string used to a certain degree.
Looking at its performance, design, paint quality and pricing, for below RM300 to me its a real bargain. The technologies implied on this single racket are much more compared to its more popular counterparts which sells at a much higher price. I was especially quite impressed with its patented diamond shaped inner frame technology which provide some kind of aerodynamics. It gives some sort of leverage in swinging speed at certain difficult shots somehow or rather.
Overall this is a good racket. I am not sure how many star rating I should give to the Gold but it really put a smile on my face.
