    Default Yonex Ti-10 (New Verison)

    Today, I finally get to try out my new Ti-10 which my friend got in HK. First impression was, I thought it was similar to the older verison. Once I actually got to do some strokes with it, the new Ti-10 doesn't generate as much power as the Ti-10. Once I get to play with my friend in a singles match, I noticed it was much more of a defensive racquet (a bit more maneuver when smash needed to be defended). In offense, the smashes were not too powerful but drops were more precise.

    In conclusion, new batch of Ti-10 became a defensive racquet, IMO. If anyone tried it and thinks I am wrong, feel free to correct me.

    Good Day All!

    that is just wrong, so very wrong.
    i mean you're probably right, but making the ti-10 a defensive racquet just defeats its purpose in life.
    there are enough defensive racquets out there without changing the soul of a classic.
    personally, i haven't really had a chance to try it out myself, but the evidence so far appears pretty conclusive ...

    Ti-10 is a big name, and takes expensive material to make. So they sneak in a cut down version and hope that you don't notice. But shouldn't complain as the classic Ti-10 is still available in the far east, although at higher prices.

    Once my Ti-10's starts to break and I can't replace them with the classic model, I will cease to be a Yonex user.

    What will you use then? I recommend the SOTX D600.

    I've heard from several people now that the new Ti-10 is more defensive than the old one.

    Why bring back a classic if you're going to change it so much?

    I'd be tempted to buy it again if it was exactly like the old Ti-10s (I even liked the black/silver/red coloring) but the new one seems a waste of time.

    exactly, rather than change it, they should have just called it the ti-9. but i guess it's to take advantage of the ti-10's popularity ...

    It's only a hyperthetical situation. My Ti-10's survived clash after clash. As far as I am concerned they are indestructible, which is why I want only those rackets from Yonex and nothing else. Not long a go, me and the guy I was playing with went to retrieve the same drop shot. Bang, his racket racket got knocked off his hand, flew over the net. I looked at mine expecting the worst. But nothing except a little paint chip. Then a couple of weeks ago, a shot came over to the middle of the court. I went for an almighty forehand smash. Bang, my partner's racket was in the way. The clash was so sharp and loud that our opponents looked stunned. Again, nothing but a paint chip. The graphite underneath didn't even get a scratch. I thought that was just funny.

    If I were to find an alternative for Ti-10, I will want a racket with UHMG all over, and which is also super extra stiff. According to STOX's specs all their rackets have some kind of flex that seem to indicate they are not very stiff. So SOTX is outside of my consideration at the moment. I need rackets that are stiff as planks. I would then control that stiff feel through string and tension.

    you have no idea how wrong you are.....

    1) sotx rates their shaft-stiffness by placing a weight on the T-joint to see how much they bend. so a 8,0-8,5 is the stiffest and an 9,0-9,3 the flexiest....I though Jinryu said the weight was 20kg, but I'm not sure...
    2) my woven 11 (8,0-8,5) just as stiffer than my at500, and maybe just liek the ns8k...(just mentioning to piss you off)

    Can't say I am pi$$ed off because SOTX racket are stiff. Rackets are noramlly rated according to stiffness. SOTX rate theirs according to flex. So psychologically, their rackets just appear to me to have more flex because they keep using the word. On the other hand, I know a bit about AT500. If SOTX does something more stiff, so much the better.

    In any case, it will be a very long time before I will look beyond Ti-10. Hopefully all new buyers of the Ti-10 go for the new model and leaving the old models unsellable so that buyers like me can pick them up at leisure. I currently have 5x3u and 1x2u. It will be a while before I break them all.

    I don't know why you bring NS8k into the discussion. I like NS8k very much, particularly the fake ones. The power of the fake ones almost match my Ti-10's, even in the hands of girls

    Ti-10's are not available from UK. If you don't want them, I can buy from your sellers if the rackets are genuine.

    Have they never been sold over here?
    I am certain they are genuine though. What is a fair price for this racket, never used Yonex before so am a bit unaware!!

    Ti-10 was discontinued worldwide since 2002/3.

    50-90 pounds seem reasonable for the classic Ti-10 if new and genuine. As for the new Ti-10, no idea. I have no room for the new Ti-10. But I can squeeze a couple more of the classic in my bag.
