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.

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 ...

I need rackets that are stiff as planks. I would then control that stiff feel through string and tension.

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)

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

How much do the ti 10's normally sell for in the UK? I have been offered a few pretty cheaply

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.

Thanks for the info, will see them tonight and have a swing with them and see how they feel. I am getting them for a bargain by the sounds of it!
