Comment : Nice power , but lack that sharpness required in MD - an ideal singles racket. An excellent all round racket nevertheless
Comment : An excellent attacking racket not so much in defensive-wise , strong wrist required to bring the most out of this beast.
Comment : A brilliant racket ! One of my favorite of all time and currently my-go-to-racket , even the legendary NS9900 need to take a bow and move aside.

Lethal 50 is good, powerful to do smashing and also quite balance, giving 8/10 on the rackets.
Lethal 70 i have no chance to try yet because no frens own it, but heard from the review is lighter than L60 but do generate the same decent power for L70, you can go to the shop and try it out, should be there already.

Old age, badminton racket is built by light metal material, so when you carried those rackets, it is heavy and need more wrist power to hit the shuttle. Then come to about 8 years old from you, people created something called "Carbon" to replace the metal, so this carbon is great as well because it does able to generate the same power as what the previous version had.
So nowadays, carbon racket is everywhere and become popular because it is light, can be stiff, control well on the racket, most of the manufacture use it. Woven, is another kind of quality actually. It is lighter than carbon in theoretically and it is more latest material use for racket manufacture. I don't think current woven can generate the same power for what carbon can do, so nowadays those woven racket they are combined carbon and woven to make the racket lighter to increase the efficiency.
They are some other manufacture use woven effectively like RSL, APACS only have one, Yonex won't do that because Yonex racket usually is more heavy compare to other brand, this is just the little knowledge i knew about it, if it is wrong, hopefully someone can correct me to avoid wrong knowledge to others.

weeyeh , so is not Zelm 10000 nothing like the zelm powerplay 9900 , because that is not a quick racket by no mean..I really have to check out the powerplay 10000, been hearing alot of good reviews .
Loneboy62 , thats a nice history about how Woven got into badminton racket, it is a reinforce material to strengthen the carbon shaft of the racket making it stiffer and stronger. someone said on the forum woven can also make the shaft brittle as it does not tolerate much stress thus durability is an issue...I ahve not tried any woven rackets ever so I dont know much about them !

do you know that actually woven is also carbon ?
woven is not material but it is a method.
racket is made by carbon layer which is made by carbon fiber (also known as Carbon graphite), it is an extremely thin layer of carbon, so one of the method to make a carbon layer so-called woven, it is as like pre-weaving of string, but it uses carbon fiber.
(being an engineer in this field made me know what is woven)

stern 200 have woven in the shaft only, stern 300 have woven in shaft and frame.
But what i saw is the frame and shaft on my stern200 are similar, look like have woven inside.

And today finally i knew that woven is still carbon fiber, thought it is kind of different quality stuffs because it is really lighter.
