    Anyway, 3U T200 is great in the power and I think the weight do contribute some power and helps you to press the shuttlecock down when you smash.

    Just my 2 cents view, will 4U too light and you need stronger wrist and arm power to press the shuttlecock?

    In fact, just a few gramms different.
    Does it really that much diff?
    How much are you getting it?
    I own a T200 (3U-G2), the power is no doubt. IMO, I find the defence and drive is abit set back for the 3U and it can be due to it weight. A few grams is OK for me with 2hrs session but I play 3hrs every session and often rally games. Thus, my arm and wrist tend to give in after 2 good hrs games. I am getting it for S$80 without bag.

    just got the orders in from racquet_sportz...altogether 3 weeks but i won't complain too much since my ankle is swollen anyway...

    got the nano 9900 power and nano 9000 for my gf to use during recreational game. Paintjob is beautiful. Very light and specs is spot on (285bp for 9900, and 292+/- for 9000 with string, original grip). However, the 9900 is very flexible, and the 9000 is only slightly stiffer than that. But oh well, i think she will liked them better and hopefully stay away from my 900T.

    As for the T200 that i got, it is way off specs (sad). Weight wise (didn't measure), it is definitely 3U, and felt heavier than the T2 and the 900T and both of the Apacs i mentioned above. BP stood at 299+/- w/ strings and w/ original grip, so i have to be quite creative with the overgrip to move that number down to a more double-respectable 295-ish. Swing is nice, fast and crisp but i can feel that the defense in doubles is going to suffer a little. As a singles racket, i think it could be appropriate, but unfortunately i didn't buy it for that!

    Oh well, will write more when my ankle decides to heal and i can hit the court again.

    For now, after just holding and swinging these rackets in the living room to the tunes of Frank Sinatra, i could safely say, basing solely on a pretentious and superficial sense of know-it-all, i still am in love with the T2.

    i had the assumption that the specs of the T200 is within 88g and 285 +- 5 BP...

    as printed on the shaft itself..

    is this what you meant?

    i measure it roughly by first balancing the shaft on the tip of my finger, and take note of the corresponding position on the shaft indicated by the tip of the finger. Then i use a ruler to measure the length from the tip of the handle to this point, and that would be the BP.

    where u strung ur racket? sometimes stringer dun service their machine so 22 might not feel 22..i guess those respectable ones hv more accuracy
    but string should not lose so much tension so fast..unless u play 5-6 hours non stop then no comment

    slightly is ok imo..we also prone to gross error in measuring..hahaha unless we have a special equipment with high measuring accuracy to see the balance point..if it obviously unbalance then thats a dif story..

    err..im not saying im so high level but i felt the difference between my n900p and my fren's unit. mine is obviously lighter altho both are 4u..he has a slightly little bit thicker grip than mine but i don't think such minor minor difference will affect the feeling so obviously..so it's either mine is off-spec or his unit is.

    i've roughly measured my bp..270 with string and not very thick grip
