Thread: SOTX woven 7 or d600?
06-01-2007, 09:54 PM #18
I had a D-600 that was 87.5 grams and it was pretty weak relative to the W7. Originally, I had a D-600 that was 92 grams and it was more powerful than my 91 gram Woven 11. But the mother of all rackets were my two 93 gram Woven 11. Both snapped at the handle.
But, I agree with Pedro, assuming "normal" distribution racket weights, each optimized, powerwise:
W7 < D-600 < W11
However, the power difference will be minor. And if I were to choose an overall racket to use, I would go the opposite:
W7 > D-600 > W11
This is because the W7 has better defense than the other two and is a better all-around racket. The D-600 and W11 are more suited for singles play.

I play doubles a lot. I'm usually the one at the back with the big smash . So i guess the W7 would suit me best?

dink didnt you say earlier that you think the d-600 is best??? now its the w7(i) ???

Overall, now for doubles, I prefer the Woven 7i. If I played singles, I'd opt for the D-600 or Woven 11.

Alrite, ya i remembered. When i bought my Woven 8, there were slight variations with balance points and such on the little sticker that is different for each sotx racket.

but yeah, w7, w7i, w11, d600...they're all attack-based rackets, though all a bit different
(I'd classify the w11 and d600 as singlesrackets, w7i for doubles/allround and the w7 as allround...relative to each other)
but that's just me

Question to Dinkalot: Are there some days you prefer using the W7 or D600, or you use W7 for doubles' and D600 for singles' game?
I myself find some days preferring to use W7, and some days preferring to use D600 even for doubles play.

Maybe I'm a little bit off-topic but can anyone here help where to buy Woven 7i in the Philippines? I've already purchased a 7 and like the racket very much. Unfortunately, the store from where I bought the 7 doesn't have the 7i.
Thank you very much in advance.
