    If you try Gosen NanoCubic, pre-stretch the string and tension to 28/30, the boom boom will come back....

    viper i don't believe i can take those tension. for me it will feel like hitting with a plank those tension are for the elite, i am just a lowly 24/26, on my good days i go up to 26/28 but very rarely.

    Agree, the lack of material could possibly mean a weaker frame in those areas... similar reason why I gave up on the older Mizuno models, as well as for not trying out a couple of the Wilson Ncode models... (N2,N4,N6 I believe), because of this concave design.

    But Gosen has always made some pretty awesome racquets, it might be worth a swing...

    Enlighten me once again though... they were available in 3 1/2" diameter grip right? I forget which system Gosen used to measure... I think it was opposite of YY though.

    BTW... any updates from your play testing?
    You know me, always up for trying something new

    Ah don't let the price fool you though, my experience with Gosen racquets is much better than the ones I had with their string (durability issues )

    I'm pretty sure they'll be really sweet racquets.

    I forgot to ask earlier but... are those USG (u-shaped grommets) on the sides?

    I'll pm you about the cool orange Ashaways lol

    Also, assuming my eyes are not deceiving me at this hour... but
    The 7900's frame does not look as widebody as previous Gosen models... and that the racquet design looks similar to some of the recent yy designs, how to put this... kind of like a box + aerodynamic shape combined?

    Too bad they didn't use the new grommet system, its so much easier stringing ns9kx rather than having to work into shared grommet spaces lol... but then again upon closer look of your pics... are those shared grommet holes slightly larger than normal?

    Thanks for your time & input

    Cheers.

    Gosen is the other competition for yonex which is also Made in Japan. I am also interested to buy this racket but I can't find any specific model for double player. I prefer headlight/medium or stiff racket/light weight. Can anybody help me?

    According to the Gosen America website, the Aermet 6900 is also available in yellow/black version.

    Yes you're right Sealman.

    The burgundy yellow is the Boonsak Edition.

    I don't know for sure but...
    I have not seen the Japanese vendors updating their sites with these 2 models yet...

    I also hope they have 3 1/2" diamter grip size for these lovely pieces
    If not I'll stick to carbonex

    Viper2005 did you add the USG(U shaped grommets) near the T- joint? Cause the gosen website doest have it and the 6900 doesnt also. Or thats what yur referring to "The new 7900 has dual-grommets on the sides with some vibration absorbers, Power Cavities on the inside of the frame (big holes). "
