    I was wondering if anyone can give quick summary of differences b/wAERMET 6900 vs 7900.

    I just saw the price is about US$159. In general, both have the same price or one is more expensive than another?

    I really appreciate it.


    Thanks

    In Korea, there is no 7900, but we have this 7800, which is black and gold. I can't find anything like it on the Chinese, Japanese, or American websites. Two guys in my gym have the 6900. I'd like to try it but I can't afford it. Oddly, the shop near our gym where I bought my 5 Gosens has stopped getting any new Gosen stuff.

    No kidding. The Japanese catalogue often looks like it is for a completely different company. It doesn't even have any x700 models. Gosen America has the 5700 but no other x700s. China and the English catalogue from Gosen Japan have 1700, 2700, 4900, and 5700 but the latter also has a 3700 whereas the former does not. In Korea, we have 1700,2700,3700,5700 and also a pink 4700 but no 4900. It is all very confusing. The Denmark site has nothing newer than 3 years old (5300,3600,2400).
    I also hope they have 3 1/2" diamter grip size for these lovely pieces
    Three and a half inches in diameter! Even Ri Myung Hun wouldn't need a grip that large.

    I remember seeing a price of C$280 for a 5300 years ago on the website for one Toronto shop, probably Brown's, but there are no Gosens there now. At the same time San Diego Badminton Supply used to sell the 5300 at an amazing US$105 in the U.S. SDBS has next to nothing now. From what twinshk says, the US prices are still likely the far better deal. It would almost be cheaper to drive to Philadelphia and buy a 6900 for US$159 than to wait for an Ontario vendor to sell it to you for C$280 + 15%! Our prices here are very high for the 6900, too. It is 210,000won.

    Yes, I added the dual grommets at the T-Joint. Got bags of them.

    I've played with both 6900 & 7900 and both feel about the same in power, control, balance. Good all around racket for offense and defense. The attractive paint job makes a good conversation with other players. Not many players in my gym have seen or used a Gosen racket b4. Everyone wanted to give it a swing to try it.

    I would say that it is a serious racket for any serious games...$$$$$.
    I'll stick with my Kason U3 racket for fun games.

    Viper,

    Could you state any differences between the 6900 and 7900? mainly on the physical aspects (are they equally stiff? weight balances?)

    thx in adv ^^

    according the the specs on paper, the 7900 is stiffer.
    when I played with it, I can confirm that 7900 is stiffer.
    balance is the same, cuz I added a grip on both.

    Rose Sports at Mongkok.

    rude service but good price. btw they dont want to string the racket to the tension you want, tried to get mine strung to 26 pounds but the boss insisted on stringing it at 24 pounds. the racket can take up to 28pounds.

    Thanks Freeman.

    I broke my second Gosen Roots Gavun 2500Ti yesterday. I broke my first one a year ago when I clashed with a friend - not a very hard clash. My second one broke while excuting a backhand last night !!!!! Does anyone have any such experience with the Gosens.

    I bought the 6900 a couple of weeks ago and its a very finicky racket. It takes a lot more time to get used to on the court than any of my yonex rackets.

    For power, it feels like its either really weak or very strong, with nothing in between... Unlike yonex rackets, it doesn't really make a huge popping? sound even when doing deep clears. It doesn't feel like an isometric racket.

    Control for me is terrible. It might be the "2 point kick system?" throwing me off at low swing speeds, but it feels like a different racket when doing drops or any light hits. That definately takes time getting used to.

    Overall its a pretty nice racket for a decent price, but if you've only used yonex rackets then it will take time to get used to the quirks. (or at least anything I've used.)

    I have the 6900 for about 3 months now. Having previously used AT-700,500 and MP-88 I would have to say that 6900 is the most powerful of all for me. Maybe it takes some time to get used to it, it's a very stable racquet. Control wise, maybe you should be looking at different string with different tension that is suitable for you. cheers
