    Default New Ti-10 Questions

    Recently i had just purchased the new ti-10 and the colour is very nice, but when i wa splaying with it, the racket felt somewhat brittle. The strings were bg-65 ti's. Whenever i do drop shots it feels okay( a little vibration) but when i do smashes, there is no power and quite of bit of vibration. IMO i think it may be the strings affecting my play. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

    then u heard it from an incompetent player.
    current pros using new Ti-10 are:

    fu haifeng
    KKK
    TBH
    LWW
    XuChen
    LeeHyoJung

    If u dunno, these are some the current best of the best double players.
    If u find new ti-10 lacking power, examine yourself first.

    As far as I know, there are only incompetent players, not incompetent racquets.

    Default New Version Ti-10 - My Experience

    I get an overspec Ti-10 2U G5 (96 grams dry mass) and it plays fine with BG-65 Ti at 31 lbs X 34.1 lbs.

    1. Make sure your racket is from reliable source (i.e. not a fake)

    2. It takes time to adjust to a new racket / string combo.

    3. Consider re-string the racket with whatever string/tension combo you used to feel comfortable with.

    4. The racket might not suitable for your skill/style. Re-sell it, and save the $$$ for a suitable racket.

    Though I have not played with the new Ti10 (yet), based on feedback from clients, it has been received very well.

    Really depends on what type of racquet you're coming from, i.e. if you came from a light ultra flex racquet with low tension (18 to 20 lbs), this would be a huge adjustment. I susupect the tension may be alot higher than you had before, can make the racquet feel dead if you are not able to handle a high tension, or it may just be you need to be patient till you adjust to the feel of the new racquet.

    This is why it's important to understand your game and needs first, since there is no such thing as a best racquet, rather a better question is what is the best racquet/spec for you ?

    Best Regards,

    heheehhe..... user problems. this is normal, we always try to blame the racquets. company spends hundred thousand for R&D, engineers spend hundreds of hour to design. we need to spend 500 hrs of training to be more skillful player.

    Its not good compared to the old one. Besides, wouldn't you say something like the NS9k would be much more competent?

    I say a racquet is a racquet.

    Ti10 old, new, futuristic... whatever it all plays fine for me.
    Same with Nanospeed 9000.

    Its up to you, to hone your skills and make the most of your game play.
    Your racquet is a mere decoration & tool.
    Have fun with it.

    If you are having trouble using it... then I'd recommend as others have, to look into your own gameplay & improve.

    The list of top doubles players using this racquet is growing.
    There is a reason that a lot of us like the racquet.

    It might not be right for you, so stick to what works for you.

    Off topic: I did the bg66 experiment... it did not last past my 15min warm ups LOL... I'm sticking to bg65's. I'm too newbie to use bg66 @ 30lbs

    edit: as to the comment about ns9k... for your reference, I had 2 of mine collapse in the past 2 months... where as the ti10 did not.

    I think we can not label which racket is "better", it's all personal preference. Find a racket that suits your playing style, it will take some time to get adjusted to the new racket, don't buy a racket because a pro is using it or it's made with the most high-tech material, if you're not able to fully utilize it's potential, it'll be just the same as a cheaper racket.

    The new Ti10 have a different spec than the old version simply because Yonex now have a different marketing strategy with the different lines ie, Nanospeed, Armortec, Titianium Mesh and Muscle power, if you look carefully, each line have their own characteristic, the old Ti10 just didn't suit it's line no more, so Yonex made some adjustments for the new version to "fit in" with the rest of the line.

    I have both the new and the old Ti-10. To me, the old one is better: more head heavier which I like. The only thing I like more about the new one is the paint job. Looks reall good.
