    Aww man...
    Dan... you suck... Just when I thought I have my new racket decided, you throw in some new devils... =P

    j/k... props for the great work...

    Question: There's no doubt as to why anything rated Excellent- and higher are recommended but what gives the specific Good+ rackets your stamp of approval?

    I'm particularly interested in your opinion regarding SOTX Woven 8 vs Gosen 3700 vs Kason TSF200 (and the Kason TSF 100 if you have any experience with it)

    Edit: the NS-9000X should be in bold, highly recommended.

    The overall rating is relative to its peers. A "Good+" rating can be recommended a highly recommended racket. For instance, the NS-9000X. It's a great attacking racket provided you can wield it. However, defense is not that great and for me, it's not that consistent as I overswing it. But it's still a great attacking racket so I recommend it for that.

    The three out of four rackets you mentioned are completely different rackets. You need to play them to see what you prefer. The Woven 8 is the most forgiving and lightest, all-around racket. The 100 and 200 are relative hammers and the 3700 is...it's a different feel.

    I wouldn't call it stylish...but it's certainly dashing
    Thanks Jerry...the 7i got beat with the ugly stick. It's neither stylish nor dashing. It's a racket no one would want to steal.

    just wait untill you see some of the other new wovens

    the woven4L is purple, with hints of black, yellow and the carbon-woven-stuff

    BTW, now I am posting anyway....is it me, or aren't a lot of rackets getting a "headlight" rating?

    always lighter, never headlighter?

    might be because I never tried 5U rackets (except the headheavy superlights from sotx) but the w5a and w6 definatly feel headlight, same for the ns7k
    (though with length and weight, it's hard to isolate one property)

    Both...that's the trend these days, at least for Yonex. Yonex leads and then others follow.

    I tried a few Hi-Quas, I don't remember exactly the model numbers, hence the delay. I will need to get them back...I only have "approximate" remarks for them. In general, overall, they are average to good; good to good+ for the money. Of the rackets I tried, none would get an excellent rating.

    U should have tried NS9000-S 2U NS9000-X 2U and 3U AT900s. They will be better than excellent for you. Especailly 2U NS9000-X, it is a very powerful racket with good defence and excellent control IF U HAVE ENOUGH POWER.
