    please ignore my previous suggestion. I did not mean it to be offensive on the way you've displayed your chart. I thought it might help since business' use similar value system in their decision making process. Sorry again if i offended you Master Dink.

    the reason i typed that out was thinking, we all value different attributes on the racket we use. Since each player can asign what they value more (ex. power over durability against your review grading) the vaule system would help the buyer decide on which racket would benefit them overall while still having prioritizing their key attributes. Sorry i did not recognize how the level of each player would change the prioritizing originally believe the assignment of values (ex. power>durability>defense>stability) would solve that.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. I dont think theres many people on this forum who have tested as many rackets as you , Master Dink, nor many people who have the dedication to do such chart. Thank you.

If another racket for stiffness of 7 (moderate) and balance of 9 (head heavy) you still get 16. Now a moderately stiff head heavy racket is enormously different to a stiff racket with moderate balance. Like Dan said, you cant look at the values as a whole. Take the aspects of each racket with a grain of salt and you can tell how they will play relative to each other. For what it matters, I think the review is fine how it is now.
    sorry i've apologize above, but the original idea was (using your 2 parameters Stiffness and Balance.

    since i would like head heavy racket, and medium flex shaft
    i'll value head heavy's importance as 10 and stiffness 8

    ex on the chart
    ABC racket: head heaviness=9 / stiffness=7
    XYZ racket: head heaviness=7 / stiffness=9

    ABC racket: 90(9*10) + 56(7*8) = 146
    XYZ racket: 70(7*10) + 72(9*8) = 142
    therefore ABC should satisfy the player a bit more than XYZ.

    but yes i do recognize it flawed.

    Oh no worries, no offense taken.

    I think I do have a better way of making the review and it's partly thanks to you.

    Personally, I think either with numbers or adjectives, I would withdraw similar conclusions from the review, as each racket is reviewed relative to it's peers...

    I for one am really grateful Dink is doing this of his own free will!

    I'm doing a spreadsheet at the moment that will allow people just to compare spec's at a glance.

    Reviews are a bit too subjective for my liking to be used on their own. I think when you have one racket and are looking to try others, your first step should be to compare specs, then go looking for opinions.

    Already it's helped me find something thats similar to my Head M8k Tour but just different enough to add a small amount to the mix without going completely leftfield.

    There's one problem with specs, they can be very off if you go with manufacturer information. Also, there are tolerances, 3U can be 85g-89g.

    Are you going with each specific racket you encounter? You going to weigh it and find the BP?

    It's impossible for me to weigh every racket, but every one I buy I'll weigh just for my own records. At this stage I'm just going on manufacturers specs, and averaging the tolerance if there is one.

    There really isn't an 'Alternative B'! It's not like I'm a pro that get's showered with rackets, I'm just a poor working class boy with no talent

    You should take manufacturer specs with a grain of salt, I have found way too many discrepancies.

    Hi Master Dink, thanks for updating the review. By the way I noticed number 127, do you mean Yonex Ti10 Purple SP? I think you accidentally put the word nanospeed there. Thanks again Master Dink

    This review's a beau. Thanks a bunch, mate. However can you review the Kason L6? You did the Kason L5, which I have but I'm planning on trying out the new one. I honestly just want someone's opinion on it, not many people use Kason racquets out there these days.

    hey dink, would it be a hassle to add to the table, their respective frame shapes? for examples iso wide body (ns 7000), oval wide (carlton airblades), iso thin (ns 8000), etc.
