    I have a question about the d600 and the d900 from sotx. From your review, defense is good+ for the d900 and good- for the d600. For the others things, the d600 is better or the rackets are equal. The d600 is really better than the d900 for you ?

    It might be useful also to know which ones are traditional/oval head.

    I suppose anyone else knowledgeable enough could recreate the info from Dink's spreadsheet on their own spreadsheet program, add/condense some other useful info to supplement it, and repost the supplemented version.

    By the way: can anyone add impressions of Carlton, Wilson, Pro-Kennex, and Prospeed to this chart?

    It's unnecessary as only the Yonex Cabs and SOTX ST-8080 are true ovals. There many a couple more but not significant.

    I've since tested a few more rackets from Chao Pai and Wilson...

    Thanks for the info, DinkaLot.

    Do you mean that the Carlton, Yang Yang, and ProKennex "traditional/oval" racquets that I see in the mix at Badminton Alley and Badminton Wharehouse are not true ovals? Nor the Prospeed Trueno Z7 at the Prospeed site?

    If they are not true ovals, what makes the difference? And what are these other racquets then?

    Maybe to be more specific: Carlton Fireblade, Yang Yang Jsmash 3504 and 9004, and the ProKennex 700 and 747, and the Prospeed Z7. The dealers or manufacturers call these classic/oval heads on the websites.

    I have never tried those rackets (at least not in detail to put them up in the review). I'm only referrring to the rackets I've tested.

    OK. I see.

    Of the racquets you have tried, only the SOTX and Carbonex would be considered ovals, and people know that.

    I had thought you meant that there were "true ovals" and racquets that were called oval, but somehow different, or "not really."

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your review DinkAlot!

    BTW, have you ever tried any of the Victor Artery Tec Ti-99, Super Nanos, or Super Wave 31/Super Wave 32? If so, how do they compare with the PW11 and PW 12?

    Thumbs up

    Thx 4 your review dink, and waiting you 2 test Wilson K-Tour/ K-Blaze also Arcsaber 10. I'm sure you'll test Arcsaber 10 and i think your view is objective enough and useful 2 me to find second and third racket.

    Hi to all. this is my first post. i live in the philippines and i saw a brand of racket which is relatively cheap. the owner of the store said that one of its models is very much like armortec 700. The brand name is "myton". don't know if you've heard it. maybe it's made in china or anywhere in asia. The price is $95.

    I've been thinking of buying a new racket. I would like to have a stiff, head heavy, with a very light shaft, and up to 28lbs tension. Which guys do you think is the best buy?

    By the way, if i can ask here in this thread... what brand has the lightest stiff, head heavy racket? Thanks.

    Furbysaur, if your budget is less than 4k, I suggest you look at the RSL Millenium series. The 3200 is widely available and is the best value for money you can get for a racket.

    Default kason carvel

    Ok so I'm getting the itch to buy another racket, I guess you can never have enough (nine so far!)

    I got a kason carvel recently going by dinks racket review and I LOVE IT.

    I developed a really powerful smash with this racket, which I never really had before. It really let me have fun and "play" untill I got the technique right due to the light weight. With my yonex mp99 it was more work than fun.

    I want something comparable to the carvel, length and flex wise, but with more power.

    It will very likely have to be heavier because you can only generate so much power with a light racket but now I've developed a decent enough technique to take advantage of it.

    I've also decided to try out the sotx woven series.

    So the question is which woven model would be the closest to the carvel. Probably comparing apples and oranges here but I think the most important factors would be shaft length and flex.

    Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    And now off to the review section!

    On a side note have you still got any of those new rackets you recently acquired dink?


    John

    Haven't tried them yet because they are not readily available in the U.S.

    I'm working on getting some so stay tuned.

    Bolts, you developed a really powerful smash with the Kason Carvel?!

    If that's the case, then you can smash really powerfully with just about any racket. For me the Carvel was a 77g wet noodle. I couldn't get any power out of it. But it's great got great mobility, decent build quality and great bang for the buck.
