    doesn't this sound familiar ? Like a certain yellow racket made by another japanese brand ?
    Any idea where to get 1st gen TC700 ? I believe they don't make them anymore

    Both the 1st gen and the 2nd gen are green.

    I believe twobeer said that the 1st gen gives more 'power' but the 2nd gen has better 'feel' or something like that. Only the 2nd gen are available now.

    That "other" yellow you're talking about has a unique frame shape because it's an isometric shape with width reduction along the entire frame.

    The TCs- excluding the 400- on the other hand, is better described as being similar to a regular isometric except for the very top of the frame, which tapers more dramatically like an oval frame.

    Like Twobeer has said, I personally think the TC approach to a reduced head-size makes more sense in terms of touch and playability than the ARC-Z's. Then again, the purpose of the ARC-Z head shape is for drag reduction and not necessarily touch.

    And seeing as that there aren't that many of the three original TC models left, I oughta secure myself another copy before they run out~

    Seriously, the last thing you need is more racquets . If Sir Dink finds it the most demanding racquet (well one of two) ever what do you think it will do for you? The man is a former decathlete already . Better try out those SW35's first ...

    Maybe it's only so demanding at high tensions?
    I know an older fellow with a TC700 ... he's not strong but wily. He revels in his tricky dropshots and net touches... the powersmash is not in his game. In other words, a racket is as versatile as it's user, and it can't make you something you are not. (drat!)

    So I'm just wondering, is the Tetracross 700 the only model made by Mizuno that actually gets good reviews? It sure seems like it is the most popular model. Any that aren't such demanding rackets?

    I want to settle with a racket and buy 3, I am not satisfied with the Ns9900, I have pretty much broke my AT900t and getting accustomed to the SW35.
    I want to try more and more knowing I can settle on a racket that I really like and buy a few.

    from reviews, the t700 seems to be a great weapon, however, this also seems to be hard to wield also. like said, try the victor range as you have a part sponsorship.

    I have tried the BS11 and it's slightly too flexible for me, SW35 Is good so far, still getting used to it as it is different from all the rackets I have currently.

    always remember, and this sometime fools users and buyers of rackets. the stiff shaft is good etc and the person using it may think and feel like they like, and are comfortable with the stiff shaft when knocking up. however, always fair the review of racket in intensive play to make sure that in tight situations, one can still wield the 'specified' racket

    The Luminasonic 9 is the other Mizuno that has good reviews. It is less demanding but also has less outright power. However, it's strength is in the speed that it offers.
