The love for the TC700 is bipolar. Sir Dink, for example, isn't quite a fan. OTOH, there are a bunch of us who are fanatics.
The only way to know is to try it out for yourself (sounds like an old tune now). There are a bunch of them in the marketplace so you can test them out for yourself at minimum loss.

The tc700 probably isn't as stiff as the ns9900, but has a unique kick-point which may be hard to get used to.
More suited for singles, IMO.
Use any string you like.. I like it with bg65.

may i know wat u mean kick point?
feature like gosen ?
or feature which allow flex at some point at T joint?
was it heavier head to ns9900?
its suitable for singles bcoz heavy head therefore slower in defend thus not for doubles players?

I finally had the chance to test out the TC 700 2U G5 last night. The string is BG 68 Ti @ 30 X 33. The racket is rock solid and absolutely powerful!!! In fact, it is much easier to use than the RSL X2 Gold. Me and many others wish Mizuno would produce this great racket again.

You've come in late, way late to sample and taste sweet TC700 but never too late (for anyone for that matter). Of course it is better than the X2 (even X5; if you've tested one, yet!). As for out of production issues...well, you should've known that there's still plenty of stocks available if you bother to scrounge around,.

I'm glad to see there are still a lot of fans supporting TC700.
Mine was broken my stringer was trying to string it at 27x29 BG65

Sad. The tc700 are quite tough and I dun see how stringing to 29lbs would destroy it. Mine was previously strung at 28lbs and routinely suffer a few knocks per game. They are all still going strong.
Were there any cracks on your racket before the stringing?
06-07-2011, 05:55 AM #519
I doubt that. It was never clashed before.
One fine day I took out my TC700, the string was already snapped. It was in my bag at least 4 days before I realized that.
I cut the string immediately. Nevertheless, I suspect the old string had caused damage to the frame before I knew it.
06-07-2011, 07:00 AM #520
Yeah.. probably caused by the old string as you mentioned. My condolences for your loss.

I think the weakest link in this racket is the grommets. In the past, I've owned a GP-9, GP-5, Mystic Power 500, TC500 and Luminasonic 5. I notice that the grommets gets worn rather quick. My TC500 grommet is worn so bad that you can see the frame.
I know shuttle-house sells the replacement grommets for a few bucks, but I'm not to worried about as I don't really use it anymore and it's just sitting there collecting dust.

Is the aerodynamic design of the TC700 good? I, personally, prefer faster rackets.
This racket seems to be a harsh task to many, but i would like to see if i can conquer it.
06-08-2011, 09:16 PM #523
The frame is not in aerodynamic design likes those Brave swords. But it has a unique frame shape, slightly smaller than isometric head, therefore it moves faster.
Once getting used to the frame shape, you begin to reveal the power of TC700.

Does the TC700 has a BP of 305+? it seem a little bit too head heavy
06-20-2011, 10:01 AM #525
Any review on it's brother, the TC500?
