    Both my racquets were strung at 27lbs but since the string bed is denser on the TC700, the tension feels and sounds higher.

    So far, the reviews have all been good, not just on this forum but also on forum in China.

    It isn't a easy racquet to use initially, but once you get the hang of it, it is very good.

    String bed denser? How is it denser?

    well, i assume it means that the strings are closer together.....
    of course, i could be wrong...

    That's what I mean, and this is because there is one extra cross-string. Instead of the usual racquets with 22crosses, this one has 23 crosses.

    I was there so I pick it up from the store.

    Racket swung too fast?

    I am just wondering what tension you have your TC700 on?

    Not too sure, but my friend says that the TC700 feels hollow. He tried another friend's NS9000s and he took to it like fish to water ! He didn't have any problem adjusting to it and didn't miss any shots. His regular racquets are AT500 and AT700.

    The tension on my TC700 is 26lbs, which is the tension I used on all my racquets. I am also using BG66 which is the string of choice for me.

    Anyway, I am adjusting to the TC700 for sure, now able to control it better.

    I find that the GP10 swings faster, but that may also be because my TC700 is a 2U while the GP10 is a 3U.

    The Mizuno racquet frames are thinner than Yonex ones IMO.

    Is this 2U the same as the Yonex rating?
    If so, that's awesomely heavy!

    Is it thinner than the ArcSaber 10 frame as well?

    Jhirata, when you say mizuno is thinner than yonex are you referring to the material used or the design of the frame ?

    If it is the design, AT series has one of the widest side profile compare to other brands.

    I'm talking about the design. Both front-on and side-on, the frame's cross-section is thinner than both my AT700 frame and MP40 frame. It is not as thin as the Cab8 frame however.

    My TC700's measurements:
    At the 3 O'clock position from the side, it is 9.95mm thick, and 6mm thick front-on.

    At the 12 O'clock position, it is 10mm thick from the side and 6.5mm front-on.

    This, I don't know. I'll have to compare them later to see.

    Hmm... but he miss mah... sure hollow right? . Kidding..

    Is he an oval user? I can't seem to feel the shuttle with all the iso's resulting in a lot of mis-timed shots. Not sure if its the same feeling.

    When my legs recuperate, I'll ask to join you for a game to try out the TC700.

    TC700 is one of the least "hollow" rackets i know.. very very solid.. more solid than any of the NS-series. period

    NS9000s is more flexy and an easier racket to begin with :-) .also given the same string tension i think NS9Ks has aslightly bigger but less rewarding sweetspot, so more suitable for weaker players / girls :-).. real men would choose the X (or the TC700 )
