    Default Tetracross 700 vs GP-10 vs Ti-10

    I have no experience with Mizuno rackets, but as people have been talking about the Tetracross 700 and the GP-10 looks to be desirable, I was wondering how they would compare to the racket I am currently set on getting-the Ti-10-that is, unless convinced otherwise.

    The best person to talk to is TwoBeer as he has both TC-700 and GP-10.

    Wow, I just checked the prices from shuttle-house, and they're outrageous compared to the Ti-10.

    You mean it's cheaper or more expensive ?

    I've asked Mr Twobber about the Tetracross 700 and GP10, and he says that the TC700 is better, atleast for him it's one of his favourites..

    Oh well.. I'll just quote his review on the TC700:
    Quote Originally Posted by Twobber

    Durability has been good so far, no problems there.. They seem more durable than my experience with Nanospeed.. They have had no problem taking up to 34 lbs of stringing so far.

    I find there are more manouverable rackets, around. but they they usually lack the raw power for an attack game. The TC700 is much more manouverable in my view than any other racket I've tried in the same "power"-leauge.. for example.. It s more manouverable than ARC-10, TI-10, AT900P, AT700, Woven 11 etc. I find its almost the same manouverablity as NS8K (but more powerful than NS8K)

    For me the power is similar or better than AT900P and AT700 and definitvely better than ARCS-10. NS8K and many others.

    I find it very userfreindly and easy to use.

    Very solid feeling (ARC-10 has more solid feel), but more solid feel than NS9000 for example..

    Great racket.

    I have tried the GP-10s (I tried them before trying the TC700).. They felt great, but I felt the TC700 felt even better!

    /Twobeer
    Hmm.. maybe it's the 'best racquet in the world'... No negative comments
    These reviews and opinions can be different to every person though.

    I'm planning to get one when I'm back in Japan at the end of the year as well..

    Oh yeah Twobber, thanks again for the review !

    It's a lot more expensive. It's posted at around 24,150 Yen, and converted, that's ~$242 USD.

    Eh, I don't think it'd help lower the cost that significantly that it'd be in a range I'd want to pay. I'm only willing to spend up to perhaps $180 right now, so I was going to buy a Chao Pai Nano Power 728 from Mr. Dink and a Ti-10, which would be under that amount. I was just curious about these rackets after reading some threads.

    Does anyone know of a less expensive shop?

    Just get the old one.. 14490yen, that's a 40% discount.
    The old version is the one that Twobber's using.
    And 14490 yen, that's.. about 130USD. Have a group-buy and the price will even be lower for each person. Just add the shipping fees.
    100yen per 1USD was quite a long time ago.. the exchange rate's different now.

    Just remember, there are only 16 more left in their stock.. 8x 3UG4's and 8x 3UG5's. Or maybe only 15, because I want a 3UG5 TC700 so badly right now..

    Well, let's see how many people want to get into this group buy, and we'll see how low it'll go.

    The discounted TC700's at Shuttle-House are all gone

    Fortunately, there's Kaiseng Badminton that we can take a look at now, with their very competitive prices.

    Don't look at the old TC700 any more, Twobeer did mention that the new version is more than a face lift and there's discernible improvements.

    Go order more TC700 from Kai Seng !
