    What do you mean by thanks to me ? Later the forum people here get the wrong impression that I sponsor you the racquets and will be crashing down the door !

    Anyway, do provide your feedback on the Tattoo after you use it.

    Ok, now Karakal really need to send the commissions cheque to me ! ha ha.

    Anyway, most importantly, you guys like the Karakals and I hope my advice or rather opinion is suitable for you as racquets are very personal choice.

    Alana07, you got your mtec85 ? Did you get a chance to use both of them and which one do you like more ? Let us know your feedback on the racquets.

    Babyface, glad you got your tattoo and I hope it is doing good for you ?

    i shld be getting the mtec85 tomorrow, its on the way now. as for the tattoo, mine's had the b/p 290-300 mm version. its strung with karakal's nano 68 string at 24 x 26 lbs, original handgrip covered by a ashaway thin ribbed type overgrip. so now the b/p is almost at 288-290mm...tiny bit of head heaviness can be felt. its an easy racket to play, generates good power given its light weightish nature. no complains about this racket.

    Teoky: how do you find the 85?
    i find that the tattoo is a very light racket in comparison with my arc 10, and a little more even balanced.
    i play singles and would love to hear some feedback in the difference between the 85 and the 80.

    I think most of the Karakal racquets has 290-300mm bp printed on the racquet, even my Revo M76 also has that.

    Glad you like it.

    The MTEC85 definitely more power than the Tattoo since it is heavier. The MTEC 85 will be closer to the Arc10 in terms of weight though it is still not as stiff.

    In terms of design, the MTEC85 has a thicker head profile and also the shaft is thicker. It is definitely better for singles than doubles but as it is not overly heavy, you can still use it for doubles.

    I was hesistant in getting the MTEC85 as I thought it might be too heavy and not suitable for my doubles play but I must say I am pleasantly surprised and now uses the MTEC85 quite often.

    Let me have a hand-on-experience on the Karakal rackets. I like to know what's the commotion about.

    I'm sure my MTec 70 has a BP of 300-310mm, I'll go and check later.

    The 290-300mm is what's printed on the shaft, the actual BP will be different depending on whether you put on additional grip or not. If you string the racquet and didn't put a grip on it, the bp will probably be > 300mm.

    What do you mean the frame profile is different ? I am comparing it with my MTEC 80 and it looks the same.
    wow, after discount is still cheaper than official online price from official Karakal distributor in Singapore ......

    of course the distributor's pricing will have to be higher than their retailers' , else no retailer would want to help sell their products.

    for those in singapore, can take a look at the rackets at mustafa. i think all going for $89. i saw SL70 (both old and new color), SL80, MTec 70, 80, 85, 90 all on the rack. the rackets are collecting quite a bit of dust hanging there.
