    In general, assuming a normal weight racket (84-87g), BP between 280-290 is ideal for most people. If no clue, I'd recommend:

    (Again, assuming racket weight: 84-87g)

    For beginners/intermediate all-around players: BP280-285
    For big hitters/offensive players: BP290-295
    For advanced all-around players: BP285-290

    It's best to start at BP285.

    Also, depends what you play, if singles or doubles attacking, lean towards a bit more head heavy. If doubles/mixed, or need a fast transitioning racket, go for 285 or less to start.

    Maybe because my SW35 is more head heavy than U1. My U1 is a lighter version hence the difference. How did you find the power between the U1 and SW35

    After i try to bend the shaft, the U1 is indeed stiffer than SW35. Previously i was stating how i feel when i was playing with it. But in actual fact the U1 is stiffer. Could the difference in feeling be caused by the balance point and weight difference?

    Sir Dink,
    You really should get your website up and running, at least with a bunch of FAQ's, so that you don't have to repeat yourself so often...

    Of course, it would be harder to transfer power with a head light super stiff U1 compared to a head heavier slightly less stiff SW35. It is just simple physics... the former requires much more swing power to bend the shaft than the latter.

    If anything, a more head heavy racket will feel less stiff and a lighter one will feel more more stiff.

    Bending the shaft can be misleading, only a general indicator when you are not able to test the racket. You need to test the rackets by actually playing with them.

    The weight and BP can be a factor but what you posted in the previous post, the factors are working in reverse: head heavy causes the racket to be perceived more flexible while lighter rackets are perceived to be stiffer.

    Huang originally said the SW35 feels stiffer and more demanding, not the other way around.

    Also, even the most headlight U1 was 287-288, not exactly headlight. And the lighter weight U1s were mostly 290-295.

    Panda Power Trinirt II

    Swing Weight : 85.1g
    BP : 288mm
    String : ZyMax 67 White
    Tension : 23x24 lb ECP no pre-stretch
    Stringer & Machine : Me & Gamma 8800ELS

    This racqet was the improved version of Trinity I. I liked the Trinity I very much and this is even better. I've been using T1 for a while and is about getting used to it. So it takes almost zero time for me to get use to T2.

    How does it feel? It's solid, quick, and easy to use.


    Panda Power Ultra II

    Swing / Weight : Unknown ( Sample )
    BP : Unknown ( Sample )
    String : ZyMax 67 White
    Tension : 23x24 lb ECP no pre-stretch
    Stringer & Machine : Me & Gamma 8800ELS

    This is amazing. I've tried this racquet with the same string at 25x26 lb(never intended for myself). And I got another chance to try it.

    All I have to say is, I LOVE this racquet. I can feel the solid feel of my power transfering through it. I can feel my smash is soild and my power is tranffered at high effeciency.
    This is better than ANY Yonex racquet I've tried/used. if you're hard hitter, attacking player, like high-tension, this is the racquet to give it a try.

    Panda was asking me what Yonex racquet I tried.


    Here is the long-waiting list I shall type out long time ago, and is not too detail.

    Cab series - Like them a lot, but when you have AT 800/900, why bother?
    Ti-Swing Power SA/SX/??/?? Liked it very much. Never owned one, all friends'
    Ti-10 - Never had enough time to play with it, liked it much.
    MP70 - like it very much, too bad it's a Japanese only model.
    MP99 - Good, it's becoming MP classic racquet
    MP100 - Good but frigile, broke too many.
    AT700 - dislike this racquet, I can't find the touch of this racquet
    AT800OFF - similar to DFF but harder to use
    AT800DFF - I like this one for AT800 series, execellent power.
    AT900P - Best ever Yonex racquet for the past 5 or more years, execellent frame design.
    AT900T - slightly different than the 900P, not recommended. when you have 900P why 900T
    NS9000S - If you like stiff, this is the one to go. I've strung so many of those.
    NS9000X - I don't think this is a good racquet for girls, it's REALLY that STIFF
    NS9900 - Replacement for whoever uses NS9000/AT900.
    ARC-7 - Too light, quick thou
    ARC-10 - Low requirement, easy to use, very forgiving.
    ARC-9 - pretty solid for a racquet marketing for females.
    ARC-Z - not worth the price tag, too light, no power(or to say, hard to generate power)

    I was wondering which BP and weight I should look for or which racquet to buy for me and my brother. U2, U1, trinity 1 or 2

    I currently play a AT900T 4U and sometimes apacs Nano PRO 9600 Tour. My brother plays AT900P. We both prefer to smash but he kinda likes to do net plays and drops compare to me where I like to hit as hard as possible.

    Easy.
    Assuming you're both around intermediate level, get T2 for your brother and U2 for yourself! That way you can also exchange and compare.

    Just got the T2 in the mail today. Just comparing it with the T1, the paintwork on the T2 is amazing and on par with high-end yonex rackets. I'll get a chance to try it out tomorrow!

    Lucky you! Mine arrived 2 days ago and is still being strung. I won't be able to try it out till this Friday! 96hrs to go!

    Even if it plays half as nice as it looks, I'll be happy...

    I just hope the strings on mine doesnt snap within the first session like it did with the T1 =S.
    Just swinging it around, it certainly feels/sounds like it cuts through the air faster than the T1.
