    Hmm not really. my Arc Z atm weighs about 95-96g, assuming grip and string weights between 10-11g (which I have weight them separately) it would work out to be about the same = 85g. But the arc Z would have a slightly heavier head. But of course, I'm sure 1-3mm shouldnt make much difference (I hope not haha).

    Yes, I can't wait either. However, it'll be hard to compare between the rackets I have.

    Firstly, the T2 will be coming with Ashaway strings as the Panda distributor insists on them. I think I'll be getting the 0.67 ones as I don't think I'll like the idea of 0.62. As for the Tantrum 200, the one I have unfortunately is a 4U version which is obviously bit lighter. The seller (racquet sports) didn't tell me he was sending a 4U. If I knew, I would have insisted on a 3U. Plus I haven't really had much court time with the Tantrum 200 either.

    The reason the Z is so quick through the air is purely an aerodynamics / frontal area equation.

    Is HERO status the ultimate BC accolade? Or are we going to have Hero of Heros? Dink's "Regular member" tag needs changing... MODS!

    LiNing,

    If you genuinely don't know about this brand and merely wanted more information, then of course I'm big enough to apologise.

    The phrasing of your post can easily be read as a troll - an attempt to provoke.

    Please remember, there are a LOT of excellent rackets produced by smaller companies that do not or cannot sponsor professional players. This does not mean they produce low-end 'childrens' rackets.

    Yes, I stand corrected as I forgot about the Z's reduced air drag, since I was concentrating on comparing the shafts of both rackets.

    But having a longer shaft can possibly increase head speed because when struck with the same force, the racket head will displace more due to a longer length of the shaft to flex. Does that make sense?

    But what I can't grasp is how the T2 can have such fast swing despite being moderately head heavy and just traditional isometric design (mine is 288 mm unstrung, no overgrip)?

    Not really. If the shafts were identical except for length you could make direct comparisons, but to assume length is the only factor of flexion is a gross oversimplification.

    I'm fairly certain it's down to frame cross section - it reminds me very much of the NS9900 in this regard, and we know how fast that is through the air...

    It's a Panda secret.

    Length is only one factor, the other being reduced air resistance via a compact frame and slim shaft.

    If length were not a factor, Yonex would not bother making it longer with a shorter handle and shorter support cap to compensate.

    Hmmm... let me try a guess.

    As Mark A suggests, a thinner frame cross-section would help it cut thru the air faster. And it being nicely balanced and having a slightly flexy shaft also helps the racket head speed too.

    I'd also guess that since the U2 doesn't have these "features", then its racket head speed won't be as special as the T2. Correct?

    Retail about: $125/reel.

    I have a few reels left at: $95/reel shipped to you in Malaysia. $90.00 shipped in the US.

    Sorry but I don't have the chance right now to check your prev posts, but have you wielded the T2 before?If you have, you will understand it is not an Excalibur, but more like Zorro's fencing rapier. I'm only trying to understand why the T2 is as brilliant as it is...no need to f this and s that.
