    Default Head Power Helix Badminton Racquets

    Are the new Head Power Helix models available in the market?

    http://www.sgb-sports.com/news/fulls...2919/Head.html
    Head says its four new PowerHelix models - 5000, 7000, 8000 and 10,000 - are 56% more flexible than standard carbon thanks to the PowerHelix spiral structure which runs along the entire shaft, without losing control. The increased flexibility is designed to maximise the power release of shots.

    The visible silver PowerHelix spiral in the shaft is combined with HEAD's proven Metallix material in the racquet head and T-joint for even more power and control. The additional Energy Body technology ensures less air resistance to further maximize speed, power and maneuverability.

    Thumbs up love it

    I just tried Head Helix 5000 yesterday and fell in love with it right away. Before I tried it, I thought I would like Metallix 8000 or 10000 better but they felt too heavy. Funny thing is, as per the specs, Metallix 4000 is supposed to be heavier but it felt otherwise. I also liked Nano Power 700 but Helix 5000 is the best. Before this, I used Yonex MP33 and was pretty happy with it. I had tried several Yonex racquets last year and only one I liked was Nano 9900X. Couldn't find a single web site that sells it in US but just found a shop who does. Getting my 5000 for 85$ tomorrow.

    I tried Power Helix 8000. Very light racq., good overall balance, very good control, ideal for quick reactions for instance drives or defensive actions. But I do not agree with power, I was not able to create sufficient powerfull smashes so I was prone to counterattacks. Maybe you're a stonger player...
    I suppose that "10000" is little bit head heavier than "8000".
    If an advanced player want to try out the Power Helix Series just consider "8000" or "10000", otherwise she/he will be disappointed.

    I tired it, as a demo at mandarin badminton. works like a charm, because its a demo its strung at 22LBS. Jump Smashes are feel great for a med flex racquet, too bad they arent alot these days, i cant choose between that of the AT900T (my all-time fave)

    Would have liked to try them but from what I've read on the website, all the rackets are medium-flex. They need to make stiff & extra-stiff version

    according to the head website, the power helix 10000 is rated medium stiff and the 8000 medium flex. both the 5000 and 7000 are rated flexible.
