    I already had a try with the tour (silver), it really was way too light if you ask me... It didn't feel stable....
    but with 3 grams heavier, stiffer and headheavy, the 'elite' sounds a lot better

    by the way... "handcrafted"? yeah sure...

    the Tour is indeed light. but damn what a great racket to look at. my personal preference is still heavier racket. 90g +/- is the best range for me.

    i haven't received the racket yet. those are the official photos from Carlton that you see all over the web. i will have better photos when i have the rackets on hand.

    It's funny how some brands just become prevalent in certain countries, and others don't. Carlton and Yonex have been the prevalent rackets down here for the past 30 years (ignoring Epsilon), yet it's only just now we're starting to see people with other brands.

    One thing I do like about the Carltons is the commitment to making the frame more aerodynamic. That's one thing I can actually see as making a noticable difference to how fast the racket moves through the air when you swing it. Albeit only during smashes and overhead shots.

    Anyway, I've emailled all the AU distros as well as that place in Belgium to see what they have. A friend of mine is coached by someone who is sponsored by Carlton so I might hassle her next time I see her, too.

    Probably. Coz you know, women are that dumb that they need everything coated in pink to figure out if they're supposed to buy it.

    Which is of course why everything I own is blue. Coz you know....I'm a boy.

    Even though Blue was originally a woman's color, and pink was a man's color. go figure.

    @kwun
    Are this Carlton new series sell at Asia region? Or just Europe like Fireblade....I dont like their (Carlton) marketing strategy, even Powerblade 9909 still cant be found in Indonesia And Fireblade Elite only in my dream since the price + shipping from Europe to Indonesia will empty my wallet very deep
    Tell them my concern @kwun, send the best Carlton range to Indonesia distributor. Why Carlton not following Victor, SOTX, APACS, Li-Ning (coming soon) challange YY domination in Indonesia....So far only Powerblade 9902 and Airblade 33, 35, 37 the highest series Carlton in my country

    looks like they're trying to match yonex on price as well, those are some expensive racquets!

    Everything is expensive in Europe. They won't be that much if they ever make it to SE Asia. The EU's 17.5% VAT tends to make prices look a little high for the rest of us.

    I can see why many Euro brands don't bother too much with SE Asian sales. You're going up against some big SE Asian companies that have a lot of pull, and distribution in some parts of Asia must be a complete nightmare.

    By concentrating on Europe, they have a customer base that pays top dollar, distribution channels that are solid and reliable, lower issues with fakes and price wars etc.

    How many of you guys in Indonesia or Malaysia would play with a Babolat/Wilson/Carlton over a Yonex at the same price?
