New Year's Gift For Dad
From your personal preferences, which rackets below do you prefer most?
Which one is more powerful? controllable? durable?
YangYang Tactic 8500
I'm thinking of buying one for my dad because his old FLEET racket was broken. BTW, he guide me to love the game and now that i'm more skillful than him
Lastly, thanks for your help..

Personally, I like YY Tactic 8500.
Not only because it's light with excellent control, but it also has Yangyang and Zhao Jianhua's signature on the cone. A excellent racket, with 2 legend's sig, means a good weapon on court, and a good collector's choice on shelf.

do you use the Tactic 8500 regularly?
have you clashed the racket? how bad is it?
i just wanted to know is the racket durable?
I heard that the Tactic 8500 is equipped with Muscle Wave Power frame. what is it?
is the head heavier than MP55?
does the Tactic 8500 has a long or traditional length version?
I'm sorry to pose so much questions, because i'm a fanatic of this racket.
A snapshot of the racket would be nice.. ~
p/s: this is going to be a good gift for dad since i have my MP55 and we could fight to see who has better skills and tactics where racket doesn't post a problem in the true match..
Ha! HA! Ha!

Yangyang Tactic 8500 is made of Kelvar (one of my favorite material, for light and strength) and graphite.
It's regular length, and a balance racket (not head heavy or light). Can't compare with MP55, since I almost never used that racket before.
Yeah, since I am a double player, I got some clashes (10, maybe) with the racket, for the past yr, I think I have at least 2 or 3 serious ones (some paint chips). However, the racket still stands, and serve me well. So, I think it's pretty durable.
Within my 10-15 hrs of weekly training, average, I use this racket no less than 3 hrs.
For the "Muscle Wave Power frame", I have no idea what is about. According to the name, my guess is some shape to help the generation of power. Can't say 100%.
For a pic, let me see if I can borrow my friend's digital camera this wkend.

what string do you have on the Tactic 8500?
01-20-2003, 09:38 AM #7
String on 8500: BG65@ 21 lb. Might switch to Ti strings when re-string. Current candidates: Gosen B505Ti (currently testing on MM90), BG68Ti (wait for friend's review)
Pic: Will try to borrow the camera this wkend, so, maybe u have to wait for several days.
