    Got an 85g one. The lead patches are for experimenting with on my BS11.

    I must be getting old

    Cyclist, ...shouldn't your shoulders be stronger from repetitive treading of those steep and punishing cobblestones terrain?

    I have always had a good laugh in an endearing manner everytime someone liken a (slightly) flexible racket to a wet noodle.

    Anyways, to the point, would a medium stiff racket benefit more from a 22-24 lbs tension or 30-32 lbs. tension in your opinion? Thanks.

    This is moving away from topic. For me, I like stiff rackets @ 27-28lbs.

    Bro so try the MX80 with BG66 Ultimax at 29lbs. Slighty smaller sweetsppt but does reap benefits.

    I can't handle BG66M @ 26lbs so I doubt 29 is going to reap me any benefits.

    For discussion sake, all else being equal (bp and weight except racket stiffness), how would you string a wet noodle (again, in an endearing manner) MX80 compared to the much stiffer VT80 (doesn't matter whether you like it or not...this is just for the sake of discussion)? Same stringing tension for both?

    Thanks again.

    lol!
    vt80 much stiffer than mx80?

    vt80 may be head heavier, but mx80 is no wet noodle...
    in fact, it is very much stiffer to play

    I can't really answer your question, not directly anyway since I have no idea.

    I'll start with my standard tension (currently 27lbs) like the rest of my rackets and adjust from there. Much stiffer rackets tend to require less tension but other factors like string density contribute too. E.g. my tc700 has 23 crosses across the same area resulting in a tighter stringbed compared to the ArcZ. I'm avoiding the vt80 because I cannot play with any rackets that are too head heavy -- I'm weak. In fact, the entire armotec series is out of my league.

    For the Mx80, even though I'll likely be comfortable with 28lbs, I'm sticking with 27lbs since it's my "warm up" racket before I graduate back to the tc700. Not tempted by isBen unless he passes me his mx80 :P.

    Maklike - you will have to let me know how you get on. The reason I havent bought one is that demon of yours has also been on my shoulder - all my rackets are currently medium flex. I currently use the BS12 and 09 and have a TW coded BS10 on the way which shoud sit someone between the 09 and a MX80 in terms of stiffness.

    Yeah Ben, I pretty much just caved because I sold off all the rackets that were gathering dust in my bag and had some spare coins. In all honesty, I'm pretty happy with being able to seamlessly switch between my BS10 and 12, depending on what sort of night I'm having. So we'll see.

    I have got the MX80 strung pretty low to begin with (25x23lbs) so hopefully that will compensate for the extra stiffness and 80 strings.

    If not......bring on the MX70!

    Probably be Monday before my package lands so I'll post up a mini-review Tues or Weds.
