I am planning to buy one of Gosen Ryoga too
so lucky i can find one looking for the same product
MBS looks not include string
which string will fit tenbu and shiden better
and do you choose free air shipping or ems?

I choose EMS parcel because it is faster and more secure (with ins). Its not expensive anyways, so it doesnt matter to me. I have emailed them last week and they said they just started selling ryoga series racket and they dont have stock now, but the stock will arrive to their store this fri/sat.

compare form their web i think
pro70 = bg65,
r4x 100 = bg66um, r4x momone = bg80, r4x tsuyoshi = bg68
nanocubic = nbg95, nanomicro = nbg98
i would like try nanomicro and the silver color looks more similar to lightning
also thank you for telling me about the stock

good news! Tenbu and Issen are getting a cosmetic refresh!
New colour for Issen. Look at all the black.

I don't think thats true. Please dont do that.. Its so obvious that you changed the colour.

Kwun is there anyway to remove #26 post for me please? I dont like a post like that to be in my thread. Its an insult to Gosen. I am a serious fan of Gosen.

Too begin with, I'll start from the appearance. The cosmetic looks very cool, pretty Japanese style blue and gold. The blue colour on racket head and shaft are different, I like the colour change very much. And I warp the handle with a blue overgrip, which is a pretty good match.
The racket is pretty even balance, I do not have accurate instruments to measure but its around 280mm strung with overgrip on. As I am using the Zymax62 which is a very thin and light string, you should get a higher BP if you use different string.
Let's get to something more related to playing. Though the head is a bit oval-shaped that is smaller that normal racket head, I don't find it hard to adjust. I guess if you can hit the shuttlecock with the centre even your previous racket has large sweetspot, there should be no problem using this.
The shaft is pretty stiff, with the combined effect of the hard Zymax62, it feels very hard on first hit, especially during warmup. There's one thing I like most, the swing speed is very fast, you can actually hear it when you swing it. In real playing, this is a powerful racket yet pretty controllable.
The downside of this racket should be the price to many. Yet to discover more.
Here's a quick review, very brief indeed. Will write a full review in the coming weeks.
