    Wondering if someone can put my mind to ease about my racket being fake or not. I've brought an issen from Thailand in ss sports in central plaza. They're a chain and are listed as a store under her Thailand distribution Page.

    Things that are strange, does issen come with carbon handles for g6? I've just stripped my grip off and the grip looks like soft wood colour wise and it's got staples and screws in.

    Also the serial number on the shaft starts with rgws and then 5 digits. Which doesn't match the gosen distribution codes I found for older gosen rackets on a Page here on BC. However it is laser etched.

    Otherwise the paint decals seem perfect and shaft is stiff.

    Planning to try the Ryoga series. I tend to like really stiff racket. My 2 current racket is a NS9000 Type X and Mizuno tetracross 700. Which racket would be most similar to the one that I current have? Anyone have any suggestion?

    Secondly, anyone know if there is a difference between version 1 and Version 2 of the same model?

    Shiden is incredibly fast for a 89g factory weight (w/string) racket. My current Shiden is 98.5g at BP280mm but feels much faster than a NS9900. It is stable and stiff but just simply too fast as it has virtually no air resistance. Faster than the latest braveswords. A very all round racket that packs power, subjected to your swinging action.
    where did you buy yours? :P
    any chance that you dont love it anymore and want some yonex racquets for it?

    If some of you have noticed, the ryoga series comes with a wood colored handle which might have confused some people



    actually beneath this wood colored composite is carbon fibre!

    Apparently the ryoga's serie's shaft is continous straight into the handle and is fused a carbon fibre "pipe" that goes the full length of the handle. as dissected by 溜达 of badminton.cn

    Finally have a chance to play with this racket yesterday. Racket has a really fast swing speed and is excellent for defense. I find the shaft is not as stiff as I thought it will be will. I would rate the shaft to be slightly more flexible than my TC700 or my 9000 Type X. Due to the swing speed , it took quite a bit of time for me to adjust. My primary racket is the TC700. Hard to say if the racket is more powerful than my tc700 at this point since I had not fully adjusted to the racket. But when times I hit accurately in the sweetspot, the racket generate a lot of shuttle speed and also gives me a bit better angle on my smashs( probably because it is slightly less stiff than my tc700). Overall I am quite happy with the racket, but will defintely take time for me to adjust. I am most likely switching to this racket for doubles since defending is quite a bit better compared to my other 2 racket.

    The shiden and ZM72 is a sweet combo.

    How does the 'new' Ryoga Ougi compares to the Shiden?
