    I have the TKF and I am a little confused as to what the difference would be between the TKF, onigiri and the other that looks the same as the TKF.

    VICTOR AURASPEED 90 S
    The Auraspeed 90S uses two new technologies to increase the power of your shots and provide an outstanding feeling; Rebound-Transition Construction and Sonic-Rebound Technology. By introducing reflection points to key spots in the frame and using a new type of graphite, the racket offers you a smoother, speedier and more satisfying swing without requiring you to change your technique, giving you more power, speed and control at the same time. The R.T.C technology also combines with the frame to provide you more power while asking for nothing extra from you, as it drastically increases the energy transfer between your swing and the shuttle, letting you hit deeper forehand and backhand clears than before, and giving you extra, ferocious power for your smashes.

    When you bring all of this together, the Victor Auraspeed 90S offers you a strong-feeling, hard racket that does not compromise on speed, power or feeling. Thanks to its fantastic offensive and defensive qualities, the ARS-90S provides you with a rapid weapon that lets you play aggressively and conservatively whenever you want, and gives you a stunning speed advantage against every opponent.

    SPECIFICATIONS
    • Material:High Resilient Modulus Graphite + pyrofil + Nano Fortify TR + 6.8 shaft
    • Headshape:Isometric
    • Gripsize:G5
    • Flexibility:Stiff ○●○○○ Flexible
    • Balanspoint:Head heavy ○○●○○ Head light

    Challenge for Team CSI BC: Find a way to tell if TTY will be using a repainted TK7000SN or a real thing TK-FC!

    Apart from the 76 hole vs 72 hole thing, did we ever find out if the TTY was using a TK7000SN. i.e. someone looked at the frame up close and didn't see the tri shaped thing.
    Theory: TTY has always been using this racket. Someone prove it wrong.

    And damn, I was only in his shop last Thursday :(

    She's playing that fake TK-F for round about a year now, correct? I highly doubt that Victor provided her protoypes of the TK-FC such a long time before the presentation. It's usually a couple of weeks between the first sightings of unmarked protoypes and presentation. See GVS and Auraspeed 90S. So yeah, we can be pretty sure that she has been playing a TK7000SN for at least a large part of the past 12 months. And knowing how conservative she had been with racket changes in the past, I highly doubt too that she has made a switch right before WC and AG.

    And once more, the head of the TK-FC looks huge compared to the TK-F. Another camera lens distortion thing? o_O

    no. i had the priviledge to feel and see it up close in sg (they had samples:) ) and the tkfc head is indeed muh larger and rounder.

    Challenge accepted. Found a picture of her with the shaft and the shaft has the F+chinese character instead of FC, but it is clearly a 72holes layout. I place my bet on the repaint.

    Sad news for Europe again: Auraspeed 90S comes only in 4U at bold 179€. Victor International pretty consistent in regards of wrong decisions.

    The TK7000SN also has a 72 hole pattern. That's why it was quite a clever move from Victor to officially release a TK-F colored racket with OSP. ;)
    But looking at the latest few pictures from the Japan Open, the head shape seems to be still a little squashed from the sides. And if the TK-FC is indeed larger and more round, then it should be not so hard to distinguish a TK7000SN repaint from a real TK-FC.

    4U would be fine for me if it's the legitimate heir of the JS10. But the price is bold.
