    Majority disagrees with Paul. It's not a big difference in any event.

    It would be easy if I received rackets from one brand together however, I tend to get all sorts. Of course players then want comparisons which isn't when I returned a racket months ago. I am happy to be corrected, but we must also remember that occasionally a rogue does slip through the net. I wasn't expecting to record some of the results I got from a number of rackets last year, having read what some members hear had to say. But I have to comment based n my sample.

    Frustratingly, i am still waiting for the latest batch of rackets from Victor. That could be another few months yet and then it's old news to you guys. Not sure if and when i will get the latest Li-Ning rackets too.

    Does the AS90S have a bigger frame compared to the AX88 and Victor TK? Do they swing slower than similar rackets with the bigger frame?

    ax88/99 have almost the same head size as ZFII, so yes AS90S frame is much bigger

    Ehm no....AS90S and AX88 have nearly the same headsize as I tested both at the shop.
    Ended up with the AX88d but I liked the AS90S as well...

    I do not own not a single yonex racket, but last time I checked z-strike and ax88s, their head sizes were almost the same ax88s being few millimeters longer and wider at the bottom, but we are speaking about few millimeters, I think there are many people here who owns ax88 and for example z-strike/zfII so they could do us a favor and compare head size

    Mate, better stop right there before it gets even more embarassing. Of course the difference is only a few millimeters. I mean, what do you expect? But that doesn't change the fact that AX88S/D, AX99 and 90S are bigger, and the Z-family is smaller. Period.

    z-strike and as88 difference is very marginal, since z-strike is the smallest of all (except z speed 1st gen), strike is a just bit smaller, and last time I checked as88 head to zfII, it is the same length but a bit wider at the bottom and narrower at the top

    I have to respectfully disagree. I have all of the above mentioned rackets.. The DZS is significantly noticeably smaller. There's at least a difference of 5mm at the T-joint area when I stack them with the top of the heads lined up. This is comparing a DZS and 88S btw.

    Please don't drink and type, Z-Strike head is way smaller than 88s, mean while the "almost same" you meant here should be Z-Strike and ZFii...
