    Okay ... if I tell you to rate the power, control, drive and ease of use on 10

    Thanks! So the onigiri is closer to 88D. Anyone has experienced the TK-9900? I read Paul’s review on his website and he said that TK-9900 is a user friendly ZF2 seems like the closest one to AX99.

    TK9900 is not user friendly. It is really stiff/rigid and fun to use during practice, but not something I'd use in a game

    Do you have any recommendation AX99 alike in Victor lineups?

    So I took a punt and got a DriveX 7K 4UG5. Usual rackets i use HX900 4U, MX80 4U; also previously used JS10 and BS10.

    Initial impressions after a session:
    Picking this i was really quite surprised at how head heavy it was (much more than MX80). Was very glad i picked the 4U and not 3U. Really nice and stiff which i like and hitting the shuttle could definitely feel that crispness. It reminded me of that stiffness of the JS10 which is probably with pyrofil. On defence I thought it'd be tougher to manoeuvre given it felt head heavy but actually not much of an issue probably because it was 4U. The flat play was nice with the stiffness and being fairly fast helping a lot.

    So far liking it a lot. Like a HX900 but stiffer and faster imho!

    According to Victor website, the frame of the 90K seems to be an upgrade of the 90S. Victor said the swings of the 90K can be smoother, faster, and downward shots more effortless. Can you see the difference between the frames and does the 90K really feel like an upgrade or this is just marketing?

    None in the English language. Saw videos in Chinese, Thai, Cantonese and Bahasa Indonesia
    Held it briefly in my favourite shop. Stiffer shaft head slighter heavier compared to 90s. Sooo tempting.

    I hope it is at least as head heavy as the Duora Z Strike. If yes then I think it will be one hell of a racket! With the same head heaviness and the more aero frame and a stiffer shaft. Oh my! But if it is less than the DZStrike then it might be too even for me

    I cant find much info on the 80x, but isnt the 80x also a bit more heavy and stiff compaired to the 90s? Sow how would 90k compair to the 80x?

    My auraspeed 90K is on its way, hope it will work well for me as I had great hopes for the JS12M but for now it does not work out…

    Head heavier. More stiff. Less aerodynamic.

    Frame size isn't the factor. Frame shape.

    You are telling me the aero+box frame of Yonex is more aerodynamic that the sharp frame of the 90K?

    Oh wait I take all that back. Balance is a bout the same. Stiffness around the same too. But yes faster frame.
