    Actually the reverse for tour and game. Game has lesser technology material than tour according to site. Game version have nanomesh whereas tour version has namd

    Actually I don’t understand.. what is wrong with current 88d??? It’s just a sh*t marketing thing to sell more rackets with new colour.. those wider frames and increased sweetspot will not be noticeable at all!!! The die hard fans of 88d/s might fall prey for it.

    If they are going to drop the price of old ones and sell alongside of this.. Time to buy the old ones and be with it!! Honestly I have no time during the rallies to see how those colours glitter nor give the racket to someone and asking them to play while I watch!!

    The old ones are absolutely GEM!!!

    Well, as usual just wait and watch for the reviews and comparisons.
    Meanwhile, I am waiting for the full frame photos, camel gold 88d

    .. by 1%. The marketing team drops that.

    And by the way, more expensive. :D

    expected from Yonex actually.
    Simple to nothing & then packaged with golded & shinny word & it turn into a diamond.
    So far we see racket that buff the wielder but no debuff or curse for the opponent so far. It still an uncharted area for sure.
    Who knows, maybe one day Yonex would paint the racket with bright shinny Silver & claim it as new paint tech where it had 10% chance to blind the opponent for 1sec due to the light reflection hit the opponent eye:p

    Ha ha ha spend about $200 may be for a new colour way, May be 1% to 5% increase in wider sweetspot and perhaps steeper smash also as if it’s gonna increase ur skills and playability to a greater extent!! Anyone saw the way victor axleson’s racket broke in this Thailand open?? Btw.. it’s the latest and greatest 100zz 3u..!!! Deemed to be the best racket (infact I also have one)

    And yeah new is always better!! Lol!! U break ur existing racket perhaps a good option for this new looks but for the ones who have the existing 88d/s I don’t know!!!

    Marketing strategy is alway go by n-1 that is, u don’t get a new technology or the best version always cos they can’t sell the next racket . your latest racket will always be obsolete some day..

    pretty sure Yonex would say:
    With complicated calculation & thousand times simulation we put the silver color in strategic place & angle where it had 10% chance the paint catch the light around the court & reflect it to your opponent face & based on complex medical research, sudden light on the eye will numb any human for at least 1 sec.:D

    I use a 3u 88d and it's my fav racket wonder how 3u Vs 4u on the new ones will be.

    For an example I cant play with the 3u zfii my arms get tired but the 3u 88d is just perfect. Guess will have to wait and see

    Well well, with what I am seeing right now, I think these are gonna be even more faster than the previous versions, and damn those colorways are gorgeous.
