    'round here....
    Especially when someone might be struggling with power (often slow swinging), that might be too light. Another step lighter and less head heavy compared to all other choices... the Stilistin rackets are classified as head heavy, but looking at the balance that doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense. Maybe the W1.1 is an option? @Dave1011 any comparison been F1, F1.1, A2, A09.1, W1.1, W09.1, ....? I don't remember which of those you have...

    The Spieler W09.1 is available in at least 2 colour's, there may be more available in other regions.

    From that list I've got W1.1, F1.1, A2, A09.1 and the W09.1, some are with my stringer at the moment so I'm unable to weigh them.
    I hope i will get them all back in the next 2/3 days.

    Well we decided on this Spieler W09.1 since it is in-stock. Quite a cheap buy too around €34.49. Colour is a bit meh but it feels light and nimble for front court female. Now only 1 month left for another 2 months wait for courts to be opened again so we can test out the adidas....

    It looks better in hand, there is this other colour available in UK and other colours elsewhere

    If as @speCulatius mentioned, the racket is too light then look at the A09.1 or P09.1 which should be a similar price.

    Had chance to test Wucht P8. Still new but the owner didnt like it so he sell it & i want to taste it 1st before making a deal to adopt it.

    At 1st im abit disheartened as its 4U instead my usual 3U racket. But when im hitting on court, surprisingly it had overwhelming power & very good feeling when smashing. The frame are quite repulsive & im throwing the shutlle way out of the court few times initially. Not sure if its due to the compact head or the aeroish frame which makes my swing faster thus creating such a power tho it just 4U.
    Tho i said its faster, it not as fast as AVP (my fastest racket i own) but it noticably faster than my TK770 for sure.
    In term of control, its very obedient. I want to put the shuttle where & it respond very well. Not like my TK770 that sometimes its kinda abit rebelish.
    So far switching from my TK770 to P8 today, i find no problem. Just minor adjustment & thing doing fine. Very little miss hit (surprisingly as it had compact head which known to had smaller sweet spot) & improved accuracy in my shot. The only issue are when im slicing, many times the shuttle hit the frame but spare my humanity, time will solve those issue for sure.
    Overall, its a good racket & i definitely will adopt this racket.

    For Note. Tho with all my comment above, its still a beast that not easy to tame for sure. Few of my friend (especially beginner one) try it & it makes their already bad shot into worst. It still a demanding racket that require u a good skill to handle it. Doesnt need to be perfect like a pro as im also didnt consider myself close to the pro, its demanding but not very very demanding.

    I will weigh all my adidas rackets including head weight to compare them when I get chance.

    Dave do you own a badminton shop? The number of new things you showcase here is insane!

    No, just an issue with liking to try new rackets!
    Thankfully most of the Adidas range are reasonably priced compared to other brands.

    I ordered one of each colour of the Spieler E08.2, I saw the racket was available a while ago but finally decided to try it.

    The slight Y shape of the frame intrigued me and reminded me of old Prince and Carlton rackets I had when I was much younger!

    In terms of the spec, its similar to the Spieler P09.1 so it will be interesting to compare them.

    A bit late to the Wucht train, but managed to pick up P7 courteous of Dave1011. Here's a very early reaction from half a session.
    An enjoyable racket to use. Compared to my A5, a bit more feedback and quite a bit more power. I didn't seem to lose anything in speed either, but I'm extremely rusty and not playing at the level where I can properly judge this racket yet, but it seems great so far.
    Just a shame that this racket and the P8 seem immune to the discounts that I've seen for the rest of the range in the UK, otherwise I would've tried one sooner.

    Ah YOU got my potential spare!
    I also progressed A5 to P8. A5 was lacking headweight but still got ok power and great accuracy. Started this season with P8 and the touch play is outstanding. Power is slowly coming back too. I lucked out finding a p8 on offer at pdhsports at start of lockdown #1. 3u listed at 4u too, but its a 4u once plastic wrapper removed.
