    Tried my friend's, I'm not an expert in rackets but this is what I think.

    Strung with BG65 at 24lbs:
    Power- I'd say about a high 7 to 8.
    Control-probably around 5-7, maybe it's because of the tension.

    I'm the offensive type, and I don't like the feel of this racket,but I'd say get this racket if it fits you. That friend of mine had a great time playing with this racket, maybe it's because of the fact that he used it more than me?

    How much for this piece after best discount? Just racket,string & grip.

    I saw the retail price RM399, and straight away like :eek::eek::eek:

    Price tag at my local store is RM299, after discount will be about RM260-280, including bag and string. But that's in Kelantan though.

    Is the "woven" name a sign that SOTX has made it big in the badminton world? :p

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    Or maybe Fleet came up with the name from a different source?

    thanks buddy, probably price varies area to area. Apacs do come out with sort of same type, could be NanoPower 900 or else and price's not that steep, quality could be on par with Fleet. I've no idea on SOTX, not avail in M'sia.

    It is the Nano Pro 9000, not NanoPower 900.

    That should be true. But the thing is, rackets in Kelantan are SUPPOSEDLY pricier than in KL or anywhere. Like for example, I bought my Edgesaber for RM180 here and my friend got it for only 95 or so in KL.

    Maybe the store you've been to has a bigger price tag? Try checking other stores.

    FLEET and FELET are two different brands.
    Woven 999 you can look into the new Fleet line up of Woven 1000IV
