    No grommets like 38lbs, need to twist and change grommets regularly (1-2 restring) if plays above 30lbs. VTZF2 @28lbs, the continuous tungsten carbide grommet survive but not the regular plastic grommet, if you are lazy or unaware of what you are doing, these will happen to your racket. This racket survived another 2 restring and finally RIP due to microfracture on the frame.

    Sorry im too lazy to do that,try search it up yourself :D
    Funny tho where this talks is going to,some people keep talking about the effect of going up to 38lbs string tension when the thing that asked was completely different,it is to differentiate if its true it was fake or not, not for the capability of the racket to holds up to 38lbs ,most people wont play at that high tension even the pros :D

    Little update how good of a doubles racket AVP has been for me. So after returning to badminton more than 3 years ago, I just recently received my 4th and 5th orange AVP. Meanwhile I have flirted with LN7II and LN9II. While for XD in some situations LN7II would be better, as I play 50/50 MD/XD I can not bother switching between these two very different racquets. In the end the speed and ease of use of AVP outmatches stronger drive and powersmash of LN7II. I would add that AVP has better sticksmash/whip potential. My current configuration is that i remove the factory grip + 2 handle cap clamps for a bit more HHness, strings are Yonex AS strung@27.5 lbs.

    Im looking for a mid-flex, head heavy racket for under 100 euro and it seems AVP is something for me. But where do people buy them? I am from Europe so would prefer a store inside the EU.

    I have found https://www.centralsports.co.uk/ and they have it, but they only ship inside the UK so cant buy from them. Would really appreciate some help with this!

    Edit: I ended up ordering from http://sportshorizon.com/ thanks all for help

    Have a look at the new Adidas Kalkul, Uberschall and other ranges, it sounds like the Uberschall F5 may suit you and hopefully just within your budget.
    I've used Victor Bravesword, Jetspeed and Auraspeed as my main rackets in the past along with AVP and Li Ning n7/9 but the new Adidas rackets are on par and in many cases cheaper.

    Does it take time to get adjusted to AVP?
    My Lethal 10 is slightly more flexible and I play so much better with it.

    for every racket change it always takes time to adjust/adapt. Different weight, balance, frame type, material, & all will feel different. Sometimes its small & need little time to adjust & sometimes it takes quite awhile.

    When im switching from Lining MP UC5000 to Victor TK770, 1st time use its im not quite comfortable with it but after 1 week im adjust to it, now its my favourite weapon.
    Then i get myself AVP. It takes me quite awhile to get used to it & up till now its not my fav racket. Its not AVP fault, i come from heavy puncher racket (99gr, 300+BP, box frame) & try to adjust to a lighter & fast racket (94gr, 293 BP, aero frame). Its totaly opposite characteristic that takes me longer to adjust. Yup, i dont quite like it but doesnt mean i cant play with it. I can play with it now but it just my feeling seem to be missing something.

    Restrung my AVP with Yonex Aerobite Boost at 26lbs, It felt like this string makes my avp a bit HH compare the previous BG66UM,

    The smash and clear with this string ABBT is also powerful.

    Yellow and black string also makes the yellow black AVP very sexy racket to look at.

    Anyone tried AVP with ABBT string before?

    Has anybody owned both the AVP and the Li-Ning N9-II (Turbo Charging 75)? I'm wondering if anybody can share their experiences with the two rackets. Both of them are often compared to the Bravesword 12 and are medium flex + slightly head heavy.
