    Both are stable rackets, i.e. no vibration, etc. But to me, X-Fire is head heavier and therefore I get more force on my smashes n strokes. On X-Speed, it feels lighter so i get faster swing, but lacks the sting on my smashes and strokes.

    Definitely agree with you on x-speed since I got one.. fast on mid to front court but lack of bite on stroke and smash which you required extra energy to generate power from x-speed.

    Which One Should I get? I am hard hitter and my power actually comes from fast swing. So should I get the X fire or X speed?

    And a bit of head heaviness helps too.

    And is the X speed powerful enough for a back court player?

    I would say X-Fire is more for back court player with strong arms and smashes. Xspeed is more for front player doing lots of drives and net shots.

    Does anyone know the difference between X fire and X fire 2? * Got the x fire and was wondering if the x fire 2 is better*

    X Speed can be sourced at 7k from amazon. Used to be readily available but after discontinuation and launch of x speed ii, it's the sellers market rn. :p

    Newer doesn't necessarily mean better and I'd never just assume that. :p

    Haven't had the chance to try it out yet.
