    Hello everyone, I have a 77 3U, can someone tell me the balance point of that racket? YONEX doesn t provide that info easily.
    I would like to know which one is more difficult to deal with. basing on what i know, AN9000C has a balance point of 298 mm, is 77 3U heavier on li ning one?
    I would appreciate your help and feedback in order to help me deciding if I should give a try to 9000C.
    Thank you!

    Ax77 3U feel more head heavy and also a bit heavier,
    Shaft is same medium but 9000C feel softer and easy to control and use.
    For smash i think ax77 3U is better but depend on your skill.

    Oh ? You have both of them? So the 9000C is better in control ? What about the defense ?
    I am still a newbie but not too bad in skill, doing lots of tournaments to have expérience.

    I have aeronaut 7000B which has basically the same spec as the 9000C.

    Super easy racket to use. It's a more jack of all trades, but if that's what you are looking for, you'll love it

    I have 9000C.

    The frame and shaft are very high bouncy.
    According to my Lining-User friend, it's way better than old Lining products.

    Pros :
    1. Best control among rackets.(Tier 1)
    2. Very good defence when holding at the cap. (The cap design is very good for doubles players)
    3. It's very good at drive and half smash when holding at the cap.
    4. Good and easy full smash when holding at bottom.

    Cons :
    1. I feel some vibration, I think it's the handle.
    2. Shaft is a bit too soft, I can't force it to generate power with brute force.
    3. To make best use, user need to often convert between the holding points. (Cap / Bottom)
    4. For the Swin Weight, I would expect more powerful full smash.(It's Good, but not Excellent)
    5. To make best control racket, the bottom frame is very thick, finding suitable grommet is super hard.

    9000C is a tier 1 racket.
    Rackets with higher performance are hard to acquire.
    It's user friendly to advanced players, but requires some more skills for other levels.
    If user lacks short power generation skill and grip switching skill, he/she can not make full use of this racket.

    Absolutely agree, probably because of the head is not as fast, therefore you need to be able to generate power with small movement/swing, when you get the opportunity to do a full swing tho, it packs a big big punch
