    Lots of reviews say techtonic 7 to be great all rounder and masterpiece racket
    Limited astrox 88d pro review says good power, slightly more flex and great control
    Which one to prefer..??

    I was actually looking to get and review 100zz, Tectonic 7D, Turbocharging 80 all 4u, for fun, all 3 seem very positive, and also cause I have some 25k fitness money to burn before June. WFH situation seem like non ending, cases raising, clubs not opening is making me kind of help less.

    I would say if you have money to buy one, you probably can buy both, why don't you try both and post review here? (If you are able to play these days)

    I’m playing badminton since may 17 2020 ( after partial lockdown)
    All clubs are open in my place
    Regarding getting both rackets it will cost around 23-24k
    Also astrox 88d pro is not available yet
    Lining tech 7 will cost 11k
    After sad demise of ld force, I’m looking for high end racket , not too stiff
    These two seemed right option
    Will c

    I got tectonic 7 last Monday
    Strung with bg 66 Force 27lbs
    Have tried comparing it with jpx limited (i don't have 88Dpro :( )
    Feels more solid and the shaft is more stable and stiffer than jpx even though jpx says it has a stiff shaft.
    Easy to use, the shaft feels around medium to stiff, even balance, and ig the repulsion power n touch feeling is the best thing from this racket. IMO jpx wins in terms of power and steep smash is easier over tectonic 7.

    I don't have 88d Pro but I do have Tec7 and quite a few rackets from Yonex.

    It's true that Tectonic 7 is a great all rounder.
    I can bet that the Tec7 is more flexible and more user-friendly than 88d pro.
    About control and power, it's depended on your technique...

    It would be easier to give advise if you can tell us your current racket and impression on it.

    Hi
    I used ld force matt black 4u g5
    It was good powerful but not speedy
    I got shoulder pain after intense games ( (fitness issues and muscles are not that good to wield this beast for long time )
    I loved solid feeling
    Now I’m looking for head heavy and medium to stiff racket ( not too stiff )
    Based on few reviews astrox 88d pro is less stiff
    Heard techtonic is good too
