    Just seen this one on e78. And what a beautiful racket is that?! Open carbon... l o v e i t!!! :eek:

    I've seen that sort of "spring" they call the Gavun Shaft in a really strange Oliver racket once and I thought it was complete and utter nonense. And when have we last seen a real leather grip on a badminton racket?

    Data and pictures taken from e78.us:

    FEATURES

    GAVUN SHAFT
    This became synonym of ROOTS series racket.

    It able to increase swing power by applying kick point at middle and upper part of shaft.

    This world’s first unique technology and design concept was inspired by golf shaft technology.

    This racket kicks in two steps to generate and increase swing power.

    DELTA JOINT
    This feature cannot be forgotten as same as GAVUN SHAFT when you discuss about Roots series. It is called “Delta Joint”.

    Inverted triangle shaped joint has been applied at the connecting part of frame and shaft to stabilizing the angle of racket bending flexed. Thereby, fluctuation and torque at impact could be reduce while increasing controllability.

    Mitsubishi Chemical PYROFIL carbon
    For frame and shaft, Mitsubishi Chemical PYROFIL Carbon prepreg is applied as same as INFERNO series.
    ROOTS renewed because of latest carbon technology.

    Carbon see-through coating
    GOSEN adopted see-through coating which able to see the carbon sheet material. It is able to bring out original potential of racket compared to conventional rackets coating.

    * Rackets carbon pattern has individual difference by each. Your kind understanding would be much appreciated.

    I was mesmerised by it as well when I saw it in the 2018 catalog! Quite intrigued by the tech philosophy behind it as well.
    Sadly, I never saw any of the Roots series racquets in person as apparently its not very popular here so shops just bring them in on order.
    Just looked it up on e78 and wow its actually reasonably priced! Maybe you can do us all a favour and press the button! :D

    what a shame...

    btw, e78 got the balance wrong. It's not top heavy but even balanced as shown in the spec picture you've included.
    I've double checked the catalog and it states "282-288mm".

    Here's the Gosen racquet matrix. Those interested in the spec comparison table can see it in the catalog I've previously linked here.
    Screen Shot 2018-05-16 at 11.23.31 PM.png
    Roots Aermet Chronical is "BRACH" - stated as even balanced and even flex I'd assume it would be bang on the centre but no
    Never trust matrixes too much, feel like they just move things a little here and there to create more product distinction.
    Which is also why you should never do direct comparisons of matrixes between brands - they're always done in relation to their own products.

    It might not be the case for this racquet though maybe the Gavun shaft and Delta joint makes for a harder feeling despite medium flex

    I have an earlier version of the roots aermet series and I dont find the gavun shaft as something of significance.
    Maybe it was revolutionary when it was first introduced but comparing it with newer racket with similar specification I cannot find the gosen racket as something superior.

    I can feel it's flex and also the even balance. Tested for 3 games and absolutely not my type.

    It is very repulsive racket.
    Very difficult for me to control my clear shot.

    :D I sold one and still have one brand new (maybe I will look for trade in)
