    Yeah I was really surprised by the weight.
    I got the g4 version with some cushion wrap and one overgrip since I have fairly large hands.

    I use the same grip style on the N9 and the weight is normal.

    To me N9-2 lacks a little sharpness at the front court, it offers good control a the net but has a slight delay when playing kills, and I detect a catapult effect which can be tricky when you want to maneuver your opponents with drives
    I enjoy N7-2 much more when playing front court, top notch control and better reactivity than N9-2, but I have to admit that it it less powerful at the back…

    Well, I like my N9ii, it’s a powerful racket, it’s on the heavier side though, shame because I bought it before I found out I was more of a front court player in doubles, but despite it being a racket for the back, it is definitely no slouch at the front, albeit lacking some sharpness, but it’s quite nimble near the front. I find this racket to suit well with the Li-Ning no.1 string at 27x29 lbs

    I went to a few shop at mongkok, only Kin Yee has one tc75, it's the same racket right?

    Still really happy with my N9-II but I think I could cope with a little more stiffness… which racquet should I try?

    I own N7-ii and like it but the head weight distribution is diffferent hence different feeling
    Played with BS12 before, same stiffness than N9-II but less head heavy so plays slightly stiffer but really tricky to do winning smashes

    3D calibar 900B / N90IV seems perfect but haven’t seen any comparison with N9-II…

    Any help?

    You could try the turbocharging 75c, it’s basically just a stiffer N9ii

    For me N7ii feels much closer to N9ii than the heavier 75C.

    N7ii/TC70 is a slightly stiffer N9ii. They are very similar in all other aspects. Add 0.5 grams of power tape to a N7ii head and you will have a stiffer N9ii :)

    I bought the FHF edition, it feels amazing to use but it's such a beautiful racquet that I'm terrified I'll damage it every time I play with it.

    Is the FHF edition the same as the regular N9II/TC 75? If so I might consider getting a regular one. I read through this thread and someone mentioned that they thought the FHF edition was stiffer?

    Exact same racket as the regular versions of the N9II/TC75. Don't fall for the usual "but it's stiffer because there is a player's name on it!" nonsense.

    And I think it is time. On contrary I don't feel any ridge of sorts while i swipe over it by my nail. Still, should I be stringing it again??[​IMG]

    Weird ass paint chip. Maybe it's the picture composition. Looks as though the edge of got completely eaten somehow.. Otherwise if there truly isn't a hole there.. There's no crack signs yet so just try and string it again. If it's cracked internally there's nothing you can do at this point but find out lol.
