    Ok after using the AN9000C for good 10+ sessions (and hopefully after getting in form) , I would like to give my review (a short one at that)
    1. No issues in defence
    2. It is stiffer than the N9II
    3. Power is still easily accessible even with such a balance, Surely powerful than my N7II
    4. Best paintjob ever

    This is my new found love

    So, is it too stiff then? Or have you tried lower tension?

    Sorry brother, never used it, hence cannot compare, I can just suggest every N7II user to try the AN9000C you will love it.

    Perfect, I use tc70 and just ordered 9000C!
    Tc70 is just a little too stiff to be great for me for too long

    my AN7000B broke after someone stepped on it in game and it cracked and i ended up buying AN7000C

    Nothing can really compare to the feel of aeronaut's chunky head. Somehow it gives that shuttle hold feeling while still being plenty fast

    I wondering more and more why there are so few reviews or feedback regarding the Tectonics. So many pros have switch over to them, but they don't seem to really get the same attention from the normal players or what?

    I think people still gravitate to heavy, stiff racquets regardless of if pros are even using them.

    I tried a few tectonic racquets and I just can't bring myself to prefer them even though the specs should be perfect for me. It just doesn't have the same feel as the caliber frame to me I guess.

    If you shop from Racquetforce, how long does it take to get to Europe (in normal times)? How's taxes and custom fees?

    I can only tell how it works in Germany:
    Shipping only takes a couple of days. However, in case they declare the correct value in the customs declaration on the package (which is what they will do!) and the value is above 22 EUR (inkl. shipping costs), then you will have to pay 19% import tax. Customs charges (I think it's 1,5% for badminton rackets) will apply on top of that for packages over 150 EUR.

    And that what takes some time. So the customs office will take the package intor their custody and write you a letter to inform you about the package. You have to go there in person to pay tax/customs fee and you can take it home. However, there are several manufacturers who have banned imports from Asia (hello Victor!), so if you customs officer has a bad day, he/she might simply refuse to hand out the racket and instead you could choose to have it sent back (on your costs) or have it destroyed (free of charge... :rolleyes:).

    If you want to have it easy and comfortable, then I can highly recommend to order it through e78.us. They offer the shipping option "Speedpost" which at first glance is very expensive, but the listed shipping costs already include the import tax.
    So it's the carrier who takes care of the due tax/customs and you will get the package shipped directly at your door within 4-5 working days. I have done this myself several times and know other who did too - has worked fine every single time.

    With both options, you will end up with a less attractive total price and in the range of normal racket prices in Europe. So it only makes sense to go that way if you're hunting for rare or unavailable rackets in Europe.

    And if you would ask racquetforce not to declear the value at all? It is not like asking to declare false value :) the only problem if it gets lost/stolen on the way, you would loose the money
