    TC80 looks amazing and actually the head heaviness is noticeable. Fast sword frame 4U racquet. It's just so damn expensive!

    Ive always preferred to order rackets unstrung and have my trusted local stringer string them for me for that reason (who knows what you're gonna get when you actually specify a tension when ordering).

    Gorgeous Tectonic 9 is almost here.

    Few interesting things LN is advertising/visible:
    Stiff-thin shaft
    Yonex/Victor style bottom grommets,
    Yonex style cap.

    Looks like Li Ning is tasting success with giftbox marketing.

    Great looks, as always. Will they really sell it in 3U, 4U and 5U? That would be a Li-Ning first afaik.

    Yes they are selling 3U, 4U, 5U this time, it will be printed on cone. This is clearly easier than C, D, I nomenclature.

    3U - 300mm BP
    4U - 305mm BP
    5U - 310mm BP
    I think this means they are reducing weight in the bottom of racket (handle etc).

    Chiristie used it in the only AE match he played. He looked in good touch in that match and I thought he can go far , pity what happened.

    Pity that LN is not having enough successful players to endorse rackets.

    Hi fellow Vietnamese, but I'll answer in English anyway.

    While one can still switch between the 2 without any difficulty, their characteristics are different.

    Tec7 has small head (almost as small as of zstrike and 100zz), medium flex shaft.
    Nanoflare 700 has much bigger head (I forgot the Yonex marketing name...) , and stiff shaft.

    For me, Tec7 would suit who does drop, lob, and not a lot of constant drives/smash, "placement type" player.
    The flex shaft does help with the feeling, but it feels harder to generate power when you do fast exchange (does not snap back quick enough maybe..?).
    Also, the small head is a minus on defense comparing with nanoflare 700.

    Nanoflare 700, on the other hand, is better at all corners except lobs and full swing smashes for it's a tad lighter than the tec7.
    However, considering the number of Nanoflare 700 I have (and have seen) broken, it's not a racket for someone on tight budget.

    Hope my 2 cents can help.
    Cheers

    Hi, thank for your comment! Your information helped me a lot.

    One of my reliable sellers said that Tectonic 7 and Flare 700 is so different. I hesitated a little and decided to come here to ask other people.

    I checked a lot of technical data of Flare 700 and Tectonic 7, and see it quite the same:

    Flare 700 vs Tectonic 7:
    Swing: 83 vs 84.5
    4U racket
    balance point: 295mm
    shaft: not so stiff (like z-speed or z-strike)

    But you showed me the whole picture when mention of big head and small head. That made me realize the difference between them.

    Wow, quite disappointed, I imagined that I can buy some Tectonic 7 rackets (quite cheap compared with Flare 700) and string it at 11kg or more. With Flare 700, I don't dare to string it at 11kg.
