    Why not buy the same racket when you loved it?

    Nothing is close to zf2 3U. Your best bet is AX99 and that's really quite different still due to namd.

    Exactly, if you fall in love with a specific racket racket everything else is just a stopgap. The P8 is just maximum as head heavy as the 4U ZF when I trust @speCulatius measurements. The TK9900 was available in 3? very different MK over the years since I spotted it at the YGO used by Lee Sheng Mu. All were different, so not a safe bet for anything close, if the model itself is damn inconsistent on the market. 2U DZS could also be a stopgap, but honestly nothing plays like a Zforce.

    The TK9900 was available in 3U in Europe, not sure about other regions.

    The P8 is available in 3u and 4u but may not quite replace the extreme feel of the ZFii.

    What makes ZF2 so different to other rackets?

    If you want, wait a little bit more and check astrox 100zz when it is released

    TK9900 more flex, more forgiving on a mis-hit due to normal sized frame.
    Easier to use.

    ZF2 feels like it give me better control, provided if I play well of course. More satisfying experience.

    Zf2 3u I can only use it for singles... I'm too slow for it

    And forget the Mizuno JPX LTD. It is way less head heavy than a ZF2. It's in fact more in the even balance territory, despite what it says on the datasheet.
