    Whatever anyone says, 100 ZZ 4U is not head heavy racket. It is ultra fast on drives and defense. It is between medium and heavy balance. I use it now for 5 months beside many other head heavy rackets, and 100ZZ is the lightest of all (ZF2 4U, 88D 4U, Kaw. King K9, Lining 9000 etc.) But you can put thungsten od lead tape to make it more head heavy but stil fast.

    Is that more head heavy than the 88d because most people i know say the 88d is more headheavy than 99 or 100z.

    I have the 100z and 88d and 88d is more head heavy i never had the 99 though.

    88d>99>100z

    1st batch 99 are very head heavy which makes it really unfriendly.
    On 2nd batch Yonex reduce it & makes it more or less equal to 88D & the different are on full namd material on 99.

    the astrox 99 in my view is not really suitable for doubles. It is a singles only racket compared to the 88 and 100 which can also be played for both. ( the pro series for 88 is honestly more suited for today's doubles game pace and play style)

    only the armortec 800 has off and def version. the 900 is Technique and power. which one are you actually talking about? 800 or 900 series?
