    Generally most high-end rackets can handle up to 30-32 lbs. They just suggest against it for warranty purposes as well as high tensions do make your racket head more fragile. However experienced stringers + quality racket can easily be done to 27lbs, just try not to clash :p

    High end rackets can easily handle 27lbs, most are good up to 30, a good portion of those to 33 or 35 even. The more fragile Yonex models I don't like to string higher than 30 (ArcFB, Z-Slash, i-Slash), while Braveswords are an issue from 31/32 on. N-Series Li Ning and Voltrics are super solid, no problem at 32, and even took 35 in stride.

    Just came back from Topline... Duoforce has landed! :)

    Feels quite stiff, a tad more so than APP. Frame shape looks exactly like APP. Will have to take out a demo to try.

    I don't think the shaft is tapered though. Let me know how it feels and plays. If it's anything like the APP or the XP70, I would like to try one as well....

    If you ultimately cannot find it locally.

    I know Topline Sports is opening up their online Website by the end of this month.

    I just received my initial Adidas stock including the APP and the Duoforce. So there is now a retailer in the extreme west and extreme east of the country :p

    I haven't had the chance to try any rackets yet, but I do have an APP waiting for me to string it and play!

    Here's what's available for now:

    I do plan on stocking adidas shoes, mainly the Feather, but maybe the other ones depending on the feedback/prices/etc. They aren't available yet though :(

    I got myself a Precision 88 yesterday with Adipower string and Yonex overgrip. It feels..... wow. Something like an Arcsaber 11, but much better.

    Might try the Zeros and Power next time.
