    It's amazing to me how many people (myself included) long for a nanoray z speed that didn't end up sucking. Hahaha

    But the Z Speed is only a 4 stiffness at best. Certainly nowhere near the MX80's 5

    This is true. I also found the mx80 to be much lighter than others seemed to suggest it was.

    Which goes to show how important and magical is the feel of the racket to the player.

    MX80 really isn't that head heavy. That's part of what made it so hard to use. It had just enough head weight for you to access the shaft if you know or can do it.

    Check out the threads for those specific rackets. Lots of initial comparisons.

    The MX80 I found much better in 4U than 3U, oddly - other way around with most even-balanced stuff, including the MX90.

    To answer an earlier question, I have tested 3U Jetspeed 12. I've recorded a video to compare to Jetspeed 10 and a separate video as a mini review

    I was holding out for a thruster... But I haven't tried a HX yet. Are they similar in feel?

    Not really. I thought the 800 - the black one - was a bit numb, but I haven't tried the ones with Pyrofil and Hard-Core. Probably best to ask Paul and/or Ben.

    I tried the TK 8000 and thought it was the most fun racket I've ever played with. Too flexible, and a bit too head-heavy for me though. Ah well; if they don't release any good rackets, then I get to live cheap, right?

    AFAIK there will be a replacement but still named TK 9900.

    I tried the 8000 myself and found it too slow and bendy in 3U, but I bet it would have been loads better in 4U.

    In contrast, the 9900 is the most fun racket I have ever played with - I just love how utterly uncompromising it is:D. You play its way, not the other way around. Tried a lazy shot, have you? Be prepared to breathe through your forehead when the other guy buries it.

    Since this is the same way I feel, it makes me yearn for the 9900 even more :-/
    Or at least get to try it out...

    last I heard 9900 was arriving in Europe in September. However, i do not have any up-to-date information to confirm whether this is correct.

    Anyone tried out the lower-budget TK-15? It's sold out here in Switzerland and seems to be very popular. Although it rather looks cheap and ugly :D
