    I'm on the same string and tension, and its been a roller coaster ride. Crazy power at times during a whole game, then so dull during another had to switch to a thicker string.

    With the initial NBG98 it was a joy but the string cost double.

    The racquet is more demanding than originally thought. Well they do say with age you need to reduce tension or get a lighter racquet.

    Yeah, I finally got a chance to try out the racket and it's pretty weird cause i'm used to extra stiff and stiff rackets so it took me a while to adjust. The head weight is also a bit heavier than what I expected so I have to get muscular :D. But on a good note, smashes were actually really nice, even off centre hits were sharp and fast.

    Black nail polish blends in perfectly with the parts that have the black paintjob

    I am using TK6000 4U with Zymax 65 and 25 x 27 pounds. Anyone experienced vibration with this racket? Also, I am not sure if it is due to my techniques. I started to have mild tennis elbow but I never have any problem when I was playing VT80 4U. My thought is mid stiff shaft is less demanding for the arm. I have been playing with it for almost 3 months and loving it.

    By far n large, the opposite should apply, that is mid-stiff racket should b gentler for the racket arm than a stiff one.

    What's the string n the tension used on ur 4u VT80? Both rackets by same stringer?

    That's my thought too. I do feel the racket vibrates a little when hard smashing or it just me? I always strung my VT80 with Lining AS62+ @27lbs. The stringers were different but does it make that much of difference? Next, I am going to string K6000 with AS62+ and I will know. Another possible reason I think could be I'm using more of my wrist with K6000 than VT80. Except for the tennis elbow, I am really having a lot of fun with K6000.

    Diff stringers, stringing machine, strings, tension n rackets r "the usual suspects" (gosh, I luv that movie).

    But my guess is the transition frm VT80 to TK-6ooo affected ur swing techniques n thereby affecting ur elbow. I've experienced tennis elbow n know that it could hurt. For me, to avoid it is to follow thru ur swing after the string bed has made contact with the birdie. Just my two cents...

    Is this racket really medium stiff? Is it as stiff as the Brave Sword 12 or it's stiffer?
