    And isn't it product-related that something with this specs target the group of advanced and strong players? A product need buyers, a company make a product for a target group...right? Nobody gave here anybody an advice. This product is simply not meant for anybody according to the specs which are attributes of the product. Makes sense?;)

    After watching 2 Japanese Astrox 100ZZ review
    Heres the conclusion
    One reviewer (Bad tetsu) say he prefer 100ZZ for both singles and doubles than 88D + he choose 100ZZ over 99 for singles
    Has a bit of different feel therefore need an adaptation
    Does mention about tired shoulder something but google translate :rolleyes:
    Shaft stiffness VTZFII > 100ZZ > 99

    One other talk about how Astrox 99 is more of a one shot kill kinda racket, and 100ZZ is more towards repeating the smashes, faster and feel good to hold, also quite fast for drive

    Overall i think it does get a positive review, mainly on being quite fast, powerful and has a good solid feeling to use, hope theres someone who understand japanese can explain the review better than me :D
    Watching the reviews does make me want to cop it tho :rolleyes:

    I have a feeling it will be less demanding than the zf2. A compact head with a flexier shaft.

    Design wise the only positive thing from 100ZZ ZX is matte finish
    How much does the ZX Cost?

    This candy twirl is really disgusting and a joke. The orange part is the only thing which is okay. They should have made it black with one additional colour or two which fit well. Green-orange and blue-Orange dont't fit well at these tones. If they shifted the blue more towards cyan and the green more towards an acid green and left the white for a Peter Gade signature it had turn out much greater. This is Yonex with the Talbot Schrotto Swag.

    Seriously though, I kinda like the swirl on the shaft but the rest is just like a Victor sponsored Aquaman Marvel movie racket.

    For the ZX, is the racket a top model Made in Japan? Or is it mid range

    ZX is made in Taiwan and rumor has it that the shaft is made in Japan.
