    I definitely gonna get a 4U instead of a 3U. 3U is just too sluggish for my doubles games.
    For my normal game pace, the difference in speed between a 4U head heavy and 3U head light is marginal. Objectively speaking, if your games in general are fast paced, the disadvantages of 100zz will show itself pretty soon. With that being said, 100zz is made to suit both doubles and singles alike, it has qualities that help in doubles despite its head balance that rivals the AX99.
    Also, 100zz has a completely different hitting feel compared to NF800, a lower thump.

    Hi jctai. How about the shaft stiffness compared to zf2, arc11, ax88d & nf800?

    What do you mean beefier than AX88D? Heavier? Is it more head heavy?

    For me, they are all more or less the same except ARC11 is slightly flexier and NF800 is slightly stiffer.

    As in the frame cross section has a large area or simply, it is thicker. 100zz doesn't feel as head heavy as 88D, I didn't have time to compare their balance point.

    When doing this comparison do you hold rackets at end of handle or at the cone?

    Always held at around 5cm from the bottom of the handle. Rarely change hold position unless serving. I doubt this information will serve you any good.

    Thanks. Good info and consistent comparison for me since I do the same. Someone who holds at the cone and does reviews on rackets will not apply for me.

    I have a friend that owns a baddy hall and the racket came early. So I got one immediately to play with. At least I had 4-5 games to play.

    Yeah..well it sold out on that day it self (2 3u and 2 4u) so I could not get a replacement or try the 4u. This racket will be a fun racket to play with. I think this racket will sell well.
