    According to the pdf image of AX100ZZ the frame is a full sized frame because the compact frames are much more narrower from the sides and this has the looks of a normal frame so I can confirm that it is not compact frame

    Seems like a compact frame, reminds me of the VT10DG blue colorway for some reason

    To me, it looks like a compact frame that has been stretched, wider and flatter top to increase the sweet spot size. Kinda confirmed by Yonex page assuming the translation is correct.

    Nothing about this makes me want to try it. Leave it for the super-humans, fanbois and anybody desperate to injure themselves - they should try BG80 at 35lbs to do some real damage

    Not sure if it's compact frame or not. Unless Yonex break its tradition where the Z series were all compact frame. But it did state that the 100zz is 10mm longer. Probably same length as AX 99 but the top of the frame were designed to be more squarerish instead of oval to increase the sweet spot area. I'm a compact frame user from Zslash to zf2 to Zspeed and Z strike.. from the video review by the Japanese guy looks like it's wider from the bottom part and top part of the frame vs ax99 but slimmer / thinner on the side.

    Let's not rush to just crap all over it. Right now this looks similar to the ZFII but slightly slower and/or less power and a little more forgiving. I suspect it's not the first choice for doubles players but it looks pretty good for singles.

    Those Japanese players are quite strong and probably know what they are talking about, if only I knew Japanese.

    Why is this endorsed by Axelsen? He has never been into super head heavy racquets, and according to the matrix this is like the successor to zf2. Why would he use it when he's always liked more even balanced racquets like arc11 and dzs...
