    Based on the some reviews on internet/youtube people say

    I used DZS a lot , but it was fatiguing after 3-4 sets of instance play. For me ZF2 was easier than DZS for the same level of play ( i.e. 3-4 non-stop instance double play ) . I am 3U user but I used to use 4U ZF2 when opponent was attacking / heavy smasher and ZF2 4U was easier than 3U DZS . DZS is amazing all round racket though.

    Is it true ?
    100ZZ is more easier on arm/less fatiguing than > ZF2 => DZS

    How many people experienced it ?

    DZS feels lighter than 100ZZ , both 3U
    In 100ZZ you can feet a bit of weight on its head, both swing pretty fast, but i do think DZS is faster
    But DZS compact frame does make it a little bit harder to adapt, but if you come from vtzf i guess it wont matter
    So i think overall 100ZZ is more user friendly and easier to use, but since it feels heavier it is also more tiring to use than DZS

    No one can answer you as you are very confusing because you're not consistent in specifying whether you're referring to 3U or 4U versions.

    Well you know, i think actually only you can decide which racket is the best for you
    Everyone is different, preference, skill, physical abilities, biomechanics, and most importantly is what kind of rackets that you used to or comfortable with
    I myself considered myself a "weak power" player but i find a stiff racket suit me better than flex, also i prefer 3U than 4U, and even balanced racket, meanwhile i have a friend which got more power and strong smash prefer to go for 4U Med to Stiff racket
    But again this is a racket topic tho not some technique training lessons thing :D
    As you described, my playstyle is more or less same with you, and i rely a bit more on speed
    DZS and 100ZZ , DZS is faster-quicker and feels more solid, meanwhile 100ZZ packs more punch and feels heavier and i do think its more tiring, also theres a bit of shuttle hold on 100ZZ
    Also adapting to DZS is harder and it is quite unforgiving because its compact frame, but playing some sessions you'll be fine
    Lastly if you are a player that flipping/turning around your racket a lot while playing and worrying too much about forehand backhand side of duora, dont buy this racket as it will only disturb you while playing thinking this or that
    Best thing is find a friend and borrow/test the racket and feel it yourself, although if you've tested it i doubt you'll be asking here tho :D

    With today situation, i can only imagine how someone review a racket when being asked for.

    Drive shot agains the wall is good.

    Going out of the house an outdoor area to get more space....

    Control not to good as when i want to put on the left, the shuttle fly to the right.:(

    Clear is really really hard coz whenever i try to clear hit, the shuttle always come back to me:confused:

    Smash is totally hard. Its very hard to time my smash to get the best hit, miss hit alot with it..:eek:

    Its not a userfriendly racket at all. Very hard to use...

    :Dwind blow the shuttle & ruin everything:p

    Well some people can still play, also some people can share a review from their experience before this covid-19 happen i think
    But if they dont even use it on court and play full session then .....

    Do y’all string the racket over the recommended tension for the 4u version? Any experiences stringing yonex 4u rackets at 30 etc???

    Super interested on the noteable diff btw your ldf and 100zz feel wise, am also looking to transition into the 100zz from the ldf once this lockdown thing ends. TIA!
