    Taking blue ones make everything stiff. Regardless if MD, XD or MS. ;)

    I have weighted the Yellow vs the Blue. Consistently different of 2gram lighter for Blue. Not sure about stiffer.

    Agreed.
    I have made comparison between my 4U yellow AX77 and my friend's 4U blue AX77. Similar setup with overgrip and Yonex Ultimax. Both of us agreed that my yellow AX77 felt heavier on hand. That's our simple observation.

    One of my mates using a yellow 4U gives a thunderous sound on whack whenever he brings it down compared to my 3U blue.

    That, or I suck and need to hit the gym soon LOL

    I would gravitate towards the thought of he jive better with his racket if both of you have the same physique. You should test his yellow 4U, maybe it would suit you better than your own blue 3U.

    Astrox77 (blue 4ug5, bg66U, ac102ex over original grip)
    Total weight - 90 gram.

    Balance - definitely feels the weight towards the head.
    Sweet spot - Very large, no mishit problem.

    Smash - Powerful n steep (sometimes too steep, had to adjust).
    Defence - Fast, great clears.

    Overhead - Easy clears to back court.
    Drives - A bit slow during fast drives, due to head weight.

    Net - A little wrist flick needed.
    Dropshot - Very tight and on-point accuracy.

    Overall, after 3 nights of playing, i feel this is an excellent purchase for me.
    Need to learn more about playing with HH, as i use even balance before.
    This racket flex is what suprise me the most. Enough flex at back court, but feels stiffer when at front court. Maybe thats the new technology.

    Yes, better if u already used to HH racket. If not (like me), it will need some learning, but i believe i will get there.

    A lot of people told me 4u ax77 is heavier and less maneuverable than 3u zsp..so u think 4u ax77 blue is ok for me? how about 4u ax77 yellow?

    Considering that the ZSP frame is basically a Voltric with Armortec channel at the top... I'm not sure where those who say that are coming from.

    If you can comfortably use a 3U ZSP I can't imagine any racquet giving you weight issues except for something like 3U zf2. Shouldn't be an issue.

    A 3u ZSP is harder to use than yellow 3u Astrox77, so I dont think there is any problem in 4u no matter blue or yellow if your main is 3u ZSP.
