    I do have strong arms but not good technique :(

    Sad to say. But 3u ax88s vs 3u ax88d the difference is big?

    Currently mizuno altius tour Japan. I bought a 4u ax88d before but somehow I'm not used to the headheaviness and stiffness I guess. But I saw the chart that ax88s is less stiff that's why I'm looking at going for ax88s 3u.

    I suggest you go try aeronaut 7000b, the same spec with 88s with less heavy and less stiff

    Whats the deal that ur getting for the turbocharging all the 3 mentioned rackets are great rackets. TC series are very fast indeed. I have the turbocharging 08c, 50d they are very quick for doubles indeed. If u can get the 70/75 anywhere close to $140 or $150 (US dollar or 10k INR) . Its a steal go grab it.

    I’m getting the tc series for 9k inr , I know it’s a steal, I’m confused which one to pick 75 d or 75 c , I felt the 75 d to be head light n the 75c was on par with zf2 4u which I already use. . Even the victor jet speed n auraspeed r at 10 k . I’m really confused . Should I look at li ning or victor ?

    9k inr?? Which part of India are u in?? U will never repent buying lining. If ur only back court player get the 75c. If u love to come front and go back then 75d..

    See the spec here..

    Yes u can provided u swing a little harder. Okay Each racket designed for specific use it depends on how you play for example for lighter rackets you will have to swing harder for a heavier rackets you need more technique than swing. The turbo charging serious that you’re talking about is the high-end leaning racket serious

    u said abt 9k inr for the price? I thought u are from India

    Yes this racket is more of a front court for player than back court player. Still it has more potential to give a devastating smash but depends on who’s playing and with the racket

    Great then I recommend you buy both the rackets 70 and 75. It will be a weapon in your hand

    Well it’s a tough choice between 70 and 75. 75 is more like an all-rounder for singles and doubles 70 is more like doubles racket. You rule the front court with 70 And if you’re occasionally going back. With 75 If you are occasionally coming front
