    Using the measurement of racquet force, will the new 88s 4u play differently than the old version?

    correction: only 68D that is posted.

    you can search on Facebook "shuttler shop". not sure if I can post a link here.

    Can't judge if it's genuine or fake.

    Already try new 88D 4U5
    Compare to old 4U5 with same string and same tension
    My old one 85.2 gram.. New 85.6 gram
    New one feel a bit stiffer, output power is almost same. Control and accuracy same too.
    For strong wrist player maybe the new one is better.
    But old one is also superior.
    For me i like new colour, feel more sporty and exclusive.
    If you have the old one.. Maybe not really need to upgrade to new,is not better than old. Just same racket with very minor change
