    I hope AX99LCW 4u will have a more significant head weight than the existing batch. The existing 4u batch is like an entirely different racket from the 3u.

    What? YY had too much green paint leftover in their storage? Woulda been much better with a more unique colour... purple, aqua, blue, even pink!

    Yeah no kidding. I'd pay extra for that. Something very clean but extravagant. Maybe a rethink of the entire paintjob keeping the half and half distribution but just cleaning everything up.

    Does anyone know, the new Axtrox 99 is different from the old one? the new one is more friendly than the old one, is it true?

    but why is my new one more comfortable than the old one? (same colour : orange) the new one is more like 88d, not too headheavy like the old one...

    Some people have suggested that yonex made it easier to use by reducing the bp

    Ugh I'm sorry but that colourway is so boring the more I see it.

    I was so confused when I picked up my friends duora 10 when I had been using my duora 10 lcw and the default one was so much heavier despite my lcw was a 3U, is it head heavier or something?

    yes i can attest to this and my experience was similar-- only with the frosty blue duo10 LCW (pink).
    have not tried the jewel blue (newer) iteration

    swing weight on duo10lcw frosty blue felt noticeably less than general release (both oranges). i felt the orange duo10 was unwieldy

    Hardly. Not taking anything away from your skills. Just personal experience that differs
