    Had a D10 dry swing earlier
    Orange box felt slower while green aero speedier and smoother
    Sth similar to NR900 but not as aerodynamic compare to BS12
    Man, this is too tempting :rolleyes:

    It's different from the NR900. Very. Feels stiffer but better head weight carriage by a lot. I just got it back qnd got a good look and feel of the frame. It's basically an arcsaber on the orange end and a nanoray on the other but the swing feels so much smoother than both somehow.

    So some little data points for my Duora 10. Measured everything with yellow BG80 @ 28/30lbs and original grip(plastic off) Weight came in at 91.98g. Head weight was 41.32g. BP was 302mm which is really nice since it doesn't feel anything close to that at all...

    Price is about the same as sunriseclick after stringing. But still cheaper for non Asian folks

    The specs are right up my alley and the racket looks gorgeous. I'd even consider buying one from MBS if I weren't a chronic "racket spinner".

    Tbh I really don't see the big hoo ha about racket spinning and this racket. It's fine if you do it between rallies. You probably might have a problem if you did it during. Plus yonex didn't brain fart in the design and made it very very clear which side was which in a glance. If you look down and see orange that means the backhand is the sharp side. If you see green then your backhand is the box side.

    Wow, I've literally skim read the thread but what I gathered is that the two sides are different. One is blockier and the other is more aerodynamic, but what is the overall racket balance? (e.g. Hh, even, Hl)

    God knows what Yonex will come up with next, maybe a three sided racket, a combo of arcsaber, voltric and nanoray maybe!

    It's a even balanced racket. Something along the lines of the NS9900 and ARC7 but a slight bit more.
