    The only difference between Ti-10R and Ti-10 Long is 10mm.

    I think I'm switching back to Ti-10 from MP-99 now that I'm starting to use the Ti-10 again. I like the feel a lot, even more so than before. Even though it is a 2U which is heavier than my MP-99s that are mostly 3Us, it is not much slower yet giving me a little more power on my smashes. I used to get shoulder pain when I was using the 2U MP-100 and 2U ISO-800 Tour so I thought I am not suited for 2Us at all. However, after two sessions (2-3 hours each) of using the 2U Ti-10, I did not get sore at all. Maybe I didn't play at my full potential with the Ti-10 but I feel sore (general muscle sore all over) the next day when using the 3U MP-99s. I think it is due to the fact that I have to swing faster/harder since they are 3U racquets. I think I'm going to try to play much as 5-6 hours a few more sessions like when I do with the MP-99s and if I don't get sore as much as with the MP-99, I'll grab a few more Ti-10s. I really hate to leave my family of MP-99s in storage though.

    Yeah, so just because you don't like a specific weight of a racquet doesn't mean you should elimate the other racquets of that weight for you may find that it suits you better like in my case. I play doubles most of the time unless there are not enough people for a match, in which case I will just do drills or singles, so I thought the 3U MP-99 would be better for me than the 2U Ti-10. The Ti-10 just feels right with the right amount of stiffness and head-heaviness. I wonder if I will get the same result with the 2U MP-99 CP which still needs to be strung.

    I love my Ti-10. I have MP-77 (1), Cab30MS (2), NS8000 (1) and TI-10 (1). I have 2 more Ti-10 in the group order initiated by bluejeff. Ti-10 is by far the most powerful racquet I have played and once I played I can't leave it along. My favorite is definitely Ti-10.

    You can equate a Ti 10 to the 44 Magnum pistol that packs a wallop but takes time to get used to. In my case, it took me about 3 weeks. However, once you've learned to play with the Ti 10, you'll simply fall in love with it - HARD. Other racquets will not easily measure up to a Ti10.

    Wow, are you dirty Harry :D ? I agree that Ti-10 is an exquisite piece of badminton equipment at a standard other racquets are measured against.

    with new rackets like mp series and nano series...ti10 is getting really old but i still love it!!!

    Ti10 is really a steal these days, w new ones going for S$160 w strings. many who borrowed my racket when their strign broke all surprised by Ti10's power.

    now there are at least 4 who have switch to ti10 after trying it. good rackets dont need advertising, just let them try...:D:D:D

    Love the Ti10. The older Cabs and the Ti10 are my favorite Yonex rackets.

    I tried the TI-10 not a long time ago and loved so much that i got one just for heck of it :p I'm using my AT800OFF most of the time but using the Ti-10 from time to time is quite fun

    Yes, I dropped the 2U Ti10 for the AT800-OF, then NS8000 then SOTX Woven 8 and 9. The reasons why:

    2U Ti10: great attacking racket but defense is weak, relatively speaking. Also as I play more advanced players, they attack faster and I need a more mobile racket.

    4U AT800-OF: durability problems, chipping, cracks, handle comes loose or breaks.

    3U NS8000: not as stable nor as powerful as the SOTX Woven rackets.

    SOTX: Woven 9 for me is the ideal balance between attacking and defense. If I need more defense, I go with the Woven 8. If I need more offense, I go with the Woven 7.

    have you tried the 3u version. i started w 3u version, loved it then bought the 2u version thinking that i can get more atteacking power. but i suffered in defense and though i try to get use to it, i can really feel the difference which switching in between the 2u and 3u version. maybe you ought to try the 3u version. MUCH better defensively i think. i sold my 2u after

    Yes, I had four 2Us and two 3Us. I agree with your findings. The 3U is better at defense but lacks power compared to the 2U.

    I'm using the SOTX Woven 7 now, which is as powerful if not more powerful than my 2U Ti10s. The defense of the Woven 7 is like the 2U Ti10, weaker (relatively speaking) but I'm adapting... :D

    Finally! My own Ti-10

    FINALLY! Yes!. After 2 months of hard work finding Ti-10 (it's quite rare nowadays), I got my ti-10 today :D . I strung it at 24Ibs, BG66.

    I'm the kind of player who smash like noone's business.
    I dun defend, defend=syntax error
    I just kill.:D "sRaIgHt tO dA fLoOr & bYe ByE"

    I dun care anything, the shuttle must come with feathers before touching the string and MUST leave the strings without feathers.:cool:

    As long I dun destroy any shuttles, I dun go home.:D

    And Ti-10 did it just what I wanted, for so many years.
    Will never buy any other racquet than this.
    But only thing,too powerful it is. Hard to control, it can be.
    More training and discipline I need for me, to control this powerful baby ....
    Much much more for me learn from this racquet...

    Uhhhhh, congrats on getting the racket but how can you not defend and only attack? That "unpossible". What if the opponents drop on you or push the shuttle back deep? How can you always attack?

    That's why I rarely win ... :cool:, I play badminton purely on leisure, not for winning.But now, I'm learning slowly to defend and etc.
    But I just love smashing,I guess everyone loves smashing too... :D
