now all i need is a true head heavy racket, something similar to the yonex z force 2. looking at the gosen gravitas 8.0 for now.. hmm hmm

in case anyone wondering, both my apacs are strung with fleet powertech nano 80 @ 26lbs, my yosen bg80 @ 27lbs, mizuno bg65 @25lbs

i was thinking of 24lbs on the mizuno but decided to go for 25 because 24 would be too bouncy to my liking. will give impressions once i have more play time with it biggrin.gif

also if anyone has experience with gosens please do chip in!

U want racket that almost similiar to voltric zforce 2? Try voltric force vt-f. Thats the only same brand racket tat is near to zforce 2 in comparison. Same design n patern, same compact frame. Only different vtf is stiff, vzf2 is extra stiff and different in technology i guess. U may check on yonex racket chart u will suprise see this mid-end votric force actually on par with high-end zforce 2. And im a voltric force user hahaha. It can deliver powerful smash honestly, if ur smash timing cun teknik right then it goes booommmmm. Backhand is effortless. Giv it a try. I got 2 voltric force, 1 is original dark color(which i bough quite long ago), and another 1 voltric force lcw dark pink color which i just bought from sunriseclick this week for just rm109.90 after discount from rm252. String advice on vtf 20-26lbs. String it wif bg66 ultimax 25-26...fuhhh demmm nice. I used kizuna string once and it quite a good string too, can say almost same as ultimax, sound are so good too. Diff kizuna .63mm and ultimax .65. Oh ya and i play wif aerosonic string b4 also n really good string but careful cos aerosonic .61mm. Try voltric force. Cheer.

Sunriseclick doin big sales now guys. 65% discount. But may still not cheap for some.
For beginner player i recommend yonex for sure and go for even balance racket if u not into smashing type of player. Got for head heavy if u are heavy smasher player. Usually experience player said, use heavy racket if just start play so that ur wrist n arm can get stronger, but not too heavy, depends on ur own strenght. Slightly head heavy racket is ok. Once u use yonex racket, u will always go for yonex, like me. Lols. Its like addictive.

Badminton shoes? Lols. For my experience, example asics, if u buy asics that price at rm200+, and u play 2-3 times a week, it only last u 1 year plus, 2 if lucky. Unless u got for rm300 above til rm500 like gel blade and gel blast it can last for 3-4 years. Unless u play like LinDan n LCW it will last 2 yrs lols. Can say now a day any brand u have to buy shoe that is above rm300 to get long lasting quality. Yonex rm500 shoe, once u wear it u will never regret. Mizuno well known to be lasting n high quality shoe also, but not cheap.

Shuttlecock? Ermm i budget type of player lar lols. Only using rsl gold and rsl classic (black). For my experience, this shuttlecock is like depend on ur luck. Few time i kena, example rsl gold, sometimes i got the one tat can last for 1 n half game per shuttle. Sometimes 1 game need to change 3 5 times. Same goes to rsl classic, but rarely classic can change til 3 times for my type of game. Usually 1-2, sometimes 1 shuttle can last for 1 game. I play double, placing n smashing. Pasang dan tembak strategy lols. Other brand shuttlecock beside yonex n rsl, i never try yet. So can u guys suggest any other good brand n good shuttlecock tat is cheaper than rsl? Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I am looking for a racket that has similar characteristics as Fleet 3K Woven Ti 1:
1. Weight: 3U (86-88g)
2. Head heavy: BP 297 +/- 3 mm
3. Max tension: 38 lbs
4. Flexibility: Medium

Bought it in 2013, became my favorite racket ever since.

Tried to change racket twice:

2016: bought Voltric Z-Force.
Could not play with it longer than 3 matches.
The stiffness of the shaft requires stronger arm and wrist.

2019: bough Astrox 77
I feel the racket is a little bit too heavy for me, despite it being 4U.
My response was slow and inaccurate, especially in front of net.

I end up sticking with 3K Woven Ti 1. Haha.

Appreciate your suggestion/ advice.
Thank you.
*
Cant really help cos i never try any fleet racket b4 but i know fleet woven 3k hav alot version right? 3k 1 to 3k 10.
Get a even balance racket if u cant handle head heavy racket. Or maybe get slightly head heavy racket. Both zforce(extra stiff) and ax77(medium) are more to head heavy racket.
Stiff + head heavy may cause abit of wrist, arm and shoulder pain if u not use to stiff + head heavy racket. I guess u need to look for medium shaft racket with slightly head heavy as your fleet woven 3k 1.
If u want yonex racket, look for similiar spec as ur fleet. Astrox and voltric are head heavy series. U may try arcsaber, nanoray or duora series where u can find even balance to slightly head heavy and medium to stiff flex racket there.
U can try arcsaber 10 or 11, nanoray z-speed or duora 10. But stiff(not as stiff as zf) racket and slightly head heavy.

Yes, sir.
3k Woven has 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 10.

Unfortunately, all have been discontinued.

Found a seller in Lazada who got 3k Woven 3, 5, 7 and 9, but no one has bought the racket from him/her until now, therefore there's no rating/review, so I'm a lil bit hesitated to buy.

And Fleet changes its name to Felet.

I seriously think Fleet sounds more cool.
*
If like u have no choice but find other model either in fleet brand itself or others. Rsl, gosen, apacs, yonex, lining.

Yah fleet sound better than felet. Felet sound like fish filletπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Any overgrip that's thicker and more durable than the yonex Ac102 overgrip?
*
Me i more like karakal pu super grip.
For sure thicker than ac 102.
Ac 102 is thin type. Yonex ac420 thick type. So u try yonex ac420.

Yeah. Also considering getting a thicker replacement grip as I understood that for an attacking game (mostly smashing) a bigger grip is more desirable.

Anyway, I restrung my Duora 7 with the Aerosonic 0.61mm string!! Very curious to see how it feels and sounds like brows.gif
*
Aerosonic string very nice n crispy sound. Performance almost same like bg66um. Ive played wif both string b4. Both hav good repulsion n nice for smashing. And yahhh both thin string n easy to snap, especially aerosonic if pull high tension. Personally i still prefer bg66um .65mm.

1 is over grip... the other one is replacement grip...

sometime people sayang to take out the ori grip hence using only overgrip....

no ori grip = 40% drop in price...  laugh.gif  whistling.gif
*
I just take off the original grip and replace wif sellotape onlyπŸ˜‚
After that then i apply overgrip.
After long time the original grip will rosak oso.and need to be remove. Sellotape not bad n tahan for 1-2 yrs.

Apply sellotape on and then overgrip. If using overgrip tat comes wif adhesive tape on it, will be easier to take off the nextime u wanna change overgrip again. It easy and doesnt stick on the sellotape surface.

Too far away, unless he put more efforts training, more focus & more discipline like LCW. I watched live at Celcom Axiata during Perodua Malaysia Master, LZJ no where can fight Momota, second set can see Momota gave some face to allow LZJ gets more points, furthermore Momota was not in good shape, imagine that.
*
I notice the way LZJ play like abit keras compare to LCW. I mean his movement. Still far away for him to win againts Momota. Momota if he really good shape and really on form, LZJ might get beaten under 10. Lols.

I never use yonex shoe but i know from friends yonex if u buy below rm300 one memang not yet so good, after 1 half-2 yrs mmg rosak. At least rm400-500 and above then very very good the cushion n tahan lama. Same as asics. I ever used asics gel rocket n gel squad before, which cost around rm260, last me 2 yrs then rosak. But when i bought gel blade rm500+ can last 3-4 yrs then it rosak. Rosak pun the body koyak2πŸ˜‚
