    thruster bxr, its head not that compact as 88 astroxes but not as big as auraspeeds and tkfe, head heavy and stiff so very powerful, and at the same time very suitable for fast paced doubles

    Ehm excuse me sorry for being a total thread destroyer but I would not at all say that 90k is anywhere close to a 88D. In fact, 90K is way head light.

    I have been on a quest similar to op recently as I have been reserching a racket for my girlfriend. From the Victor lineup, I have heard that the Ryuga 2 is supposed to be ”halfway between a 88D and an 88S in terms of head heavyness”.

    From what I understand, this how some of the Victor rackets line up in terms of being similar to the 88D from top to down:

    88D pro
    Ryuga2
    TKF
    90K

    Please feel free to add the other rackets to my little list. It actually took two weeks for me to learn that the Ryuga2 is the closest thing to the 88D from the threads on here so please dont bully me as I am quite proud of this accomplishment.

    I have been eyeing on this from long time. I currently use 88D pro and TKFE both in 4U. TKFE slightly lacks in power and smash department so looking for alternatives. I don't like crazy stiff racquets, if you have played with 88d pro or TKFE can you compare bxr stiffness?

    bxr is much faster than tkfe, for me it plays stiffer I would say that it should be really close stiffness wise to 88d original color, so it offers just outstanding control, then the power dew to stiffness and hh balance is just amazing, but it is a bit demanding
