    Price is going up as stock is being diminished since Mizuno stop producing it.

    That's why I just bought another for the collection just in case.

    I did feel some vibrations , is anyone strongly affected by it , or just heck care n just use it ? I love the solid feeling that it gives me , but comparing some of my other rackets which has no vibration , even just hitting the stringbed to palm , my wifey was quite disturbed by the TC700's vibration , it's so complicated...
    HELP!!!

    The racquet sucks at low tensions for me. At low tensions, it feels too numb and too demanding, no power but IMHO, it doesn't really vibrate much. Try it with bg65 at 29lbs -> feels more "alive".

    For a large part, the vibrations are caused by off-centre hits. I found the TC700 to be brutal in this aspect. The extra cross string and sub-iso frame both contribute to a tighter feel.

    66M is a bit expensive for tension experiments though :p. I'd rather use BG66 for that purpose.

    I was actually using BG66S for my Cab 30 and TC700 at 25lbs , but the result tension is so much different , the TC700 feels like 27lbs , it was too hard for me while my Cab 30 was playable after one session , so I feel that the quality is not consistant , I ever tried BG66M at 25lbs on my AT 700 , but it's also too tight , plus I dun enjoy playing with Nanogy 98 , too soft for me , and there was so much positive feedback and advice from our BC'ers here that BG66M is a very good string to play with , so if it still does not work , I will go back to BG66 Limited which works for me... Thanks everyone for ur advice...

    wow, someone is living my fantasy.

    some updates on the racquet. i managed only get a few warm up strokes on the TC700, strung at 26lbs with Zymax 62. All I can say is that it just SOLID, each whack gives me a boom sound and i hit a the bird on the frame once, it went "TING", almost sounds like metal.

    Aren't you going to beef up your 5 Greens to 10 as well;)? Might be the racket TH wielded against LCW underneath a fresh coat of paint:).

    *Ahem*. 5+1 green :p.

    At this rate, we can start a poll about the number of each racket everybody owns and I think the TC700 is going to win... I am seeing folks with 10-20 of the TC700.
