    Yes lets go!!

    I think that the Astrox 99 is too head heavy and causes burnout and depression.

    I know a 50-year-old female player at my club that plays the Astrox 99. She is not burnt out or depressed. :D

    How good is she and how effective is she at wielding that thing? I still am of the opinion that the 88D is where the head heaviness line should be set. I think that its hard to be consistent with anything above that.

    In my hometown, a women just bought Astrox 99 pro the last few days.

    I have to admit that all women in the world can play any racket that they want, because they just hit the shuttle like hitting balloon.

    They don't know how to smash, especially a really strong smash.

    Guys, I was just joking. She a complete beginner that doesn't notice any difference, only standing at the net, never hitting clears let alone smashes. I just find the notion that Momota's game suffered due to his racket choice absurd.

    He's just experiencing PTSD and midlife crisis, no big deal guys. Definitely just the racket that he picked himself. :eek:

    It's remarkable how people time and time again fall for these absurd and obvious attempts at trolling.

    In a clown world like this you never know if it's actually obvious trolling or if they are being serious.

    Wait for formal information.

    I didn't see this news, just a paper which cannot confirm the news

    @Schultzier

    Sorry for that delayed response.

    Ok - well it depends - if you are a doubles player focused at the back then a head heavy racket is a blessing. Although the only super head heavy racket I used is the VZF2. But it is different from the AX99 since it has the smaller head making it more aero. So maybe this is what is making me like it.

    Although - I quickly got rid of it for singles.

    I found my nice balance which is the AX88D for both doubles and singles.

    But Momota was amazing with the AX88D and the VZF2

    Just read an article that Kento Momota will be retiring soon. Anyone can confirm this for me?
