    Hi everyone!

    Im confused about the differences between the original Thruster F (Black and Blue) vs the newer Thruster F enhanced (black and gold)

    they both look identical (bar the colour) but with the enhanced having the free core plastic handle. Is that all the difference is?
    Is it worth to get the tkf enhanced? Over the original?
    Thanks

    I own TKF enhanced in 4U. I have never played with 1st gen TKF but what I read in here is 1st gen frame was weaker and use to break. So they came up with enhanced version with strong frame, free core tech and slightly stiffer shaft.

    The original blue one is head-heavy balance. The new enhanced one is even-balance.

    it is definitely not even balanced, but its head heaviness is toned down compared to blue, distributed more evenly, but BP still more than 300mm for sure

    Playing with it feel very close to balanced. The swing feel is not head-heavy which is properly why it is so popular.
