    Watching Poison Cobra's video, he says that the rackets are half matte finish, half glossy finish.

    Also, the ZW will have the shaft made in Japan, and the head made in Taiwan while the ZZ will be made completely in Japan.

    So does he say it's compact frame or not? Have we settled on this yet?

    He compared with ax99 and said it’s slightly elongated one to have a better sweetspot

    Eh I thought the provided graphics clarified that. What I understand from this so far is that it isn't a compact frame but a regular iso that's been fed much bacon.

    Hi,
    I'm in Bangalore, India....Should i wait for Astrox 100zz or should I go ahead and buy ax99 (both 4u). Is it worth waiting for a few months? When will the Astrox 100zz hit the stores?

    will it be IN-STORE?? If it will be in store on March 20th, i'll definitely wait for the 100zz.

    I'm just confused if the release date means it will come to stores like 1 month later

    I normally buy my rackets from here.

    I think it is clickbait for getting memberships. I personally think that such a Yonex fanboy like him, who get 2 rackets before releasedate won't say any negative word. It will be more like "Oh now I have 2 Astrox 100 and I'm broke"

    Or "I broke the strings on the AX100 within a day." I would wait for a different source than a review from poison "I ride the YY d**k" cobra.

    may be it is only me, but the head looks so oval (starting from 3 and 9 o'clock), especially in real pictures. so it seems to be way more suitable for singles...

    Could be an optical illusion as a result of the asymmetry and the different head shape.

    Pun intended?;) He has some reach via social media. But I don't get why he got them and not club rackets, racket reviews or juicy Paul?

    May be cause he projects himself as an upcoming/aspiring/yet-tobe precessional player.

    Also may be people like his kiddish shi*t, I get annoyed by that.
