Thank you for the above, I wasn't aware that there were any defects that all.
You are correct is personal preference - from my experience, when you have a head light racket and try to force shots over technique it is less obvious you are damaging your joints with overextension. Compared to a head heavy racket where pain will tell you nearly straight away you are doing it wrong. Increased racket head speed from a racket requires more discipline to maintain (ie timing). It will also inclined to make you lazier on footwork because you can contort your arms in ways you're not supposed to. You can build muscles to compensate for this, but as mentioned imo; its more trouble than its worth. As for issues, its the same for present and previous - Don't have official documentation for the 99 and 'early' batch issues, can you imagine Yonex releasing that? (ninja) Hear it from sellers, obviously you need to know them well before they share this... Past examples would be the AT700, Nanotech 8000X (or whatever that used to be called), FB also had a short stint I think? I ventured onto other brands after those times so I wasn't paying attention to other models, until recently looking at 88D vs 99. Surprisingly 88D is similar (in feel) to the Lining 7000i. Keen to try the 9000d... PS I haven't voted on the deal. (y)
We all have our personal preference and style of play, some players do prefer more head light rackets, so I think it's unfair to say that it's more trouble than it's worth. Do you have any information/links about the defects for the Astrox 99?
Meh, head light rackets, been there done that, more trouble than it's worth. Astorx was good though, however they had a spell of defects for the 99, still giving it a pass. Like you say, got to get back on court first! (zombie)
Do you have a link for this at £85 - am looking for a new racket and this looks a great price
The infamous HUKD effect in action! (lol)
I think this has expired, the link gives me a 404 and when I search for it it's coming up for 169.99. Great deal for those than managed to get it!
Thank you for posting. Your thread has been selected for our Highlights section (y)
6 comments since 2013 with one of them blasting this deal which has 400 heat, on Highlights page saying it's crap like other hot deals? (confused) Is that better? Can't see how you can defend a zero contributer whose last comment was to put down what this site is about

i would have no problem wearing that back in the 70's. Unfortunately in today's climate, I suspect any child venturing on to the school playing field dressed in that would be bullied to death and be subjected to a miserable time in full time education.
They are better quality than this lol, can carry a weeks shop in that baddy
Ffs I just bought this, 2nd hand for alot more (mad) , good find
Last played Madden 19 so can't comment on last years effort but your right it's the same with every EA sports iterations with some slight gameplay and graphics tweaks. Interested in seeing the PS5 upgrade though as that made FIFA 21 a much better looking and playing game imo anyway.
I haven't really seen much change since NFL 2021, it's the same rehashed game every year with a minor change and a new high price tag and all your microtransactions reset back to ZERO is you play Ultimate Team (which I don't). Didn't this game lead to a giant outcry of fans wanting the NFL license taken away from EA due to it's broken nature very poor change from 2020 to 2021 with 2020 assets still in the game, of course all the fault EA won't loose the license it will never happen. But I do choose the vote with my wallet and never give EA a single penny. If I do purchase these it's usually second hand just or play a friends copy through game pass.
I don't agree with the usual EA in game monetisation but if you don't get dragged in to all that they still make decent NFL sports games.
Better yet, vote with your wallet and don't buy this at all. Don't give EA a single penny.
The villa ones are only 17 quid. You should go for that instead! https://shop.avfc.co.uk/en/aston-villa-home-stadium-shirt-2020-21/p-2379330170152886+z-901-1681722700?_ref=p-OSLP:m-GRID:i-r0c0:po-0&sku=32712342
