I buy it followint BRR recomendation.
4U, lining N1 11.5x12.5 kg.
I play 100zz and tectonic 7 in parallel.
S9 is sery repulsive, good clears, not bad smashes, good defence.
After two months I still filling discomfort in the control.
And yes, It is the most beautiful racket I ever seen.
Coming from the Astrox 7 which is very stiff and slow, this racket felt like a breathe of fresh air in comparison. It feels very easy to generate power while also being fast in defense. Ever since switching to this racket members of my club have also complemented how much my game has improved since getting it which I have also felt. My technique is not developed to that of a advanced player but this racket is capable of assisting even if your technique is not perfect which makes it suitable for pretty much all players. The racket feels light for a 4U head heavy racket and not overly flexible to the point you have no control or feeling in the racket. BRR assisted me all through the process after telling them what I want from a racket and I can say their opinion is spot on. They also recommended me strings (Aerobite boost) which have also felt satisfying to use and I'd recommend to anyone wanting a hybrid string coming from BG 80. If you are thinking about a racket I'd highly recommend contacting BRR through the chat function on this website and the E-Zone for advice.
Overall I would recommend this racket to nearly all players unless you are someone that heavily prefers really light rackets and will definitely be trying more rackets in the future from their recommendations.
Appreciate that Ronnie, very kind of you!
