String was very delicate and it broke on me.

Hi Faruk, thank you for the review on the Yonex Exbolt 65 strings that came with the racket! I hope that you liked the racket though :) We have a blog post on broken strings that may help you if you search on the website!

Nice Design Works Well

Love this racket in terms of the design and the feel in my hand. Suits my more attacking style of play as I enjoy being a hard hitter

Very high satisfaction

This baby is hot! Extremely sexy design with the slim and blood burned effects on the night black body. 10/10 design.

Feeling and handling is awsome it feels very whippiy and actually quite alot of weight in the swing, but it moves swiftly through the air. 9/10.

Speed is not Ideal as the shaft has a bit slow response and head being very heavy, but the aerodynamic fame makes it still very usable in doubles defense and drives 7,5/10.

control is good, but not too great, the head guides the shuttle well, but it lacks a bit of stableness from the softer shaft, 7,5/10.

Power is very good, although not really on the ax 99 pro level, but still can whip and thump down the shuttle hard. The whippiy stick smashes feels really cool. 8,5/10.

total score 32,5 out if 40.

Based on 4u G5 spects.

I am very happy with this racket and will keep using it for a long time, I currently have one and ordered an additional two Havocs.

Thanks Yichen for the ratings and such a thorough review! We're always trying to improve so your feedback is invaluable to us :)
