how does this racquet compare to the c10?

Well i have compared both. My opinions are as follows

C9 Pro

I absolutely loved the maneuverability of the racket. It feels so light and you can really whip up the ball.

It is a fair comment that there might not be as much heft as some other rackets. Some people might find this most disconcerting at the top of the head. But the control is just insane...

It also seemed comfortable to play with, not harsh at all.
C10 Pro

Again a lovely players frame. Substantially more heft, and it felt heavier to swing. For me it didn't work as well on my forehand side. I really have a fast swing - so control was a bit difficult on this side. However i was hitting crunching backhands due a shorter slower swing on this side. All round solid hitting to be quite honest. Much prefered the old bumble bee style - perhaps because the new one (black pj) was a little too stiff for my liking, due to it not being strung as much etc etc.

I've always wanted to try the c9 but can't really find it anywhere. but i have a c10, the older version, there seems to be a lot more of those around.
