@Choclit: where did you buy those Asics racquets? I live in Washington, DC and it is very hard to find a decent place to demo Japanese racquets.
A fantasy: If I was the CEO of Asics, I would buy Yonex and have it to produce racquets while Asics would provide apparels, shoes and accessories.

My wife, who is a 4.0 to 4.5 level player is also switching to the 116 as soon as they are in stock. I think the chart referenced earlier in this thread is essentially correct about the NTRP level for the 116: 3.0 to 4.5.
