They have decent spin and speed, but i find that sometimes it does lack some spin
If you want to stay with the Vega series you can choose Vega X or the new Vega Pro H. You also choose to go with the more premium series as Omega VII/VIII or Jekyll & Hyde.

Does the TMXi Pro version come lacquered, because I'm thinking on whether to buy it already lacquered from TT11 or forego it.
Would asking for a lower weight with the TMXi Pro defeat the purpose of getting it?
Compared to the TMXi, since I know it's head heavy and want to try and mitigate that.

Edit: some blades become more hollow the lighter they are, so I wanna know if this blade does the same.
I do not recall my blades was sealed, but if that was the case it was very light. I gave my blades a thin layer of sealant as limba tend to splinter when removing the rubbers.
I would choose a blade that is close to the nominal weight and you feel it is heavy then go down in rubber thickness or find some lighter Rubbers.

I recently got mine from t11. 91 g. Not sure if it was factory lacquered or not but when I bought from tt11 I didn’t choose the option to be lacquered.
I wish the design came without the pro and player signature written on the respective bottom ends of the blade just to look more minimalist. Nevertheless, I really like how it looks and the handle is really comfortable at least for my liking.

Plus I’m not sure if xiom is gonna release the same design of this blade since an jaehyun is no longer a xiom sponsor player as his contract was terminated due to player’s failure to comply the contract according to what xiom claimed. It could even be like the future supplies will not include his name, signature or even could come up with a whole new design. But I don’t think they’re gonna discontinue it.

Yep I was concerned abt the limba splintering which is why I considered getting it lacquered immediately.
Let's see if I can find a 89g blade.

Hit some with the Dignics 80 and Hurricane 3 Prov orange sponge on it.
Dignics 80 is a great rubber, it just feels like it bounces off the racket a bit too early.
Dignics 05 would suit it better because of the denser pimple spacing.

Now Hurricane 3 Orange sponge on this blade, holy cow. I can see why Gan recommended using blue sponge, it's hard and fast. I'll be trying 40 degree blue sponge and most likely Omega 7 Pro on this blade in the near future.

@Giangt Apart from the difference in head size, would you say that TMXi and TMXi Pro have any significant other differences in play?
I'm currently playing for 2 years now with normal TMXi and I love it.
Is it worth trying the Pro version or is it exactly the same?
Yes, there will be a difference in play if you are using same rubbers for the Pro version. The will give more dwell and vibration. Mostly the vibration is noticeable. Total weight will also be in the high of +190g if u are using max thickness for both sides and getting a blade which is on nominal weight.
