    Ok , so if there were "best" rackets for you . You probably have 5 "worst" rackets. And probably because of marketing , you've been tricked to buying them , which is a a mistake in disguise.

    Name your top 5 worst rackets here and explain.

    Mine is
    5)Arcsaber 11 - It's only a slight improvement of 10 , if you're already contented with your 10 , dont get it.
    4)Nanoray 800 - "King of Drive" . Not worth it , hard to produce power with . Better get a NR750.
    3)N90 - It's basically a killing machine with the super right hands . Beginners may think they may get pro with this easily , theyre 200% wrong . Hard to use , stiff , HH . CAUTION BEGINNERS :DONT GET IT
    2)Arcsaber FB - Seriously , Yonex became crazy . They made a 73gram $230 high end racket for only a month's (maybe even only a week) use . Aside from that , its hard to use , hard to generate power with , only for international pro's use .
    1)Yonex Nanoray Z Speed - Okay , this is the part where yonex became real idiots . They made a head heavy racket to sit into the throne of nanorays . It's uncomfortable , its mediocre in defense , its pricy and they call it a nanoray , when in fact it's a voltric . Beginners again, DO NOT GET THIS if you want a headlight

    I dont own some of these , i have tested 4 .But from thousands and thousands of feedbacks from these . I would say my opinions on these are real.

    I bought a...

    ... LiiNing MegaPower N9 FHF -- but it didn't make my smash go 300km/h.
    ... YY ArcSaber Z-Slash TH -- but it didn't give me a lethal backhand.
    ... Victor Bravesword LHI -- but it didn't improve my footwork.
    ... LiNing Woods N90 LD -- but it didn't make me World Champion.
    ... YY ArcSaber 10 PG -- but it didn't make my hair blond.


    How could those evil companies built our expectations so high, only to have their products fail to deliver? :( Perhaps we should get together and sue for false advertising. :rolleyes:

    Now that you mention V. :p

    I'd have to say BS12.

    Practically the whole KOR team plays with it. Mid stiff head light balance is advertised. And that's the ones we buy off the shelf, which are not the same as theirs.

    When I bought one and used it, the head was lagging so far behind in my shots that I thought it was in another time zone. :p That's when I found out the pros get the KRP version. :(

    I might receive some hate for this...but oh well :D

    The MX70 and MX London feel like logs to me. BAD logs.

    Nice thread! ^^

    1) Arc 11: supposed to be an improvement of Arc 10 but just un softer version I think... Still wonder how pro players can play with such a non responsive racket
    2) N 55 II: I was expecting a stiffer version of N55 I to play fast double game like Hong Wei but that's not the case...
    3) TK 8000: way to soft too, impossible to play fast double game with it (and I even struggle to play single with it)
    4) Babolat X Feel Blast GT: well balanced and fairly stiff but very strange feeling (so dampened). A lot of players are using it in Europe. Just because of sponsorship I think.
    5) Victor SW 37: just a softer version of SW 35, not really an improvement. Hard to smash hard with it

    Hey benito ,
    Try to play with the TK8000 for a day and you may get improvements . Numerous feedbacks say it is hard to adjust with this racket but once tamed , miniquakes will be on your opponent's court :D .

    I tried, but I'm a wrist player so I think this soft catapult will never suit me ;)

    the racket that deceived me most was voltric z-force. i thought that a top of the range head-heavy racket would add a lot to my game and make my hits harder. couldn't have been more wrong.
