    Honestly Li-Ning is overpriced. You can get a better racket for the same value of money from other manufactures. What is your budget? E.g. Apacs, Fleet, Head and so on.

    Apacs have pretty good rackets at your budget. Too many models for me to mention here. They are light (minmum 4U) and can withstand high tension. Thanks

    Agree with ucantseeme and Racexp. There are many good rackets out there at a lower price than Li Ning and Yonex. Apacs is one of them.

    yosi11,
    Yes, there are Apacs models with head heavy. You can check out Apacs website for racket specification and also Apacs Fan thread in BC Forums.

    If you intermediate player my suggestion racket suitable for is :
    Flex: soft or medium (don't too soft)
    Balance: Head heavy (if u like play smash)
    weight: 82-85 gram
    frame design: 1. isomatric good for defensive and control. some racket provide over size frame for more control. 2. Oval or egg design better for smash.
    String: about 24lbs to 26lbs (suggestion string yonex ultmax or li ning AP62 for more power)

    What important when u choose your racket is not the brand but which racket suitable for u....we are know yonex and li ning is branded brand for racket and popular racket among us...but if u want to find quality racket from this brand u must have a lot of money. My suggestion around u budget is:

    Bedini aero 9i (price about $30)
    Dunlop biomimetic elite (price about $50)

    $30-$50 get a APACS Nanopower 700 or something. Super cheap and good.

    Instead of Li Ning, stick with the world standard: Yonex

    Try out the Yonex Armortec-70 -- a super good yet affordable racket. I bought it instead of the Armortec 700 (which is expensive) and I'm very happy with the 70.

    Pro Ace Titanium Dream is head heavy but very light racket (5U, CMIIW). I think you should not go directly to any extreme head heavy 3U racket. Just try Flypower warior 7 or astec aero tornado / aero hurricane series, thats a gradual upgrade to your pro ace racket.
