    ive been an intermediate player for a while and now im moving to a more advanced level. I've been using a top heavy racket and i think i might like a bottom heavy one. what would you recommend?

    Are you in Louisville? If so, there is a shop there you can demo racquet.
    FYI, There is no exact formula on what you should get without seeing or knowing your style, strength. So, please give us more info on yourself so we can help you more on suggestion. However, there is nothing better than demo racquet or try it out yourself.

    To get better advice here from members, you could inform about things like:

    age:
    height/weight:
    how often you play:
    current racket:
    current strings (and tension):
    how often you restring:
    etc.

    Cheers,
