    As my title i looking for a stiff like Ti-10 3rd gen , head heavy like BS10 i still prefer a lit more head heavy thought but i still prefer speed more.

    below is my detail.

    Level intermediate male 18years old player

    Playing style - aggressive , fast and furious all rounder and loves to play fast push on the net, fast drive, heavy net kill and heavy smash in game.

    Fav string tension - 27lbs

    Can handle Ti-10 3rd gen,BS10 without any problem so stiff and fast swing speed racket wont be any issue.

    If i look for a new racket which 1 you guys recommended should i go for? (MX80,ArcSaber Z Slash,N50)
    And also wondering is ArcSaber Z Slash easy get paintchip and crack like BS10?

    The Arcsaber Z Slash is good for smashing and is quite it will take time to get used to the racket.
    about paint chips if you play doubles you are possibly more likely to get paint chips and maybe a crack.
    Varies in different situations

    Speed, power, aggressive, feel, stiff, head heavy.

    You got all of that in the mx80!

    eh.. you sound pretty pro.. go get a sponsor first.. and they will choose a racket for you :p

    if you can handle the stiffness... go with the mx80.. maybe vt80 (it's getting a ton of good reviews and I think they have very similar specs.. but yonex of course being more expensive.. victor prices being awesome :D)

    Bro i have tried AT900P. indeed its power. but the speed abit slow just like VT80.
    You know my playing style i don't like to clear the shuttle unless forced to clear it hahaha.
    Now trying to get my smash drop as steep as i can and also improving my net play mistake.

    You should try and have a go with an Arcsaber Z-Slash because since it
    it is slimmer then other rackets you wont need to use a lot of power to get the shuttlecock right to the back of your opponents court.

    I see but i will just get the shuttle over the net by drop/smash even without power because i wont let my opponent got a chance to attack and wait for a half court shuttle and then get a heavy smash/net kill.

    Thank you for aspect i'm a pro just because i had many mistake on net play,and smash angle not steep enough and missed many score during game time.

    Out of all 3 you listed, only mx80 is considered stiffer or as stiff as ti10. The others are definitely flexier than ti10. Stiff is good, assuming you can handle it, because you get faster racket head response with slightly less lag (eg drives, smashes, interceptions).
