    based on my experience from the list above (i have tired the LINing HC, MP22+ and MP 29lt) i found that the MP 29 light give more than the other.

    IMO Lining HC 1500 is quite good, but it has "softer" feel on impact witch i don't really like and the "muted" sound feeling for me.. i don't know with others players, but for me i don't really like this racket.
    For the MP22+ and the MP29lt felt nearly the same (balanced, medium stiff) but the high cost of MP22+ in my country (approximately less than 10$ difference with the 29lt) would make the MP29lt which have more technologies a better choices..

    this is just my personal opinion, hope this can somehow help you..

    Thanks for your suggestion,As i have mentioned i am pretty new to this sport and just mentioned a few which are within my budget ,Please also suggest a different racquet (if MP29 is really the best for my budget,then cool i will go ahead with it .

    Is mp22 power any better bcz i see its more costly then mp29 light ofcourse just by $2-4) which woulds be good for a beginner like me i get all the racquets from Yonex here in my city and only the model from other brands mentioned below in following sites:

    Yonex,head,li ning,wilson,thwack,

    Slightly off topic. Where are you attending the coaching(Gurukul?) what is the cost?
