    people will say x or y racket has its strengths and weaknesses, but they won't admit that MX80 Meteor is the greatest racket of all time, even for singles

    There is no such thing as the best racket in the world and there never has been. Choosing a racket is down to personal taste and what a racket does for you.

    We each have different technique, style, strengths, weaknesses, physique, muscular structure and badminton experience. Put that together and there is no way one racket can be the best for all players.

    You have to test rackets to find the characteristics that suit you best so stop listening to other peoples opinions as it's a waste of time.

    Some players prefer head heavy, head light, even balance and then which shaft do we like best - flexible, medium flex, medium/stiff flex, stiff or extra stiff?

    With so many variables, let's agree that the best racket in the world is the one that you as an individual find to suit your game best.

    I personally own BS12 and BS LYD. For double players i think most of us would prefer LYD given the stiffness and power, BS12 is more on the control and slightly less stiff shaft material.

    I borrowed my friend's MX80 and MX London, MX80 is similar to Voltric 80, for me is little on the stiff side but powerful enough, MX London is slightly less stiff comparing to MX80, I haven't tried Legend yet as none of playing partners carry one.

    Personally I love the LYD, took some time to get used to, because I was playing BS 9 for a long time, but after adjusted to it, you feel the power and solidness of your long clear and smash.
    hope this helps and depending on your playing style and skill level. They all have their strength and weakness. Weakness is a bit overstate, all rackets here are excellent made in my opinion.

    Have a look at the Korean National team and what they are using. You will find your answer there. My personal choice is the MX80 followed by SW35 both strung with VS650.

    Best Victor racquets are :SW35, MX80 and the surprise of the lot, Bumblebee 01.Between these 3, you can find a racquet to suit almost all player types.
