    Playing League badminton at the moment ant constantly improving.

    I'm pretty quick around the court, play mostly doubles and though I have pretty good strength, most of my power comes from technique rather than brute force.

    Just snapped my second Carlton Airblade Tour which I loved :crying:.

    So I have the choice of any racket, reccomendations?

    Quite like the sound of the SL 70, anyone used it?

    carlton SL70?

    If you're serious about doubles I would recommend an Armortec800 OF, I love that racquet and It incorporates skill and doesnt need much muscle to push. Ive noticed that its an elite doubles racquet but i can still use it in singles.

    I used to be a carlton fan but that quickly changed after i picked up the armortec series

    The SL70 is a Karakal racket.

    it's up 2 u if u want an all round racket then the Armotec 500 should be right up your street. But i would reccomend you try different rackets before you buy.
