    My friend is looking for a new racket because her boyfriend sliced her Gosen Excellence in half with his Brave Sword 10 ( literally.. BS10 was fine :p )... She asked me to help her find a playing racket which will help her perform better ( so pink is NOT mandatory )..

    She's really good at the net but lacks the power to clear from the back ( typical problem )... So I think she needs a light racket with a medium flex shaft... She claims my Gosen Shiden is too heavy...

    She has tried the ArcSabers and didn't like that at all... So I'm thinking maybe MX60 4U... Light and medium flex with a heavier head to help clears... Any other suggestions?

    Obviously technique would help with her clears more than a racket would (long term at least), but the VT60 is probably the best fit for her, although the MX60 might be something to look into as well

    armortec 900 technique. i've seen many female players use this racket since you can get it in 4u which is really light, but because of the head heavinesss, it will help her in the power shots like clears and smashes.

    Isn't the voltric 30 a 5u? Though maybe that's too light I think it's flex too

    @decoy I didn't know the Voltric 30 was out already.

    But on topic, the Voltric 60 would definitely be a good choice. I have one and it makes clears from backcourt easy.
