    Have you ever heard of the story of G3B's? This is the prediciment I am in. I am looking for a new racket. One that's not too hot or too cold but just right. I want to buy the right one.

    I have been using a MX80 4U but finding it too light. I regressed back to my SW35 3U which is a nice racket but looking for a replacement for the MX80.

    I want something that is head heavyish, not stiff or flexible and probably a 3U. I like the idea of a BS12 with the specs on the high end, ie. the KRP version but I can't get one.

    I need some recommendations. Help please BC!

    Ive had one but found the weight very similar to the 4U. Plus my shoulder is aging so starting to think that its time to get some help from a more flexible racket.

    Meteor JJS seems to fit your bill perfectly:) Or a 3U Thruster 8000.

    JJS, 3U or 4U? My main worry is the 4U will be too light like the MX80 4U.

    3U would be fine, and it's not quite as tall as the MX80 IME.
