    If u prefer light (3U), balanced racket, Fung 2000 (decent power, excellent control) won't be a bad deal, since a brand new could be easily go up to $99 in US market.

    However, no idea about the Gosen ones.

    no idea about the gosen, but fung 2000 is good only if you have fast enough swing or good arm power, otherwise because of how light the racquet is (~83g), you won't generate much power. however you can achieve excellent control with the fung 2000.
