    hi... i mostly play doubles and prefer playing in front. Presently i am playing with Voltric 7 and want a more aggressive head heavy backup racket for sharpen my smashes. Looking for some affordable options around £60.

    Thanks...

    Absolutely love my MX80, even in doubles. It has a lot of power, is very stiff and still surprisingly agile for doubles speed.

    Thanks for the suggestion mate ... but I think my wrist and arm muscles are strong enough for a stiff shaft yet. I tried ArcSaber 009 and it gave pain and vibration in elbow and then i handed back racket just after few minutes of play :)

    For around £60, I think you can try VT5.

    If you play at the front court, it's not logical to go for a more head havey racket. Because you would lose your speed, that is more important at the front. Voltric 7 is already a little head heavy racket. Maybe you should work on your technic. Or you could try other even-balanced (arcsaber) or headlight (nanospeed) rackets.

    I had same query, but I try and play at the back more. I'm using a head-light racquet and will borrow a VT5 to try next week. I was looking at the VT7 - so is it not heavy headed enough? You said 'backup' so it must be doing well enough to keep as a main.

    maybe save your money and train on how to hit a stronger smash with the correct mechanics?

    Can't quite remember how much N60 is but I think it's a decent doubles racquet. Haven't played with it before and it is pink so if you're a guy, probably not the best looking racquet for you ;)

    I think one of the carlton vapour trails would be quite good for what you're asking before although they're not particularly head heavy so maybe they're not you're ideal option.
    i know your budget is £60 but just as a reference for future possibilities, Cai Yun uses Kason C7 which is head heavy so maybe give that a go sometime, but as people before me have said; using a head heavy racquet isn't ideal at the front unless you've got SUPER strong wrists

    The Kason C7 isn't really that head heavy, feels more like even balanced :p and easy to use at the front, just my experience though.
