    Hi all..

    Can any member recommend me a head heavy with medium flex racquet. Am currently using MX60 and the flex is right but I hope that it is head heavier for better power...

    Am thinking about the Kason C7. Does this fits the bill?

    Thank you all... ;)

    If you're open to using Yonex, the VT70's a pretty good fit for the requirements listed.

    The Tantrum 500 has BP of about 290 +/- 5mm... my MX60 already having BP 300mm wet. I am hoping to have a racket with 305mm bp...

    if your mx60 has the right flex but you want a bit more head heavy maybe put some tape around the top of the head frame. but there is a possibility that the additional weight would make the shaft feel a bit more flexible.

    If you don't mind an older racquet and if you can find one, the Yonex Muscle Power 88 is a good bet.

    I have two, they are headheavy, but being 4U they are quite easy to play with.

    oh gees, i missed out on making that purchase when mp88 was still available. i think mp77 was top of the line when i made my first mp purchase. then i stopped for maybe 6 months and mp88 was gone. my friend has one and i've played with it and it feels great!!!

    if someone actually found a racket that is head heavy with a flexible shaft, please let me know because i've never come across such racket. i would definitely want to play with it to know the feeling of "whipping" a head heavy racket :)

    what about VT60??
    i never test it but yonex claimed it flexible shaft isnt it??
    dont know how head heavy it is but it's still a voltric, so for sure it's head heavy racket......

    hehehe, i just find the n90 heavy and when i compare it with my arc10 2u, it feels a lot similar, just that the n90 is a bit heavier. in fact, both my n90 and n50 are really close in feel. both on the heavy side even balance. from the heaviest to the lightest of these three heavy rackets i would say n90>n50>arc10/2u. :)

    Do you play singles or doubles? AT700 is head heavier and might not be fast enough for doubles. Very powerful for singles though. C7 is more maneuverable and is better suited for doubles.
