    A voltric 5 should be ideal one for you!

    Voltric 9 is a stiff racket. In fact it's much stiffer than a VT 70. If you have problem with your backhand clearances, it means that your wrist hasn't developed the right technique just as yet. Voltric 5 is head heavy and also has a medium flex shaft. It will help you generate more power and is a lot more forgiving than the VT 9!

    All my friends who have seen me play and also my school coach recommended me to buy a stiff racket as my smashing is my main strength. so i think i will go for the voltric 9.

    if you are offensive type player VT9 is more suits you than nanoray 100.....
    nanoray series suitable for defensive player or control players...
    one more, you said that you have problems with your backhand, why dont you get a less stiffer racket as it can produce more power for your backhand....
    VT5 maybe a better alternative and cheaper.....

    maybe you still not used to the racket....
    take some time and try to get used to it.....
    imo, it's still too soon to decide....

    Take some time mate - just because you're not Lin Dan after your first few matches with a brand new racket doesn't mean you need to change.
    There is a weight and swing difference, that your body and eyes will get used to. Your touch with this particular racket will get better with a little time - be patient, or we'd all be switching rackets after every point! :) Good luck!

    please don't expect the racket to do everything for you. besides having a racket that suits your playing style, you also need to work on your technique. it's a trial and error thing when it comes to finding the "perfect" racket. after a while you'll notice something else you want from your racket, then you'll be in search again. eventually, you'll have enough experience with rackets to know what kind of racket you want. unfortunately, all that info/knowledge must be experiences/learned and not told, so take our advice with a grain of salt.
