    Hi everyone I'm a junior player age 14 .i usually played doubles,rarely singles. I am using victor bs10 and this January I'm planning to get a new racket. I am an aggressive player ,not really good at defense. And I found my current bs10 suites me well. Can anybody help me choose between lining n90ii,n50(first edition),or nanoray 700 fx ,I play doubles more as a front court player. But also likes smashes..

    Since your current racket suits you well why do you want to change it? Any specific attributes you're looking for that's missing from the BS10?

    bro. if u just 14, its better to invest the money into your game. eg enroll in a training, or increase the session say for everyday. it will develop your muscle, skills and anything in badminton. plus. badminton is all about the ability to land the shuttle inside the opponents court. and to be able to do that u need to retrieve the shuttle well. and it means good footwork is the first and foremost. to be able to have good footwork etc its better u improve your game. racquet is a merely an extension of your hand that help u deliver the shuttle into the opponents court. racquet is very expensive bro. better u play well, represent your school, district province whatsoever then get sponsored. u could choose any racquet that u want.

    A racket is just a tool

    Hi there,

    No racket can give you the quality of "power" into your smash . Regardless if you're using the most expensive brand available or it's the latest product used by a world class player, none of this will contribute a lot and since it is just a tool to facilitate you to do your smash and at the end, it is your racket limb that will painstakingly do all the swinging therefore, the quality of all your smash will depends on how correct is your smashing preparation as well as the application of the right technique on how to do a smash that will give you the power that you're lacking.

    If your current bs 10 suits well for you as you've said and it has able to deliver satisfactory performance into all your other hits but not your smashing power, then just stick to bs 10 again and polish your smashing technique furthermore rather the other way around. If you've already confidently accessed yourself that you have all the approach to do a correct smash and then the quality of "power" does improve by trying the other racket specification, then at this point its worth changing to that racket judging by the quality in all your hits. The only way to do this is to try out those racket and some of those candidate are mentioned here by the other BC members.

    Just to highlight a few things here, at your age (14 y.o), its indeed it's threatening to have a descent power in all your hits especially in your offensive department but as far as emphasizing the quality in all your hits is concern and especially your smash, prioritize to improve the other two important quality first into your hits that you can read here in my other thread for your references: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/for...mproving-the-Quality-of-your-Smash?highlight=

    Due to the evolution in making racket currently has improve very much and its able to be player friendly to easily match its specification to the player desire specification that he wants to have into that racket, such technology does not exist many decades ago when i wield my Yonex Blacken Knight II while at your age but then the quality of all my hits at that time I'm confidently sure that it will be no different if i'm using a bs 10 now if I'm still at your age.

    As importance it is to find and investing into a suitable racket that fits well with your specification as a player, you must realize that its finding the correct knowledge and having a sound technique in applying such knowledge into your game play that will make you a better player from today and the coming days and this is even worth investing.
