    hi, Looking for some advice on getting new racket. Naturally I have alot of strength and power so Im not looking for something which helps that area of my game, I would be wanting something that would help in accuracy and would also help when playing in around the net. Probably a bit too vague but I dont know too much about rackets out there at the moment and would be lost if I walked into a shop. TY

    the best would be the yonex arcsaber range...!
    depending on your budget the arcsaber 10 is one of the best used by many bc members here and professional players.
    helps you in accuracy and control!

    If you want extreme speed, you could give the Nanoray a try... but for a good solid feel and nice balance, i agree with Brandon, the ArcSaber line is definetely the most trusted!

    If you can handle stiff shafts then try the BS10 or BS LYD for defence and accuracy as well as power!

    You should try ArcSaber series. I am using an ArcSaber racket now and I'm pleased of it. So give it a try. :)

    if you have enough strength and power then go the extreme, nanoray which is superlight, or voltric which is head heavy. try them out and see which one suits your game best :)

    Dont switch racket, but train more.

    Net play is all about doing it a lot and you will get the hang of it. Same goes with the accuracy. If a shot doesnt went well. Try for the second time, 3rd time endlessly trying till it goes right.

    Racket switch is only handy if you want to try something new or looking for a racket that suits your play. If you already have a good racket dont switch.

    I already played with an ArcSaber 10, now I'm playing with Voltric 80 and I like it much more!
    If you like to attack in your gameplay, try the Voltric-Series (Voltric 80 / Z-Force). They are head heavy and gives you much smash power.
    For a balanced gameplay, I would recommend you the ArcSaber 10. The balance is middle - good enough for defense and also good enough for smashing.

    What do you prefer head heavy/ head light/ even balanced ?
    Stiff/ medium/ flexible?
