    Here's my update..

    Game: Singles / Doubles / Mixed Doubles

    Style: fast, precise, steel drops and netplay, focussing on steep, precise smashes and drops. And also smooth footwork.. im always working on it..

    Rackets: MP40 3U( Main for now, head-heavy balance makes it easier for me to use my wrist more in order to create steeper smashes and drops ), AT700 3U, Cab8SP ( for fun.. it's a whip.. )

    String:
    -AT700 : BG65P - 26lbs
    -Mp40 : Micropower XL - 24lbs

    Shoes: Mizuno Sala Libre

    Grip: yonex wet superstrong grap

    Control+Net play/Black Knight 865 Rapier Be-small grip/Ashaway MP XL (the store was sold out on regular MP)@22-23lbs

    the Rapier is amazing for defence and control, but is terrible for power. I've had it only for 2 weeks and it's a pain for the forearm. When i practice with a friend, we do full court clears for about 10min, and with the Rapier i have to force way more than before...

    60% offensive 40% defensive.
    i jump smash a lot, clears and net play, but most of the time i play receiving cos my partner gave chances to opponents because still a newbie.

    my racket still mp55, tension 23/25lbs, however don't really like the racket, cos is way to head heavy when i manouver and costs a lot of missed shots in defense and offense. hope that helps
