I am a beginner/intermediate player ( been playing for a little under a year) and have been using a Armortech 600 since I started playing. I recently used my wife's arcsaber 11 and fell in love with the stiffness during my smashes. I am fairly new to the game and my strong point is my smash and I am extremely inconsistent on my net play. I usually end up bouncing the birdie to high and allowing a kill shot when I am on the net. The reason I am asking this is because I want to use a stiffer one but I am hesitant that it might make my net play worse. I am currently looking at the Victor MX 90 after reading the reviews on here and Coach Paul. If I posted this in the wrong tab my apologies. Thanks for your time.
