    I am looking for a light racket
    Ashaway Nano Dynamic 130 £32
    Ashaway Nano Dynamic 80 £38
    Victor Ultramate 9 £40
    I know with this budget, I better go with other brand. But I am still curious on arc001 and nanoray 20. Can anyone suggest a good racket for me please.

    I bought an apacs edgesaber which served me well for a while. I know the purists will frown on it but it was a decent quality middle of the road racket.

    I can't find much about Apacs in the UK. I think they do International shipping, but it takes some time..

    Thanks for your suggestion. I will see keep this as one of my option. If there any other good racket than this, I spend my money on it.

    I have one more question to ask. Do they provide a proper grip? It said G2 there, wouldn't it be so small??

    The grip on mine is roughly the same size as my arcsaber 8dx give or take a few mm I guess.

    If you know of a stringer, I'll do you a good price on mine. I was going to get some lead tape to turn it into a training racket.

    I don't own an arcsaber 8dx. Is the grip about the same size as Muscle Power 7? I am quite confuse by the grip size system,isn't G2 suppose to be big? Normally, Yonex do G4 racket. I don't know any stringer, the reason for me getting a new racket is because my broken string.
