    Lucky I have used 5 racquets before, so here is my list.

    1) Nanospeed 9000 type X = the best smashing racquet I ever use...makes u feel like Fu Haifeng whenever u smash (wonder if Fu will break his own record of 206 mph if he switch to NS 9000X)

    2) Gosen Roots Aermet 2700 = another great smashing racquet, slightly head heavy that generates a power punch

    3) Carbonex 21 SP = old trusty classic racquet, develops strong wrist for more lighter racquet, still accurate as hell.

    4) Protech max nano 8800 = nice smashing racquet, too much vibration though gives one tennis elbow.

    5) Ti-10 SP = Fu Haifeng's main racquet = sonic boom smash

    my ns-9000x surely not the best smash racket i ever used, my carb 20 tour sp still has better power than X.
    but it's just my opinion.

    I'm not sure this list will last forever - otherwise no badminton manufacturer will ever survive! :D:p Maybe this time next year we all need to update our lists again! :rolleyes:

    Nevertheless, here is my current top 5: (in order of preference)

    1. AT900T
    2. SOTX Woven 12A
    3. SOTX Woven 8A
    4. AT800DEF
    5. MP88

    1. ISO TOUR-800 (Yonex) - well balance with slight head heavy. Classic!
    2. AT-700 (old color) (Yonex) - a good attack racket and good to work with
    3. MP-99 (Yonex) - its also good racket and will become a classic.
    4. NANO 1100 (Kumpoo) - my new favorite! light and fast at push drive game.
    5. CAB20 (Yonex) - another classic and well balance oval head racket!

    1) Armortec 700 3U- power + control = awesome
    2) Armortec 500 3U- less power, but faster than the 700. Broken though...
    3) Muscle Power 99 3U- control is great. Power is good too, but AT is better
    4) Ti 3 2U- good at control and power, but not the best. Aero- shaped head is good for defense though.

    You've finally avoided overswinging with your NS9000Xs? I'm just guessing, seeing as they're your go to racquets now.
