    I'm an average/intermediate player. Now I'm only playing about once a week, but when I go back to college, I'll probably be playing about 3-4 times a week. My friends are all really good players and my game is improving enough so that I feel I should get a better racket. Until now, I've been using a KX racket, saying the model wouldn't be much use, so its just a fairly light racket. I think a very light 3U or maybe even a 4U. Its balance was almost even, very slightly head heavy. Anyway, my playing style is more control and defensive. But I find my smashes, clears and lobs can be weak and I doubt it's because I'm lacking in arm strength. It might possibly be my technique, but my friend who is a state player doesn't really think so. So I'm looking for an all-round racket I suppose, specifically something that has good control but if possible, something that would also improve my offensive capabilities. Because now I'm aiming to improve on my smashing. I don't have a budget per say, but not willing to spend too much either as I'm not a fantastic player. RM400~~ is a rough figure, but can stretch the figure if I find a perfect feeling racket. I'm afraid I'm very biased towards Yonex rackets. I hope I can get some good recommendations and buy a new persent for myself soon xD

    I think there is a new B900 or something, mid-range. Super head-heavy as I heard.
