    FB vs Zspeed :confused:
    FB is a great, feather light overall weight racket (5U/F) with a slightly head heavy balance; ZSpeed is heavy overall weight (2U/3U) with head heavy balance. :p
    ---
    If you are really love to make folks run around and don't really smash, you could go for FB - light and enough clear power. But remember the FB's durable is also like a feather, I have seen 3 FB in my life and only one of them remain surviving lol :D
    ---
    I don't recommend ZSpeed, it is a high-end racket and hard to get used to - also it's freaking heavy and smash friendly, I don't like smashing :D
    ---
    Other than that, you can either go for Nanoray 600, 700Fx, 750, 800, or Arc Saber 11,... they are all at similar bugged yet defending friendly and lie from mid-rank to high-end racket :)
    Also, I'm currently playing VTZF2 (3u and 4u), the 4u is a great defender too if you have a good shoulder :p

    p/s: Plz correct if I said anything wrong, I'm only a 2 years player anyway :)

    Haha, the easiest rackets to be played -I think- are those balance, mid-rank rackets :p (they are also economical if you are to change the racket in the future once you decide your play style)
    ---
    What I recommend should be Nanoray 700-Fx, Nanoray 90-Dx, Nanoray 600 if you are looking for a nice, economical racket with a good combo of Yonex's technology :D
    Those racket are a little bit light at the head but flexible, which mean easy to swing around and easy to create enough clear power :D
    ---
    Other than that, there are the ones I listed earlier, those are all stiffer, heavier balance, harder to play but can also create beautiful shots :eek: (and of course, "cost-er" lol)

    I would love to play with the 900PLC, it's already a good racquet... Remember you control the bird not the racquet. Any type of yonex racquet can perform
    Drop shots and hit back to the rear court it comes down to technique as well.

    Can't see the image :D, what you mean :confused:
    --- [MENTION=116776]armotecs[/MENTION]: Z-Speed is a good racket, heavy overall weight (to me), yet it is just a little bit heavy at the head (still in the balance catalog I guess) :D
    Try to look around if there is any demo racket at your area to see if the Z-Speed is suitable for you, for me it kinda hard to use compare to Z-Force II :D

    I
    i find it head heavy, I feel like the shaft flexibility and the head heaviness don't work well together I just hate the combo of it.
