    What kind of player are you? Do you play singles or doubles? What are you looking for? What would you like to change at your current racket in terms of weight, stiffness, balance?
    It's difficult to recommend a racket if you don't tell something about your likings and wishs.
    Everyone can post him/her favorite racket but this doesn't help you because everyone has different demands.

    I recommend to go to Queensway to look at the shops plus it is good because you can have a swing with the rackets as well as you can bargain the price down.

    It depends on your taste of things

    .
    I would suggest that you test out various rackets that your friends use at your club.

    Rackets are like food. Some like certain types of food (racket), some don't.

    It depends on your taste of things (that you like).

    Good explanation

    .
    Hahaha...... It's true, isn't it?

    For example;

    Some like stiff shaft. Some like flexible shaft.

    Some like a heavy racket head. Some like a light one.

    Some like a BIG handle. Some like a small one.

    Even when we talk about strings tension; Some like high tension. Some like it low.

    Etc, etc, ......
