    Hello I need help finding an even balanced and stiff racquet. I was thinking about the Nanospeed 9900 and also the RSL X5 Gold. Please let me know what other racquets would be good. Thanks.

    9900 is a good racket.

    From personal experience, a 4U MX80 would be light enough to feel even balanced.

    Oh the VT80 look alike? Hm I tried to VT80 and it seems a bit too head heavy for my preference. How's the MX80 compare?

    Much stiffer and less head heavy. Dry bp around 295mm while vt80 is around 305mm.

    The MX80 isn't a copy of the VT80, please don't get the wrong idea:) MX80 is a good choice:)

    Gotcha, yeah I'm going to try to test out the MX80 and Slayer 99. The cheaper the racquet the better.

    Again, as for the MX80, Tantrum 300 is no even balanced, at all.

    It's amazing how many times on the site someones are trying to push MX80, SW35, VT80, and others, most of them stiff head heavy racquets, notwithstanding what specs people are looking for ! :confused:

    I do play at competition level stiff to very stiff head heavy racquets, even there I am not among the players majority.

    I do have issues proposing an SW35, MX80, VT80 to non advanced players, how excellent racquets they are; what for ?

    - that was why visor only recommended the 4u version of the mx80. For the balance point to stay around the same as the 3u version. The head must be lighter. Which in turn reduce the swing weight of the racket.

    But personally I do agree with you on the stiff/heavy head issue. I think unless someone has serious swing/wrist power. A medium or stiff-medium racket, even balanced with strings at 21-24lbs is probably more ideal.

    i think even balance and stiff should go to arcsaber in yonex series. nanospeed is headlight series in yonex. talking about voltric.. i think voltric 60 should be even balance.. not VT 80
