    Hi!
    im looking for a new yonex racket with a budget of around S$250
    i think im about intermediate, i can smash, return smash,
    but i still find problems in performing full court overhead backhand clears
    and my wrist tends to hurt after long games, so i figured out my racket was abit to heavy...( i guess im extremely offensive)
    im a leisure player, but im joining badminton team next year, thus i decided to get rid of my 6 yrs old racket xD
    im currrently using a carbonex 8 2U4G, restrung with Bg65ti
    occationally when i miss smashes, meaning i didnt even hit my racket, i would like hurt my wrist.

    so im thinking of getting a headlight racket this time, with a 4g grip cuz i got small hands with mayb 3U weight?

    any recomendations?

    with your budget of S$ 250, you should be able to get Ti10
    in Malaysia, Singapore i assume the price should be much
    or less the same...
    from andrew recommendations, Ti10 is the cheapest..
    compared to MP100, MP100 or nano series
    i have ti10 2nd gen and 3rd gen...:D:D

    AT700 is not head light so that isn't an option

    if yr wrist can take it and it is a healthy one. Within yr budget ARMORTEC 700 will solve your overhead backhand clear!

    wow...LeeCW in action !!!!....by the way...s$250 = RM600 malaysia....RM600 can get dam good yonex racket already...DON'T go for Apacs EDGE-SABER10/7...both are 4U..not suitable for u...i think u should give a try on AT900T....it consider slightly head heavy compared to AT900P and AT700....don getting too head light racket since u like offensive and extreamly offensive.....get something that SLIGHTLY offensive is great for u...

    AT900P and AT700 is head heavy...u can feel the heavier head of the racket....but AT900T is just right the slightly head heavier...so u won't lost ur offensive yet can make ur games more faster...if u get AT700, u hand even get more tired because of the head heavy....unless u have a good staminal for ur wrist =)

    about the full court overhead...u need to train more on ur footwork and also ur technique..don't think that racket may help u develop too much...it just help u to perform more well in games by ur technique....

    hope this will help u out
