    noticeably flexible racket i've used and love is the arc002. even tho it's even balance and not head heavy, because of the "whippy" characteristics, i can generate quite a bit of power from whipping it around on court :) AND, it's under $80USD!!!

    VT7 mid stiff, VT3 flexible. If you want VT7, I would rather you try VT5. That "better" material used in the VT7 is not worth the extra money in my opinion.

    Btw, Twister F9 is EXPENSIVE. Low end Armortecs' would do fine too, other than the AT50 which is stiff.

    How about BS9 - medium flexed and weight more towards the head - also pretty well priced nowadays. BTW F9 isn't particularly head heavy IMO

    Oh, I just need as heavy as F9. That will do, but if BS9 is affordable, I'll be sure to put it into my list :). Thanks man!

    This is currently my list at the moment :
    1. VT3
    2. VT5
    3. VT7
    4. BS9

    Asides from that, what disadvantage should I expect from these list? Too much vibration? This is one of the reason I only stick to one racket
