    Hey, this is my first post!!!

    I am looking for a new racket
    Criteria:
    -Lightweight (4u)
    -Slightly head heavy
    -Around £60-80

    I have looked at the Victor lightfighter 7400 and this seems to fit the criteria well but I'm can't find anything else so can anyone suggest a racket?

    I am an intermediate player with average strength but I cannot clear from the back line to the other back line, it usually ends up in deep mid court.

    My smashes are fairly good but I'd like to improve it.

    I play doubles and singles

    I think the voltric 5 or 7 might be too heavy for me.

    Can anyone suggest a racket??

    Welcome aboard BC!

    idk much about the lightfighter series but what're your current/previous rackets? how long have you been playing, and have you always had the problem of clearing from baseline to baseline (whether fore or backhand)?
    you have a good budget and i'm sure the experts in here can recommend a lot of good choices.

    keep looking around and you'll certainly learn a lot! hope you have a fun time here with us :)

    I am currently using an arcsaber 5, 3u 4g even balance.
    I have been playing on and off about 4 years and regularly for the last year.
    My technique is good but I still cannot clear(forehand) baseline to baseline.
    Honestly, I think any 4U head heavy racket will do so can you recommend a good one within my budget.
