    hi, I'm looking for new racket for double plays. Now I'm looking at 1.Arc FB 2.Arc Z Slash 3.Nanoray 800 Personally my style play is not a smash player but I'm control and second striker player (Want racket that can smash many times without hurt your arm like Muhammad Ahsan does.)or if you have any racket to recommend me, please advice. Thanks

    Does it have to be Yonex? I am using the Adidas Adipower DuoForce as my doubles racket. DuoForce with ZyMax 65 or BG80P at 27lbs is nice for me.

    It my go to racket for doubles :)
    It's even balance, speed is decent for a 88g +/- 2g... Swing speed, my Shiden is still faster. Smashing is decent.. I wouldn't say it's a fast or heavy smash. But it gets the job done. Control is pretty good.
    But then again, I'm not a really good player either. It's a forgiving racket and it's stiff... Don't count on any flex from it.

    I recommend you choose, MX 90, BS 12N, TK 9000, or jetspeed series.

    After going through many rackets the best advice I can give is to buy a used racket and see if you like it. If you don't you can trade or sell it. Keep doing this until you find the racket for you. BC has a great buy and sell section and you can pick up any racket. FYI a friend of mine has a couple of nanoray and they chip very easily.Looking at your requirements I would say an even balanced with a mid - stiff shaft would be a good starting point.
