    Hello everyone, I am currently in the high novice to low-mid intermediate class.
    I just broke my racket which was horrible and I need a new one now. I am currently looking for a racket with great power, not 2 heavy, so maybe 85g w/string. My price bracket is 100-140. If I have to, i can sacrifice my control because my smash is downright laughable. My coach recommended me a black night PCS-50 XL.

    Help will be greatly appreciated.

    Try Kason Ultra-Light Rackets.

    Kason Ultra-Light Rackets are 77g.
    With string + wrap is approx. 85g.

    I'd recommend Kason Carvel U3 or Lepton F1, both are great rackets.

    From experience, a light, head heavy and flexy racquet with high tension allows you to generate power without the pain.

    My recommendation, Carlton Nanolite 9500, it also has one of the largest head I have ever seen so the sweet spot is huge.
