    The MP44 & MP66 are flexible and light (3U). They are head light which makes them feel lighter than other 3U's that are even or head heavy. My wife uses a 3U MP44 and she feels it's just as light as my 4U MP88. If you really want it even balance, adding an overgrip should do it.

    As far as skills, flexible racquets are usually meant for beginners.

    Armortec 300 is also a good one, though prolly more on the head heavy side?
    not too sure about head heaviness ...

    well, getting 4U yonex's is difficult in europe (I think..) but the best bet is probably the mp66. wich is terribly flexy (http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12833&page=8) though I haven't got a clue how head-heavy it is...

    and flexy rackets are also good for the wristy-players. wrist-players generally get a bonus form whippy shafts, while arm-players find it 'soggy'

    Thanks, more examples please!

    Thats what i thought, since i am a wristy player and do not hit the ball hard to get it to go long. I will look up the rackets that you have mentioned:rolleyes:

    About the weight of the ashaway Ti130 racket

    It says 75 grams, is it with or without the strings on? If it is with strings then is it not one of the lightest rackets in the world? like the karakal sl70? I would like to know the lightest racket as well...:eek:

    Superlight LG-200, and LG-300 from SOTX would also fit the bill. alsow Wilson V-14, Yonex NS7000 (but this is headlight).
