    compared to your apacs racket, which should be similar to yonex AT900T, do you want more power/more manoeuvrability? or similar feeling?

    Not totally sure, but similar rackets might victor mx70/BS12/BS15, yonex vt80

    Voltric 80 (4U)
    4U version allows to have more control and speed with the racket

    I would rather use an ArcSaber 5 *regular not 5DX* or 7 any day for doubles over any of the Voltric series....

    Try to get a SW35 (3U). Many user swear by this racket, include me. For me a 3U racket is fast and light enough. Otherwise a 4U VTZF, VT80 or AT900, all 4U, were an option.
    If I were you, I would contact Eric (Squash_mart on ebay). He has decent stuff, at a very good price and the shipping is dirt cheap.

    I think the SW35 is definitely not a racket for a person who just plays 3 years, this racket is one of the stiffest rackets on the market so it will not allow any impurities in the stroking skills. I have this racket, and a play for 7 year regularly badminton and its the only racket I could not tame up today (3 games with this racket and I get muscle hardening).

    U can try Karakal bn60 / SL70, Li Ning N55 II, Kason F9, ...

    What do you like ? stiff/soft Head heavy/ Balanced/ headlight ? Why did you not like N50 II?

    i like N50II when im playing at the back..can deliver drop shot,backhand clear and smash with little energy..but when it come on defending,i cannot bear with its weight (head heavy)..this maybe due to my weaker wrist..so need to practice my wrist in order to tame this racket..

    I think everything balanced ( Bp < 295 mm), medium stiff/stiff and 4 U should fit for you there are many rackets in this area.
    The only racket I have with this characteristics is the Li Ning N77, it is very easy to use something like the jack of all trades but the master of none, maybe a little too soft for you. (But I also saw some male pro players are using it at national tournaments)

    Buy a sturdy racket with a stiff flexibilty and 25+ tension.And also a consider your budget.I recommend Yonex,Li-ning and Prince rackets for doubles play.:):D
