So I have been trying to gather as much data as I could these past few months, comparing different rackets and such. But I still haven't narrowed it very much. I'm looking for an balanced doubles racket (that's good for attacking/defending) that can also be used for singles. I'm an intermediate player and an all-rounder. I'm 6'' (not sure if that makes any difference). I'm also currently using a light racket approx 82g 'vanilla' and I'm a hard-hitter (at least I think I am), but I'm looking for a departure from the headlight racket area (b/c I already have one). The brands I'm looking at are Victor, Adidas, and Yonex. What I think I want: From Victor: Mx80: I believe I might like the feedback of the racket as well as the power I hear about. BS12: I heard that this was a good doubles racket, don't know much else. From Adidas: Duoforce: Kwun's review got me very interested, however I don't know much about this racket other than the reviews. Adi-power pro: Reverse tapered shaft may be useful in pushing more powerful shots. From Yonex: Nanospeed 9900: Seems to be an overall favourite in the forums, wherever I search. Seems to be a very good all-rounder racket, according to reviews. Arc-Saber 12: Apparently also a very good racket for a controlled doubles rally. 4U VTZF: I want an explosive racket, but since I'm used to a light racket, 4U might help me in the transition. I'd like to hear your opinions or other recommendations! EDIT: I can't really demo these rackets unless some of my friends have them. I live in Toronto, and the only play that demo's is Browns. They only give you 3 days. That's not quite enough for me.
