    I need some advise on what racket i should get i have a budget of about £120. I am a county level control / defensive player. I would prefer a head light or balanced racket. I don't care what brand.

    Thanks for the advise :)

    Do you play singles/doubles? Do you like stiff or flexible shafts?

    I don't know about UK price, if ArcSaber 10 is under 120 pound, you should give it a try because it is an excellent control racket. It is balanced racket, slightly head heavy, suits well in singles and doubles too.

    The Victor BS10 is also a great racket, even balance and stiff shaft.

    I love the control I get out of the nanospeed 8000.

    The BS10 is a good shout and if you prefer slightly more flexible shafts you could go for a TW coded BS10

    AT900T. Stiff, head heavy but very very great manuver & defence (i have bs09 for comparation) but little bit lack of smash. maybe because of the stiffness
