    I consider myself as an advanced player, solid fundamentals with strong wrist. I play mostly singles but would like to play a little bit more doubles as more frineds of mine play badminton. That's why i am looking for a doubles racket.

    Though i don't know exactly the different between singles' and doubles' rackets, but i guess it's due to the difference in game plan.

    I don't mind playing with demanding rackets, as quite a number of my singles' rackets are pretty demanding.

    You will often find people go for a slighty head heavier racket for singles and a quicker racket for doubles. My recommendation would be a Victor MX80 if you can handle a stiff racket as this will combine speed with power which is a great combination for doubles.

    pretty much on the offensive side, but surely, defensive shot can be played with comfort when needed

    The latest one is the Gosen Shiden, yet to test it completely so no review is available at this moment.

    MX80 sounds like it would suit your style of play.
