    Guys, what RSL racket can you recommend me? When I play Women's Doubles I'm always at the back and as you all know when Mixed Doubles Women always infront. I need a racket that is not too light and not too heavy. It maybe a little bit light but it has a whipping power. Any RSL racket that you can recommend me?

    try 3200 or 7150...

    7150 is a head light racket

    3200 is a balance racket

    and both shaft is medium

    so they are easy to use with reasonable power and control

    ps... remember string high tension...


    i normally do 28lb on bg-65:)


    hope it is help


    special it's price iti s cheap compare the yy top range...
    and my 3200<<not 7150 have been crash with pp yy racket nano, at....
    their racket is gone...but my 3200 (touchwood) they are still here after 2 yrs time...
    so:)

    I'm not sure what are available in Manila. But you can recommend me anything. I'll try to ask for the model at the mall.

    Bought a 3200 two months ago from badmintonhub trinoma for ~P2.5K. You can also try the 7320 (the 3200's replacement). The 3200 is 3U medium stiff and slightly head heavy while the 7320 is 3U medium (flex) and even balanced. If you want to try other brands within the same price range, i suggest you take a look at ashaway and MMOA rackets. Both brands are available at Valencia badminton center (New Manila, QC).

    the 3200 is still available in some stores. try Ralphs in vira mall. For other brands, try the Karakal mtec75 or mtec80. the're not too light and not too heavy and not too expensive. They cost around P2800 with string

    Yeah, X2 Blue is lighter than X2 AP, both have same characteristic.

    What to say, the 2009 version is getting slightly lighter than previous year.

    Though stated as 3U, but doesnt feel like 3U, I feel somewhere around 3.3 to 3.5 , Hahahaha. Could be the balance point matter..........

    9600 very sexy ! 9180 not bad too !
