Hi! I'm playing for about two years, I was playing mainly with Voltric 5 (it broke few weeks ago), now I'm searching for a replacement. I was attending for lessons (1.5-2h per week with coaches (former national players)) and a small local league (2h per week). One year ago I started playing with balanced (maybe even head-light?) racquet, I liked it at start, I was very fast near net, but after a one month i realised my smashes were not so deadly :/ (I think there was an article at this site with exactly the same observations: http://badminton-coach.co.uk/4520/what-do-you-think-about-when-choosing-a-new-badminton-racquet ) I tried a few racquets for last month, for example: victor light fighter 7400 from my friend, it was very light and nimble but still HH and I was able to smash as I like. However I think it's a little too light and too expensive (very) That few tests give me some thoughts about my likings, Friends say my style is aggressive and fast (and I dont play doubles) I read Victor Thruster K6000 review, it looks like racquet for me but still, way too much expensive. So now I think I need racquet something like head-heavy, a little lighter than VT5, I don't know anything about stiffness, so I think medium will be fine. It looks like Voltric 7 could be a good choice, HH and a little lighter than VT5 (VT7 is U4 vs VT5 U3). What do you think about that? Any other racquets? I will have some access to used racquets from national players (thru my coach), they're using Babolat equipment.
