    I recommend the SW 35, too or a heavy MX80 (89g dry)
    Why?
    It's pretty stiff, solid, slightly head heavy to head heavy and durable. You can strung it to 30lbs with warranty. I have only good experience with Victor (Contact to Victor).
    I tried the AT900P, Z-Slash, AS10 from the evil empire and the LN N55 (1st Gen) and own two SW35. Out of all racket I would choose the SW35 first or a heavy (89g dry) MX80.
    Just give it a try. It's high end quality. You won't regret if you buy one.

    At least as good as any YY racket, if not beter. But me personally, I use Flypower Warrior 8 for single, it's quite awesome

    haha i'll probably be the only one to recommend the ns9900 but i use it for singles and i find it meets all my needs xD failing that, the at900 technique or power also work pretty well.

    I own an AT Power, and I just bought a NS9900... I must say, that using the NS9900, my clear has become a lot better and easier to swing at the back of the court due to the head-lightness of the racket. The AT Power is better for doubles when you have an easy smash because it has a heavier head.

    victor has equal or better quality than Yonex
    the main thing about victor that it actually cost less than yonex
