    Well, that's really down to what sort of player you are. Give me some information on your ability level, playing style and what racket you use now and I'll do my best to tell you whether you should bother buying one.

    If you're an attacking player, I would recommend either the Yonex Armortec 700 or Muscle Power 99. A SOTX Woven 2, 8 or 11 would also be suitable. From Karakal, I would recommend the MTec 80 or 85. Those are just a few rackets that may be suitable for you but I would strongly advise you to try them first. They are of varying price ranges because you didn't give a budget so I hope you'll find one that is suitable. Although I am sure there are some perfectly good Slazenger rackets out there, I've never found one.

    OK, so you're on a very limited budget. Using a currency converter, I have worked out that 3000 PHP is equal to around £43 (GB) which is a limited but workable budget for a racket. In the UK, you could get the Karakal MTec 85 for that and with a little extra (a couple of GBP), you could get the MTec 80. Both are awesome rackets and well worth buying.

    I think the MTec 80 is rare I can hardly see any. because almost all of the rackets in the Philippines are mostly yonex types. even the slazenger rackets are rarely sold in the shop/stores but thanks.

    I've borrowed some of my friends' Slazenger rackets to try out. I'm not sure what models they are. They seemed sort of mid-range so perhaps within the sort of budget you'd be looking at. They weren't bad - you could play with them quite comfortably and they had an OK feel to them, I just think that you could do better for the money (in the UK at least).

    I'm going to suggest you try the Slazenger racket you're interested in and if you like it, buy it. If not, take a look at the Karakals I have suggested.

    but its impossible to test a unsold racket since it has no stings yet so i need to buy it and test it.
