    Just get a low end yonex, one with a price that means you can afford do break a few of them, because you will.

    3U personally... although it is said it plays more like a 2u compared with 3u of other series rackets.
    Perhaps training up your wrists is the first thing you should aim to do, and other muscles attributing to sharper smashes.

    You aren't playing that long, so I would recommend something like Isometric 75 MF light.
    I played with that for some time too(long time ago) It's a racket made for guys like you... You can hit the ground or another racket lots of times before it will crack ;)

    At the most an AT300 or AT500. But those are middle-high end racquets there...

    14 year old who's 2 year playing... Then AT500 is bit too expensive I guess. Besides... AT is not really durable, so you should go for isometric as far as I know.
