    Hi to all players,
    I'm seeking for helps from you guys on choosing a new racket for myself,
    I mainly play double, less single.
    I'm all rounder~
    Having difficulty in drop and backhand
    I play twice a week
    My budget is below RM600

    Currently using Apacs Tantrum 200 and now im seeking for heavy heavy racket with stiff shaft

    Thanks ~

    sounds like you might want to look at the yonex z-force or the victor meteor x80 from your description ;) or did you do your own research? have any racket in mind so far?

    i tried to swing the yonex z-force(without string and grip) and i felt some pain on my upper shoulder @@ mayb its too stiff for me?
    so far i did some research on Voltric 80 due to the high recommendation from people based on review..
    Dint do any research on meteor x80 ~ izzit as stiff as z-force

    meteor x80 is less stiff compare to vt80 IMO ... havent have any upper shoulder problem compare to the vt80 and zforce (i sprain my shoulder when i swing my friend's vt80, lol) ...if you want less stiff ... can get the mx70 or mx60 ... :p

    if you willing to try something new and might give interest to you. can have a look for the finnex brand. i own 2 of the racket now, a low range finnex titanium300 and high range finnex infinity gold which both give me pleasure in my game play compare to my oldies nano fusion, tantrum200 or even visible hollow 1200. some more the price is reasonable to me as well...

    You might want to consider Victor SW35 also... stiff shaft and head heavy. E Lin is quite a good place to visit. You also can try KD sports at Kota Damansara. From what I know, you can get cheaper price outside compare to getting direct from Far East...

    imo, why dont u invest the money for coaching since u said u have problems with your backhands and drops....
    for me, tantrum 200 already a decent racket.....
    a good racket does not promise any improvement in your technique....

    the tweet is considered the high end racket.

    actually you may try the RKEP Pro9000 or 6000, is pretty good racket. high end racket from RKEP. the price is quite reasonable and cheap (you can go to the RKEP thread).
    the racket has helped me with my backhand and dropshoot.
