    heres my badminton story..

    Iv had a yonex NS 6000 it broke after around a year, than changed to a yonex NS 9900 which is good but not perfect for me.
    I recently bought a Muscle power 15 light (was going cheap off a friend) its a bit to heavy for my liking.
    Ns 9900 seems to light its a 3U and the muscle power 15 is to heavy.

    can anyone suggest a good racket and weight (3U etc ) I was thinking about trying out the victor bravesword 10. but im undecided:crying:

    i play doubles at a good advanced level. cheers T

    Did you like the NS6000 (flexible) more or the NS9900 (stiff)?

    since ns9900 is too light for him (3U) and feels more balanced racket rather than head light, he might as well try the at900t since its a replacement of mp99 which is a balanced racket. its just a suggestion.

    arc 10 is heavy to me but it's a 2u, have you tried the ns9000 stiff or extra stiff. i have both and tho i can't tell the difference, they are heavy enough for power but certainly light enough for doubles. the arc 9 seemed too light and the mp 99 and mp tour seemed head heavy for 3u tho it says even balance.

    To be honest i didnt really notice the difference, i think maybe i play better with the 9900 but im more experienced now :)


    I was thinking about the at900t actually. good you said that :D i think the main problem is i need a heavier racket than my 9900 3U. not to heavy but heavier because the 9900 is very light.
    This means i should try a 2U right ?
