I'm a high school student playing on the varsity badminton team for 2 years and I'd consider myself a novice/intermediate player. I still have yet to buy my own personal racket, and I don't want to buy a cheap $20 recreational/backyard playing racket but I'm no where near professional where I need some $80+ racket. I'm not a power player, and play more comfortably with head light rackets. I was searching around the internet and narrowed my choice down to these 6, which I noticed all had balance points lower than 5 meaning they should be more head light? (I still don't completely understand all these racket specification jargons.) - Carlton Powerblade C700 - Wilson Dynasmash 500 - Yonex Nano Speed 100  - Dunlop Tempo Graphite - Black Knight Impulse 729 - Wilson nCode N400  I was wondering if anyone has any input on any of these 6 rackets. Just reading the descriptions they sound good, but I don't know how much of a difference all these "new technologies" like nCoded, nano, hot melt pre preg and etc really make or what they really mean in the first place. It would be great if anyone could explain it somewhat to me. Durability is also a pretty big factor for me... I used a newly opened Yonex Muscle Power 22 Light from my team coach before and the shaft broke in half when the person I was playing doubles with hit my racket. It was sort of mortifying to see the head of the racket flying across the court, especially when the person I was playing basically only tapped against my racket when we both went for the shuttlecock. So racket durability is a pretty big concern for me... I am also open to other racket suggestions as well. Thank you!
