    I'm planning to get one of these rackets but having trouble deciding which is good at smashing and which one is stiffest to least stiff? Which one is easy to clear? Which one is head heaviest?

    Definitely not the VT70.
    I'd go for the MX70 over the Arc. 10. More power and maneuverability.

    Not only is the mx70 the best deal, but it's also more maneuverable and more powerful. :)

    @ visor & Ambushes

    In terms of Power & Maneuverability, Could you compare MX70 & MX80?
    I have never tried MX 70 before.

    Thanks a lot.

    Never tried the MX70 but i've read on BC that it's simply a more flexible MX80.
    I known the MX80, and it's definitely the stiffest racket i own. Either way, it is very quick, but for beginners-intermediate i'd recommend MX80 would most likely be difficult to handle.

    I'd still buy another BS11 before I buy another MX70 :D

    Why do you prefer the BS11? Also could someone compare an ARC10 to the MX70? Thanks

    Know its an old thread, but I am facing the same question. Have been playing with Arc10 for long and looking at an MX70 now. Only doubt is the stiffness, Some say it is comparable to Arc10, so its ok. Others say MX70 is way too stiff compared to Arc10 and will be equal to BS10(slightly less than MX80). Which one is right? If it is only slightly less than MX80, I wouldn't go for it. But if it comparable to Arc10(a slight increase is also fine), then I would go for MX70. Advise please guys.

    note : Know about the victor dot system for stiffness; but it had only confused me. :)

    I'd get either an MX60 or Kason TSF500. For me over the part 18 months of trying over 20 rackets, these have been the best all-round circa 300mm BP rackets I've tried. There's probably others, but I haven't tried them so can't comment :)

    Going from an Arc10, you'd probably find the MX70 or BS10 the next level up in stiffness.

    Thanks mate... I don't want anything more stiffer than Arc 10. I prefer playability throughout the games; so if MX70 is same stiffness as BS10, then I wouldn't buy that. So its either an MX60 or a spare Arc10 for me.... Mostly MX60 :)

    VT 70 is fast and powerful for doubles and singles as well. Easy on joints.
