    I am wondering, between these four rackets which one is best for me. I'll just tell a bit about how I play. I am a hard hitter, i like stiff rackets, and am aggressive player. OK the rackets are a Victor Power Wave 11, a Black Knight PC-V65,a Forza ti-28, and a Yonex Amortec 800 Defence.
    :D Thats my question plzzzzzzzzzz help. O and srry if i have bad grammer.

    SOTX Woven 8 is a really good racket that is even balanced. It is a stiff racket, but I find it not too stiff and you can find it for way bellow 210 canadian.

    Yonex Cab30ms is what I have. Any of the Yonex Cab is (model number in double digit) good choice and not too expensive.

    I think that the high end forza rackets tend to feel a bit too stiff. I've played a lot with the fz ti-24, and it's quite demanding. On the other hand, one of the best rackets i've played with is the one called kevlar-11. It's a very light racket, but not too stiff compared to the weight. I find it very easy to produce power with it. I would suggest you try it out if you can.

    But, as the earlyer posts state. The At-700. I find it to be an absolutly amazing racket.

    What's the price, weight, balance & stiffness of the Forza 28ti? This info might help people recommend other racquets for you to try.

    The Woven-8 is the same weight, balance and stiffness as that Forza. You can also get it at around $100CAD less than that Forza. If you can't find a W-8 to try, see if you can try an MP99. Some people say the MP99 plays like the W-8 but is just a little stiffer.

    -you tried 12 rackets,
    -and found one you like best

    what's stopping you?

    Perhaps it's not red or shiny enough?:p

    I would say to go for it, if you like it and you have the money. Inevitably, rackets that play like it, will not play like it, if you get what I mean.

    Oh, and out of curiosity. Since you rated the NS 7000 a 9/10, just like the Forza, what's wrong with it? Perhaps you've become tuned in to the lack of durability expressed by some of the members?
