    I had a sad experiance with my Carlton Aerogear 900fx so now I'm in the game for a new racquet :O:O

    Right now I have a Yonex Carbonex 7000, and I'm almost considering just using that until I improve.

    However, let's assume I had improved, what racquet would suit my style?

    Dan's style:

    -6'3" (188cm?)
    -170-180 lbs.
    -nice hair cut
    -like to play all aspects of game, my style is whatever is best at the moment
    -can generate a good amount of power (not sure how to test headspeed though)
    -i live in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada... not exactly badminton central... will order off net if there's reasonably cheap shipping etc.
    -will pay up to $200 CDN... I guess...
    -brand not a big factor, don't really wnat much to do with carlton though, and I want to try Victor stuff out actually
    -i play singles
    -ill be playing a couple times a week at least
    -durability is important to me, but balance between durability and control/power would be nice
    -i like softer woven grips that i can hold on to easily


    So my questions are:

    -what racquet(s) could suit me?
    -what is your opinion of the yonex carbonex 7000?

    Thanks ALOT.

    hi tropical mouse my opinion on the carbonex 7000. Rubbish sorry no power in it at all you'd be better off with an ISO 30 MF

    thanks ktom, I bought the carbonex blindly because it was fairly cheap and sortof light and i needed a racquet to play with that night (left other in my locker)

    And yes my smashes are really weak, but I thought it was just me...

    I'll look up the iso 30 mf.. thanks

    i think he meant isometric 30, no MF, it is similar to cab7000, both have aluminium head and graphite shaft. If u want all graphite, you should look at isometric 63 MF, MP22, MP24, MP27 with 63 MF being lowest cost of the bunch. They are all 3U except MP22 (2U).
