    I want a racquet from Yonex, Carlton and Black Knight. From Yonex I want the Muscle Power 55, from Carlton I want the Airblade 2000 and from Black Knight I want the Rapier Pro. Which one should I choose? Thanks in advance!!

    I'd say get mp-55 or rapier pro.. i tried them both.. and like them both havn't tried any high end carltons though. Rapier is a good racquet. MP-55 requires lots of strength so unless you have strong arms this racquet will tire you out. MP-55 gives great power and decent control. Manuverbility is decent. Oh yea i just remembered, this racquet (for me) took about a week to get used to. The muscle power requires muscles ! However, rapier pro is also a really good racquet in my opinion, I played 1 game with it and it felt great.

    If u dont have a good wrist then dont buy th AB 2000! But if u have one then u are the man at the court with that racket! I have had 3 of them! Mp 55 is a slow head heavy good racket fro singles! If u want to play doubles then carlton gives u the amazing advantage!

    True. I find racquet doesn't move as easy because too heavy.

    Partly true
    But preparation has a lot to do with it. Try preparing for the shot fractionally earlier.

    What BN said was partly true as well. But you never know, the VF series could suit a pro player, it all depends what you like in a racquet.
