    i have been playing rec for a year.

    which would be a high quality defense racquet. my strenghts are court quickness and blocking smashes. weakness is good technique on smash/clear

    so.....should the racquet be head light and the shaft be flexible?

    are you more of a singles player or a doubles player? if you can answer that question than I can suggest a few racquets to you.

    If you are a real defensive player... (like me) I recommend you a light headed racquet... because of its maneuvrebility....
    something like the Yonex Titanium Swing Power SR-version or SA-version..

    If you are defensive and a more of a doubles player, than get the Iso Ti Swing Power SA and if you are a singles player, than get the Iso Ti Swing Power SR.

    Strangely enough, the MP80 is rated as a defensive (receiving) doubles racket and not a offensive (smashing) doubles racket even though it has a head heavy balance. It's also medium stiff, not extra stiff like the MP100.

    Look at the graph at the bottom right of this link.

    x axis = left side means more for doubles, right side means more for singles.
    y axis = bottom means receiving players, top means for smashing players.
