    more into defense

    More of a defense player.It is easy to get Yonex so that would be better for me . I went through the entire yonex site to see which one to buy, not the $150 + rackets , but confused on which to buy

    Defensive player ? Then go for the mid-end nanospeed racquets such as.. NS4500, NS6K and NS7K.
    Perhaps you could also consider the lower-end muscle power racquets such as the MP30, MP44, etc.

    You can try any of the MP/NS/AT series rackets. The best overall series for attacking is the AT series because of the heavy head.

    AT 900 Power, At 700, and MP99 are all good offensive attacking rackets.

    For doubles I would stick with AT900 Power, or MP99 since AT700 lacks durability. So a racket clash with a partner might just waste your investment.

    You can try looking for the MP100 or old Ti-10 if you still find it.

    I would have thought MP99 wasnt very durable either o_O

    Racket clash with that one would prolly kill it as well. Its a great offensive racket tho, and I dont have any defensive problems with it.

    Currently using Head Nanofire, its cheap and quite a good double's racket. Slightly headheavy.

    Compared to Armotecs and NanoSpeeds, the MP99 is quite durable from personal experience.
