    Hi guys,

    I am curious to know what kind of racket you like. And maybe why.

    1. Head-heavy
    2. Even balance
    3. Head-light

    I personally like a even balanced one. Quick movement around court, dun lose in control yet gives me the smashing i need:D. Head-heavy is just too straining on my strength gets too tired very quickly:crying:. Head-light simply just dun give me the smashing power I need:(.

    Hi,

    i would prefer to have a little bit heavy head racket then a well-balanced one.
    As i am a bit more to attacking, a bit heavy head will give a different smashing power. Thks.

    My preference right now is something that is below HKD 800 and offers plenty of graphite. The Ti-10 fits perfectly.

    I personally prefer a little head heavey to even balanced since it better in defense.

    Any preference for either head-heavy, head-light, or even-balanced racquets will to a certain extent be affected by the weight of the racquet. For those who like head-heavy racquets, just try playing with one that is a 2U with an overgrip. For those who like head-light ones, try one that is a 4U weighing no more than 83g. An evenly-balanced racquet will not handle so well if it is a lightweight. Any preference for each of the 3 categories is to a large extent dependent on the ultimate weight of the racquet.
