For next Badminton season, I will be playing either Girl Doubles or Mixed Doubles for my highschool team [all depend on my coach]. As a Girl Doubles last year, I mostly attack and never rarely defense. My original racquet was a NanoSpeed --- it was all good for awhile but as I progressed thru out the season, I felt that my NanoSpeed does not have good control or was stable. My goal for next season was to perfect my aim/smash, and driving reflex. I want a racquet that can support this goal. I have found two; the K-Brave & Vertex BLX. Money is not an issue & [from what I heard] I like the Wilson's "shiny-gleaming-flashy" designs idea. Can someone who used either a K-Brave or a Vertex BLX, or have used both before, give me a run down on what is good and bad between these two racquets ? - Which one are better at smashing/driving/dropping/cross-court/clearing[attacking/defensively] ? - Which one can be versatile, switching back & forth between defense/attack, within seconds ? - Last but not least, is the K-Brave [gold] shinier then the Vertex BLX [copper-orange] ? With internet altered images, I cannot tell any differences in color between these two racquets. THANK YOU VERY MUCH & REGARDS .
