    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 .

    I had a few bad experiences in the past with Wilson rackets. And to be honest the main reason i bought vertex BLX is because Jonas Rasmussen is using it :)
    But it so far turns out to be much more solid than my previous Wilsons. So i would prefer BLX.
