    Default What would be the spec of a racket for a middle of the pack, all around player?

    For a person who is not strong, not weak either. Doesn't hit fast nor slow. Neither a beginner, nor an expert. Sometimes has the correct footwork and technique, but not all the time. Style of play is very balanced between attacking, deception and defense.

    What would be the spec of a racket for such a person?

    Flex:
    Balance:
    Weight:
    String:
    String tension:

    Flex:Flexible
    Balance: Even-balance
    Weight: 3u or 4u doesn't matter
    String: bg-65 (Keep it cheap)
    String tension: 23-24lbs
    Recommended racket: Bravesword 9/12, any nanospeed except 9000x and 9900,

    I think the Voltric 5 can be a good choice.

    Flex: Medium Stiff
    Balance:Head Heavy
    Weight:4U, 80-84gm
    String: NBG98
    String tension: 23 Lbs

    Medium Stiff, Head Heavy for efficient attacks and clears, being light (4U) you won't feel the head heaviness in defense and so will be maneuverable and make it an allrounder.
    NBG98 for great repulsion compensating an hold type of racquet; best of both worlds.

    The racket should match the player and his style, so here's my recommendation:

    Flex: Flex to Medium
    Balance: Even-Balanced
    Weight: 85g
    String: BG66
    String tension: 24lbs

    If you can get your hands on a Carlton Air Rage Tour or a Vapour Trail Tour, that'll be nice to stick with. Otherwise the mid-range APACS are good too.

    Of the rackets I've tried and/or owned, my votes would be to at least also try out - Victor bravesword 9/11/12 - Yonex NS7700/Arc7 - LiNing TP100C. All these rackets are well worth trying out and represent what I think are really decent middle all-rounders.I wouldn't recommend the Carlton Vapour Trail Tour because it's stiffer than it looks and also has a smaller sweetspot thanks to the 'optimetric' head.

    lol is this a riddle. Is the answer a christmas tree or something? Seriously though I would say the perfect racket for that person is no racket and every racket.

    As others have mentioned, Arc7, Nanoray 700FX, Victor BS12, MX70 .
    Just make sure you bring a digital scale along to the store to get the right weight.
