xD another personal opinion..according to others thread about doubles, it take about speed and control more than smashes right ? so if you can't make power smash, why don't go for speed and control..but for myself, i use arcsaber 10. it provide me even balance, no doubt nanospeed really give more on control, but i like smashing more than it. xD

so 3 issues are:
Weak smash from poor power & technique
try victor SW37 or BS12 as both are even balance and medium flexible. however, since you're in UK try the new carlton prototype V1.0 someone linked that there's a sale now on sportsdirect for 50 squids from 200 squids since the new razor V1.0 is out :P
since you have a weak smash you shouldn't limit yourself to light head racket, you should try slightly heavy head but lighter (4u equivalent) racket like yonex VT60 or medium entry VT7 as both are medium flex and slightly head heavy and available in 4u.
but really if you play lots of doubles you might need to get used to a stiffer racket from all the flat exchanges :P try NS9900?

my 2 cents is out of the 3 issues you have, only being a defensive style player suits the NS9900. in order to get the most out of NS9900, you gotta have a strong wrist and good techniques because it is EXTRA stiff. unless you don't mind not having a powerful smash instead play a fast pace with flat push type game. not saying NS9900 doesn't have power because it does. you just need to have the right technique to generate it. nevertheless i personally think NS9900 is one of the best doubles racket.

yup, thats why in the long run NS9900 is the racket to get but for the time being, get a "training" racket :P
just been reading, SW37 has quite a bit of punch for a balanced racket but i'd still wanna just buy the carlton prototype since its on sale in UK for GBP50 and it was "worth it" even when it was selling at 200
too bad i'm stuck in MY :S

The Nanospeed 9900 is a suitable racquet.
