Another racket recommendation thread
I play now with a SOTX Woven 9 but I find it a bit too light and I'm searching for a new racket. I play doubles and singles and I'm a allround player that like to smash when he can.
The brands in my country are mostly Yonex and Forza. There a few players with Victor and Sotx. Sotx is the cheapist and Yonex, Forza and Victor are in the same price category.
Hope you can help me

not sure if they deliver to belgium. Also, the website is in german. ( I am just reposting a link that was posted before by someone else). 80 euro seems like a really good deal.
the super wave 35 is on special.

Really, any of the above mentioned SOTX woven 7, Victor SW35 or Mizuno Tetracross 700 will be quite an adjustment because they are so much head-heavier than the light mobile Woven 9. It will be a fun experiment.
My vote for you is the Woven 7. It is most likely the best value, but in no way inferior to the Victor or Mizuno. If memory serves Head-Heaviness: w7=>SW35>TC700; Stiffness: w7=<SW35<TC700.
Another idea for you --different from HeadHeavy & Stiff -- is head heavy and a bit flexible. I don't have a lot of experience in this segment, but you may find a racket along these lines could give you the power you are lacking with your woven 9 without requiring a huge extra output of arm effort compared to what you've been using. An example would be the Yonex Armortec Tour or AT600 which I have borrowed and enjoyed. Others may have wiser opinions on this.
Best of luck with whatever you choose. Have fun!

BS09 is head heavier but BS12 has the newer technology with a thinner frame overall. You may want to try BS11 as its stiffer, heavier head and has the new tech as well
