    Default racket recommendation for mid lvl doubles players

    Dear friends,

    i've been playing for 5 odd year and using light weights all the way (my current is evo 3 from prince). I wana experiment with something headheavy and have tried N90 but boy did my speed (n my wrist, arms ,shoulder..u get the point) suffer. I'm a hard hitting doubles player but love a bit of deception here and there. Checked out N77 and N55. Do u think is suitable for me? and any other recommendations? thanks!

    I would like to ask you abit?
    Why do you choose Li-Ning rackets?
    Do you accept any other brands?

    What about Apacs? Slayer 88 is 4U and so is the Nano 900 Power (this one is older so might be harder to find). Both light but head heavy balance, so quite good for smashing and the shaft is medium flex, so would not be hard to use for intermediate players ^_^. I've heard good things about the Voltric 70 too. Also 4U and medium flex.

    hiak hiak...thks guys... i tried my friend's LN (90 and 50) and also used lower LN ranges before. like the durability and feel (LN the only brand that never break so far after clashes) or is it just me...hmm..

    anyways i'm just a 5 yr old player thats why need suggestions on other (hopefully cheaper/good) brands too! saw other threads that recommend BP300c and UC2200b. can educate me on the difference between these and N50 (which im seriously considering) pls? thanks!

    If you're used to headlight/balanced rackets don't jump immediately to the most head heavy racket you can find I recommend the N50 or the N77/N77II, all very good doubles rackets. If you want a bit more head heavy, try the N33

    I do agree with Tvbifreak.........
    Since u like Li-Ning.... The rackets that u mentioned earlier of LN's C & B series are what they call very flexible (for C series) and medium flexible (B series) and all C series are for beginners or youth....

    If you're looking for cheaper, I think Li Ning is even more expensive than Yonex! ^_^ Define what you think is expensive?

    Li Ning is definitely not more expensive than YY You can get a high end Li Ning for around 200$, whereas to get a high end YY you need 250$ +

    Just had a look at some online stores. You're right. I always thought LN was more expensive :-)

    But still not cheap

    try at900t 4u, if u can still find it. it is my 1st isometric racquet after picking up badminton again after abt 20 years later. it is a head-heavy racquet, but you don't really feel it's head heaviness while playing. sweet spot is big, frame is aero-dynamic, and shaft is of normal stiffness. generally, it is a very forgiving high-end racquet for mid-high lvl players. try it.

    AT900T 4u is indeed a forgiving racket..
