    Default looking for my racket (headheavy and stif)

    I have been looking a racket that suits my play...
    I am a beginner but I like to hit it down and like to play with wrist snap.
    I wish my wrist snap gets good as Coach Lee Jae Bok someday..

    I like to smash, decieve, and backhand clear.

    Generally speaking I am looking for a racket that is repuslive, stiff, and headheavy with high end technology- like victor nano tec, yonex nanotube, yonex titanium, yonex tungesten..

    I am looking for a racket that has all of these specs..

    3U
    headheavy (balance point at least at 290mm)
    stiff (at least stiff or extra stiff)
    square head or isometric(either 72, 76, or 80 holes)
    Box frame or diamond frame or Artery Tec or hexagonal(I do not like aerodynamic head on the side)

    I prefer if the racket has any of these specs:
    compact head size with single hole pattern (76holes or 80 holes)
    shorter grip
    High moduluous graphite T-joint

    I come up with sevral rackets, but none matches exactly what I want.
    Yonex Arcsaber Z-slash
    Yonex Armotec 900 Tech
    Yonex voltric 80
    Victor Superwave 35
    Victor Artery Tec Ti 99 and 101
    Victor Meteor 80
    ...any other recommendation?
    which one do you think matches most with my wishing specs?

    I heard many negative comments on victor spira 21..

    Go for the Yonex VT80. It's the latest and greatest (stiff+head heavy) from Yonex. If you want Victor...can't go wrong with MX80 (extra stiff+slightly head heavy). Never tried the other rackets you mentioned. Good Luck.

    Agree... You can't go wrong with MX80, its head heaviness & shat stiffness feels so nice. It hits the nail on the head..

    I tried VT 80 just for several rallies. The head was very stable with head heaviness and yet very aerodynamic. I gotta try MX 80. Thank you folks!

    It is good that you are able to test VT80 & MX80 before buying it...Your hand & head will tell which one to buy.
    Have fun buying a new racket...

    Many people gives instantaneous reviews on VT80 regarding about the racket being too head heavy and it doesn't suit their play etc, well its very personal and there is no right/wrong answer depending on the amount of hours they've spent with the racket... All i can say is you cannot judge a racket with just a few games with it.

    I'm more of a single player only occasionally i play doubles, i started playing with Apacs head light rackets and i grew and accustom to Yonex head heavy over the years of playing and buying rackets.

    Im just sharing from my experience once you get use to the VT80, you'll never go back to other rackets... Now i'm screwed if i use my old rackets as im swinging/pronating too fast with head light rackets and often hit the rim instead of the sweet spot =(... LOL .... no regrets for me as it has helped me improve my game in social and tournaments...

    you should try the Superwaves 35 on the 4u version since you're a wristy type.

    also i'm loving my SW310, its 3u medium flex and head heavy at the raw balance point but it feels light. great for both snap smashes and full-body smash

    or if you want a little bit of old-skool ness, try the APACS tantrum 200
