    Welcome back to the game bro ....

    For the Gurus here to help you ( i'm not one of them ) , you'll need to furnish them with a wee bit more info ....

    For example:

    - Skill level?
    - Types of games played? (singles, doubles or mixed?)
    - Preference for Heady heavy, Head light, or Medium balance rackets?
    - Preference for Stiff, Mid, or Flexible shafts?

    Thumbs up

    I think the answers on your other thread saying you should look at victor are a good option given your price range

    Yes i agree victor is a good choice for that price range, but it all depends on what kind of skill and play level you are in.

    SGD100 you can probably get a Victor SW310 for slightly stiff or Yonex VT5 for medium flex. Both are slightly heavy head which are ideal for singles. I have both somewhere as backup and prefer the SW310.

    If you want a balanced racket, I'd say Yonex NS990 is your best bet.

    There is always APACS, but you dont get the same torsion control and "feel" as the previous rackets mentioned unless you get the higher end APACS.

    For that price range, you either choose YONEX VT 5 or Victor low end. Victor low end is a great choice. Apparently they make good cheap racket. Highend i will definitely go with VT70. Buy hey, cheap racket can be good with good strings. Always restring your racket to your specification to make it great. Arc saber low spec shud be alrite but not recommended.

    If you're comfortable with price range of VT5, perhaps you should seriously look at Victor SW310 (which I'm going to buy 1 as backup), Apacs Lethal 70/90 (good attacking racket but towards stiff side), or even Tantrum 200/300 (good all round, more balanced). I had VT7 1st gen. before, similar to VT5 but I find it too flex (of cos this is very personal as I'm used to stiff). Victor are quite good in terms of price vs quality ratio, compared with YY. I have MX70/80, SW37 & most recent BS LYD.

    Sorry Novicee, hijack abit , anyone happened to use SW350 before? Any comments vs SW310? Thanks

    As mentioned earlier, you could look at Apacs too, their popular high end models are $100 +/-, like their latest Tantrum 500, definitely value for money.

    i would suggest you to try victor super waves 3250 or 3150... the price is quite reasonable... sw3250 is a flexible racket and 3150 is more stiff... imho,i think low end of victor is better compare to yonex low end.. and the price is ok too

    Well, imho, if you do consider resale value, in case you find what you've gotten is not suitable by selling or trading off, then in general I would suggest stick with YY, Victor or Apacs. They're models are more widely used.
