    Default Racket advise please? :)

    Hello,

    Please can you give me some recommendations for a new racket. I am a advance county level under 17, I have a reasonable smash but rely on a good defence, drop shot and good net play. My current rackets are the Ashaway superlight 79sq and the Apacs slayer 99. I would not want to spend more than 100 on a racket and it must be available in the UK. I would prefer head light or even balanced but slightly head heavy isn't a problem

    Thanks for any suggestions

    Tom Darcy

    I play both singles and doubles, but I am probably more doubles orientated

    I see Victor Bravesword LYD for 100 at Central Sports website. That's supposed to be a good balanced to slightly head heavy racket.

    u give quite a broad range

    for yonex
    head light = nanospeed / nanoray series
    even balanced = arcsaber series
    armortec / voltric = head heavy

    see what u want that fits yr budget

    You could probably take your pic of carlton rackets.

    For carlton, if the VT Tour doesn't take your fancy, they don't have too many interesting rackets at the moment.
    Victor's Bravesword 8 should be just within budget and is slightly head-light.

    I don't think BS8 is headlight, and it's not a good racket like the rest of the Bravesword family. If you want headlight to even, go for BS12 if you want mid-flex or BS10 if you want stiff.

    I cannot find the brave sword 12 or 10 in Uk within my budget, does anyone know anything about the Yehlex YX - LJB? I have an Apacs at the moment and am not convinced by their build quality

    Apacs models vary in quality a lot through their different ranges, but I do know that Tantrum 300 and Lethal 70 are a cut above the rest. Dunno about the Yehlex though, sorry. Maybe you could try a new Nanoray? What aspect of the Nanospeed did you not like? That might help us give more informed suggestions.
