    Default In need of new Singles racket.

    Hey guys, i'm searching for a new singles racket.
    Really stuck here :S

    Current Singles rackets : Arc 7, LN N90II, MX80.
    I like all these rackets but i want something new. I've tried a bunch of the other big hits like N90, VT80 but they didn't really fit my fancy. Recently used the VTZF. Felt really sluggish and didn't give me the power increase i expected.

    I would like something with power and maneuverability.
    I do like the Braveswords.

    Considering:
    BSLYD (Apparently a bit head heavy. I like the BS12 but it's a bit too headlight.)
    BS15 (Apparently this BS can pack a punch, but the head shape troubles. I absolutely hate the Arc Zslash.)
    N80 (Same as above, head shape troubles me.)
    MX60 (A more flexible MX80 could be nice.)

    So yeah, any help would be appreciated.

    Super Waves 35 could be good. Or the Lethal 70. BS11 is a possibility as well.

    I've heard good things about the SW35, but i don't want one if the VT80/VTZF can do better.
    As for the Arc10, really didn't like it when i tried it :S

    Choosing a racket has nothing to do with which one can do better on paper for one particular style of play, but rather what your own preferences are. I encourage you to try any of the three I mentioned. Who knows? You might like them even though you didn't like the VT80/ZF, because they're not the same.

    BS series doesn't have enough oomph for singles, much like YY NS series. A heavy 3U MX60/70 can be considered. Or perhaps SW30 or VT70.

    I demo'd one of them and as an ARC10 user it just felt weaker in every department. It felt really quite head light tbh, i really didn't like it at all.

    Btw what about a AT900P?

    I think you should try it out. I tried Armotec 900P and didn't like it but I prefer the Armotec 900T

    Bare in mind they only have the anorexic versions in the UK (aka 4U versions) for VT70 and AT900 ...

    Same here in the US. I played with my 4U 900 again today and yeah, it felt weird, too light compared to my 3U L70.
