A taste for intermediate rackets?
Has anyone else reverted from higher-end rackets to find they like cheaper rackets? I break lots of rackets... I don't mind buying rackets for cheap, but am I missing something now?
Wilson Super 9000-2009 (low end)
Yonex Muscle Power 7-2009-2010 (low end)
Winex Oxygen 3- 2010-2011 (USD~$70)
Winex Cool 100- 2011-2012 (~$70)
FZ Forza No. 1 Denmark- 2012-2013 (~$150)
FZ Forza Ti-9000 CNT- 2013-2014 (~$180)
Winex Kevlar Power 555- Now (~$90)
Winex is known to be good value but WHY HAVE I BEEN WASTING MONEY ON EXPENSIVE RACKETS? If I had stuck to Winex I would have saved $250... Does anyone else have this problem? Is this a problem?

I don't understand how you are breaking a lot of rackets. Clashes, treating them poorly?
The best value are the middle intermediate rackets. The high end are for bragging rights, mostly. So and so uses this or that is top of the line so it's the best, etc.
It's not a problem to like intermediate rackets. It may be a problem of why you break so many rackets, though.

Sorry, I've broken two of those rackets: Winex Cool 100 (broken on my friend's head but now he's okay) and FZ Forza No. 1 Denmark (?????). I still own Wilson Super 9000, MP7, Oxygen 3, Ti-9000 CNT, Winex Kevlar Power 555, using the latter 3 in play.

Me too, but not because of too many broken rackets. I just feel that most high-end rackets from high-end brands (Yonex, Li-ning and Victor) are wayyy overpriced. We get about 80-90% of those rackets performance for <50% of their prices, why not?
Besides, rackets only count for <10% of your performance on the court. The rest, 90% is up to how well you play and how physically fit you are.

even 33% of price in my case $70 for Winex Kevlar Power 555. Winex intermediate rackets are claimed to be same technology at a fraction of the price but is there any drawback really? I am not strong enough for a VTZF or NS9900

If u feel that u play terribly then u need better rackets to compensate then u are mistaken. What matters is that u must be comfortable with yr racket and can manouver it as best as possible to improve and enjoy the game.
Well, still it's up to one's own preference whether to buy n use whatever they please.
