I consider myself intermediate, i've been playing for 5 years or so on and off, but only casually, i've never played on a club level or seriously.
I typically play a lot of drop shots, i like drives and net kills. I smash at only close to ideal opportunities.
What racket would suit my style of play? I've been playing lot recently and looking for a racket RM200 or less.
mid grade yonex nanospeed or nanoray would be a great racket since you like the fast pace drives, net kills, and seldom smash, and lots of drops. i can conclude that you're more of a finesse player than a power player. i've used a nanospeed 800 and it's a great racket, somewhat head light balance and close to even balance so you do have a bit of power to smash if you have to, but light enough for drives and net shots. it feels great for drops as well. i have not tried the nanoray replacement of it. sorry i don't know how much rm200 is in american dollar but i'll certainly look it up
