The ultimate all rounder racket for doubles?
Hi, I play doubles almost all the time. I would like to know what is the ultimate all rounder racket for doubles player. People have been saying NS9900 but I don't want a stiff racket cause I feel I'm not strong enough. Price is not a factor.

IF you believe Yonex's MARKETING HYPE, then it will be a VOLTRIC ...
Since many players today consider Carbonex to be "old fashion" and "out of date" hence will give it a miss, then my first recommendation of Cab 20 will not be a hit ...
Then next best bet ("MODERN" selection) will be Victor Bravesword 11 ....

Kason f9 is a good choice.

I agree with both of the above - Kason F9 and BS11 but would also put the MX60 in to the mix!

What about Nanospeed 7000 also? I think it's less stiff than Nanospeed 9900, but I've never played with it.
Just an idea.

how about NR800?

Since you don't want anything stiff,
Arcsaber 7, Nanoray 700F, Victor MX60 or Superwaves 37.
The NS7000 is an extremely good counter and defensive racket, but IMO lacks the power to be a true all-rounder. The BS11 has the flex you need, but it's quite tall in balance.

How about the Arc i-Slash? or maybe the Voltric 70?

ArcSaber 8DX without a doubt... in my opinion of course!
There is not another more complete yonex racquet I have come a cross in all my years of playing doubles and having tried so many racquets now.
Yes it doesn't have any particular strengths it excels in massively, but if you're looking for an all-rounder, the 8DX is definitely a good place to start... and probably end at.

He does not want a stiff racket and the 8DX is rated as extra stiff. So I guess this one's out of the question

I would also add the Bravesword 12.

Easy ways that I can think of to make this list shorter:
1. Brand preference (luckily for you few brands have not entered the picture yet)
