    I agree it helps if you hit off-centered shots

    Optimetric XD Oval for me, purely because of the last few rackets have been hybrids of Iso and Oval to different degrees. I like the better head speed I get with Oval, but there's hardly a difference in the end - IMO.

    Before it's oval but as the saying goes: ''once bitten, forever charmed''. Therefore, isometric it is!

    Isn't it about the right time for the poll to be updated to (1) Isometric, (2) in-between and (3) oval?

    I prefer ISO for more sweet spots. It's physics.

    I have played with both Oval and Iso, i found both the types to be good. I all depends upon u an dur palying style, you just have to get use to it.

    Now and then I have a few problems with hitting the sweetspot when using a iso racket, I am not blaming the racket I know it is my technique.
    So if I use a Oval racket it would probably be worst then a iso.

    i dono iv started on ISO then got a CAB30MS(which has broken recently) but i found i hit the shuttle better with the cab30, maybe due to the fact that its headlight and still generates alot of power.
    So i think im going to switch to iso to see if playing with a oval has helped me. maybe i was just missing so much with my MP23 that it felt bad.(this one is also broken due to being hit buy a car while i was cycling to play badminton)

    So i think my next racket will be Victor SW32, but still need to test it out.

    I am still undecided on the matter. I bought an Ashaway Nano Rally as a spare to my 3 main rackets - Ashaway Viper XT900. I now prefer my Nano Rally over my Vipers; somewhat annoyingly since it cost 30 while my Vipers were 120 each. There is no doubt though that I play considerably better when using my Nano Rally. I am able to generate more speed [and power] whilst hitting fewer off-centre shots. I am unsure as to why, since the hitting area on the oval racket is considerably smaller when compared to my iso rackets. The shaft on my Nano Rally is slightly softer and thus much more forgiving than my Vipers. But that would not explain why I am striking the shuttle a lot more consistently when using my oval racket. I am now thinking of selling one of my Vipers in order to finance another Nano Rally; I like it so much. The specs on my Nano Rally are very similar to the Ashaway Superlight 79 (non-iso).

    30 quid for a racket that you like. Now that is a bargain

    25.00 actually. Well, 25 for the racket and 5 for the delivery. Only a select few retailers seem to sell it. I believe it was around 100 originally, but I think that RRP might be slightly exaggerated; a lot of retailers seem to do that. It's quite a high-spec racket in spite of its price. I've always tended to go for a racket with a stiff rating, however, this has a medium-flex, but I love how it plays. It feels so comfortable on my shoulder. I have placed it on top of my Viper XT900 as a comparison.
