    Default Even balance + stiff shaft rackets

    I am looking for a racket with even balance and either stiff or med stiff shaft.I am an offensive player(mostly play singles but sometimes play doubles also).Suggest me some mid range(in terms of price) Yonex rackets to suit my requirements.

    Premium racket, not mid range as requested. Also somewhat head heavy, not even balance as requested.

    Arc 10 should fit the bill. Even balance, mid flex and the price is not at premium level.

    Cab20sp would fit that. Its the most balanced racket on yonex rackets chart and the price is mid range too.

    Might I suggest the Carbonex 50?
    It's not terribly head heavy (mine was barely so) and the shaft is solidly stiff.
    The racket is great, but oval heads are a matter of taste for most people.

    i know someone's gonna suggest Cab20 anytime now, hehehe.

    even balance would be the arcsaber or muscle power series. however, i see the muscle power rackets as flexible rackets and so whatever midrange arcsaber rackets might fit your bill?

    from owning and playing with the Carbonex series, 8600ti, 21, 35, 50, they all seemed to be at least medium to stiff, at least in my hand disregarding what might be labeled. and the price range is definitely not as high as some arcsabers? however, you're stuck with an oval head frame so your sweet spot might shrink a little

    I have shortlisted carbonex 8000 light and isometric lite pro on the basis of what hey felt while I swung them in the shop. But i am sort of confused will they suit me for a long run or not...and also most importantly the shopkeeper did not have its specifications(except the tension and weight specs on the cone shaft).Can somebody help me out? D o u know about these rackets?

    I have tried my friend's Cab 8000 light racket, and it seems quite flex to me, it could either be medium-flex or flex (far from stiff). Other Cab 8000 series rackets have also similar flex. I don't know of any Cab in this series which has stiff shaft.

    As per Yonex 2012 catalogue the ISO Lite is medium flex too. Not sure if Lite and Lite Pro are different models, even if they are, there shouldn't be too much of different in flex between them.
