Thread: racket recommendation

hi, hope you guys will spend some time reading this and give some idea about it.
I found a problem of myself recently. I have 2 rackets currently, one is [2U]X, a stiff + head heavy racket. And the another one is a [3U]N50, a more balanced racket.
I play single most of the time. But sometimes double too, while doing this training here as the smasher back there. I felt my smash more powerful with the N50 compared to X. However, i felt my singles game more comfortable with the X compared to the N50 because i felt the racket is too light for me. Which means that i'm more ''all-round'' with X compared to N50.
My friends did recommend me to go for more balanced racket as they say i can apply greater ''force'' to the racket compared to X. But in singles game with my N50, i can't apply that force that i have applied during the training into the game. So, should i go for a balanced racket or should i stay in the stiff + head heavy racket area.
P.S. I'm not getting a new racket unless I'm really craving for it.

Do you need a new racket? Sounds like X is your singles racket and N50 is your doubles racket?

No definitive answer on this. Its what ever racket that compliments your game.

singles require stronger emphasis on the forehand strokes
doubles require stronger emphasis on the backhand strokes
you might want to look into shaft flexibility for a start. perhaps borrowing someone's head heavy medium/flexy shaft to see if it works for you

if there is no demo program available, try swapping rackets with people you play with just to rally for a few shots to get the feel of it. of course string tension and thickness affect the feel too, but at least you swing a different racket and get the very general idea of what another racket feels like.
