New Racket Recommendation
Hi L&G and all Badminton Pros, Thanks for viewing.
Appreciate you guys could give some advise or recommendation on my new coming racket. In my mind, i would like to have either VT Z-Force or Arc10 or AT900T. I played single and sometimes double. I like to smash as well as defensive. My current racket details as per below:
Brand : Prince Classic 8000ti
String : BG66
Tension : 26 lbs
Specs : I don't really know either it head heavy or light and also 3u or 4u (Since i bought it from friend)
would this cheap racket has so much different compared to those hi-end yonex racket in term of handling. and it will cause me too much time to get to use with it?

u like to smash?? better u try voltric series,, and for me VTZF is the best choice.. or u can try VT9 or VT80 first, before change to VTZF.. bcoz VTZF extra stiff,, better to feel stiffer shaft first before change to extra stiff..

go try it out.. borrow from ur fren.. go to shop.. and stop listen to wat ppl said..
ppl might said it is good but it wont suit u sometime.. while wat ppl say not good might sometime be ur best weapon..
for example.. victor bs10.. all my fren said it is no good.. hard to use.. etc.. but end up to b the best racket i ever used..

u need a good smashing,at the same time good defending racket? get a 4ug5 voltric 80 ,nanospeed 9900. and strung at 26lbs with nanogy 98. if u r a hard hitter like fhf(i mean it!),just get a kason f9. it solves all ur problem! =D

First of all, how do you consider your style of play as well as your skill level? If you consider yourself as an advanced player, go for VTZF. Z-Force has all the potential you need for speed & power. But keep in mind that this racket is not for everyone. Otherwise, you can go for Arc-10. It's quite a good but user-friendly racket for beginner - intermediate players. Good luck!

every hh racket is hazey when it comes to defense unless you have a string wrist or forearm strength,then its a different story...i had a 4ug5 vtzf and its just magnificent! vtzf is most probably the most head heavy racket ever produced by yonex...so...i just dont recommend you to go for 3u zforce because..its really tiring if u r using a 3u zforce for fast game like doubles.. in doubles speed is power,yet u need control,and that is why i said...vt80 / zforce 4UG5 is all u need..they r forgiving yet unleash powerful performance by the time u really used to it.....marthias boe used voltric80 in 2013 korea open,rather than using his old weapon ,the armotec900... its all up to ur own styles of playing....if u have the strength and stamina....u can go for some stiff racket like victor's mx80,mx jjs, yonex nanoray 700rp/fl , nanoray 800.....=)

u can watch how mohd ahsan of indonesia used his nanospeed 9900 when playing against korea....his smashes are immaculate and really2 fast! go youtube,see mohd ahsan from indonesia when playing against korea....u will know what nanospeed 9900 can do...i had one but cracked because i had a clash with a newbie at 28lbs,which is a bit over-strung as the racket stated maximum u can go is around 24-25lbs only. thats the problem with yonex,however it;s not a problem when u get the right stringer......i can see from ur statement u said that u r 26lbs player,then go for a 4ug5 zforce.... i personally recommend nanospeed 9900,zforce and arc 10 at the last. i had an arc 10 also,string at only 24 but still it can perform very well...
