need a new racket HELP?!
So i have been using my Ashaway superlight t5 sq for about two years now; i enjoy playing with it, but think that i am due an uprgrade. i am 16 and have been playing at county level for about 4 years so i would say i am intermediate, maybe advanced at a push. I play 70% doubles and 30% singles. i am looking for a racquet that is could for control and fast play, but can also pack a slight punch. i am currently looking at the new arcsaber fb and the z-slash. (also i cannot trial any racquet only feel in a shop etc.) the racquet can cost any price really but probably about 100+ thanks.

Hi, your message box is full.

first i would ask what you don't like about your current racket and why you think you're ready for an upgrade?

i dont know about your current racket, but looking at the price, i can say it's a decent racket....
but for me, 75g is too light for me....
if you want a fast and good control racket, i can suggest arcsaber 11 and voltric 70....
im using voltric 70 and it's a very all round racket, good for attack, control and defense...
a bit head heavy but very maneuverable....
dont try arcsaber 11 yet, but yonex arcsaber is made for control and fast play....
if you want cheaper option, apacs tantrum 200 maybe another good option....

mainly the flex because i have tried rackets that are stiff and i can generate a ton more power.. also soomething abit more heavy and a even balanced that maybe is a little head heavy

i know vt70 is not stiff as vt80 and others, but you just said about fast racket....
i dont think vt80 is fast racket unless you have a very strong arm , it is quite heavy(at least for me, need more training).....
how about Victor BS LYD??

Have you tried any Carlton racquets?

a lot of timing issues i heard about people who changed to z-slash....
but not for z-force, maybe the head is very heavy....
z-slash is 3U in yonex, that would be 85-89g...
i dont know the exact weight, but there is possibilities z-slash more that 85g right....:-)

arcsaber 7 seems appealing; anyone know about this racket?

country level means you are pretty decent player.
i'd skip the ARC-FB as you will break it in around a week.
if you want Yonex, something like a ARC11/ARC10 if you like medium balance / all around.
