    I've got quite a few Carlton's, and they're all pretty good performers.

    Started with the Fireblade FX8, then the Airblade and the Powerblade and the Vapour Trails came into my collection.

    Probably like the Fireblade's performance above all else, but I have admit that the Carltons just seem to fall short when you pit them against powerhouses like Yonex and Li-Ning.

    They're great rackets, but when I want to up it another notch, I'll probably reach for my Voltrics or ArcSabers.

    This is mainly due to the price hike by Carlton UK when introducing their "innovative" Razor and Kinesis series. I think they have got their marketing wrong as they thought the previous Powerblade/Fireblade/Vapour Trail series have brought them back to life. But that was due to a good combination of lower prices and relatively good performances with those series. Considering that I am paying over 120quids for a racket, I would always go for a Yonex, which, at least, is made in Japan. Carlton will have to be something very special to compete at the price bracket.

    By the way, that Newcastle FC owner also owns Dunlop/Wilson/Slazengers as well.......

    I've used carlton before (Fireblade series) and after some Yonex, SOTX, Kason and Victor I am now back to Carlton (Powerblade Elite).

    Great rackets for a great price. Sure you can find something better, but not for the price I got them for (they were on sale as "old collection" Think I paid like 50 euro a racket). I haven't tried out any of the "new and expensive" collection.

    the powerblade is a great racket with their price. But the top range just too expensive here.
