Recommendation for a head heavy racket?
Hi guys, kinda new here. Im thinking of getting a new racket. Tried the N90 II and VTZF. Both are rackets that i like. Are there anymore that is somewhat similar to these 2? Just wanna widen my knowledge on these type of rackets. Thanks in advance!

APAC lethal 60. Cheap and good. I'm selling one for 50 sg dollars if interested.

victor has their superwave, thruster, spira, and meteor which are all head heavy as well.
i have just recent acquired a Li Ning n80 and it is also head heavy but swings a bit faster because of the frame design, if you can try it out, give it a spin and see if you like the way it feels when you swing, i like it a lot.

Both VTZF and N90ii are considered as head-heavy but they have different feel overall. You can try the N90 (1st gen) as a cheaper option, it has a heavy head as well.
Into the extreme side of head heavy, get a VTZF, wrap the head with AC182 Tangsten tape and replace the original grip with a layer of thin overgrip... There you go

Thanks guys for the replies! Maybe i should say what I have first. Currently have a 4U SW35 and a BS10. I dunno y, but i cant really generate enough power out of it. It is fast though. I react faster with it than any other rackets. Maybe because its 4U? im not sure.
After seeing all the replies, i tink its between VTZF and the TK8000?haha...still in 2 minds about it.

Can I just say something quickly? Hulkinc, if you're a seasoned player with good grounding on techniques and strokes, then by all means get the head heavy rackets. If not, it would be better to spend the money on a good coach who can correct your smashing technique.
Bear in mind, that your defensive ability will drop as head heavy rackets are difficult for quick maneuvering to block smashes.
My favorite advice to give all players: you are the best racket. No racket is going to change poor footwork or poor technique. Wiser to spend money on coaching and good shoes rather then on expensive rackets.
Happy smashing and stay injury free.

Thanks for the advice watersapien. Im just an intermediate player. Still am working on footwork. I just thought a better racket may help improve on the smashing part bit.

i say start off slow and use what rackets you may have. i didn't even know the sw35 was considered a really stiff racket until i started reading on this forum about the racket. but i trained week after week and after 3 months, i can see improvements and my friends who watched me play also witness similar results...tho only marginally since i'm old, but still, hardwork yields the most improvement in my opinion.
