A stiffer and HH racket
My style and current racket:
Current racket: BS12
Type of player: controls the tempo of the game. Wristy player. about 70% wrist, 30% arm.
Game: Mostly men doubles
Style: plays both forward and back. Strength at the front.
What i feel is lacking with my current go to racket: Lacking abit of oomph to my smashes although i can do pretty well with my BS12.
What I am looking for: A back court racket with slighty increase in stiffness than BS12 and the increase in oomph on my smash without losing too much control.
Currently i am looking at F9/ MX JJS/ C7. What do u all think? I am open to other ideas

Victor Thruster K-8000 ...seriously. Although the racket is advertised as medium stiffness, it's similar to VT 80 and enjoyable to play with.

My pick would the the F9. You can look at my previous short review here:

Victor's scale of stiffness doesn't comply with Yonex's racket measurements. For instance, MX-JJS and VT 80 are rated stiff, yet MX JJS is noticeably stiffer.

But the JJS probably feels stiffer cause it is not as head heavy as the Vt-80. I gave the JJS just under 15 hours of play and I could not get used to how stiff it felt.
Although I'm intrigued with the Legend II which is rated 4/5 for stiffness and 5/5 for head heaviness. With Catapult technology it should feel like a stiffer TK8000!
