Help me find a Flex shaft/Slightly Head Heavy Racket
Hello guys, i'm new to the badminton scene and started a few months back at the beginning of 2013. I have since joined my school's badminton team and as you read still in school so I don't have a large budget to work off of. I've advanced quickly or I'd like to think that and I would say that i'm an intermediate player .
Right now, i'm on the search for a racket the is slightly head heavy, has a flexible shaft, and light. All the rackets I have used are headlight rackets and I think that a little bit more weight on the head could really improve my swinging power. I can't stand head heavy rackets that are to the extreme, I just want one that is a little bit above a balanced racket so I could still play good defense.
I'm not made of money either so my budget would be anything less than 100 USD, I can push it a little bit if the racket is right though. I was looking at the Victor Meteor X60 because it had all the specifications I needed but noticed its hefty price tag. Help a noobie out?

The best choice would be XP-80 just send Eric a mail: email@example.com
You can just pick the specs that fits you, I would sugest something like: Wt: 85 Bp: 298
It is a racket that is made to be something like the Mx-60, just a little faster because of a little different frame design.

What do you mean by picking the specs? He custom makes the racket for you?

Sorry for the double post, I don't know how to edit. What is the average balance point for even weight? If I wanted slightly head heavy how much over the average do I go? for example average is like 1000 then slightly head heavy would be 1050?

Looking at the list and reading you wanted a light weight in the first place plus not seeing that 298 85gr anywhere , that 85gr. 295mm sounds like your pick.

Do you know if the racket's shaft is more to the flexy side or stiff side?
