    Default What racquet would suit my style?

    I had a sad experiance with my Carlton Aerogear 900fx so now I'm in the game for a new racquet :O:O

    Right now I have a Yonex Carbonex 7000, and I'm almost considering just using that until I improve.

    However, let's assume I had improved, what racquet would suit my style?

    Dan's style:

    -6'3" (188cm?)
    -170-180 lbs.
    -nice hair cut
    -like to play all aspects of game, my style is whatever is best at the moment
    -can generate a good amount of power (not sure how to test headspeed though)
    -i live in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada... not exactly badminton central... will order off net if there's reasonably cheap shipping etc.
    -will pay up to $200 CDN... I guess...
    -brand not a big factor, don't really wnat much to do with carlton though, and I want to try Victor stuff out actually
    -i play singles
    -ill be playing a couple times a week at least
    -durability is important to me, but balance between durability and control/power would be nice
    -i like softer woven grips that i can hold on to easily


    So my questions are:

    -what racquet(s) could suit me?
    -what is your opinion of the yonex carbonex 7000?

    Thanks ALOT.

    thanks ktom, I bought the carbonex blindly because it was fairly cheap and sortof light and i needed a racquet to play with that night (left other in my locker)

    And yes my smashes are really weak, but I thought it was just me...

    I'll look up the iso 30 mf.. thanks

    i think he meant isometric 30, no MF, it is similar to cab7000, both have aluminium head and graphite shaft. If u want all graphite, you should look at isometric 63 MF, MP22, MP24, MP27 with 63 MF being lowest cost of the bunch. They are all 3U except MP22 (2U).
