Please help me choose racquets
Hi everyone in badmintoncentral,
I'm new member here and I'm beginner.
But now I would like to play serious so I want to buy new racquet.
My Style Play
- Both single and double plays.
- Want fast racquet
- Some smash, drop, cut (Love to control)
I have played in Armortec 800 Offensive and it's hurt my shoulder.
My choice right now
- Yonex Arcsaber 10 Peter Gade
- Yonex Arcsaber FB
- Yonex Armortec 900 Technique
and I don't know how difference of each one.
so I need help to choose racquets and if anyone have another choice please let me know.
Thank you so much

Exert made a good choice based on your game preference. FB are excellent control rackets but u need to compensate lack of power (from the racket) by good stroke techniques, otherwise u will have a hard time producing powerful smashes.
AT800 Off is very DIFFERENT from FB, my suggestion for such a contrasting change will be to try it out on a court, not just swinging it in the store.

On the other hand I did not notice that u are a beginner. If u are then don't get FB because it will 'spoil' you n makes it difficult to use other regular heavier rackets.
Choose either Arc10 or AT900T, both are good rackets. FEEL each one n decide, its just a matter of personal preference.

FB is a very light racket so u will find most other rackets too heavy n thus 'lazy' to use whereas as a beginner you should somehow strengthen yr muscles by using slightly heavier rackets (Unless u strengthens yr muscles using other physical conditioning methods like weights n wrist trainings).
ARC10 is not really a 'fast' racket, it is geared more for all around play but is undoubtedly a good racket. AT900T should be a faster racket but not as popular as ARC10 (maybe overshadowed by AT900P).
Any racket will do if u are a beginner; racket is only 10% of the game and 90% is the player.

I suggest if you're a beginner there's no point in getting a high end racquet for now, get a low end one , what sautom said any beginner racquet will do so I'm going to recommend you a yonex nanoray 20 even balanced and excels at everything decently.

Even though the Arcsaber FB is really light and good for control due to its lightness.
I think it would be better using the Arcsaber 10 Peter Gade edition
you get both the control and power that you want from the weight of the racket.
