    Default Recommend me a good intermediate racket with reasonable price

    Hi guys, could you please recommend me a racket that is at a reasonable price. I have limited options on brands, only Yonex, Li ning, Victor, Astec, Dunlop. I prefer Yonex or Li ning.

    My playing style is a semi-defensive, as i like to play drops shots and love to play around the net, but also smash when there is a good chance.

    I would like either a headlight or an even-balance racket. I absolutely HATE] headheavy rackets as it instantly makes my arm pain.

    So please recommend me a good intermediate racket that is headlight or even-balance. Budget is still unknown So just keep recommending rackets and ill think about it.

    THANKS!!!

    Try Li-Ning Windstorm Series 500, 600 or 700 (head-light) avoid the Windstorm 300 (head-heavy). All the Windstorm series are light-weight rackets. You can also try Victor Light Fighter 7000 but I assume it'll be difficult to get your hands on one as you're from Indonesia.

    Maybe you can give a try for Apac's Tantrum 300 or Feather Weight 300 for medium flex as both should be an ease of use in terms of head light or maneuverability. Or perhaps you could try the all-new NR-GZ? *laughs

    Lining 3D Braid series, Ti310, 320,330 or 350, about 8-900 Rp in sby. Choose the one that feels good on yr hand. 3Never trust written specs, even printed on the rackets.

    Or Yonex Arcsaber 2 Tour (not Arc002), made in Japan, abt same price as Lining Ti3xx series. Light n fast. A bit more expensive, about US$110+, get a Voltric I-Force. Even lighter and an under rated favorite. I used n broke an ARC2 Tour and still using an I-Force up to now. Also still using a Nanoray 800 and other old classic rackets from Astec and SOTX.

    I-Force are 5U, I believe. Just a bit lighter than their FlashBoost but I prefer I-Force because it has more power (at least for me).

    U should get Yonexes online from www.sunriseclick.com. Many of their prices are even better than retail stores in Indonesia.

    For Victor racket, you can try Victor Meteor X60, this is an effortless racket and will further improve your badminton skills and performance. You won't regret for sure.

    Victor MX60 is not that heavyhead, the bp is just perfectly around 295mm. If you follow Victor's racket charting, Meteor series is categorized as an even-balance racket (about the same like Yonex ArcSaber series), you should try yourself to believe how good this racket is for a begineer and intermediate players, please read the in BC forum about MX60 review.

    As for price, Victor's rackets are slightly cheaper in Malaysia and Singapore compare to Yonex. I am not sure why Victor is more expensive in Indonesia, my guess from business and finance point of view maybe it's driven by currency exchange factor (strengthening of TWD, CNY and weaker JPY compare to IDR) and also due to the regional Sunriseclick.com online store strategy, where no physical store located at each countries to consolidate inventory (reduce inventory holding cost), reduce rental cost and other fixed operating costs.

    I believe in future Victor will follow Yonex's strategy to appoint a sole distributor in this region to market their product online, thus will reduce their rackets and other badminton equipments price. We have to wait and see......
