    The Victors you might consider. Around my area, they are a bit cheaper then Yonex. For doubles, the BS12, BS LHI, the MX60. The last two are also very nice single racquets. I play with the MX60, i only regret the color scheme wich I don't find attractive.

    I'm just curious, is getting a 4U Z force for doubles like ridiculous? Do any pros or in general do people use it, or am I just going against the grain with it?

    The reason I don't want a Vicyor bravesword etc. is because it's like $150, which is only $50 more than the racket I have already. (victor Super nano 3)

    I want to get a $250 racket because this will be one of my last purchases most likely. I want a racket I can use for the rest of college. (2more years)

    Koo and tan use the zforce for men's doubles

    Btw a $250 racket isn't necessarily going to last longer than a $150 racket

    Not ridiculous at all. I personally use both the 3U and 4U Z-Force, and I mostly play Mens and Mixed Doubles. For me, the 3U is better (can't pinpoint exactly why it's "better", and that's likely because it's psychological hehe) but only because I am most familiar with it - I've been using it for nearly a year, while I've only used the 4U for a couple of months.

    Yikes! Where are you in BC and where are you buying from?
    For that price you can buy at the store.

    I live 4 hours away from Vancouver. I was buying online from Badminton Warehouse. It's actually cheaper than my local Sportchek. (their price is $269 + Taxes + it's frame only.

    Honestly I believe Z force is purely purely just alot of raw power. Z speed I found to be very easy with the drop shots and back hands, all the fancy shots. The Z speed is a bit lacking power compared to the z force. depending if you are the tank or the one who sets the rallly going.

    I had both zf and zs and both 3u. I mainly play doubles. As for zf, I'm using it when I'll be the one who played rear court more since partnering with someone who is better at the mid/front. Clear/smash/drop shot feel more solid but definite with some sacrificing when comes to defense. And for zs, when I'm partnering with someone who is a real hard hitter and able to smash like crazy since I'll be playing a much faster pace from covering mid and front court. Hitting smashes and drives with zs it's really nice and it sound crisp and clear and it's really fast. It's kind of like a rocket launcher (zf) and a laser gun (zs). Well, it really depends on your playing style. But if you want something really all round, arc11 will do the job nicely. Zf head heaviness it's not an issue but the stiffness is (unless you have tested extra stiff racket before) and it's really a solid racket. As for zs, it's not exactly headlight. It's more even balance with a little head heavy but you wouldn't feel it when swinging because of the smaller frame size and make kind of faster. So, the choice is up to you. If you have a fast and powerful swing speed, go for zf. If you have precision timing and accuracy in your swing, then zs is the one. If you are more balance in both, go for arc11 (I have broken mine and missing it ).

    There are other much cheaper places to buy online.

    Like mybadmintonstore.com or from rkep eric on ebay.

    And btw I second and highly recommend 4U VT70, which has normal size head and is less head heavy and less stiff than VTZF. Much better and more manageable for doubles of your level. The ZF will be a big jump in stiffness from your Nano racket.

    Thanks visor! I just checked out Eric on eBay, he's selling for $200, +$30 shipping and probably $15 more in Customs.

    I've almost completely decided to get the 4U version!

    Could you guys tell me what string to get, and what tension? I've never actually known about the tension thing, so I have no clue!

    Thanks a lot, appreciate it!

    So far I haven't had to pay customs... fingers crossed...

    What strings are you using now? If possible, what's the frequency of your stringbed?
    And are you playing plastic or feather birds?

    Er damn, I mis-read your post. You're recommending the V70?-.-

    Why are there so many optionssss.

    I'm tempted to just start another thread. I just want the best doubles racket. Is that the V70?

    I have no idea what my string tension is, it's just default, I think that's 20? Whatever the store strings it at officially.

    Also I play feather only.

    Well... are you a muscular guy? How much do you weigh? If you're strong, you can easily wield a 4U ZF for fast doubles play.
