Another racket recommendation thread
I know there are plenty of threads like this, so I'll make this short and sweet!
Type of player - I would say I'm more of an offensive type of player.
Type of racket - I prefer one that's more head heavy, kind of along the lines of a NanoSpeed 9000. I used that for a few years and I'd love on that's similar.
Type of play: Mostly doubles.
Weight of racket - uhh..sorry but not quite sure..
Level of play - I would say I'm a little less than a semi-pro
Budget - around 100 USD?
Any other preference -
I was thinking about getting a yonex-imitation racket. Like Apacs or something like that. I heard apacs had a few that were pretty good years ago, but I'm not quite sure anymore. Haven't been following the badminton racket scene as much.
Would prefer if it's not Yonex, because they're pretty expensive. I heard Ashaway's not bad, or Victor. But honestly, not quite sure on all that either.

If you're almost semi pro, just get any of your favourite racket company to sponsor you.

Was that NS9000X or NS9000S?

just a few minutes ago i saw someone with an 'ArcSaber 003' lol. it looked nothing like the 002 and the paint job was totally off compared to other AS series so i observed closely and on the cone was pained 'IKON' and the logo looked like 'iB'
i think if you prefer head heavy, among other things, Apacs Virtuoso Performance (AVP, it's a fiery orange) would fit the bill. right, guys?

Probably the new Jetspeed 8ST would fit best from Victor.

NS9000 and 9900 are even balance rackets, but with aero-friendly frames.
