    Default Badminton racquet recommendations?

    I am looking for an all round racquet for both singles and doubles, I will be going to the North American Indigenous games this July and I just need a new racquet. My current racquet is the carbonex 8400 weight around 91 grams, flexible, g4, strung 20-22 ibs the way I bought it. ive had that racquet for a few years and i came to like it a lot. I consider myself a decent higher intermediate player I have been playing badminton in a club for 6 years. My playing style is all round, plus, I do have powerful smashes so i guess i prefer my racquets a little on the heavier side. Im looking for something I can use in doubles and singles and mixed. I have looked around at reviews and have came to consider the arcsaber 8xd or voltric 80. Do you have any racquet and string tension reccomendations?

    Fe/male?Although it's all personal taste, the 'flexible' rating is not one I often recommend; usually medium is a better solution (though there are always exceptions).

    I wouldn't go from a flexy racket to an extra stiff VT80 one. I'd suggest 4U VT70 or VT60 instead.

    It's not that stiff and the head weight helps it flex but your recommendations are better! I was going to recommend those but she was looking at VT80 my bad

    Then BG65 at 23-24 lbs should be good for any racket.

    Arcsaber 11 is the best allrounder imho.

    There's no way I would advise going from a flexible racket to a stiff (vt80) or extra stiff (8dx) one.

    Even going for a Victor TK6000 is quite a jump considering Victor's stiffness ratings are half a notch stiffer than equivalent rating from yonex. Having said that, you mention you are higher intermediate so your technique should be decent - TK6000 4u is a good shout, as well as meteor x60 (mx60) 4u/3u if you can find it still.
