I'm primarily a doubles player, and I play mostly with an all round style, mostly setting up my partner and playing defense, and attacking when I have to. I currently uses a 3UG5 AS11, and I like this racket but feel it is too slow for doubles play. I'm looking for a 4U racket and I've used both head-heavy and head-light ones, mainly the VT7 and the NR700RP. I'm looking at either the VT80, VT70, or switching to Victor and getting a MX80, MX90, or BS LYD. I prefer stiff rackets, as I've gotten used to the AS11, but I've heard quite a few horror stories about both the stiffness and head-heaviness of the VT80 and MX80. What would you suggest?
VTZF II 4u is definitely faster than Arc 11 if you make a big swing. But to think of improving the defending and net playing beside attacking, the others 4u Voltric or Arc FB, Nanoray 700->900 should be a better choice
vt60 has a flexible shaft, not what the OP would want.

maybe because the as11 is not as stiff as you think, i generally switch from my nr800 to the as11 because the as11 is more forgiving as well as more flexible. i think either nanoray700s would fit your needs
