    Yes, you do indeed have a group of rackets. What kind of opinion do you want?

    You need to be more specific. Compared to your favourite racket, what do you want more of (power, control, feel, speed etc) and what are you willing to sacrifice?

    A good racket, that will help me improve to the next level In 2015.

    The racket I am using now is a nanoray 100

    I guess I don't need to smash.as hard all the time because there are guys at my club who have no power but amazing shot placement

    The apacs virtuoso performance is a very good racket but sometimes takes a while to adapt to. It's very fast for defence but still has good power.

    IMO you have a great pool of different rackets. I think for everyones liking you have a good racket. You don't need a new racket to improve. I would try to spend more time on the court, play against stronger and various players, try different strings and tension, do footwork and other drills and try to get a better physical fitness. Tbh you don't reach higher levels with a racket change.

    rackets don't help you improve. never have, never will.

    I snapped my nanoray through the head,
    What I. I mean by helping me improve is, something light enough to play a variety of new shots. yet powerful enough to smash

    That narrows it down all rackets since graphite. Do you want more head speed than the NR100? Or more power? or similar? If similar just get another NR.

    Light weight but head heavy.

    Nanoray 500 is more headlight according to yonex's chart. You're already towards the HL end so there's not much choice for you

    All three are good rackets, the LF7400 lacked power for me but I prefer rackets around 84-86g usually. The Yx3800 is a good all round racket but the AVP would be my choice out of those three.
