    10 N 10 in Bras Basah has widest variety of rackets, including the Pro Ace Ti. But Bras Basah complex has generally a good selection between the 4 shops there, I've even seen Thailand Yonex AT800s there (S$200 vs $300 for SP).

    Hower is right, you should be able to find it at 10 n 10. For your information if you are interested, the Proace Titanium Dream's frame is Isometric and I think the tension can go easily to 28 Lbs on a electronic stringing machine. I would have bought that racket if not for the fact that it is Isometric and has gross colour combination (in my opinion).

    Oval - shape rackets need more time to get used to because its sweet spot is smaller. But I can recommend a few light oval shape rackets though.


    Sintec Ultra Light 21- dirt cheap , fragile though
    Proace D.M.S series - superb racket for punching(attacking lobes)

    Proace has many decent rackets, perhaps you should just go down to 10 n 10 to ask around for their opinion on their rackets. I think Proace has one racket racket which is silver in colour , oval shaped and really light. Around 4U or 5U. Ashaway has also a Ultra light racket but I do not encourage it because Ashaway rackets are not able to take high tension.

    when u say dirt cheap, how cheap is it?

    for the proace D.M.S series, wat u mean by good for punching? is it light and head heavy?

    It cost $65 for the Sintec Ultra light 21. The only characteristics on the Sintec racket is it is very light , 5 U. Oval-shaped frame. Think it can take around 24-25 Lbs tension.

    As for the Proace D.M.S series, I think the only model left is the D.M.S 99 which is 3U I think. Similarly it is oval-shaped. The key characteristics of this racket is its ultra thin frame which reduced air resistance so it is extremely nice to play with. Can generate the neccessary racket speed very easily because of the unique composition of the frame. Despite its thin frame , it is still a very sturdy racket which can take knocks.

    And no, the rackets are not head-heavy, I would say both of them are balanced rackets.
