Buying racquets questions.
Hi guys, I'm new to this forum...have some doubts and queries...hope someone can help.
I seen some apacs racquets, and i understand that their armor power are actually clones of yonex armor tec(after doing some search on the forum). My question is that, for these clones is it true that the racquet cannot be strung too tightly...like 24lb? and does the racquet just break if there are accidental clashes. i have other choices as well...like fleet, proace and bedini brands.
i hope someone can advise which type of racquet is more suitable for me. i smash alot...and i'm afraid these 4u racquet breaks easily. sorry if i didnt phrase them correctly.

Actually,some clone are kinda good(maybe even better )
so there should not be any problem strunging at 24lb(already considered low to me)
Some clone that are lousy will not be able to handle the tension.But i dun think apac break that easily

i'm currently using apac's clone of at700
i strung it up till 26lbs before, no problem, except that the string broke after a month

i see...thanks for the advice. the apacs i've seen got a few models i like...which is
ArmorPower 980 Offensive
ArmorPower 880 Defensive (not sure correct model ornot)
do u recommend this series of racquet for ppl like me who like to smash alot?

Confuse over what racket to buy
i am currently using a Cab 20 special. i want to get a new racket because i felt that this racket is a bit heavy and i have difficulty doing overhead clear and smashes when i am tired, also because my wrist is not strong enough. I look through the site and sports shops and is even more confuse.
i will give yonex a miss because it is more expensive compared to similar range of rackets from other brands.
i am considering
1. victor challenger ti-77, S$100 with strings and new hand grip
2. ashaway MP 99 (clone of yonex MP99)
3. pro ace 868 (i think), a friend's recommendation and its going for S$65 with strings.
anybody has any advise or is there any other models i should use. preferably with a budget of S$100.
i played doubles, recreationally. i like to defend and counter attack by pushing the shuttle to empty space or the back corner when the opponents miscommunicte or when they hit a poor return. i tend to smash only when there is a 80% of winning a point because my smash is not very powerful and smashing takes up a lot of my strength. At the same time i am also working on my drop-shots, especially back hand drop-shot and also trying to improve my back-hand over head returns could only go half or 3/4 of the court.
My net play also need improvement and i believe that control is very important in any game. So my preference will be a racket that gives better control over powerful but at the same time i also need the racket to help me generate power on my smashes.
And where can i buy rackets at a good or reasonable price?Anywhere i can get good stringing?

Also, I think the frequent string breakage might because of the gromments (if near the side), or string pattern (i.e. strings being separated widely).
