    Default looking for new racket for my friend

    so, my friend is currently using AT900P, he is thinking to get a new racket (well, I think needs to get a new one too lol)

    IMO, this racket is really not suitable for him, he is so skinny, only 53kgs. he said he is fine with the racket, and looking for something similar to it but faster.

    if I think logically, the next racket that similar to AT900P is Vt80, but he seems interested with VTZF2 (I don't think he can handle it)

    any recommendation? Yonex or victor only. I want to recommend him a victor, but not sure which one has the similar feeling with At900P

    Dont know much bout AT900P. IME, the closest Victor racket to VT80 would b TK-9ooo. In terms of stiffness, it is somewhere in between VT70 n VT80. Its less head heavy than both n swings faster with a more compact head frame.

    I'm with teddy in recommendations. However weight and build IMO do not have a big impact on racket choice. If he has the muscles in the right place as well as the technique and swingstyle that fits a stiff head heavy racket then he is no more as risk of injury than you or I. I used to be around that weight range as well and have skinny Asian arms and wrists but I'm confident enough to handle nearly any racket spec thrown at me. The only long term recurring injury I have picked up is really a sore shoulder from overuse.

    sorry for late reply
    TBH, it doesn't suit him that even makes him change his grip style (he grip the handle like gripping a baseball bat)
    that is why I prefer something less stiff, and maybe less head heavy for him
