Hey i want to guide me what racket should i choose between arc fb arc zslash...see i ve aggressive player style but this week i understood that smash is not the only effective hit in badminton so...i m trying to change my style of game,but this doesn t mean that it is not an advantange to be a heavy smasher.My point is i want to use more technic and less smashes but when it comes the time to smah,use this benefit.

Good post. organized and well thought through.
I have a query about which is the better racket between
1. Muscle power 700
2. Voltric 3
3. Nanospeed 33, 66
4. Arc Saber 001
My game is mostly smashing and baseline shots and also drop shots close to the net from the last box or far back of the court.
Also, are there any cheaper alternatives to any of these?
I'm based in NY, USA - where badminton is a very niche sport - which only asian people know about.
Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

They're both very fast racquets but I find that z slash feels smoother when you play shots. I would personally say z slash because it lends power to you on smashes but it's not a slow racquet when it comes to defence either and because it's even, it fairs well at drives and drops. The arc fb is the same except because of the lack of weight, and hence momentum, to generate power, some people might find it hard to compensate for the missing power. But really, if your technique is good enough and your swing speed is fast enough (if you struggle with that I recommend using a training racquet, which ranges from 140g-180g) then that shouldn't be a problem

Errr... I don't know much about the lower end and not much at all about muscle power in general (I didn't even know MP700 existed <_>') but based on the series listed, I think either Arcsaber001 or Nanospeed (don't know which one, sorry) will be your best bet because Arcsaber is considered an all-rounder racquet so it will help you everywhere and nanospeed you generally just get a very fast response so good swing speed in overhead shots and the precision for net shots. But in terms of smashing, it's all down to practice really. I have two friends; 1 uses Arc10 and the other NS9900 and they can both smash just as hard as each other even though theoretically ns9900 is supposed to be a bit weaker in smashes than arc10

Badminton Central Guide to choosing Badminton Equipment
I like what kwun has posted in this thread (in the opening post- Post #1).
As one of BC's professional coach, I would like to comment on the string tension (as kwun has informed us).
IMHO, most of our BCers have often over-rated our skill-levels; And therefore, choosing higher tensions for our strings.
I would suggest that BCers to try the medium string tension first (which is ranging from 21 to 24 lbs). Only when we can hit consistently from our strings' sweet-spot (centre of the string-bed), then we can move up to higher string tensions.
If we are consistently hitting missing the sweet-spot, then it's best to move down to the lower string tensions (ranging from 18 to 20 lbs).
