    Default Choose a racket

    Hi, please help me find the good racket. My level is almost intermediate. I'm looking for Racket that can do an effortless Clear from backcourt (important), good smash, good control. Not expensive, below $100. Prefer Isometric head but I want to know some oval head that suit my criteria too. How about MP series MP33 or MP 77? or any better?

    if its hard for you to do a clear from back court, its not usually the racket's problem (unless you're using a $10 racket) but its probably something to do with your strings and string tension. (or most probable, your technique) what racket do you use currently? that might help with people giving you suggestions about getting a new racket. personally i think, under $100, MP 22-28 are all pretty good. its all personal preference tho

    cheers

    My racket is fake Toalson ( I think) and it's flexible. In my country MP 22 - MP 77, Carbonex series are below $100. Is there any of rackets I've mentioned, meet my criteria?

    For around $100 USD, your best bet would be the Cab30MS. Although it's consider as a mainstream racquet according to Yonex, many here feel that it belongs to one of the top and greatest racquets Yonex ever made.

    the MP 22-77 range are all pretty good rackets.. i sugget you try each out, and make your decisions on that.. because everyone is suited for different types of rackets, my choice might not be your choice. also string tension affects your shots too, so dont judge a model by the strings

    you can't really say that because everybody is different.. what someone finds great, someone else might find extremely awkward... for example i probably wouldn't choose an oval head racket like Cab 30ms.. but some people will

    some people on this forum will definitely say that Ti-10 is the greatest racket Yonex made, some people will say MP 99, even others would say AT800DE, or anything else.. its all personal preference

    Yeah, I know there isn't any racquet that is quite "perfect" and these things vary as people have different taste. See that's why, if you read my advice carefully you'll see that I said "MANY PEOPLE..." and not all. I also did not say the Cab30MS is the top & greatest Yonex racquet, but instead stated that may people "FEEL" that it is "ONE OF THE TOP & GREATEST RACQUETS..."

    true, you said "many people" and "one of the best" and stuff.. but ur first sentence is still straightforwardly suggesting him that the best racket for him would probably be Cab30MS

    the ironic thing, is that someone was complaining about this cheap alumimum/graphite techno racquet with oem techno strings... probably around 100-120g. i found it to be quite easy to clear with that thing. much easier than the lighter 80-90g racquets we use regularly.

    Yes for his price range, the Cab30MS, to me, stand out more than the other racquets that you've mentioned. I'm sure all the MP-2x series are fine and all but overall we have come to agreed that the Cab30MS is better.

    But this doesn't mean that he'll like it better than the MP-2x. This is it's called a suggestion/recommendation. We don't know if he'll like a $100 USD dollar racquet better than a $70 USD racquet.

    your right... we dont know what he would be more suitable for.. but i dont think overall we have came to agree on Cab30MS being better than any of the MP series either some people might think its horrible compared to the MP series, some people might think its great..

    Now, when I say "we agree" I'm basing it on what I've heard and seen. I think it's safe to say thet there are more reviews and recommendations for the Cab30MS than any of the MP 2x racquets. Since it is popular and more people recommend a certain product, I'm guessing that there must be something good or special about it.

    I don't own the Cab30MS racquet yet so again I'm just basing all of my opinions on what I heard and seen from other people.

    If you are flaming me because I was recommending a specific thing then I can turn it around and flame you for the same fault with the MP lines. There are also other great racquets from the Carbonex, Isometric, Titanium, Armortec lines but I thought when people ask for recommendations they want something specific.

    sorry i didn't mean to flame you in any way... it was just that you seemed to be going too specific with the Cab30MS.. im not saying it or anything else is a good or bad choice, because we dont even know his playing style, we cant say anything about what racket he is supposed to get.. hope you understand

    Yeah that's why it's called a suggestion/recommendation. Noticed that I used suggestive terms such as would, overall, etc...

    I think the person would appreciate it if the recommendations are more specific. I could have recommended him to a few other ones too but I know when I'm shopping around I have enough headaches already just looking at 3-4 similar products. So imagine having to decide between 10 different racquets from each of our recommendations. I don't think that'd very helpful to him. He probably wouldn't ask for another advice from this board again if that was true.

    you're right.. we should give him a few recommendations.. but if he goes and gets Cab30MS (or any other racket for that matter) and then one day trys out a Ti10 or somethin and goes "hey i like this racket way better, i wasted $100 for nothin".. then he probably wont ask here for advice again hahahaha

    anyways... i suggest/recommend that you try different rackets.. borrow rackets from friends and try them out.. and then maybe come back for some more opinions about the rackets that you yourself have narrowed down to

    Yeah see, those higher end ones are beyond $100 USD which is out of his range. Otherwise I'd recommend him to some of my few favorites that I have and like such as the MP-99s, MP-100s, AT-800DE, Ti-10. I think you forgot about his price range.

    That's why I still stand with my recommendation. I think the Cab30MS is overall the better racquet than all the others for about $100, granted that we don't take performance/price into consideration since I haven't got a chance to try all those other racquets below $100 USD yet. Even so, the Cab30MS does have a good performance/price ratio performing almost at the level of the legendary MP-99 for half its cost. Now if that's not a good thing then I don't know what is.

    If you meant to say that he should demo the racquet first then I whole heartedly agree since everyone likes different things. These recommendations only helps to narrow it down to a few to make it easier for him to demo and try out.

    im not forgetting the price range.. just saying that he could end up regretting not putting in another $30 for a much better racket.. there's nothing wrong with his price range.. but he still should have some kind of comparison... a while ago i bought a MP55.. and kinda regretted not shillin out another extra $30 for a high end racket.. and ended up having to rebuy a new racket

    edit: anyways, i think we should stop talking so much and let him have his say first.. otherwise it'll be a LOT of repetitive reading for him to do first thing in the morning tomorrow
