    There are rackets that are easier to clear with(I mean truly effortlessly, and there are rackets that I can clear with, but it takes more energy to do so). When playing a singles tournament, it is advisable to have a racket that is easy to clear with so that you will not tire out before your opponent does.

    I've personally had the MP77, and it is recommendable for it's easy of clearing and devasting smashes. However, it is on heavy side, and will be slow for defense in doubles. I don't have experience with MP33, but there are plenty of positive reviews of it, so do a search.

    For the oval headed rackets, I have tried Carbonex 8400, it's a good racket. It doesn't have the latest technlogy in it, but it is easy to clear with, and smashes are good but not outstanding. You probably would need better technique to handle the Carbonex 8400 than a MP77 though. If you are an intermediate player, you should do fine. There are positive reviews of Cab 20MS and Cab 30MS, you may consider these as well.

    virusvodoo, SWC_ant, chickenpoodle, wawan, TheGr8Two thanks for the suggestion & recommendation . Actually long time ago I'd bought Ti-10 , price is $100 , compare to my curent racket, Ti-10 give me a better clear, but I've sold it to my friend. I don't know the exact reason why I sold it. May be I just felt that $100 doesn't worth it just for a not significant difference in term of power. If MP 77 really easy to Clear as TheGr8Two recommended, I would like to buy it , because it cost me $ 70, cheaper than Ti-10In. Same thing wth other MP series that SWC_ant recommended , if it really can do easy Clear, I would choose it, Considering that MP33 just cost me $ 40. In double games I don't have any probem with my current racket (fake Toalson), but in single game I think I've put enough power on the Clear, but it is weak , unlike the Ti-10. If I have to narrowed, I will consider MP2x-77 , I think Cab 30 MS is too Expensive for me. the price is the same with Ti-10. How about Cab 20 MS? how it perform? I think the candidate will be MP series (2x, 33, 77) and Cab ( only cab 25 sp and cab MS series, have tried cab 21 sp just felt like nothing special).
