    Hmmmm, head heavy+power for smashes+control for netplays, i guess shld be these few choices AT800OFF, AT800DEF, AT700. Slight head heavy choices shld be Cab30ms, Mp99, Mp100, Mp77. It all depends whether u are playing singles or doubles n yr level of play.

    Default Yonex

    Hi,
    check out the Yonex website which has a brief description of every racket. After that you can go and have a read at the review section for more info.

    Since I dont know how long you have played etc I cant give you appropriate advice.
    What I do know is that the Isometric 500 series, which has 4 different models based on what you prefer, is not expensive and is a good racket. When I started playing i used the Iso 900 SR which is the defensive singles version if im not mistaking. (Quite head-heavy actually and with good control.)

    I use mp88 (the old version) which I think is very good... But I'm switching to mp99, which is even balanced. I highly recommend mp88.

    1. Whether a racket fits for a player or not, only the player him/herself can answer. Head heavy racket might help player A, but could be a total nightmare for player B due to various reasons.

    2. Personally, I prefer a even balanced racket way over a head heavy one.

    3. Head heaviness is just 1 out of many factors regarding to a racket. Other important factors including stiffness, overall weight, grip size, string tension / type, head shape, etc.

    4. Reviews could only be used as reference. It's better to borrow / rent the racket(s), and try out urself.
