    Default Upgrade from MP-33?

    Recently I've been feeling that my MP33 has taken me as far as it'll get me. It's starting to feel light in my hands and that it's not keeping up with my best performances. That plus the fact that my girlfriend wants it is leading me to look for a new racket.

    Any suggestions on what an upgrade would be? I'm not opposed to an expensive racket but I can't really find friends who have the high-end Yonex rackets so that I can give them a try first. I did play with the Armortech 500 and that felt horrible.

    I'm basically a doubles player with good smash, drive, clear and defense. My net play needs work. My swing is wristy but I still use a lot of torso rotation owing to years of playing tennis.

    Thanks.

    I'd say AT800OF. Many people have commented positively AT800DE too, but I've found the OF version better (=more smashing power, about the same return & net feel). Still haven't tried NS8000 though...

    The cab22 is an oval head, isn't it? What about the ns8000?

    I've gotten used to isometric heads so I'm not sure i'd like to go back to oval.

    I like them both. Both are stiff rackets IMO.

    NS8000 is head light, maneuverable, and I can generate power with it, that's why I love it!

    Yes, Cab22 is an oval head racket. I like it because this racket is very 'accurate', fast, and powerful. However, IMO if I am already in a wrong position to take the birdie, it is very hard to hit/control the birdie correctly (perhaps it is called unforgiving?).

    MP100 - I haven't tried it yet. So, I cannot give you my opinion
