Light but multifaceted for beginners?
I want to buy an orderly racket that's very light but still rather good at control and so on. Not to expensive, still I want quality.

Karakal any model number range from 70-85 is super light.
they are not expensive.
their model number = weight e.g. 70=70g
all 2006 models are nano graphite now.
i m using their older models with the short shaft, oval shape.
i donno pricing, but for sure cheaper than YYs.

What about Yonex Isometric 75 MFLT? The thing is that I live in Sweden, and the range isn't that big here.

The MP30 could be a decent investment.

Where can I buy one? any links or shops?
My 77g racket is fast, but with a 70g...super defense.
Anyone got any pics of what the racket looks like?

It's far less maneuverable than my At-800 DE, for example, despite being 10 grams+ lighter.

My current racket is 73-77g, so actually 2g difference at the high end.
If they can make it 66g-70g, that would be truely light. Still worth a look.

owned and sold my TI-75 short shaft/oval, even balance. 75g. very stiff and thick shaft. very durable as well.
seems like u r a fan of kason. what kason model do u recommend that has the following spec: 3U=85g or less, even balance, stiff and long shaft, iso head, muscle power frame preferred.

Also has the muscle power frame. I use it in tournaments mostly.
For the stiff shaft, I have the Kason TSF 200. Rarely have the chance to use it. Only if I get to play against someone like Howard Bach.
The regular racket or all around racket is the Kason Carvel U3, ultra-light, 77g, medium flex. Plays very will with my speed and control.
I'm an advanced player so, smashing at beginners and intermediate players is a no-no, so I use light rackets to practice control & defense.

You could always give the Black Knight Superlight line a try as well, lots of players at my club uses them, they're 75 grams.

Check the official black knight website, www.blackknight.ca There are 3 racquets in the superlight series. 1 that's oval and long, 1 that has all of their technology, Vibraplate technology + Power Channel, and the other has only Power channel. Their stiffness differs also i believe between the last 2.

Beginners lack power. A light racket will give them less power. Less power will keep them as beginners for years to come.
Best thing to do is get a heavier racket with even balance and low string tension. Then you can hit the shuttle to the baseline of your beginner opponent, and he will have no way of returning it back to you without collapsing into a heap of heavy breathing mass. With the power sorted out, you can then improve other areas of your game while your beginner opponent stay a beginner and wondering why he can't imrpove as much as you can, and resign to the fact that just as the experts have told him, his technique is bad.

Although no racket will allow you to overcome bad technique, a beginner using a very light racket will probably be at a disadvantage for the reason that CoolDoo6 describes. It will be better for him to use a heavier racket (say, 90-100g).

The Karakal SL70 is definitely not light in the normal sense. It feels a lot heavier than my Ti-10's. If you are looking for a fast swinging racket, SL70 is not it.
