Hi Queen, and welcome to the forums!
Choosing a racket is rather hard, especially if you've never really read much about it, or tried some rackets out. If you are a beginner a flexier racket is suggestable, but other than that we can't help you much...
and just to add, with badmintonrackets there's no such thing as "better"..just 'different' ( or "special")

i have actuelly read alot, but i didnt understand!! i have always got my rackets and never bought them, and that is why i dont understand so much in them. any way, can u answer me what do they mean when they say stiff ? is it when the string is so tight and when the smatch is very hard ? or it is more like when u can do better net play? and why i dont see a big different in the weight of the racket!! By the way where do u play ? have u been in a badminton school a broad?

having a stiff racquet is not reccommended if ur not ready for it. it will take 2 much strength trying 2 flex the shaft and could end up damage ur wrist. same with strings, too high tension could also result in injuries. a novice to intermediate player should be using a flexable racquet until they are ready

You might want to start with a racket which is moderate flex. An MP88 would be a racket to try to see if you want a racket that is more flexable or stiffer.

The best price for NS 9000 among other internet shops or regular sport shops in Basel (Switzerland) is around 149 Euro.
There are 2 different rackets (NS 9000 S and NS 9000 X)
X= Extra Stiff
