    Default What racquet would suit me?

    well this is my first time spending real money on a decent badminton racquet so im just looking for some friendly advice

    i wouldnt say im an advanced player, im somewhere in the intermediate range

    i started 3 years ago with a CARLTON Airblade lite and used that since now

    i have been looking at the yonex racquets and etc, cant decide which one i would like

    im mostly a singles player, i would say im better suited for all around play...
    im not exactly sure on the specs or my airblade but something near that weight would be suitable

    here are some of the ones that i was considering:
    AT 800DE
    Nanospeed series
    MP 99
    AT 700

    any other suggestions?

    AT-500 is a good start if you like head heavy racquet.

    If you don't have a chance to demo many rackets, I will say AT500, AT800DE and MP99 are all safe choices. For SOTX, Woven 8/8A are also good value for the bucks.

    Are you dealing with any price limitations? I also recommand MP99 and the Woven-8. They are both very nice rackets. Other then those: Carlton Powerblade Tour is pretty nice for singles.

    Why not another Airblade? I personally dont like them but something like the Powerblade Elite if you want a whippy racquet or an Airblade Superlite if you want something stiffer.

    Nah, it's almost Christmas. I imagine more like an order of 50. With a couple pairs of shb99le's on the side and maybe that new stringing machine along with a couple hundred yards of string.
