    Default Looking for new racket (beginner - intermediate)

    Hi all, I just join this forum. I live in Singapore and I am looking for a new racket that has specs like the following...

    Flex: Flexible
    Head: Square/Isometric
    Weight: 3U
    Balance: Head heavy
    Tension: Can take up to 20-26lb

    Any brand, high or low end rackets are OK.
    Thanks in advanced for any suggestions and comments. ^_^

    Have a look in the Victor fans thread. Towards the end, there are several posts that show Victor's line represented by RRI (racket response indicator).

    My post there.

    I feel Victor is the most complete compared to other manufacturers.

    I found these website below, selling this brand called "Flex Power". The price is amazingly attractive. Is that brand good?

    It's an ok brand, I believe it's the same company as APACS. I have two FP rackets, Furore 9 and Cyclone 300. Furore 9 swings faster due to frame shape. Nothing to complain about, standard stuff from APACS. Many of the rackets under the brand are about the same more or less, just slight differences and paint designs. I would suggest APACS, Flex Power, or any other "Brand" etc. over grabbing fake Yonex and other fakes 100% because with a name brand, there's an incentive for them to make a consistent quality racket.

    Have you looked at a Sotx Woven 7. Its a great racquet with your specs.

    SOTX is definitely better than APACS or Flex Power, I have owned 3 SOTX myself and the WOVEN 8 was one until it broke. The brand and models are hard to find though.

    Have u personally tried it? On what basis of comparison do u say it's not flexible?

    Now, imo TK-6k is medium flexible on its own n in its range of the TK series. But it is comparatively a tad stiffer than medium-flex of Yonex rackets.
