    But I really can't. There aren't really any shops in my area that I can demo at. So I kind of have to rely on the experience of others to make a decision. I'm not just judging from one person. I'm trying to find out the mass perspective.

    What racket do you currently like the best (of the ones you used)?.. How do you string? If you tell me that I could do a qualified guess which of them you will be most comfortable with.

    I am currently using an AT 250, strung with BG-80. Not sure about the tension. It was strung at about 23-24 pounds, but I'm guessing it's around 20-22 right now. I like to smash, but I don't seem to be getting a lot of power from this racket. I would say I'm pretty good at drops.

    It doesn't matter what racket you buy, as long as you keep playing with it, eventually it should become the perfect racket. Once you know what a perfect racket is, you will then be in position to buy a more perfect racket.

    I suppose so. There is some logic in your statement. However, I don't see the use of 'perfect' to be relevant, if perfection can be improved. I also want to find these things out, so I can get a racket that I can more suitably improve with; something that'll complement my style better, and I'm not in the position to test out all these rackets by purchasing them all.

    Default racquet balance and performance

    Once I learned that I play better with a head light racquet it was easy to find a racquet by checking the balance point. To do this I need to know the balance point of the actual racquet I am buying. For me this is 270mm-275mm unstrung. This gives me balance of 282mm-290mm with string and overgrip. Keep in mind that racquets made in Taiwan or China can vary widely even in the same model. Costly racquets are usually more uniform in the balance point. A balance point range of say 285mm-300mm for a particular model racquet is without meaning since this could span two or three types of balance.

    If you have no chance to demo them, I would advice you to go with the AT700 (safest bet, and probably less expensive as well than the other two)..

    I am suggesting this method of narrowing the field for those who like me live 200 km from the nearest shop that stocks badminton equiptment. I have seen only two other players with real Yonex racquets. The rest use counterfeit Yonex or cheap entry level racquets. I have found most reputable dealers will check the balance point of the racquet you want to buy.

    well i think even players that don't play badminton will feel a difference compared to a full steel racket. Those things are heavy as hell
