Carlton Airblade Elite vs Carlton Airblade Tour
Presently, I have 3 AB Rasmussen Tour that suits me very well.
But I'd like to buy another one and I'm interested in buying a AB Elite since the Rasmussen Tour is discontinuited in my area.
Moreover, the AB Elite is only €15 more expensive so I may dare to buy one, especially if it performs as well if not better than the AB Tour
So i'd like to have your opinions on the ELITE. How does it compare with the AB Tour ? What is different in term of stiffness, balance, weight, lenght ? Is the Elite far much different from my AB Tour ?
Thanks for your help & replies,

airblade superlite - head-light balance
airblade tour - even balance
airblade elite - head-heavy balance
not sure bout the flexibility of the shafts although based on experience, carltons are on the flexy side.
i used to have an airbalde tour (the model used by nathan robertson), excellent racket. nice feel, med flex, great all-around performance. kinda short if youre used to yonex rackets & it has an oval head, might need a little adjusting if youre used to iso's.

Thanks for your review Yfever
Although The carlton racquets are quite flex according to you, do you believe the ELITE is somehow stiffer than the TOUR ?
Since the Elite is more like a "top-range" racquet, I think It should be stiffer ... (And that's what I'm looking for, since the tour is quite flex for me ...)
