    Default Re: advice on a new racket please

    if u want to stick with Yonex then i would recommend either:

    Ti-10
    MP77
    MP100 (MP77 nicer imo)
    Iso SP SS/SX
    or even another Cab20/21

    With the 1st 4 you will have to get used to the iso head shape as if i am right cabs have traditional head shape.

    U could also try the likes of Forza, Carlton, Fleet, Ashaway and so on, but i would tend to stick to yonex as i have tried many of clones. Heard that Forza are excellent tho!

    Try the Carlton Airblade 900. It would be perfect for you as it is very explosive and would work nicely for your smashes and clears.

    Yeah i would agree, but Ti-7 is also a very nice racket... i am a yonex person myself so i would go with yonex, having tried the carltons aswell they are good rackets but still yonex does it for me (-:

    power in clear and smashes? racquet type play a little effect. If you have the technique and strength, even using a racquet made of wood(as long as the string tension suit you) you still can be a good player. You just have to adapt to the new racquet. if you are a profesional or high skill player, yes, every advantage is good. if playing under the beginner or intermediate group, any racquet will do. it more to the body and skill development.

    yes it was ok, i played fine with it! but it broke. but my uncle knows a manager from yonex europe so its tempting to get a expensive racket for a very cheap price hehe, but ya maybe i'll get another cab20!
