    Default Wish To Purchase A New Racket

    Hi ppl, I wish to purchase a new racket.. but have no idea which 1 shld I go for. I would give some details for u guys to help me easier.

    I play badminton for abt once or twice a week, depending whether do I have any free time due to my studies. Im not sure wad style of player i am, but i usually prefer to be at the net, so mayb im a net player ? I hope my racket have gd durability but also not to lose so much in performance wise. I am willing to spend about $180 for the racket if its really gd. But i hope to get 1 below $150.

    Hope the info help u guys to recommend me a pretty gd racket !
    Thanks !

    Since u dont play that often,why bother to spend that much for a racket?Besides,a racket that's suitable for u is the flexier one,n those normally come in a cheaper price.U can consider to look for a kason stream,or carbon series.Those r very durable n have a good performance as well.The prices r more affordable,around 40 USD i guess.

    Not much of a discount. The original price in USD is around $100, and $149 SGD->USD=$97. $200 would be $130 USD.

    That's more like a 25.5% discount, which wouldn't be that bad, if it were not so close in the original price range. Rackets in Singapore should cost less than any found in the North American market, if not significantly so.

    ok, i will definitely go for X2-FP.
    as for Alvin here, X2-FP is in budget and this lightweight frame will enable you to play at net better. easier to control at the net........

    yeah...i can smash at the net without hitting it into the net now... maybe that one got something to do with my skillz and not the racket but hey... better feel racket = better player performance so GO X2-FP
