Need Racquet Recommendation
Hi All, I am a beginner player and still learning the form.
I need a new racquet, I currently have a Yonex VT-80 and I love it! I love it being head heavy, however I need a second racquet (e.g., I let my friend use the VT-80). What racquet should I get? I really don't mind getting another VT-80, but I think I should consult the experts here too.
* I am beginner player.
* Still learning smash form.
* My backhand is quiet weak.
* I always hit the birdie too hard, and there is high probability to go out of bounds.
* Cost isn't that big of an issue.
My other friend also recommended me this --> http://www.badmintonbay.com/Badminto...ing-W-140.html

If you love it, there's no better reason to get another!

P.S. Recommend me some shoes to buy as well (preferably available on amazon or ebay).

you are not a racket renting agency. So if you give a friend your racket, why don't you take his racket? So you don't need to spend money for a second one. As a beginner I would wait with a buy of a second racket. Sometimes people grow in their racket, sometimes they develop a different liking and style of play and will prefer a different racket.
IMO you don't need to buy a second racket. Maybe your friend need to buy a own one.
If it comes to shoes, every recommendation is nearly useless. Shoes have different shapes, fits and every feet are different. I wouldn't buy shoes on ebay because of fakes or on amazon, because you have trouble with sending back, trying next and so on. I would visit a few shops for badminton and try on different brands and models. The one which is most comfortable I would choose.
