    Default Need advice on best raquet for just smashing

    Hi Everyone, New to these forums and from Australia.

    I basically need a new raquet as I have just broken my muscle power 99. It had a little chip in it and went to smash and snapped the whole frame. Previously I was using a prince raquet and that broke as well when I went to smash it and buckled the frame.

    I get pretty pissed when I play badminton and just like to smash the absolute crap out of the shuttle everytime. So to cut the crap whats the best raquet I can get so I can smash more powerful? Price isnt an issue

    My gfs father is in Singapore atm so I need to give him a model to bring back to australia.

    Cheers for all your help

    Here are some suggestions.

    AT700, AT900P, AT700LTD, Ti10, MP100, ARC10 and if not yonex, you could look at the SOTX range of racquets such as the Woven7, Woven11 and Woven16.

    Ask him to buy you some strings as well, because they are cheaper in singapore than in australia, and i'm sure that there's a better variety of them as well. BG80, BG85, BG66, etc..

    AT700, AT900P, NS9000X (If you're good enough), MP100, SOTX woven 7/diamond fighter 600/Woven 11.

    Yonex is easiest to find. If you're getting the AT series, get 3U, more powerful and heavy.

    Sorry, my fault. It is very hard to find Cab30MS in Australia. Scrap the Cab30ms unless you want to buy from me.

    IMO don't buy from Australia because you will save lots of money if you buy overseas.

    Pray you will not start a business in Australia. You will hear a lot of this on your business. It's your karma.

    Try AT700 or AT900P the Arc10 is not as powerful as either of those two. Ti-10 is also great. The first or second gen.

    Hey everyone thanks for your response.

    I decided to go get both the Armotec 900Power (3U) and the Nanospeed 9000X (2U).

    If I load both of these raquets with BG80 strings what tension do you reckon I should ask for?

    the same tension you used on the MP99. If you don't know, 23X25lb.

    Didn't he already say that? Why're you all talking about buying in Australia or online shops?

    Hang on if he's going to smash the racket then he should just buy several cheaper power rackets. Order a bunch of apacs models which are excellent for power and only cost about 20-25 pounds each. You could have 5 apacs for 1 arc saber 10.

    My most powerful racket is NS9000X because it is the most powerful racket in the world until this new Arcsaber 10 came out. I'm not convinced Arcsaber 10 is more powerful anyway. String it at 24 lbs with nanogy 95 or 98. This will last pretty damn long no matter how hard you smash.

    I agree, just because ARC10 is newer doesn't meant it is more powerful. People think that a newer racket means it is more powerful.
