Need a replacement for Prince 400
I'm looking for a replacement for an old Prince 400. I've tried out a few newer racquets and I quite like the feel of them. I want an all around racquet that is good for net play, smashes and slices.
I'm just a beginner but I'm going to start getting coaching soon, and I feel a new racquet would be useful.
I play 2-3 times a week, but I'm going to be playing more often in future. I'm prepared to spend around £70 - £80 at the most.
Thanks for your help.

The Yonex ArcSaber7 is the racquet for you then; excellent maneuverability, good control, and a reasonable amount of power can be generated with it. Good to see that you are also prepaired to get coaching.
Try ordering one from Wingeebadminton.com, they have one of the lowest prices for genuine Yonex racquets. The ArcSaber 7 is within your budget there as well:

Are the ArcSaber racquets worth the extra cash over a mid-range Nanospeed, such as 6000 or 4500? The nanospeed racquets seem to be a lot cheaper.

Yes, NS4500 will get you the best performance/price ratio. I also will recommend Cab30ms if you can find one. If you are looking for the best all around racquet, I will say ARC7 is one of the best. However, i still like my Cab30ms better because I am an old timer.

i think the AT900T will be your good friend.
head heavy so fits the smashing.
ridiculously fast for an armortec
again, test them out before you buy
