Recommendation for my new racket choice
Hi there, after some search I found this useful site. I hope you lot can help me with my choice for a new racket. Because this week I broke my Victor Tribok racket, so I need a new one.
Could you guys recommend me a racket that suits my style of play?
--> I think I'm an allround (defensive) type of player. My clears are not allways as good: they are too short sometimes, but that goes better & better the last couple of months. I often drop from the back of the court and my smashes are not destroying hard, not bad but it's not a real weapon from me. That's the reason why I try to create the ideal smashing opportunity with some clears & drops.
I tend to play a lot of doubles as well, and I have to smash a lot there of course. Though, my singles play is the priority.
I'm a C2 player, 20 years old and I'm looking for a racket between 80 & 115 euro's....
I hope you can help me!

Maybe Yonex Arc Saber 7 or 10, or AT900-T

I second the AT900T or maybe the nanospeed 9000s.

Some other recommended me the "SOTX Woven 9" (or Woven 8) or the Yonex Nanospeed 5000/Nanospeed 6000.
What do you think about those ones??

The SOTX wovens are superb. I would wholeheartedly recommend them. The nanospeed 6000 looks very nice but I've never played with it so I couldn't really comment on it (other than it looks gorgeous). The Arcsaber 10 is a good racket too; currently my weapon of choice.

The Arcsaber is a bit too expensive for me. Thought about the Arcsaber 7 aswell, but would like somthing cheaper around the 90-105 euros mark.
You already played with the SOTX Woven 9? How does it feel? For defensive or attacking play etc?

If your budget is more high then at900t is best choice but for compare you can consider Yonex Ti-10 also....very good for smashing and acceptable for defense. Price is not as high as At900 or Arc10/7....the best value Yonex racket
Also consider other brand like Carlton Powerblade 9902....too many to mention here and you should try by yourself to find the right one ....happy hunting
