    The Mtec is ISO, the SL is oval. Its rather difficult to compare the durability of any racket. Mine is tensioned at 24x26 with BG-80 and remains clash free!
    Recently I broke two Victor Rackets just with smashes but were likely damaged by clashes previously. One was IW5000, the other ATB6000.

    The Karakal SL & Mtec are very popular.

    OK so if anyone has a Ashaway Superlight 79SQ and a Karakal SL 70 or have just played with both, which is better? Could you give reasons aswell because they are my 2 options, i'm swaying towards karakal because I already have one and its good and the SL 70 is alot cheaper then the 79SQ. Also is the SL 70 actually 70 grams because my Karakal was said to be 80g but when I got it was about 90-92g.
    THanks

    I think the weight of all rackets is given without string and grip tape.

    I've tried many rackets before including most that I string for other people.

    I have to say that the SL-70 is superbly light and is one of my favourites for years! But then I like a light racket for doubles. It may not be your preference

    I've had the SL-70 before strung at 25, very much like mp99 but far lighter. You need to generate the power but it's only capable of this power if strung at the higher tensions. If strung too less tension then clears tend to be awkward and they don't go far and high enough, it will not come alive!
    I've tried the 79SQ, strung at 24, much more like the ti10. you can get enormous amount of power out of it and the weight isn't much different from the SL70. The slight difference between these 2 rackets is control, that 79SQ has the repulsion feel to it making net shots easier. But i don't like the oval head of the SL70 so i would go for 79SQ on the basis of controlling net shots and the iso head.
