I'll just copy & paste what I wrote on Badders then, incase anyone lese is interested...
You've picked 3 rackets with nothing in common between them - what are you actually looking for?
Your ability; attack/defense; budget; doubles/singles; etc?
Ignore the rrp on all Browning rackets. They have never been sold for anything like that amount. Infact, I think the only place you can even find them now is RacketWorld on Ebay/Amazon. The really cheap Brownings are good value (I bought a couple, many years ago), but I would never consider paying £60 for one.
If you want a superlight racket, get the Black Knight Ghost PC - it's also 75g and it's a genuinely very high quality racket - much much better than Brownings (take a look at how much they sell for in the US). It's also much cheaper at £39.99 (+£10 prestrung) from www.blackknightuk.co.uk (costs x2 in USA/Canada). If you want a bit more power, there's the NanoFire, which I personally own and love
The Carlton Fireblade Elite is a more attacking racket (all-round really) as it's both heavier and more head-heavy. It's extra stiff, which means you won't be able to get the most out of it without excellent technique. For clearing/smashing, this is the best of the three (if you've got the skills), but there are other rackets even more suitable.
The Fireblade Iso S-Lite is actually much more similar to the NanoSpeed/Browning, due to it's head-light balance.
The NanoSpeed 9000 is another stiff racket (good technique required), and unlike the Fireblade Elite (but like the Iso S-Lite) it's head-light balanced which makes it better defensively, but less powerful.
