    If you're looking for a flexible racquet, I advise you to forget about the Megaflex series. They are all extra- to medium stiff. The name refers to the increased shaft length.

    Megaflex F2
    high modulus graphite
    string: TOALSON 66
    tension: 22lbs

    I got this racquet on sale for P4,160. I've been using a Carlton titanium CFS before I switched to the Megaflex F2. My previous racquet was heavier & stiffer compared to the F2. Playing with the F2 has been a pleasure. Smahses were faster & deeper & lobs went further. This racquet has a lot of power in it. With a mere weight of 88grams, this racquet is easy to swing & wouldn't tire your arms in long games. I would suggest that you try this racquet 1st before your next purchase.

    I think in US, Cab8200 Light is around $50 (USD). I think in CAN, it should be cheaper.

    I saw the 8200 light for $59 CAD in Vancouver. Looked like they were trying to clear them out.

    One factor that I have to also consider is the Price! I don't think I can afford anything above the 100US$ range so please post the prices!

    I don't know anything about those Carlton racquets but if you're in Toronto you pretty much have to go to either Lee's of Yo's in Markham.

    The Ti swing power is SA, SR, SS, SX from most to least flexible, though some people have said otherwise. However it is $230 cdn so it's out of you're price range anyway.

    I consider Yonex Ti SwingPower is a high end racket, and it's about $150 (USD) in US market. In CAN it maybe a little bit cheaper, but I still don't think it will be less than $100 (USD) in CAN. So, if $$$ is a problem to u, sorry...

    Yonex CAB 8200 Light is a good racket for beginner / Int player. It's only $50 (USD) in US, and I heard it's much cheaper in CAN. 1 or 2 of my friends recently bought this racket, and seems work fine for them.
