    You can get training racquets from Artric Sports. I have seen a few of those. It comes in a few weight, 110gm, 125gm and 160gm I believe.

    Why bother with the expense of ordering with shipping and customs. Just get a cheap metal racquet from your local store. Train with that.

    Be careful, you might injured yourself if you are not careful with it.

    personally i used the carbonex series for a while and that's increased my smash speed quiet a bit... i'd suggest getting one since you have 2 hit it basically bang centre to get good power and it's quiet heavy...
    carb20 can be brought here

    tho i've never brought from this guy... very tempted 2 buy... carb20 is a classic

    i know it varies dependant on user, however, what sort of weight is 'roughly' a good weight to use for training

    Since so many people have replied to the topic question saliently, allow me to go a little off

    I'm one of the disbeliefers in training with abnormally heavy rackets.

    the major contradiction i see is that - powerful smash comes from best coordination and that instant of fast hit (i'm no expert in muscles so excuse me for not using detailed terminology regarding muscle groups and their properties).

    i think it's better to train any type of shot without using extra weight.

    the thing is, there are certain thresholds for swingspeed and such, which make a difference. training with a heavy racket usually improves 'wrist' strength, which improves swingspeed which usually means a faster smash.

    I hear that many pro players use this kind of training. i believe you can find it in the JR forum as well.

    im pretty sure every professional player has used this strategy
    i think your concept is wrong its not to improve timing or co-ordination rather to improve the muscles you use during the smash action
    the method is rather like going to the gym and using weights to specifically train muscle groups

    the thing is using something that's twice as heavy will definitely change your technique, so i don't think it's such a good idea... something that's slightly heavier like the carbonex sounds like a better choice to me... and it's a very strong smashing racket by itself.... 100 USD for a weight seems a bit too much to me, same price as a carbonex20...

    i have a few very early yonex rackets around and they weigh a tonne, you can easily hurt your wrist if not controlled probably... more for sitting down swinging with your arm(i keep feeling it's going 2 break my wrist or something), not really for playing with
    obviously you dont play with it.O_O how would you ever win??
    you just train with it and ovbiously you wouldn't start with a racquet that's too heavy for you

    i never said playing a game with a 160g racket, even training (with clears) will change your form unless your a advanced player with a very strong arm...
    from what he said he probably hasn't used anything above the 'normal' weight range of rackets...
    that's why i recommended the carbonex(one of the best rackets of all time), it feels heavier then most rackets and is playable. i went from carbonex to others such as MP100, Lethal60 and have a pretty decent smash...
