    Default Recommend me a Racket!

    Hi Everyone,

    Right now I want to move up to a racket that can hold a higher tension. Currently I am using a Black Knight PC-V65 and It can hold a max of about 24lbs. I have no budget and have looked around. I seem to like balanced rackets. I have heard the MP99 is a balanced powerful racket but has been discontinued. How is the Z-Slash? How about the AT900P? Li-Ning N90? I like smashing and will be playing singles most of the time. Thanks!

    mp99 is slightly head heavy. Try the at900t. i think Z-slash is a bit more head heavy than mp99 and at900t. Both taufik and LCW have used the at900t at one time.

    A little Head Heavy is fine. Is the AT900T create a good sound when the birdie is smashed?

    depends on if u can smash it right along with what kind of string.

    My personal favorite sound is ti-10 with bg-80 amazing sound.

    I'm gonna use Ashaway Zymax 67 because its basically a BG80 that lasts longer. Hows the Ti-10? Is it the purple one?

    maybe you should give Apacs Lethal 60/70 a try 50 is rated top of this review http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=45209
    60 and 70 is pretty similar i have 60 myself and it generates a lot of power, i could tell the difference by the sound just by swinging it with my yy muscle power 100...
    and for 80USD+18 shipping from racket_sports on ebay (quiet a few people on this forum got their rackets from him) i think it's well worth a try...
    tension wise the new Lethal 70 could take up to 40lbs while (i think 60 is 30-35 depending on old - new versions)
    tho this is not a balanced (weight: head heavy) racket it certainly gives power...
    otherwise you can look into other top apacs rackets they're suppose 2 be similar to yy rackets while being much cheaper...

    Okay Thanks peoples I will check out these rackets in more detail! I'm looking at Apacs Lethal series, Li-Ning N90, Yonex AT900T, Ti-10 and Z slash.

    if you insist on a more balanced weight racket take a look at apacs Tantrum 200/300, this 1 also gets a lot of praise.
    if you insist on yonex, i would go for Ti-10, u can't go wrong with it, tho it's not as cheap....
    i've heard Z-slash isn't good unless your an advanced player with a good swing speed...
    the thing is most yonex's tension recommendation is around 24lbs... and at that price i'd cry if it broke cuz it's stringed too high... i could get 2-3 top apacs rackets at that price...

    ti-10 is pretty cheap in my opinion 130-140 including string and shipping at badmintonshoponline.us zslash is about 160 on that site as well

    I have and lots of other members, hes a great seller, but the strings that comes with the racket are not. the price are very competitive, and he can get other Apacs rackets as well. I would recommend getting non Yonex clones, they are usually 3U and performs better

    The price is not much difference if you add the shipping cost as well, especially if you thinking about the Tantrum and Lethal .....both of this rackets are pretty stiff as well so to get the best out of the racket you need to have good techniques
