Thread: doubles racket?
10-22-2010, 12:49 PM #1
i have recently been looking for a suitable doubles racket for me, but i've also been confused by the different responses on the forum.
for example, i've been looking into the bravesword series from victor, but i have not been able to determine whether the bs10 or the bs11 is more head heavy (there's so much disagreement about this point!)
so here is what i'm looking for:
1. i play at least twice/three times a week, a total of about 4-6 hours per week on average.
2. i mostly play doubles (like 80% of the time?) and rarely singles.
3. i like to smash occasionally, but i feel that i'm more of a defensive/net player.
4. my current racket is a AT700 (not sure which generation), but i find this racket really head heavy... (sometimes if i'm not very careful my wrist hurts by the end of the session).
5. i think i prefer headlight over headheavy (quick-swinger)
6. my budget is in the high 100s; upto $180 (USD), say?

Well the AT700 1st gen is the one with the Yellow "700".
If you can get the Nanospeed 9900 it's the ultimate doubles racket.

are there any other alternatives besides the ns9900?

The Bravesword 11 is an excellent racket (if you like medium-stiff rackets). It is very quick, maneuverable, with good control, and its slight head-heaviness gives it good power on smashes too. I have both the BS11 and BS10 and the BS10 is definitely stiffer and head heavier.

so i've been looking at some of the rackets available on badmintonwarehouse.com, namely:
as well as the bs10 and bs11.
can anyone offer any advice on choosing among these four? again, i am primarily a doubles player seeking more control and net play but some potential for smashes as well... i prefer head light rackets, and as for stiffness i found my current at700 to be "okay" (maybe it's a bit stiff?) for me.
