Which racket(s) fit to my playing style??!!
i play Badminton for about 4 years now (every year a league higher), iīm 20 years old, height 192 cm, weight about 86 kg, quite muscular, in good physic shape.
My strengths are good understanding of the game and defense, drops, net play, drives....weakness are smashes (but getting better). (fits to what others say about me)
In our club we play Winex Squaredynamic 800 Tournament (good cost-value ratio), but the better i got, the more i thought this isnīt the best racket for me.
So i decided to buy at least 2 good new rackets (price regardless).
My question now is: Can you suggest rackets to me. I know the names, but donīt know what they are standing for (which racket fits to the different types of players). If theres already a thread about it pls link it.
Tell me what racket should suit best to me (should i play a racket which allows good smashin bc it is one of my weaknesses and and and)! My favs are yonex rackets, but iīm opened for any brand...
Thx for any help!

Maybe you should try Victor MX80, seeing as it combines the great qualities of the Bravesword and Superwave series.

I would agree with LD rules! The MX80 is one of the best all-round rackets you can get today and also delivers plenty of power.

Yup I agree too with the MX80 for all round or you can try Arc 10 but go with MX80. and btw are you single player or double player??

Ty for your replies!!
My favourite discipline is double (then mixed then single)! Ofc i will order these and probably a few other first as test rackets.
Expect the MX80 and arc 10 which rackets are worth testing (even for fun)?

Honestly, I wouldn't take the Arc10, if I had a choice of three rackets ATM, I would probably go for the MX80, SW35 and BS10, all 3U.

To be honest LD rules not offending you. But everyone is different. Anyways test the MX80 since i always want to test it out but nvr did xP

You could try the apacs Tantrum 300 or Lethal 70 - both great all round rackets and very solid too. Not to mention you can probably get 2 apacs rackets for every 1 Victor/Yonex racket.

Yonex Arc 10 would be one suggestion. However you need to test it out yourself. It is good all-round and suit different level of play. It is not too stiff and it is head-heavy so intermediate -advance level player would find this racket friendly

APACS Lethal 60/70 is great when come to smash, but it pretty slow respond on defense.
Victor BW09 or 10 is opposite where it is great in defense due to the aerodynamic design but the head light may cause the player need extra power to generate powerful smashes.
Never approach Yonex Arc10, but I own a Yonex Armortec 300 and its life just short and frame head bend due to the string tension problem...

Actually, the Lethal 60/70 has excellent defense. Of course, if you're more used to head lighter rackets, then you won't find it so.

I canīt find the MX80 in any German online shop! Is it possible that this racket is only avaible in the US and Asia so far?

I have all 3 mx and sometimes when I feel tired I think i should have another racket (the mx60 seems to be quite a bit easier to play then 70 or 80)...
I love the MX, but Iīm not sure whether a less stiffer and less HH balanced racket would fit me more (I think Iīm a allround player, more defensive and trying to outplay my opponents than always smashing and attacking). Some time ago I had triceps problems (caused by weight lifting^^) and then i played with my friends ARC10 PG and it felt easier to play with this racket (even itīs 3U and my MX are all 4U). If i play a lot my shoulder and arm tend to feel tired, itīs not a pain, but it is still probably caused by the stifness of the mx series...
I will try the ar10 pg from friend again, but now itīs a problem to the pg modell..
Which rackets (maybe the bs series) would you recommend to try?
Many people wrote that the mx series (esp. 80 and 70) is quite challenging. I think I can play the mx series, but somehow over the last trainings and matches I thought I at least need another racket that is "easier" to play.

Bravesword 9 then maybe or LYD/12

I find it funny that no one asked you your swing speed before suggesting a model, considering the fact that it is the major element to have in mind when choosing what stiffness will fit you.
If you are not an "enforcer" and prefer to play the game with precision, patience and want a faster racket for this purpose, an even balanced or head light racket would be something to try out.
