    does anyone know of any relatively high end rackets who have more flexible shafts? I find that all of the high end yonex rackets are all listed as either extra stiff or stiff on their website. The closest thing i could find to what i was looking for was the voltric70 which is listed as medium stiff.
    I'm not familiar at all with the other [FONT=arial, sans-serif]racket[/FONT] manufacturers, so some insight into that would help as well.

    Any comments would be appreciated:)

    for medium or more flexible rackets...
    You can take a look at the following ranges.

    li ning n50 series is classed as medium flex.
    babolat satelite 6.5
    some of the wilson rackets.

    I don;t own any of the above apart from a wilson k lite.

    It depends on your personal definition of (relatively) high-end racket bro. :D

    1. Voltric 60 is flexible (and head heavy) - available in 4U.
    2. Nanospeed 6600 is flexible (and head light) - available in 3U.
    3. Armortec 600 is flexible (and head heavy) - available in 4U.

    forgot to ask. Since you live in North America, which badminton brand do you have access to?

    I don't follow badminton equipment very closely so I wouldn't be the best person to ask about what kind of stuff you can find on this side of the pond. With that being said everything is predominately yonex out here with some mid level wilson stuff.
    i've never seen anything li-ning or victor myself, but i'm sure you could find it if you were to look hard enough.

    I am asking. Because in your case, it is probably better for you to go to a shop to test some of the rackets we suggested. So yonex suggestions will most likely suit your needs better.
