    I'm a singles player happily married to a 3U AX77. Sometimes I find the heavyish head a little bit tiring though, especially for long training sessions. My current 3u backup is very easy on the arm but also quite weak as it's the beginner racket I bought 3 years ago.

    So looking for something fully even balance and stiff. I don't wanna spend too much so just recommendations from cheaper brands please. In Vietnam apacs and flypower are easy to get hold of. Li Ning can also be very good value here.

    Thanks in advance

    i would sugguest

    4u ax77
    3u arc11 (if you can find something on a second hand market at your location)

    for apacs, you could look at tantrum 200 series, they are at the 3rd generation now

    hope it helps

    Have a look at Adidas Kalkul or Spieler ranges.
    There are good even balanced options on the borderline of 3u/4u and very good value for money.

    sorry mate they are way very far from 3u, way more closer the middle/lower 4u range
    lethal 60 II should be quite nice option 88g 290bp or tantrum 500 III

    Nanoflare 800 is stiff and even balance with a hint of head heaviness.
    Box frame that swings like aero.
