    hi,
    i am a rear court (all-around offensive type) player & mainly playing double
    currently i am using YY Arc11Pro 3U/G5 as my main & Lining AN9000 as my alternative (buying it due to the white/gold color HAHA)

    i tried/used:
    - YY Arc11Pro 3U: the only thing i hate abt this racket is lack of the HH
    - YY Zforce 1 4U: my previous main before i broke it due to clashing o_O
    - YY Voltric 80 Etune 3U: too heavy when i using it for playing front court (maybe due to the 3U)
    - YY Astrox 88D 3U : love the power inside this beast, but make my wrist tired when playing in fast pace. (some of my friends suggest me to use the 4U, but i not really like the look of this racket :()
    - Lining 3D Calibar 900C: only using it for 3 weeks and sold it, due to the "hollow" feeling when i hit the shuttlecock.
    - YY Nanoflare 800 3U: love the speed, but this racket really lacks the power imo.

    i preferred a 4U head heavy racket, which provide me power and speed

    research these rackets, but havent get any chance to try it in court:
    - Victor TK F Enhanced 4U: my 1st wishlist, but heard alot about the cone/handle issue.
    - YY Astrox 100zz 4U: i read alot of post in forum said that this racket feels like an even-balanced racket rather than a HH racket.
    - YY Astrox 99pro 4U & Victor Ryuga 4U: need more review from u guys about these 2 since i only tried it for 15min from my friend's friend :confused:
    i gladly to know what is ur suggestion if u have any other suggestion for me.

    thanksss!!!

    Might as well try Victor TK F Enhanced 3U since you might find 4U version to be too light imo.

    Astrox 77 is so a pretty good alternative.

    head heavy, and also with a flexible shaft

    I will not recommend Ryuga to anyone unless they got Lee Zi Jia's power. The racket after I've tried for couple of week gave me shoulder and elbow pain. The smashing power is very good but it will not be consistent, same as clears.

    99 pro 4U is good for a rear court player. Good smashing power and control at the rear court. But mid-front court play will suffer a bit if you're in fast exchange since the racket swing weight is heavy. If you want blend between power and speed, 99 pro might not be it.

    TK-F enhanced is a all round racket so good blend of speed and power. the latest batch of tk-f c doesn't have handle and cone issue anymore (i think). so try both 4U and 3U if u have a chance to. My I like "speed" racket more so my pref is 4U but TK-F C 3U version is not as heavy as other 3U racket so you won't have trouble adjusting either.

    Lets add Lining Axforce 80 4U or Axforce 90 (tiger version) if you can wait lol. Axforce 80 is kinda like 100ZZ but more forgiving and a tad more head heavy.

    how about the Jnice Black Panther 4u? I've heard good things about it and if you don't like the look of the 88d pro then this might be the way to go (if it's available in your region)

    88d pro 4u is good for attacker but don't ever try used this as setter.
    Aeronaut 9000C is beast and 9000I I heard not so bad for smash
