    I'm an intermediate player, 16 year old, playing style all rounder, current racket vt50 etune..
    I have to buy new racket like my previous one (vt50 etune) or better..
    Need your suggestions to buy one, coz im new here nd all confused which one to buy nd you guys may have lot of experience... My budget is $250.. i dont need zf2 or any hight ends coz i may not be able to use them it their potential nd end up injuring myself....
    Thank all of you in advance
    Sorry for poor English nd mistakes
    Nd plz suggest strings too!

    I assume vt50 is less stiff than vt80

    if you want head-heavy, there's not a lot from yonex. vt70 e-tune seems a good choice, though.

    well if you want 4u then victor TK6000 is a good bet
    but playing singles with 4U is kinda odd... i'd better get an even-balanced 3U, like arc11 or duo7

    bg80 is the best all-round string
    li-ning n9 first or second gen is slightly head-heavy, not too stiff, rather easy to handle, you can try that one, if you want.

    well they say that n7 is a bit head-lighter. but i dont think they are miles apart. i haven't tried the N7, but i have the 1st gen n9
    u didn't say u had N7 from the start, it would have been a good comparison point.

    Then give it a try if you get it. Also if you can get it from your friends try the Yonex LD-F. In Victor dept i can only recommend you thr JS12 but it is hard to get in India( only available in Bangalore)

    Thanks a lot vivek, but i read many forum here say intermediate players shouldn't buy high end rackets coz they might end up injuring themselves.. so...? Still i will try if i could get them! Really appreciate your reply thanks!

    I donot think so brother. I would surely imply this thinking for a beginner but after you have reached the intermediate stage there are racquets that are friendly with the style you play and then there are racquets that are for pros or the advanced category.
    For example the z force 2, or the js10, thr nanoray zspeed. These are some racquets that we cannot handle due the requirement of proper technique to handle them on court.
    But racquets like LDF, DUO10, BS12, JS12 these all racquets are very friendly and a bit easier to play with.
    And since we both have been V50 users I would like to share an experience of mine brother. There is no such racquet that you can't handle only thing you should try is to give it some time. Try that racquet for a few days adjust your style according to it and kaboom surely you could manoeuvre any racquet. I was very much disappointed in the V50 because it was a very tough racquet to manoeuvre I was simply not ready for that head heaviness , it became a pain as my shots were going here and there technique was getting affected but now I am very much happy with it I have now come at a stage where i am properly able to handle it(I know I am being more biased brother only because i love the color very much)

    Hence brother try those racquets give them some time and surely it would fruitful to your plays.
