    1. How often do you play, how serious are you?
    4-5 times a week, moderately serious, I really want to get better

    2. What style of player are you? (Aggressive smasher, net player ...)
    Aggressive smasher, likes to drive a lot too, hard hitter

    3. Do you care much about durability or is it all about performance?
    Durability is very important to me, but if the performance is good i'll make an exception

    4. How much money do you want to spend?
    Not really a price limit

    5. Brand?
    Yonex is preferred

    Singles or doubles player? If you are aggressive smasher, I suggest you to buy Voltric 80.

    i agree with kaiyuan i have a vt80 and i have previewed a vt80 i see no really difference except stiffer shaft different graphics and installation of nanopreme really... the price difference is huge though. vt 80 here in phillipines cost like 13000 pesos equivalant 301.27 when the vt80 is probably like 5000 pesos tops which is 115.87 usd. also vt series is really manuverable. if you want a good review on the vt70 here it is http://badminton-coach.co.uk/1786/yonex-voltric-70-badminton-racquet-review/

    VT 70 is way better for double players. But for me VT70 is better that VT80 for singles too :)

    Yeah i tried the 9900 for a day and i liked it a lot, but i'm just trying to see if any other rackets would be good too :p
    Since a place near me has demos, I can just ask to demo a racket so i'll probably try all the ones recommended

    If you want to find a racket which is similar to 9900, Ti-10 is the way to go.

    yes, ns9900 is a very very fast racket. smash is powerful and the sound produced is explosive, despite it is very light and head light. wrist friendly as well. :)

    I personally like the VT80 a lot... I have not tried the NS9900 though... I just prefer head heavier racquet... Suits my playing style more... Aggressive!
