Hi all, I am an intermediate player increasingly forced to play doubles because of the necessity to accommodate more number of club players. Strengths: Smashes, Clears, Lifts, Netkill Weaknesses: drops, netplay, counter punches I play with a Voltric 5 for doubles and Voltric ZF2 for singles. With the voltric 5 I have trouble with fast counter punches especially when they are aimed at my body. I wonder if going for a headlight racket will solve my problem. And then I evaluated the following options based on online reviews: Yonex NanoSpeed 9900 (Headlight, Stiff, Normal racket head size) I read that this is an amazing headlight racket, but due to its stiffness some online reviews it might not help in the counter exchanges. Although this is no longer in production, there might be the possibility of buying a second hand one Victor Jetspeed 10 (Headlight, Stiff, Compact racket head size) Based on reviews, I am most convinced about this one as a superfast racket, but I am slightly wary of the compact head size. The ZF2 which I use for singles has very low tolerance for anything that doesn't hit the sweetspot and I wonder if JF10 would behave similarly. Victor Jetspeed 12 (Balanced, Medium Flex, Normal racket head size) Although slightly slower, supposed to be even better than JS10, but from the reviews it sounds similar to my V5, and I wonder if this would behave any differently. Sadly, there is no shop in my surroundings where I can feel these high end rackets in my hand and the only time I can experience is once I receive the racket delivered via post. Any input/suggestions is welcome. Thanks, Sooraj.
