    Hi! So i need new racket. One of this, VT 70 , VT 80 , Z-Slash , AT 900 or Babolat.

    1. How often do you play, how serious are you?
    2-4 times in week, but if i can play every day and 2 times in day i will play it, so that means i am very serious
    2. What style of player are you? (Aggressive smasher, net player ...)
    Aggresive smasher, who sometimes like to control play
    3. Do you care much about durability or is it all about performance? Let skip this :) But of course i need very durable racket
    4. How much money do you want to spend?
    Skip this too :D

    Soooooo, i am singles player ,who play doubles only in training sessions , but in tournaments i play SINGLES .

    The Voltric 80 is a good racket to start from
    It is is head heavy and for you could use a 3U model.
    The Arcsaber has a thin frame so it cuts through the air quickly allowing for faster smashers, this racket in an even balanced racket, good for defense and offense. The frame is thin and likely to break if the racket is clashed.
    The Armotec 900 Power good racket. It is head heavy which give you momentum when you smash.
    These rackets are all Stiff.

    If you want something from babolat, you might consider the x-feel blast. This is a beast in attacking play but it's very stiff. I didn't play with this before but i had a chance to get my hands on this racket and did a few dry swing and bending of the shaft, it doesn't suit me. However, if it suits you, it's a huge weapon

    You could try an Arcsaber 10
    It is stiff and even balanced.
    I could ask my friend to try out his Armotec 900 Power LCW and Voltric 70.

    too bad I am not rich enough to have all of the rackets above
    however, if you want another brand, I would go for Victor MX80
    many people praise this racket

    arvislancmanis,

    My previous racket was AT30 and NS850 .

    NS850 was a mistake for me. I don't like it. So i clash it (specially) against the wall :D.

    [​IMG]

    AT30 was a good racket. I like that racket, but it broke . That racket was good for me, but i want more :D .

    [​IMG]

    And in the early past i have RSL NOVA 6180 , what was very good for me :)

    [​IMG]

    But now i want high-end racket, who will be even balance to head-heavy.

    I have all the racquets you listed except the VT70. In my opinion, go for the VT80. In my opinion, it is the best racquet from Yonex at this moment.

    Another racquet you should consider is the Victor SW35.

    Both these recommendation should suit you.

    Do you open to another brand?

    If you want stiff and even balance to head heavy, try Victor SW35, Li Ning N55, or Yonex Arc 10

    cant go wrong with vt80, it is a beast and the smashes are powerful ONLY if u are able to handle it, it is very stiff. If you want something less stiff, perhaps vt70?

    carlton is just an ok racket maker
    it is really hard to recommend carlton racket because they have too many models, and lack of advertisement, that is why no one really use it (except you want to buy cheap racket..)

    you can buy victor from UK
    victor MX80 is much more bearable version of VT80
    less head heavy but certainly quick
