    Hi,

    I play between a beginner and intermediate level and have been using a Head power Helix 8000, which I was quite happy with. However, I broke the racket recently and am on the lookout for a new one. I play almost 4-5 times a week and have a fairly offense-oriented game.

    Would it be a wise idea for me to try the Head Power Helix 10000? Any other recommendations? My budget is somewhere around £60.

    Thanks,
    Monica

    head have discontinued their production of badminton rackets so if you find a racket from head that you like, you should probably buy a few copies of them in case they break. from what i read the 10000 is a more powerful racket, maybe a bit more head heavy so that might suit your offensive game.

    If the gym/shop have demo rackets to try, definitely do some drills with it before purchase. It is difficult to make a decision, only based on specification.

    nanoray 60 is within you budget. very light-weight, little head-balanced (almost neutral), stiff, fast and easy to handle.
