    Hi all,
    I'm looking to purchase a new racket soon....
    I am an intermediate player wanting to improve and I play 1/2 times a week with feather and plastic shuttlecocks.
    I'd class myself as an all round player who likes to mostly smash but also likes playing precise drops and net shots.
    I play both singles and doubles
    My budget is around £55 to £60
    After lots of research I came across the yonex voltric 7 which I think suits my playing style.
    Are there any other rackets that you guys recommended?
    Also, not sure what string tension to use, I had a racket with 24lbs and the strings kept on breaking when I smashed.
    Should I reduce the string tension or continue with 24lbs and hope for the best?

    Thanks
    Tarun

    There is a special part of the forum for racket recommendations, please post there next time.

    Voltric 7 sounds like it could work for you. Or slightly less heav heavy like the duora 77 or victor thruster k600 could also work for you.

    22-24 lbs sounds fine, but if the string breaks easy you could try a thicker string (bg65 or zymax 70 perhaps).

    Good luck!
