You have to be aware that things are more complicated and interdependent than it appears.
Given the same shaft stiffness, the racket with the heavier head will bend the shaft more just by having more mass at the end of the stick as compared to a head light one.
Also, given the same shaft stiffness and head balance, the racket with the longer shaft will bend more. eg. Arc Z
yurimaster2010 : IMO do not buy into the marketing slogan of certain company "fastest racket", "aerodynamic" or " special head design". Aerodynamic is basically just the frame shape of the racket. The "opposite" of aerodynamic is the box frame. For a very clear example is the AT900P and 900T. Both are the same flex and balance. The main difference (other than the placement of GUMMETAL) is actually the frame. 900T is aerodynamic, 900P is box frame. Aero is more manuverable, Box has more momentum. It is just a player's preference.
If you need good flexy racket (or high end , if you like) there are plenty of those in the market.
You can try Yonex AT600 for headheavy, Arc7 for balanced or Nanospeed 7700, NS4500, NS7000 for headlight.
For Victor Bravesword series, the high end medium flex racket is BS09 (it is head heavy). There is also the BS169.
Hope this help
thanks for your proposal as i will check it out..
any recon for gosen and apacs brand?
are you a flex shaft user? if yes do u come along any good racket within this range from personal experience...to share
Many have recommended you various rackets based on specs and from personal experience. Nobody can tell you what is best, so I would suggest you go to a shop and hold and swing a few rackets from your shortlist and just buy it. Play with it for a few weeks or months and if you still feel unhappy about it, sell it and repeat the process. Many of us do that.
Since you are in Penang, and it seems that your shortlist consists of higher end rackets, may I suggest you go to Bestech at YMCA Penang and have a look there. Whatever Voldemont has recommended, they have in store.

try li ning racket... da high end rackets are flexible, mid range also nice to play with... if you have the capital, its worth buying
Nanospeed 6000, can't get much more flexible than that...
I don't know, I haven't see any flex rackets made by Li Ning...
I think Wilson BLX Vertex will be a good choice.
Powerful and good control.
Yurimaster.. did you managed to find the racket that suit you?.. I'm looking for the same requirement... appreciate it if you can tell me your experience so I can get the correct racket...
i would recommend you apacs lethal 85... solid, head heavy & medium flex
bp of mine is 296mm with string & overgrip, despite the spec says it is an even-balanced racket
i agree with all the master comments here.
its quite sad that.. most of the top range rackets by the racket makers r always made stiff...maybe it is because the majority of the world top players used stiff rackets?... after all... can i say its a idol or a imitation effect as most players want to use the same equipment as their idol or star uses? Same as soccer or any other sport. Fans wants to wear the same shoes worn by their stars. Want to drvie the same type of sport cars or etc. This has nothing to do with the Fans competency level.
The high stiffness in the high end racket reduces the unstabilty to minimum upon smashing. If it is a flexible head heavy racket, the stability of the rackets during impact would be a issue to control the shot. Guess it would a lot effort to configure some a racket. Stable head heavy with a flexible frame.
I think in li ning higherend rackets u can find the flexible rackets with control nd they r really good nd r used by players also...turbocharging n9 will suit i hope..
You can try duora 7
I haven't played with many high end racquets, but from what I can understand from this thread, you require a racquet of extreme flexibility with a heavy head.
I would recommend the Yonex Carbonex 6. It has a heavy head, and is quite flexible. However, if that is not enough for you, I would recommend the Cosco CBX 330. It has insane flexibility, and a slightly heavy head. I don't think it's quite possible to have a heavy raquet with a high flex.
Possible if you slap a bunch of lead tape on a noodle.
Astrox 77. Even balanced and it's not too stiff.
