    Hey, I'm thinking of getting a new racket!
    Preferably a Yonex one!
    But yeah I don't really know how to compare rackets, so I'm asking you guys for some help!

    I should be playing doubles and yeah, I think my playing style is more of the attacking kind.

    How does an Arcsaber sound?
    Help help!
    Thanks! :D

    What is your current racket, and what do you think of it?

    I'm using some racket that my coach bought for me.
    The brand is like Speed. I doubt anyone heard about it.
    Yeah, I'm kinda used to it already.
    But I need a new racket, because I got only that one so far!

    I don't know what standard you are but I'm guessing closer to beginner than advanced?

    I think you need to borrow some racquets from other people to try to get a feel for what would suit you. This will help you come up with a list of criteria to help you choose your own new racquet e.g. head-light/head-heavy/even balance, extra-stiff/stiff/medium flex/flex etc.

    I suspect something with an even balance and a medium flex would benefit you at the moment, a more extreme racquet e.g. extra-stiff might do more harm than good.

    Once you've determined your criteria then people will be more able to recommend actual models.

    I think an arcsaber wouldn't benefit you really. A mid-end racquet should be better, like Babolat booster force, which is a really good balanced racquet if you want to improve your game

    I think Speed is a local brand, it is from the badminton shop at Singapore Swimming club.
