    Listed in order of favouritism

    1. Nanoflare 800ltd 4ug5
    2. Nanoray 800 3ug4 black colour scheme
    3. Nanoray 800 3ug4 poinsetta red colour scheme
    4. Astrox 100zz 3ug4
    5. Nanospeed 9900 dunno the U, but it's a G3.
    6. Arcsaber 11 pro 3ug4
    7. Custom head light racquet I can't remember the name of. The company didn't trade for more than a few years.
    8. Voltrik lite
    9. Random low end nanoray or nanoflare.
    10. defected vt80. It's got a misshapen head. I'm keeping it for the lols.
    11. Random carlton/victor junior racquet for my 4 year old Niece

    Explanation behind all the racquets;
    number 11 is for my niece when she is old enough and wants to play.
    Number 10 I bought as the first "expensive" racquet and I had a tax refund at the time. I didn't even notice the head was misshapen until maybe 6 months of playing with it. It's really subtle, but you can see the strings don't make squares when it's strung.

    Numbers 8 and 9 I bought as backups and to see if there was anything behind the yonex marketing team claims about all these technologies in the top end racquets.
    Number 7 I bought a long time ago. Used it for a bit but wasn't impressed overall.
    Number 6 I bought last month as they came back in stock in England and I had never tried an arcsaber. I need to give it more time really, but it didn't stand out like playing with my nanorays or astrox 100zz do.

    Number 5 I bought through a coach's contact. I was convinced I needed a larger grip to get more power out of my smashes. Turns out I was mistaken. I can play with it, but G3 is too big for my hand.

    Which brings me to number 4. I had a Voltrik Z force and think I ended up selling it to someone. I couldn't get the most out of it. I bought the Astrox 100zz when I wanted a head heavy racquet, maybe for singles. I can't realistically play with it for a full session as it stresses out my shoulder. But it is fun to play with and the clears are effortless.

    Number 3 is a racquet I luckily found on Ebay when I was looking for a spare number 2. It was in great condition as it was someone's spare racquet. My favourite string is BG66Ultimax and it does wear out or break quite easily. So it's good to have a duplicate spare racquet as backup.

    Number 2 is probably the racquet I play best with (mainly doubles).

    I didn't expect number 1 to be my favourite, but it has become my favourite. It's got a very different profile when compared to number 2, but that's a good thing. It's taken me a few weeks to get used to playing with it and the results have impressed me. I hope to have this racquet mastered sometime this year. Backhand and round the head shots are things I still don't have the hang of with it yet. It has a similar style head to the zforce and the astrox 100zz with it being smaller than normal.

    When I went back to trying racquet number 2 on Monday half way through the evening, I did a simple lift to the back from the frontcourt and it sounded like a smash. I was shocked, but it's likely down to hitting the sweet spot perfectly which I wasn't doing before.
