Dear Paul,


Thank you for the forum. I had a small doubt. I am a beginner/intermediate level player. I have been using Carbonex 8000 plus for over 3 years now. My general style of play has been all round play with preference towards drops and placement with intermediate smashes. Also I tend to win a lot of points on my backhand service in doubles. I want to start shifting towards a more attacking style. I wanted to buy a new racquet and was wondering whether I should go for a Voltric 5/7 or an ArcSaber 008. Please guide if I should change the style and opt for a voltric series or stick to my style and upgrade to a arcsaber series. Also what would be an ideal racquet in these ranges to upgrade to?


Thanks & Regards,

Sanket Karmarkar

This is an interesting question.


I'm curious, what makes you believe that changing your racket will change your style?

Up to a point, I believe the racket is only a small percentage in the skill we show on court. My friend knows a national player who is so laid back, he comes to practice and uses a racket provided by the centre and he stil crushes everyone!!


Fair enough you want to buy a new racket and want to start being more attacking. The racket may give you a slight edge over another 1, but very slight.


I wouldnt worry on buying new racket if your old one is fine and good enough. Change your style 1st if you believe it will improve your game and good luck. 🙂

I think style of play is in the mind, not the racket. I'm equally aggresive with my headlight Nanospeed 4500 as I am with my head heavy Voltric 7.


Just pick a racket you like the feel of and play in whatever style you like. Smile
