Base Vs Flagship model

Hello everyone and thankyou for the replies.

I would like to explain my point a bit more clearly here.(and i might fail again because of my irregular thought process:confused:)

My current racquets:-

1) Yonex Carbonex 21 special (2u, balanced, ?medium stiff, oval head) – i use it for wall practice, warm-up. It’s my oldest racquet & i have never been able to play great with it.

2) Yonex Nanoray 18i (5u, headlight, flexible, isometric head) – i bought it without much thought after i broke my Yonex Duora 77 LCW edition (i played amazingly well with it).

I have become so used to the Nanoray that it can take anywhere from 1-7 days for me to adjust to another racquet with different weight & flexibility.
I feel so confident with it that I won’t take it out of my bag unless it’s a challenge match, or i really wanna put a dent in the opponents celebrations.

3) Yonex Astrox ? (4u, medium flex, somewhat headlight) – I bought it when I broke my first Nanoray, thinking that a 4u will give me more power. It did but my netgame suffered and also i wasn’t able to do get the racquet back up for consecutive smashes(3-4).

4) Yonex Astrox lite 27i (5u, flexible) –
But this racquet doesn’t feel like a 5u and flexible. I bought it after i broke my Mizuno speedflex 7.0 (it was a bit head heavy, medium flex, felt like 4u) for singles and when I have front player i can trust.
But I haven’t played with it much as my good friend has taken a liking to it and plays with it daily.

5) Arcsaber 11 PLAY (4u, medium flex, balanced) – Never played with an Arcsaber before and have been always intrigued by ‘shuttle hold’ properties & accuracy hype etc. So nowdays i start my games with this.. but so far I’m getting nothing extra from the racquet.. it’s just easy to wield.

6) Carlton Ultralite 7.6 (73gms, slightly head heavy, flexible) I bought it off from a friend this year. I had broken mine within 3 days long back when this was in circulation so never really got to test it. Im enjoying it as a fun racquet for now and trying to adjust to its weight/swing. Avoiding any clashes.

7) Lining Windlite ?800 or 900 i will recheck.
I bought it from someone just to try out lining lightweight racquets as they are supposed to have better ‘feel’. I have played relatively less with it, still trying different string/overgrips.

That was all about my current racquets. When I broke my second Nanoray 18i during the final set and had to switch to the Astrox midgame, i couldn’t perform and we managed a win by the skin of our teeth.
That moment I realised the value of having multiple spares of your favourite racquet.

Over the years, i kept losing my racquets to numerous in game clashes, which even though infuriating but also gave me a chance to look for a new one. Also, everytime I have been bested by a superior player(even in MS which I’m not used to) i try to improvise.. which may/may not inspire a new racquet acquisition.

In doubles, i try to hog the shuttle. From the back i try to finish with well placed smashes otherwise retain the attack. In the front, i try to play more net dribbles and intercept.
A lightweight, headlight, flexible racquet allows me all this + fast defence. I have struggled to get the same results from a heavy/stiff equipment.

Nobody at my club plays with a Flagship model which is lightweight+ flexible+ headlight. That’s why I was wondering if somebody can shed light on this concept.

For example: You may like stiff, head heavy racquets. For that- you can have a starting Voltric 7 or the Flagship VZF2 (if both racquets share the SAME SPECS i.e. weight, flex, headsize, strings, grip size.)
So how will the expensive racquet affect the overall game of the player ?

I totally understand that may be the only way to find out is by going green.. but that’s how I ended up with 7 different racquets in the first place :mad:. And now it’s been a while that I have lost a racquet to in-game clash.

Thanku again for the replies.
