Need help choosing my first new racket in years!

avatar male m

Hi, I am looking to purchase a new racket but after sticking with the same model of racket for 15years I’m a bit lost.

I currently use a Carlton Vapour Trail Tour and have done so for many years. Perhaps out of laziness I have always just upgraded to the newer model.

It’s even balance, mid/stiff flex, 87g. For ease I have always stuck with that… but it’s discontinued. Looking for something new of similar spec and different brand.

Arcsaber 11 pro and Victor thruster fc seem similar. Thruster perhaps looks more forgiving?

I only play doubles, attacking style, preference for the back but value all round play. I would say intermediate level playing club and league. Uk based

Any suggestions/ recommendations.
