First of all, Thanks to Amazon and Cloudtail India for quick and perfect delivery. Product review:Yonex carbonex 7000ex I compared it with Yonex Nanoray 6000i and here are my deductions. 1. 7000ex is lighter and more handy. 2.7000ex has a slightly more converging frame which results in a smaller 'sweet spot'. 3.Better than 6000i for placement. 4.7000ex has literally too much vibration. The whole racquet vibrates even for medium powered shots.This was the most irritating part of the carbonex 7000ex. 5.The shots were more comfortable to manoeuvre and far more powerful in Nanoray 6000i than carbonex 7000ex.
I would suggest 7000ex for those who are looking for a handy racquet to work on their drops and placement. Nanoray 6000i is clearly better in terms of power on shots
A decent racket for beginner players. It is not meant for heavy smash. Here are pros and cons, Pros: 1. It is 2U which means more than 90 gm weight. Now it is not a deal breaker because very light racket is not good to generate power when you are a fresh player. For me 2U to 3U will be best for beginners. 2. It is medium flex racket which is a decent deal. I would prefer a low flex racket because it helps to increase the sweet spot while you hit. A high flex racket can be handled by a semi-pro flawlessly and they can generate good power with it like whiplash effect. But a medium flex is a good deal. 3. grip size is rather small compared to Voltric 7. But it is a decent length and not a deal breaker. 4. I have heard few people are complaining about string tension and for this racket its comfortable range is 18-20 lbs. Now if you are a fresh player don't go above 22 lbs. Higher string tension means hard feedback (vibration during each hit), crisp shuttle contact time, less sweet spot for control and power. It can be easily handled by pros (even 32 lbs). But if you are a beginner then use less string tension for a easier play and protect your elbow because in this time we are mostly pron to develop tennis elbow due to wrong hitting style. 5. Its a balanced racket which means it will be good all rounder. Now head heavy rackets (e.g. Voltric, Muscle Power series) are good for strong smash but these are not that good for control and defense. Similarly headlight rackets (Nanoray series) are good for super control and maneuverability and not for strong hitting or smash. If you don't know then better you buy a balanced racket than any extreme end one. Cons: 1. This is a entry level Yonex Carbonex series and not meant for heavy hitting if you are a regular player. So when I started playing with this racket, it was fine. But now it has started to deform (twisted head) due to stronger hitting. So if you are a beginner player who is discovering badminton then it is a good racket for you. If you are a regular player then please avoid this racket for all cost. Now if you are trying to get a budget racket i would suggest to try a similar priced Artengo (cheaper at decathlon India website) racket which is better than Yonex for entry level rackets up to price mark of 5000 and muchbetter in terms of value for money. YES YOU HARD ME RIGHT, IT IS BETTER. CHECK IT ON YOUR OWN FIRST BEFORE PASSING WRONG COMMENTS. I HAVE HEARD FEW OF THEM. Currently I am using Artengo BR920 V (Rs.3990) which is muchbetter than any entry level Yonex ArcSaber in terms of every aspect and I am quite happy with it. It is a much underrated brand and less known. It can hold better string tension than any similarly priced ArcSaber available (Artengo 22-28 lbs against ArcSabers of 24 lbs max or less) which is amazing and it feels really nimble to swing. I would recommend to do check it out in any nearest Decathlon store or website. Most of the times it is more costly in amazon.
