    I do not know what my ideal racquet would really be, but I would guess the following from what I know now:

    Head size 95 sq. inches - 98
    Length 27" - 27.25"
    Weight 11.5 Oz
    Swingweight 300 - 315
    Stiffness 60-65
    Balance Point -5 to 0 (Head light five points to even)

    I pump that into racquet finder and i get:
    Volkl Tour 9 V-Engine 16x19 Racquets

    Specs are :
    Head Size:
    98 sq. in. / 632 sq. cm.
    Length: 27 inches / 69 cm
    Strung Weight: 11.5oz / 326g
    Balance: 5pts Head Light
    Swingweight: 308
    Stiffness: 64
    Beam Width: 22 mm Straight Beam
    Composition: Carbon / Fiberglass
    Power Level: Low-Medium
    Swing Speed: Fast
    Grip Type: Sensor Tour Handle
    String Pattern:
    16 Mains / 19 Crosses
    Mains skip: 8T, 8H
    One Piece
    No shared holes
    String Tension: 50-60 pounds


    The test done by Triple B I think was decent. I hope Triple B or TW do a more exhaustive test on this racquet. I think this was requested before by someone else.

    Thanks

    If I ever win the lottery, I'm making the new epitome of players rackets.
    the 70 sqin prostaff.

    16 oz, 18 main 20 cross, 10 pts head light. 27 in long. 17mm beam
    Its going to play like a baseball bat. Then I'm stringing it at 80 lbs with natural gut.

    I'm going to tear something probably, but omg the control and the feel would be exceptional.

    EDIT: What am I? Stupid?
    That's my worst idea yet.

    70? That's still to big, you have to go down even further for the ultimate in pin point control and amazing feel.

    10? 5? Yeah, around there. How about a racquet with a 20 square foot head? Oh yeah.

    10rdc flex, 7mm beam, 25in headsize. Then, my friends, we'll have a badminton racket.
