Worth every penny you spend..

G-Tek 55 II : Its one of the racquets i use quite often and is always there in my equipbag!! Why? It gives a decent game play than most of the racquets in this range..Before purchasing this one, i tried G-Tek 88, 60, 98 but for some reason i loved this one.
====Why i bought this?=====
Performance wise, this racquet is way too much comparable to its siblings series and is way cheaper than them. I use this for fun, definitely not for serious practice. I have tried few other cheap racquets but very soon i found out that those racquets are impacting my real game. It just doesn't do that. One piece of advice for beginners and intermediate players : People may convince you that you don't need an expensive racquet to improve your skill, and to some extent its true too..But that doesn't mean you can get anything cheap and start playing..I love this racquet coz its cheap and at the same time, its decent and let me explore my shots.
=====Why i don't play with this often?=====
1. I have 4 high end Yonex and Li-Ning racquets (and i spent days reading about them and then bought them) and i use one of them for serious practice. I have few other fun racquets and i use them when i am just exploring my shots or i am playing with a beginner as it keeps me struggling to improve my shot. NEVER PLAY WITH HIGH END RACQUETS ONLY. You need a mid range/low range racquet to improve your game.
=====How do this help an intermediate/advance player?=====
It provides you with lot of gears. You can possibly play all the shots with this racquet. Above all, it trains you for the grip, control and speed you will need while playing with an advance racquet. I love this racquet including all the G-Tek series racquets. Li-Ning definitely did a great work launching this series.
