As this one is a head-light racket, so you can expect excellent support for a doubles game. 

How?

A head-light racket is suitable for defensive shots, and defense is something that needs to be done correctly in a doubles game.

Let’s see the technologies that this version of Nanoray offers.

The combination of Nanomesh and Carbon Nanotube tries to make up the less power offered by any head-light racket like this one. 

Nanomesh and Carbon Nanotube technologies that have been implemented at shaft and frame improves the power and movement.

The Aero-frame technology makes the head of the racket more aerodynamic. Eventually, you will get better swing speed.

The built-in T-joint lets you control the weapon better during the movement. 

It has an isometric form that offers an equal spacing between the ropes. Consequently, you will get a consistent beat even if you miss to hit the center. 

The string tension range is from 24-30 lbs, which is a perfect range for intermediate to advanced players.

Verdict

All in all, this one is an excellent racket for an intermediate player, and it doesn’t cost too much money. 

If you are an advanced player, you will probably want to avoid this option as I’ve listed some better options for you on my list like Yonex Duora 10, Arcsaber 11, Arcsaber 10, Astrox 77, DUORA Z Strike, etc. 

The clear, drop shots are good with this model. Smash is ok. Still, I believe this one is a perfect choice for a defensive player.
