The most important pieces of equipment you will use in sports is the badminton racket. According to your ability and style you can choose the better one. First of all you have to know about product and you should have product knowledge. While taking your decision, think about either you playing most powerful shots, or more with control and precision. Both badminton racket and shuttlecock are essential for a badminton player. Every Racket has a different power and control which represents different features of rackets. To implements your needs you can choose the better racket according to your preference.  We create three group into different players which is the beginner, the intermediate and the advance group. According to player we can design a table. When you see this table you can easily makes your decision.
How does weight differ between rackets, and what is suitable for me?
 Weight :- Each rackets has different weights with different product features. To determine the weight of the racket’ head it is categorizes into three category which is heavy-head, balanced, or light-head. These three group are translate to offend, balanced, defense players . The normal weight of racket is upto 80-95g. The weight of racket determines how one can swing a racket faster. One can swing faster when racket is lighter.  Generally, a lighter racket is more maneuverable than a heavy one. For an offensive player a head-heavy racket is required, and for a defensive one it is head-light racket..
What is racket balance, and what difference does it make?
Racket balance is a very important features to maintaining its balance. It is the player personal preference which can you select. Balance is the final characteristics of the racket. The most popular racket is upcoming which is  Head balanced racket. This racket is more stable and when it is swung it gives higher angular momentum. Head light Badminton racket are easy to handle and maneuverable, this type of racket is needed for defensive player.
 Are badminton racket made in different grip sizes?
 
There are different sizes of grip which affecting the game. This will depend upon the player’s choice and its hand size. The standard grip size of the racket is G4 which is mostly found in almost badminton rackets. For smaller hand player G5 grip size is specially designed. A player having larger hands will prefer a larger grip and having smaller hand player will prefer a smaller grip.
Which head shape suits me best?
While buying racquet you must think about the racket head’s shape and weight. To determining the racket’s power and control these two aspects play important roles. There are two major head shapes which is Isometric and Oval. The most popular head’ shape  racket is isometric or square racket which is easily found. The features of isometric head racket is  enlarged in size and sweet spot which give off-centered hit a better response. The oval-shaped head has a smaller in size and its sweet spot gives more concentrated while it hits the stocks.
Why is shaft flexibility important?
A badminton racket flexibility comes from the shaft, or the area between the handle and the strung area of the frame. When time is maximum, the more power you can give to shuttle through the badminton racket. To generate good power, more strength and best technique should be used. In general, the shaft flex and the string tension are the two factors which control how long the shuttlecock makes physical contact with the racket. Since it requires more power, a racketthat is too stiff can prove too difficult to use for someone with a small stature or who is only starting to learn how to play badminton. That enables you control the shot more accurately. For beginners flexible rackets are more suitable because you don’t have to give extra power to play strong shots. Since less strength is needed.
What materials are rackets made from?
 Now a days badminton racket is made up of  carbon fiber and graphite composite. In rackets 99% graphite is mainly used. The racket’s frame is generally made from light weight metal such as graphite or aluminum. Lightweight rackets provides to find and hit fast-moving shuttlecocks which gives greater frame flexibility, durability and performance without compromising value for money.
  Lightweight rackets is the most manageable and maneuverable in nature.
While making the string of a racket nylon is used  and it gives strong and long lasting product which is cheap.
String tension explained
Good string can change a lot of difference to your playing badminton racket game. String is very important and essential part of the racket. Good string gives more power in your technique when it is appropriately setup which give you good feel, more control.. To get more durability and improve the control of a racket high string tensions is used whereas to increase control players used thicker string, but many players prefer the feel of thinner strings because its gives more power. It is the only choice of player which one they prefer.
String tension is varies from player to player. The table below will assist you in choosing the correct racket string tension.

Oiling and Knocking of Cricket Bats – Basic Guide

Knocking of New Cricket Bats:

Knocking of New Cricket Bats is very Important part.Before use of every new bat, knocking process should be requires to prevent it from cracking and makes its long use. Knocking process should be done using a Hardwood bat mallet hit the face of the blade of the bat repeatedly for several hours.  This process provides good performance than a ball mallet and also help in to increase the speed. Start by hitting the middle of the bat just hard enough to create a dent. During this process make sure that you are knocking every region of the blade and ensures that no stickers should be there while knocking and should be equally and concurrently knocked. Don’t knock-in the back of the cricket bat. The edges of blade should  be rolls  with the angle of 90 degrees. This process should  be repeated, however each time it increases the pressure. When knocking in process has been completed, you have to check whether more oils should be requires or not. When you have finished he first 2-3 hours, you can progress to using the bat for out field practice and then in the nets against an old used high quality cricket ball. This should be practice in every three to four weeks.

 Oiling of Cricket Bats:

Before knocking process, oiling process should be done. This is done to prevent the wood from drying out. Oiling process make the bat soften. Raw Linseed Oil should be used to become the bat brittle. It is requires the bat should be oiled with raw linseed oil which makes the bat brittle. I suggest that oil should be applied 3 to 4 times before the process of knocking begins. It Ensure that the edges are also oiled. Spread the oil over the face of the bat using a small rag or your fingers. A full coat of oil should be apply in front, back and toe with less than one teaspoon full. Avoid oiling the splice of the bat which is the very top section of the blade. During the drying time the bat should be laid horizontally, and out of direct sunlight. After leaving it at least overnight repeat the procedure again but this time use even less oil than the first time. In other words give it only a very light rub with the same open weave cloth from before. Leave lying horizontally for at least 6 hours. After this oiling you are then ready to begin the Knocking In procedure.

Both the knocking and oiling process is very important aspect to improve the life and quality of cricket bats , it is worth to invert time on this process with proper technique otherwise you can harm you bat.

The Size of Junior Bats Vary from size 1 to size 6. It is important and recommended to refer below mention table while chose the junior cricket bats. This table will help young cricketers to chose right cricket bat size as per players age and height.

Weight of Cricket Bat:
Weight of the cricket bat is to be taken as crucial parameter as its impact on cricketer performance. A heavy cricket bat gives more bat swing and powerful strokes but on other hand it wouldn’t allow you to go for sharper cuts and drive shot. The weight of a full size cricket bat vary from 2 lb 6oz to 3 lb 2 oz. Normally Bad Manufacturer categorized to bat weight into 3 types. You can see to table for weight ranges in these categories. Heavier Bats are best suited for players who wants to hit the ball with more power and punch.

CRICKET BATS WEIGHTHeavier bats contain more wood and give more punch for hitting the ball but it restrict to sharper movement of bat. Medium weight cricket bats are give balance of power and swing. These bats give perfect cricket strokes selections.Light weight bats are good for players who wants to time the ball well with the help of share movement of bat. These bats are situated for technically correct cricket players.

Cricket Bat Grain Concept and its Impact of Cricket Bat Performance:
For a cricketer , it is very important to understand the critical parameters of a cricket bats. Critical parameters of cricket bat consists of Handle type (Long Handle or short Handle), Weight of the Cricket Bat , Balance of Cricket Bat , Willow type , Willow grade and grain size. Grains of the willow is very Important aspect as its impact the bat performance up to a great extent.

In other words we can say that grains on cricket bat decide the bat performance. A Cricket Bat grains vary from 5 grains to 20 grains. The shape of the grains may be wider or narrow. Wider grains means less grain number while narrow grain means more grain on cricket bats. Both shapes weather its narrow or wider grain are having there won advantages or disadvantages.
Grade one and two willow is the best willow but it is not necessary that it will play good. Grade one willow will have straight grain on face and 5 grain will be visible on face. For a perfect cricket bat if manufactures are using grade one willow then its important that there should no odd small knot on playing area.
Grade 3 willow is also a good quality willow type. It is a bleached willow which is having the half color on bat but there is no relation of color of willow its playing ability . The grains of grade three willow may not be perfectly straight. This willow consists of 4 numbers of grains. There will be some small knot may visible on willow face.
Grade four willow is bleached willow which is having half color  This type of willow could have any number of grains
If a bat is having less then 6 grains then it will called as wide grain bat. If a tree is grown faster then it means it will give narrow grain willow.
There are some other factors effect the grains size and it quality those are soil quality and amount of water.

Shape of the bat:
As a normal practice shape of the bat is vary manufacturer to manufacturer. Profile or shape of the bat should be choose careful which suits your playing style. For a normal or new player , it is recommended to chose traditionally designed shape with mid to low sweet spot. For hard hitter, players needs to chose bad with extra thick edge and large bow. This kind of profile will give additional power and swing to bad for making good stocks.
Position of Sweet Spot: Position of Sweet Spot in a Cricket Bat is very critical because it is decide the playing style of cricketer. A low sweet spot means , it is closer to bottom to cricketer bat. This profile of cricket bat would be suitable for front foot drive. This shape is normally common in traditionally designed bats.

CRICKET BATS SHAPE
Higher Sweet Spot Mean , Position higher up the bat. This gives additional power when ball hits bat higher up. Normally this profile will be suitable for players who like to play cut and pull shot.
Length of the sweet spot is very important , Long sweet spot covers more area means it gives more opportunities to play power shots. But Longer Sweet sport with extra wood will be heavier which some don’t suit the player who want cut shots. If you want to restrict the power then so must chose the smaller sweet spot. Smaller spot will have less wood.

Following are the Key Steps for caring any cricket Bat:

Knocking In: Some costly cricket bats comes in pre knocked condition while for other you may need proper knock in. Kashmir willow cricket bats don’t required the knocking. Knocking is process in which edges of cricket bat is compressed and stick. This Process is required-4-5 hours of work. Knocking process required cricket bat mallet.
